How far are you from the University of Oklahoma?

We are located about 1 mile away from OU. Many of our guests enjoy walking it and guests from the university love the proximity for that very reason. And you can walk it anytime of the year.

Check-out is at noon.

Is there free Wi-Fi?

Absolutely. All of our rooms and cottages offer Wi-Fi and you can access it from the shared areas of the inn as well like the library, patio, and dining room.

What’s the weather in Norman like?

The weather in Norman is mild most of the time. There is extreme heat in July and August while October and November provide some of our favorite weather during the year.

How far are you from the airport?

The OKC airport is about 25 minutes away and is used by most of our guests who arrive via air.

Is your bed and breakfast accessible in the winter?

Yes! Often we have just a handful of snow-covered days during the entire winter. We are open and accessible to guests year-round. And no matter the time of year, we’re in the heart of Norman with many things to do in nearby areas.

Do you have a pool?

We do not have a pool. However, several of our rooms offer jetted tubs or private hot tubs and there is a beautiful patio and many outdoor living spaces at our inn. Our guests have complimentary use of the Cleveland County YMCA (10 mins by car), which features an indoor pool and a complete state-of-the-art workout facility.

What restaurants do you recommend nearby?

Being a part of the community ourselves, this is one of our favorite questions to answer for guests. Who doesn’t want to eat well when they’re in town? Some of our local favorites include Legends, Tarahumara, Sweet Basil Thai, Scratch, Blu, The Winston, Benvenuti’s, The Diner, Fancy That, Neighborhood J.A.M., The Garage, Sam’s Southern Eatery, and Sergio’s. Most of these are within walking distance of the inn as well.

One of our favorite things about having an urban bed and breakfast is that we are close to so many great places to eat. You can check out our posts on Best Restaurants in Norman and Best Romantic Restaurants in Norman.

What is there to do nearby?

Another great thing about being an urban inn is access to great things to do in the heart of Norman. There are so many great things to do like experiencing Campus Corner, OU sports, OU events, museums on campus – Fred Jones and Sam Noble, 2nd Friday Art Walk, Sooner Theatre, Riverwind Casino, Lake Thunderbird,  and urban hiking and outdoor park at Sutton Wilderness.

What things are within walking distance to our inn?

Walden’s Cleaners and Laundry is an easy walk, as is The Cellar liquor store, Kidoodle’s toy store and office supply, Republic Bank, Andrews Park, City of Norman offices, the public library, not to mention the U.S. Post Office. The Amtrak Train Depot and a bus stop (CART) are right out our door!
