Located on College Street in Auburn’s North College Historic District is a lovely bed and breakfast known as the Crenshaw Guest House. Built in 1890 by Professor Crenshaw, this Victorian-style house served as the professor’s home before he opened the second floor to Auburn University students. 

Today, the Crenshaw Guest House offers comfort, history, and modern conveniences to visitors wishing to stay for an Auburn game day weekend, a romantic getaway, or just to experience all the loveliest village has to offer. This bed and breakfast is within walking distance to downtown Auburn and Auburn University’s campus. Meticulous attention to detail, from the comfort of beds adorned with cotton linens, plush robes and luxury amenities, create an ambiance of carefree comfort to suit every taste
