About the England House Bed and Breakfast

Originally built in 1902, The England House Bed & Breakfast is named after its original owners and builders, master stone cutter William England and Barbara Michelbach-England. Since then, the historic significance and character of the house has been carefully preserved, giving each visitor a glimpse through a window of time. The distinctive red-and-white, locally quarried and hand-cut stone, best-preserved pressed-tin ceilings, the beautifully restored Louis XIV and XV French antiques throughout the house give the air of a classic, Old World manor.

Spending Your Stay with Us

Your outstanding vacation getaway in Flagstaff begins the moment you arrive, when your hosts introduce you to the history of this famous house and assist with a local’s perspective and insight, sharing valuable sightseeing information, guiding you to shops, museums, galleries and the perfect selection of restaurant choices customized for you, all within walking distance of The England House Bed & Breakfast.

Each morning at our B&B begins with a full, hot breakfast, starting with a fresh, seasonal fruit dish. The entrée may be an organic egg and cheese soufflé or blue corn pancakes with toasted pecans – maybe even Chiles Rellenos or light lemon pancakes with raspberry sauce. Our menu changes daily, but you’re sure to love the elegant tastes that seem as though they would be found at the most upscale dinner tables in New York or Los Angeles. Take breakfast on the sun porch to enjoy the morning warmth with elegant linens, fine china and silver and unsurpassed hospitality. We’ll also keep coffee and tea on to enjoy anytime, whether you take a cup on the sunny deck, in the Victorian parlor or sitting in the rockers on the front porch just watching daily mountain-town life passing by.
