An Urban Oasis

Posted by – Dale Mathes, Code Enforcement Officer

Right down the street from Oakland University and across from the Auburn Hills City Campus is an opulent, plush bed and breakfast, the Cobblestone Manor.  Located at 3151 University and nestled in evergreens and lush vegetation, this restored 1840’s manor is home to innkeepers Heather and Paul Crandall.


The manor abounds in beautiful antiques and a fireplace in every room plus modern amenities like flat screen TV’s, whirlpool tubs, high speed wireless internet and always a batch of Heather’s homemade cookies in the dining room. And the breakfast isn’t just some buns and berries: French toast with homemade, fresh syrup, sausages and fruit was on the menu when I inquired.

Contact the manor at 248-370-8000 or online at When online, take a virtual tour and select from a choice of a half dozen beautiful rooms.

For an overnight stay or a grand weekend, look into Cobblestone Manor. It’s a little bit of luxury, right across the street.
