Brickpath-960The Brick Path Guest Suites

The Brick Path Guest Suites, located approximately 2 miles from The University of California and Downtown Berkeley, is nestled in Berkeley’s Thousand Oaks neighborhood, where ancient sycamores and well-kept homes and gardens line the streets.

The popular Solano Avenue is just a short block away, and offers an array of ethnic and gourmet cafes, movie theaters, and exceptional shops.

The Brick Path, a classic 1923 Craftsman-style home, was converted by Wendy Sprague, Berkeley native, to a Guest Rental in 2001. Wendy refined the property over the years, with special attention to the ever-changing gardens.

In December of 2015 after fighting a battle with cancer, Wendy passed away. At the time, she was still accepting reservations at the Brick Path but had tried to simplify and no longer served breakfast or provided daily tidying.

Her son, Sean, and his family moved into the home and decided to continue serving Wendy’s guests at the Brick Path. Sean, Jessica, 2-year-old Ella and baby Kai at the end of 2016 again began accepting reservations.

 “We loved staying here! Your attention to detail is so evident and appreciated. ” (Pam & John)
