Far from a remnant of Pasadena's past, the Bissell House is a lovingly maintained piece of history. This elegant and charming Pasadena bed and breakfast is as vibrant today as it was in the late 1800s when it anchored the famous mansions of Orange Grove Avenue. Today, this area is known as Millionaire's Row, and you can experience it for yourself among breathtaking interior spaces and five gorgeously decorated rooms. Today's features, including a pool and solarium, appear seamlessly and highlight your modern-day Pasadena romantic or historical vacation. You'll find the daily coffee, newspaper and pastries are perfect for starting each day in Pasadena, California.

You can't help but feel romantic at the Bissell House. It recalls the late 1800s - one of the most romantic periods in US history - so accurately that the two of you will feel transported back to the Victorian Era. This is a classic romantic bed and breakfast experience in modern-day South Pasadena.


This is what you picture when you think of luxury and historic charm on your Pasadena vacation. Each of the five spaces at the Bissell House is steeped in sumptuous period furnishings and spectacular historic design and architecture. A modern solarium and a pool blend effortlessly into your getaway!


What is now known as the Bissell House was built in 1887, and has been owned by prominent businessmen, physicians, architects and the daughter of the Bissell vacuum cleaner magnate. Today it stands much as it has throughout the past century, ready to lend charm and elegance to your Pasadena getaway.
