In the late 19th century, Orange Grove Avenue in South Pasadena was known as “Millionaire’s Row” because of its many beautiful mansions. Some of these homes are still around today, including The Bissell House Bed and Breakfast, which was built in 1887. In its heyday, Bissell House was the site of several extravagant events—perhaps the most memorable of these was a dinner party honoring Albert Einstein.
Today, the three-story Victorian home is a charming bed and breakfast with seven guest rooms. Each room is individually decorated with antiques, overstuffed chairs, and mimes pretending to be ottomans. The inn lies just a half-mile from Mission Street, where you’ll find restaurants, art galleries, and antique shops.
