Taraji P. Henson“I stayed at THE most elegant and charming bed and breakfast in Brooklyn—Akwaaba Mansion. The owner is from DC and a Bison–like me!! Akwaaba is my new getaway. I honestly felt like I was at home—and the food, mmm-mmm good!”

“Thank you for making my last day as a single woman-and my first night as a married one-so memorable. As a Brooklyn resident, it was great to ‘get away’ without going away.”

Mos Def“I love this place! No really. It’s my home away from home when I’m in the city, but I’m trying to figure out how to get them to sell it to me so I can really make it my home.”

“We anxiously entered the Mansion, because what we could see from outside the front door was already overwhelming. Then we went from room to room and fell in love with the heart of this house.”

Perfection on So Many Levels
My boyfriend and I have stayed here three times in the past year, and it’s always such an amazing experience! The staff is always extremely friendly and accommodating to our vegetarian diet. They go out of their way to explore exciting food options to serve us, always fresh and delicious! The mansion itself is beautiful, and the town is really cute with a few good restaurants/vintage shops for those looking to explore!

Absolutely fabulous!
Where do I begin? From the decor and ambiance to the graciousness of the owner and staff, The Mansion at Noble Lane is magnificent! Breakfast was sinfully delicious, and I slept like a baby at night in my king-sized bed. I will return with friends in tow to enjoy the experience again.


Most Relaxing Getaway!
My husband and I were in much need of a relaxing getaway. This is exactly what we got at The Mansion at Noble Lane. The mansion is so beautiful! Our room was so comfortable! Our stay exceeded our expectations with an amazing massage, the most delicious meals, snacks at tea time, and just the overall attention to details. Everything was immaculate! We were able to just spend some amazing couple time and take naps. It was so quiet! We are ready to book our next trip in the spring when the snow melts away and the flowers are blooming!

Extremely Accommodating Hostess and a Very Relaxing Vacation!
I visited Noble Lane for a second time with my family and a few other families. Where else can you go skiing in the morning and swimming in a heated pool in the afternoon? I am especially grateful to Monique. We had car trouble and she personally came to drive me and my family to the mansion while my car was getting towed. That was a personal touch that we wouldn’t find anywhere else!!!

All the way from Bermuda to Noble Lane
One of the most beautiful properties I have ever experienced! I was here for a women’s empowerment retreat and felt warmly welcomed (despite the snow and freezing temperatures!) from check in to check out. The entire property is breathtaking, and the service (including preparation and service of meals) was first rate. I highly recommend this property, especially to those looking to ‘escape’ the ‘busyness’ of life.

“How do I begin? Our stay was absolutely fabulous. From the time we walked in the door, our innkeeper Brian was the perfect host. The rooms are a dream ripped from the pages of history. Akwaaba is heavenly.”

“To be honest, I’d almost rather keep this place a secret. It is by far the best place to stay in DC. The experience is fantastic all the way around: the rooms, breakfasts, nightly social hours, and especially the hosts, who are absolutely perfect.”

“At first I wanted to know which of my Smart Co-workers assigned the Romance room for me, knowing we were here on business. But WOW! Romance is a state of mind, and this room was a wonderful blessing for reminding me of that. I wish there was an Akwaaba in every city! ”

Nicole Smith

“Thank you so much for the haven you have given us. Your other guests will become our life-long friends. Keep doing what you do, and you will touch many lives! ”


“Thank you for making my 50th birthday unforgettable. Your hospitality, patience and meticulous attention to detail made lasting impressions on all of us. There is no greater gift one human being can give to another than the gift of inspiration, and Akwaaba gives it in abundance.”
