From our Guestbook

It’s hard to express how much I appreciate your warmth, humor, curiosity, kindness, and open-heartedness. It’s not too much to say that the world is a better place because of the community you are building here. It’s wonderful to see the pride you take in your guests as part of an extended family. You are too modest to think so yourselves, but you are a model of a life lived with intention, and are such a wonderful team as a couple who support each other with love and humor. I thought I was coming here for a bed close to the Convention Center, and I got a delicious spiritual meal. And I got the $20 back that I left in the sink!

With appreciation,

Another year another wonderful stay. If I am away from home I always want it to be at 9 Baldwin. ​

After 11 nights I feel like I live here. I’ve enjoyed the conversations with you and the many interesting guests, the overall feel at Baldwin, the art, the new beds!, the warmth. Thanks for all your tips on what to do.  What a special place you create. I hope to be back soon.

It has been wonderful to find your oasis in the city. I’ve loved our morning chats and laughter. I can’t wait to return.
