Holmberg House Bed & Breakfast
Located across the street from the University of Oklahoma campus, the Holmberg House Bed & Breakfast in Norman was originally built as a private residence by Professor Fredrik Holmberg. This handsome and historic 1914 craftsman house features individually decorated guest rooms with private baths, wireless Internet access and cable television. Book a stay at the Holmberg House and enjoy lounging by the living room fireplace, rocking on the front porch or strolling through the extensive flower gardens complete with a koi pond and waterfall. A three-course gourmet breakfast is served daily.
Professor Holmberg was the first Dean of the University of Oklahoma’s College of Fine Arts. Dean Holmberg strongly believed that fine arts education was needed, not only at the University of Oklahoma, but throughout Oklahoma. Dean Holmberg was honored in 1938 when the Fine Arts Building at the University of Oklahoma was renamed as Holmberg Hall. Holmberg Hall still stands on the OU campus and is within easy walking distance of Holmberg House.
The Holmberg family lived in the craftsman-style residence until the early 1940s when the residence was purchased by Leota and Sam Hale. The Hale family lived in the house until 1993 when the residence was bought and renovated by Richard Divelbis and his wife, Jo Meacham, as a bed and breakfast. The Holmberg House was featured in Country Inns Bed & Breakfast Magazine in August 1996, as well as in The Official Guide to American Historic Inns. Since its establishment, the Holmberg House Bed & Breakfast has been a mainstay on the corner of Boyd and DeBarr, allowing its welcoming gardens and distinctive architecture to host many travelers in its effortless elegance of simplicity of form, local natural materials, visibility of handicraft and workmanship.
It has all the charm of a 100-year-old home and all the comforts of 21st century technology. Each of the five rooms feature private bathrooms, flat screen TVs, free WiFi and blow dryers. Some of the rooms have jacuzzi tubs, showers or a tub and shower combination. The Sundance room has an additional twin bed that accommodates a third person. Guests are offered complimentary fresh fruit, snacks and refreshments. The Holmberg House Bed & Breakfast is just two blocks from the University of Oklahoma football stadium and one block from all the shopping, entertainment and restaurants on Campus Corner.
Come relax on the incredible front porch or by the koi pond, enjoy the beautifully landscaped grounds, celebrate special occasions, attend an OU Football game, have meetings and enjoy the three-course gourmet breakfast. Whether you are in Norman to stay for an overnight stay, vacation, romantic getaway or just looking for lodging near the University of Oklahoma, allow Holmberg House Bed & Breakfast to make your time in Norman comfortable and cozy.
