We stayed here for 3 nights recently and found it to be more than expected. The location seems secluded but close to everything, the beach, restaurant, etc. Our room opened out into the cottage garden where it looked like something from a Disney movie, birds, rabbits, hummingbirds and gorgeous flowers! Every morning there was a nice full breakfast waiting for...

The location is quiet and the inn is lovely. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. You get the feeling you are in someone's home where you are welcome but given your privacy. You have the opportunity to meet other guests over breakfast or in the evenings in the comfortable and cozy living area. There is a nice garden area...

Lovely B&B. Breakfast was superb with quiche one day/strata the next, along with fruit, pastries, cereal, etc. Coffee was wonderful. Rooms were large, quiet with a balcony overlooking a flower garden. Bunnies and birds galore. Lovely hiking trail directly behind the Inn covered in Cypress trees.

My mom, sister, and I celebrated a birthday here 6/29-6/30. Wow, we were incredibly impressed! When we arrived the gal checking us in was so helpful and friendly. As soon as we had settled in our room, the evening appetizers were being served...delicious! Then we flipped through the restaurant binder and found a place for dinner. When we returned, our...

A beautiful, comfortable inn close to San Francisco. The charming town of Half Moon Bay is nearby with good restaurants. The breakfast was delicious, staff were very courteous and helpful and the rooms (this was our second visit) are all well appointed. The gardens are a joy and the abundant wildlife delightful.
