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.

A very quaint B&B just a little north of Half Moon Bay. Walking distance to ocean and beach. Beautiful garden, excellent breakfast, home made cookies in the afternoon, and wood burning fireplace. What a lovely place. Would go back again anytime. Staff exceptional friendly

My husband, two dogs and I recently stayed at this lovely bed and breakfast to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was MARVELOUS!! Stunning location, outstanding service, and the food is to die for! Upon arrival we were greeted by a gal at the front desk named Dana. She was very delightful and took excellent care of us. Our room was...

We stayed in room 9 a balcony king. Room was very nice. Lots of windows and vaulted ceiling. It also had a view of the garden, which was quite pretty with birds and bunnies. Lots of windows throughout the inn and going up the staircase gives it an open and airy feeling. It is very secluded so really quiet. There...

This lovely B&B is a surprise to find just south of San Francisco. The grounds are lovely. You are close to trails and a walk on the beach. Breakfast is nice, as well as, the fireplace in the room. The rooms are a bit tired and need a refresh. They did not put out the afternoon snacks or cookies while...

This is possibly my favorite inn of all time. It exceeded all my expectations in: location - quiet street 30 minutes from SFO, steps away from beautiful cypress trails and the marine reserve, comfort - delicious breakfasts (artichoke quiche), homemade cookies, quietest room ever even though the inn was nearly full, bed and pillows wonderful, service - Krista and Ray...

Very lovely stay in a French style B&B. Well kept rooms with real fireplace & friendly common areas. Late afternoon snacks & tea or wine available. Also warm breakfast in a nice room with a view to the gardens. Place is located adjacent to an eco-friendly reserve with beach & tide pools. Will definitely return.

We knew this inn when it was previously owned by a gracious innkeeper. Our return here Dec. 2011 was a bitter disappointment. All the beautiful decor gone, everything strictly Comfort Inn style, the lovely garden quietly dying from lack of care. No one met us when we arrived, and our key was in an envelope taped to the front door....

It's unbelievable this B&B is so close to San Francisco. The drive into downtown was just a half an hour. The property and surrounding town is so peaceful and a wonderful place to unwind. There are walking paths that lead to a couple of different beaches. The beach is only a 5 minute walk away and the tidal pools are...
