Kristopher and Kirtis are a few steps above in everything they attempt at the Mansion.
How do I describe this?? Well….#1 in importance for me is CLEANLINESS! Everywhere you looked and touched it was squeaky clean. Nice choice accent pieces. Almost everything in the whole B&B looked new. No spots, no dirt or dust. Every lightbulb worked. Nothing left to chance! Loved it! It will meet the most scrutinizing standard for cleanliness. Our bathroom was so incredibly clean it was a joy to spend the time in it we needed.
Both Kirtis and Kristopher are very friendly, loved to give their expert info. on things we discussed and their standard for things are very very close to the top! They have done and accomplished a lot and are very interesting to have conversations with. FUN! They are both very good at listening as well. A HUGE plus! Their attention to detail was the most stunning to us. Bailys and cream delivered in individual bottles one night, home made delicious cookies delivered another night. We had a great nespresso coffee maker in the room and had a very nice bottle of bordeaux in the room upon arrival. There were candy, apples, nuts etc. everywhere to snack on. Carbonated water, coffee, tea, regular water stationed in the dining room all day. There were a cocktail at 5pm and after dinner drinks form the cocktail bar at night.
The food and drink took this B&B to a new level. Kristopher has been cooking since he was 4, and consequently the chef. He put together delicious Grand Marnier pancakes, compotes and everything had been created with love, passion and care. The lemon tarts with blue berries were to die for. His coffee cake was moist and scrumptious. Everything was smooth and blended perfectly in the mouth. Nice esters! My palate was enchanted and stunned. He also explained in detail what and how the food was prepared and what mixes and does not mix. For someone like me who dislikes being in the kitchen….it is a very interesting experience to hear that detailed info. delivered with such zest. The knowledge Kristopher has when it comes to cooking is amazing. It was mesmerizing to listen to.
Kirtis made excellent mimosas, Mai Tai's and more rum scrumptious drinks we had one night. The alcohol taste were gone and all were just delicious. The attention to detail!
The last night we had such interesting conversations that the restaurant we had planned on going to had closed. So, without hesitation they asked if we wanted some cheese and crackers to eat. This is the difference! We had 3 great cheeses, and crackers, nuts, dried berries and chocolate dipped almonds. Excellent dinner!! They are giving, generous and kind.

We also loved Fox, their dog! Very sweet. Unfortunately we missed Calvin the senior 16 year old kitty.

One more thing that we feel was the cream on the cake, is this experience is that at 9:30AM is the brunch and everyone staying comes down at one time. At this time, Kristopher introduces the food and what is served. As everyone is gathered at one time is great for fun conversations between guests and Kirtis and Kristopher. We met some very interesting guests and had fun brunch conversations. I believe this is very much needed today!! I would never even consider going anywhere else in Bodega Bay or anywhere around there. This IS THE B&B to stay at. You will NOT be disappointed!
It's not cheap…and VERY MUCH WORTH IT!! We had a fantastic 2 nite stay!
Kudos to Kirtis and Kristopher. They are excellent at what they do! Oh, we got a goodie bag with us home. :-) That extra touch!
An experience that Exceeded our expectations! :-).

Room tip: Master Suite in the turret is great!!

We were fortunate enough to spend our honeymoon at the Bay Hill Mansion. The minute we set foot in the mansion, we felt right at home. The service and hospitality proved by Kirtis and Kristopher were impeccable. You will not find this level of attention to detail at a four star resort. Kristopher's brunches were plentiful, inventive and divine. Kirtis's cocktails were fresh and flavorful. Beyond all of this, they were the most caring innkeepers you will ever meet. There were some bad storms one night during our stay. They made sure we were aware of the bad weather, and insisted we stay in. They made sure we had what we needed so that we did not have to go out. We can never repay them for what they did for us that night! Do not think twice about booking your down time at Bay Hill. We highly recommend it!

My Husband and I have stayed in a few B and B's, and I must say we agree that Bayhill Mansion is by far the best. The hosts, Kirtis and Kristopher, treat you as Royalty! They simply aim to please....and they certainly have made us feel comfortable in this Gorgeous home!
The Victorian home has beautiful authentic antique furniture, fresh flowers, wonderful library filled with interesting books, and a warm fireplace to sip their complimentary beverage! And, all that was just in the living Room! The entire home is filled with interesting antique furniture and artwork.
Kristopher is an amazing chef and his meals with delight your taste buds and all other senses.... Kirtis is such a gracious host, his warm personality and charm made us feel right at home.
I would highly recommend the Bayhill Mansion, as we are currently planning our return..
for the next visit!

Remarkably comfortable and welcoming. Thoughtful, gracious hosts. Impeccable service with attention to our every need and countless gestures of kindness and care. And if Michelin awarded stars for breakfast, they would start here.

Room tip: The Master Suite is private, quiet, luxurious, and cozy.

My husband and I had an absolutely fantastic four night stay here in November. Kirtis and Kristopher are incredible hosts - their warmth and hospitality made us feel welcome and taken care of, and the breakfasts are truly to die for! I can't remember the last time I have felt so relaxed and pampered! The house is beautiful, our room was so relaxing, we loved sitting outside on the deck, reading by the fire bowl and taking in views of the bay, and we were only a very short distance from fine dining, walks on the beach, hiking, etc. We have been recommending Bay Hill Mansion to everyone we know! It is truly a unique and wonderful experience. Can't wait until we have the opportunity to go back.
