This is great little bed and breakfast type place (although they do not serve breakfast). The room was clean and good looking. Our room came with a closet and big bathroom with old school claw foot tub. The tub is just that, however, not a shower. The room does not have AC, but you real don't need it with the... More

We stayed at 11 Wharf Road on the very last night of an 18 day and night road trip from New Mexico to San Francisco. There are only a few places to stay in Bolinas and 11 Wharf Road comes out a clear winner. There are only two rooms and the major difference between them is the size of the... More

What a lovely B & B right in the heart of town. The front porch is perfect for sipping coffee and people-watching. Relaxed vibe makes this a great place to stay. Our family had both rooms -- which are impeccable, comfortable and complete with everything you might need. The proprietor is helpful with knowing the tides, and where to get... More

I've been coming when I want some time out of the city. Walking out to check the surf after waking up here is pure pleasure. Comfortable, clean rooms with clawfoot bathtubs and a location right next to everything. The location couldn't be better, the vibe is really friendly, and I love that there are only a couple of rooms. Its... More

Wow, I was surprised to see someone say 'filthy', then I realized that the reviewer was talking about the previous business at this address. Other than the address, there is no relationship between the current B&B and the Blue Heron Inn. The current owner, we're told, has spent the past year refurbing the building. The girlfriend and I spent last... More

I came with my grown-up daughter. Reserved 2 rooms. I could have lived with it, having spent a fair amount of time in third world countries. She couldn't deal with dirty rooms, towels and linen. The rooms are above a restaurant that has been closed for years. Nice location, but bring your own bedding and towels. We didn't check in,... More

We are the new owners of 11 Wharf Road. We completely refurbished the rooms in 2013 and have new beds and linens. We look forward to having you visit and enjoy this historic farmhouse in downtown Bolinas. More

This was an AWESOME place about 4 years ago. Now it's run by the son of the previous owners. He is REALLY nice, and REALLY odd (keep in mind this is bolinas). The Pros: Incredible location. Charming building and rooms. Nice guy. The Cons: Owner's son lives in the garage and is really odd. Likes to walk around with his... More
