We were impressed with the charming Victorian atmosphere of this place. The backyard has a beautiful view of St. Anthony's Point. Very relaxing. The breakfast on both days was amazing and mouth watering.. We will return to Sandpiper as soon as we can..

Me and my wife stayed here during our 1year anniversary, and it was the perfect way to celebrate! Tracey was so nice and even greeted us with a little wine/snack platter when we arrived. She also took it upon herself to make dinner reservations for us for a really nice and scenic restaurant. As great as this place was, it's... More

My husband Frank and I (Margie) stayed here for a special 3 day birthday celebration for Frank. If I had pages to fill I could not say all I would want to say. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left (with tears in our eyes) it was absolutely perfect. Our room (Winston) was so adorable and Clean!!!... More

My boyfriend and I visited this lovely B&B to celebrate my 30th and escape from the grind. Note: we used a Groupon, so it was VERY affordable. The views were what made us choose this place, and you don't realize how breathtaking it is until you see if for yourself. The reason we will come back is not only the... More

We visited to celebrate our 39th anniversary. It is a quiet, peaceful B&B with spectacular views of the ocean. The house itself was interesting lots of history, including the photos on the fridge. The best thing was the warm & inviting innkeeper, Tracy. She made us feel welcome & calm. We enjoyed her tasty cooking. We have memories to treasure... More

My wife and I stayed here on a Sunday night in early March in the Clifton room. The room was very comfortable with an in-room fireplace, love-seat and a new king sized bed. The bay window overlooked the back garden, Pacific ocean and rock formations. It rained that night and the sound of the rain combined with the crashing waves... More

On one of the few overcast drizzly weekends of February, my husband and I spent a fabulous weekend at the Sandpiper House Inn. We stepped inside the parlour reception area at the craftsman style inn and felt as though we had stepped back in time. We sat besides the cosy fireplace in the wood paneled rooms where we chatted with... More

I met friends here for a girls weekend and what an amazing surprise! The views were so beautiful you feel like there is no reason to leave. The inn keeper, Tracy, was so welcoming and kind we connected immediately. One friends comment "every rooms view is so beautiful I don't know where I want to stand" really summed it up.... More

I have stayed here several times through the years, and keep coming back because this location is as close to heaven as you will find. Peace and quiet, whales cruising by, bunnies frolicking in the yard, and the warmest, comfiest bed imaginable with unobstructed ocean views you feel like you can reach out and touch it is so close.

We had a very nice and relaxing two days here at Sandpiper House. Bill was very nice and even upgraded our room for us. We stayed in the Weston which had spectacular views of the ocean. Both evenings he had cheese and crackers along with wine waiting for us when we arrived back at the inn from our day exploring... More
