Amazing hospitality, beautiful, calm surroundings moments from the ocean, cold wine, and a gracious hostess who provided dairy free cream cheese just for me - it doesn't get any better than this! The little things were all done perfectly.

When we knew that we needed to stay in a B&B while our home was being tented, I Googled a list of B&B's in the Carlsbad area. I made maps and then before our tenting, I drove to Carlsbad to check them out. I drove by those that were on my list but most had NO curb appeal. I stopped... More

Warm, welcoming experience. Next month will be our third consecutive year that we will be staying at the Kate Stanton Inn. Carol and Liz made us feel as though we were at home. The food and accommodations are exceptional. The location is very convenient to other tourist attractions in southern California. We have no hesitation is giving the Kate Stanton... More

Absolutely THE BEST, most pleasant B & B experience you will ever have. Our family has been fortunate to have stayed several times and cannot wait to be there again at the end of March 2015. The place is gorgeous in and out with a fantastic view of the ocean and lagoon. The food, atmosphere, scenery, architecture, cleanliness and freshness... More

We so enjoyed our stay at the Kate Stanton Inn. Upon arrival we were greeted by the Innkeeper, Liz, with warm cookies and lemonade and a friendly chat in her beautiful kitchen. We loved our 2 night stay in the Nantucket Room. Spotless and spacious. Sadly, the weather was rainy during our visit so we could not enjoy the outdoor... More

This must be one of the most friendliest bed and breakfast I have ever stayed in, the hospitality, the welcome, the helpfulness of the hosts is second to none. From the moment you arrive, you know this is somewhere special. The food, the rooms are perfect and it just feels like a totally happy home. Lizzie and Carol could not... More

We loved our stay in the Chatham Suite which has a very generous and beautiful bathroom, and comfortable, spacious bedroom. The rooms are beautifully decorated and appointed and the hospitality spectacular! We loved getting to know Liz and Carol and would definitely recommend this for your stay.

We had a wonderful Christmas week in Encinitas with our two grown daughters, and Carol and Liz could not have been more welcoming and accommodating, down to making us sandwiches when we arrived, or letting us keep our wine in the refrigerator. We really felt like guests in their home! The rooms were perfect - immaculate and so tastefully appointed... More

This was our best B&B experience ever! Not only is the house beautifully renovated and appointed, but Liz and Carol are the warmest, loveliest, most hospitable innkeepers we have encountered. Yet they are sensitive, so they do not become intrusive. Paul and I stayed two nights in the Nantucket Suite, which couldn't have been more peaceful -- serene décor, interesting... More

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at the Kate Stanton Inn. We are from San Diego and did not have much time for travel. Only 30 minutes from our home, the Inn felt like a world away. The Inn is welcoming, well designed, and so clean it gleams. We stayed in the Chatham Suite, an enormous-yet cozy-space over- looking... More
