My wife and I stayed here a few weeks ago on our way up the Pacific coast from San Francisco to Seattle. We stayed in a "really nice queen" room. Overall for the price we were very pleased. The staff was very friendly upon check in and we also got a complimentary glass of champagne since it was my wife's... More

My Husband and I recently stayed at the Carter House Inn and stayed in the Main House in the Grand Suite. The room was beautiful and the Jacuzzi tub was amazing! However I was a little disappointed with the cookies, which were not fresh baked, and the breakfast. For breakfast you get the fruits and pastries buffet style and then... More

if you are looking for a very special Bed & Breakfast / Hotel, Carter House Inn is it! A very warm-welcoming place. I have been coming here for years and have never been disappointed. Even an one-night stay is a mini vacation. Mister D.

My wife and I have stayed at the Carter House Inn a number of times and it just keeps getting better. Great service and Great food, and a wine list as good as being in New York City. We will return again and again to see if we can sleep in all the different buildings. Anne's House last time was... More

My fiance stayed at the Carter House to recover after a raucous wedding of college friends. It was the perfect place to relax in true comfort. Our room was charming and quiet, the restaurant was delicious, and all of the staff were very gracious. We particularly loved the bathrobes in our room! Since there isn't much touring to do in...

Loved the character of this hotel and the check-in staff were extremely friendly offering us an upgrade as we were on honeymoon. The room was beautiful with a gas fire, whirlpool bath and separate lounge area. The bathroom was clean and offered plenty of complimentary toiletries. The room was really quiet and it has proved to be the best night... More

This is by far one of the nicest places we have ever stayed over the years. From the moment you walk in the door you are surrounded by comfortable elegance, charm, and hospitality. The young lady who "took us over", Elena, was pretty, very bright, and very well mannered. Our first floor room was perfect (there were four rooms on... More
