It pains me to write this review as I discussed with the new owner David that I would not, he also asked me not to write a review because he and his partner Jerry, had just taken ownership of the business prior to us staying there. My understanding is the property will be closed for renovation and will also have... More

First off, we had a great experience at the Olde Thyme Inn, however, we don't want to spend to much time on the B&B review because new owners will be taking over in a month. It is evident that current and long time owners Rick and Kathy have put a great deal of time and thought into their B&B. The... More

Wonderful stay in Half Moon Bay at the gracious Old Thyme Inn. We stayed in the lavender and chamomile rooms with our kids. Of bed linens were divine, and amenities were incredible. The clawfoot tub was a total treat, making our stay even more relaxing! The charming gardens outside boasted fresh fig trees, Meyer lemons, tomatoes and a wonderful array... More

Beautiful property! Clean, well-maintained house with all of the amenities. Beautiful garden and patio area. Spacious, nicely-furnished rooms. Great full breakfast and excellent wine and snacks late afternoon/early evening. Free bottled water as well. The owners/hosts are friendly, helpful and take pride in their B&B. I'd highly recommend them to friends, family and business colleagues!

We live two hours south of Half Moon Bay and have stayed in the area a couple of times before, but this was our first time at the "Old Thyme Inn". I had called to inquire about Saturday, August 16th for 1 night and they had one room left so I took it! Rick was very professional over the phone... More

Our first experience with a bed and breakfast and would do it all over again. I absolutely loved this Inn. The food was delicious, the company was fun and our room overlooking the garden was so quaint. A perfect peaceful place!

My husband and I stayed here for our 2nd wedding anniversary and we loved it. We stayed in the Rosemary room. Rick was a wonderful innkeeper and he and his wife are fabulous cooks! For breakfast the first morning, I had blueberry muffins, an apple baby, and a fruit cup. The second morning, it was lemon rosemary bread, bacon, toast,... More

I had a wonderful stay at Old Thyme Inn. The innkeepers were extremely knowledgabe about the area and very skilled at owning and operating a bed and breakfast. The rooms were clean and the house well kept. The atmosphere was great, and I definitely felt like I was pampered and giving the right amount of attention and space for a... More

From the moment you make your reservation to the moment you leave, you are at peace. This is our second visit here & we will continue to return. The rooms are gorgeous! They provide EO bath supplies (shampoo, lotion & bath salts). Make it a point to have breakfast in the morning (which is included). Everything is homemade and delish!... More
