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

Innkeepers Richard and Kathy were wonderfully accommodating. Location is ideal, garden is lovely, afternoon wine and cheese relaxing, and the claw-foot tub best of all! Cozy robe, beautiful bedding, aromatic bath salts and lotion. Add to all that a truly fresh and delectable breakfast - it all made for a perfect visit. I would recommend Old Thyme Inn to anyone...

Everything about this B&B was thought out with care and detail, as with the narrative provided by the deep-voiced innkeeper. The arrival begins with a short tour by the innkeeper of the facilities and the herb garden. Rick, the innkeeper has such a soothing deep voice with enunciations of a radio personality, that it's hard not to pay attention. He... More

The Inn is exactly as described. The rooms are comfortable and attractively decorated in this well-maintained older home. The hosts are gracious and welcoming and definitely do not hover. The Inn is right on Main Street. You can walk to all the shops and restaurants on Main Street and the Public Library. It is less than 1/2 mile to the... More

delicious breakfast, intimate sweet rooms, we loved the oregano room - could wake up to birds chirping and soak in a hug tub with lavendar infused bath salts. So perfect for a weekend getaway - also prime location for the main st stroll and 20 min walk to the beach. The best part- the host & wine/cheese hour in the... More

We loved the pleasant location, room, and service. Rick and Kathy were gracious hosts and even packed us a to go breakfast for the early airport morning. So glad we stopped even it was just for one night. Half Moon Bay had terrific restaurants and shops.

We only had one night, but were the only people there that night, and were offered to move to a room with a lovelier view. My husband commented the next day that this is the way B&B's should all strive to be-accommodating, very informative (we had a couple of spectacular stops the next day that were mentioned by Rick), and...
