We've stayed over at the Stoney Brook Inn fall, spring, summer, and winter (tricky driving if snowing) on trips betwen the Bay Area and Portland, and appreciate the peaceful simplicity, straightforward accomodation, and hearty breakfasts here. Has the friendly ambience of a minshuku (Japan) or traditional European inn.

For years, I wondered what it was like to stay at the Stoney Brook Inn, as I checked into more expensive options down the street. I booked one night, then added a second, then again a third. This old logging boarding house does show it's age and could use a little sprucing up - yes, the wallpaper is peeling, the... More

The Inn is quite old, clean, and appears to have few recent updates. Staff were very friendly. I have been to Japan and there is a Japanese sense of hospitality and spirit. I was invited to view a traditional Japanese dance with live, authentic music in the morning. The hot tub is worn, but sits beneath huge trees that gave... More

...and that is 100% right. I don't want to sound negative; overall our experience was pretty good, but be sure you know what you are buying. The building must have been very grand in its day, and sits well at the head of the town's street; it has been chopped up a bit, and our room, at least, was VERY... More

This is a lovely location..both the inn itself and the incredible views of Mt Shasta behind. Very centrally located in McCloud.Currently it feels rather rundown, but with just a few improvements, this Inn could be really lovely...Replacing he stained carpets in hallways and room would be one suggestion. We never got hot water from 2nd floor shower during our 3... More

Hiromi made me feel just like a guest at her home. One evening I had a flat tyre whilst exploring in the woods; I was lost and there were roaming bears around. When I eventually got back late at night she cooked me a hot meal as there were no restaurants open. That's real hospitality. The B&B is a little... More

Negative comments in the prior Trip Advisor reviews caused me to veer away from reserving at the Stoney Brook Inn. My Japanese wife overruled me, since the Inn is run by Japanese who are interested in spirituality. She thought we should support the Inn by staying there. The Inn is a former boarding house constructed in 1924 for male lumber... More

The other reviews accurately describe the conscientious and friendly host, the tiny but clean rooms, the delicious breakfasts, but there is something else going on here that is harder to describe: the place has a heart. I tried the large hotel down the street with its new and more luxurious accommodations, but keep coming back to Stoney Brook for its... More

This place is falling apart and dirty. Coffee is lousy and served in styrofoam cups. The jacuzzi jets do not work, but we were not told this when we made the reservation. The bed was uncomfortable. The breakfast was good, but this is the first time I have stayed at a B&B where the owner did not eat with the... More

My room at the Stoney Brook Inn was--well, "intimate" would be a nice word for it. I was on the second floor; I think perhaps some of the first-floor rooms are a little more spacious. Still, I had all I needed to sleep comfortably. The hosts were friendly, the hot tub and sauna were nice, and breakfasts were outstanding (a... More
