Goose & Gander occupies the same old Craftsman home as its popular predecessor, Martini House. It's a date-friendly, casual yet intimate Napa Valley restaurant and bar serving comfort food. On Sundays, you'll find live music outside where the patio/lawn seats over 80 people. Our lunch included duck fat fries and polenta cake appetizers, mushroom soup and a mashup of fried... More

Enjoyed my short getaway at the historic building, with the lovely hosts, beautiful gardens, and charming suite - the Goose Room. Breakfast with great teas and dishes along with a lively conversation with fellow guests and the hosts was a great start to the day. The entire experience was a treat. Hope to get back some day.

We recently stayed here. The coast was foggy but being here was a treat. Enjoyed the owners and all the history that surrounds this inn. So many comforts and lots of antiques. Breakfast was outstanding and enjoyable.

We had a very fine experience at the Goose and Turrets. The food was excellent. Our bedroom-bathroom was just what we needed. The owners generously allowed our daughter and son in law to partake of afternoon tea with us. The owners are very experienced with the world, and we got to hear about their first hand experiences in Finland and... More

I stayed here to be close to the starting line of a local marathon. I was by myself & it was so quite but I could hear the couple talking in the room next to mine, I was glad I had my ipad with me for some type of activity & noise. I was in the goose room, no alarm... More

If you enjoy traditional B&Bs, you may really enjoy it here. It is clear that Raymond and Emily take great pride in their home. There are many lovely antiques. Every surface and inch of wall space is covered with nick knacks and/or memorabilia of their travels. They are kind people. That said... This just wasn't the place for us. I... More

Dear PismoLulu: Thank you for taking the time to review the Goose & Turrets B&B. I regret that you had unfulfilled expectations of what our inn offers, but we enjoyed your staying here. Yes, we are a traditional bed and breakfast and the furniture and art do reflect our interests and history. I didn't feel like your great aunt -... More

1. Interesting and historic building, at a beautiful setting in an ecclectic No. California town. 2. Breakfast! Full, complete, delicious, wholsome. Forget lunch. 3. Inside is like a museum with treasures from around the world. 4. Teatime conversation and treats. 5. Towel warmer, featherbed and gas fireplace, no tv. 6. Relaxing, quite.

My mother, daughter, and I have been staying in the Hummingbird Room twice a year since my daughter was an infant. We live only a half hour away but feel we've come to another world--serene and engaging. Emily and Raymond--with their great stories, helpful sightseeing advice, and wry humor--give the G and T its personality. They grow and cook much... More

We loved our visit to Goose and Turrets! We stayed in the Goose room, cozy and comfortable with a king sized bed, a gas fireplace, and a view of the back garden.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Goose & Turrets is an old-fashioned B&B where you are pampered with comfortable beds and generous four-course breakfasts. There is also an afternoon tea of freshly brewed teas from around the world accompanied by savouries and sweets - in a setting of lively conversation. The house was built in 1907 as a grocery, post office, and town hall. After its long and checkered history, the Hoche-Mongs converted it into a bed and breakfast in 1983 and have been welcoming happy guests ever since. It sits in an acre of gardens which contains an Appalachian courting swing, two hammocks, and a bocce ball pitch. Montara Beach is a half-mile walk away as is a terrific Peruvian restaurant with a huge view. Nearby one may fish, kayak, go whale watching, aero-sightseeing, beach combing, hiking, biking, antiquing, shopping in quaint stores at Princeton Harbor and in Half Moon Bay, explore Montara Mountain or go down the coast to Pescadero's famous restaurant and market or continue to Año Nuevo to encounter mammoth elephant seals. On a foggy day, you may choose to just sit by the fire and read and listen to classical music. It's a good place for adventure and for complete lethargy. ... more   less
