We spent a long weekend with the goose and turrets in Montero. The hosts were very gracious and accommodated gluten free dietary needs with advanced notice. The property is roughly 100 years old and has migrated from being a municipal building to a private residence. The backyard has enormous hedges that give the property a hobbit-like feel in the back.... 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. We are repeat customers, and have always had wonderful service and a warm welcome. Emily and Raymond are charming, bookish and great travelers themselves, and full of interesting... More
