My husband and I stayed for one night in October during a walking trip from San Francisco to Half Moon Bay. We had no car and were walking "inn to inn" based on an itinerary suggested in the book Walkabout Northern California by Tom Courtney. The Goose and Turrets provided a good overnight stopping place in the middle of our... More

Tucked away away in the back of Montara is a gem of a bed & breakfast in a historic building that used to serve as town hall, post office and a general store (among other incarnations). The current owners, Emily and Raymond Hoche-Mong converted it into a delightful bed & breakfast. They serve tea at 4:30 for those who have... More

There is literally nothing good that can be said about this place. I feel extremely cheated for the amount I paid to stay here. It is definitely time for this b&b to close its doors. The house is old, smells and is not cleaned properly. The bed had springs going into our backs. There are no locks on the bedroom... More

A very delightful place to relax. We loved our conversations with Raymond and Emily, always informative and filled with fun stories. Breakfast was never disappointing. If you are looking for modern, posh accommodations, this is not the place for you. If you want a place that is comfortable, peaceful,a place to come and go, this is a nice place. Expect... More

I went to this b&b to have a relaxing overnight stay while on vacation with my girlfriend. As I was greeted at the place, I asked if they had any toothpaste. The lady came back with a small tube and gave it to me. When I brushed with it I started feeling sick. I looked at the tube and it... More

This is the place where they overcharge your credit card weeks after and they are big fraud inn.sharing credit card details with them is not safe.place itself is remote even people around have not heared about it.owners are creepy at best and I hope trip advisor is socially responsible organisation to let it post and let people save themselves.

This is the third derogatory review you have posted about a one-night stay. You were charged 1/2 the rate for one night because of a late check out that left the room in such a condition that it could not be re-rented that evening. We regret that the experience was unpleasant for both of us. More

My husband and I have stayed at the Goose and Turrets B&B several times. It is our "go-to" place to get away from our "big city" life. The owners are gracious and responsive to our needs, as well as extremely informative re: restaurants in the area. A very nice tea is served in the late afternoon in their pleasant, somewhat... More

Thank you for your kind review. You seem to understand what we try to do and appreciate that approach. Do come back soon - the garden and greenhouse are flourishing with fresh herbs and veggies. Emily Hoche-Mong More

I'm seeing some of the other reviews for this place and seriously have to question where these people were staying; I found Emily and Raymond to be fantastic in every regard possible. I legitimately felt like a welcomed guest in their house. And what a house! It's funky in all the right ways while still managing to feel cozy and... More

Thank you for your perceptive review. Yes, the people you identified did travel together and did not ever eat the "cheap food" breakfast. We loved having you here and hope you will return. Goose & Turrets lives in an old building - c. 1907 - and has had many incarnations: from grocery and post office to Spanish American War Veterans... More

This very quaint, historical inn provides such a wonderful retreat in a quiet rural community very close to San Francisco. The Inn Keepers, Raymond and Emily, are exceptionally interesting people who really enjoy welcoming their guests and sharing afternoon tea over conversation and discussion. I was also very impressed by the InnKeepers' concerns for food preferences and allergies. The Inn... More

We stayed at this place for one night and I think we made a terrible mistake. We called the owners and told them that we won't be able to attend the breakfast. The next morning the owner came by and yelled at us for not telling them in advance. He insulted us in every way possible. I was so sorry... More
