A must.. When I researched our stay I narrowed it down to three B&Bs Having always been mainstream hotel travelers, we hoped to make the right choice. And boy did we. Thanks in part to Trip Advisor, we concluded that The Penrose would be our choice..
From the moment you arrive the Penrose does not disappoint. The views are spectacular and they seem to have perfected every detail. When we checked in we were greeted by Francine who gave us a walk thru and set us up in our beautiful room (the Mariposa) The Inn is immaculate and everything well thought from ice buckets and corkscrews to a fully stocked frig featuring water, gatorade & soda not to mention the baked treats left each night. Morning breakfasts were deliciously prepared and plentiful.. We especially liked the morning's first courses; strawberry, banana, pineapple smoothie served in a martini class and the braised pinapples with brown sugar & cheese. The entrees that followed were perfect. No need to worry about where to go or what to do as the Penrose family has binders of local restaurants as well as maps and information on things to do and places to see. Allow yourselves a little time for checkout as there is a little ritual which takes about 20 minutes and is a perfect ending to a great stay. As for local recommendations:
We had two amazing dinners the first at Cuccina Rustica a dimly lit beautifully romantic place which is a 5 minute drive, the other and probably our favorite (we had seafood) at Shugrues which did not disappoint from the first cocktail to dessert. We sat on the outside deck at 645p and watched the sunset while we had a terrific dinner. Shugrues entree prices include 3 salad choices or soup and a side and was well worth the price.
