“L & E Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

To echo what many other guests have noted in celebration, it's an exquisite place in a beautiful setting, designed and run - down to the most refined and tasteful and comforting detail imaginable - simply exquisitely, as a clear and moving labour of love, by a warm and delightful and interesting couple. And then, like a garnish, there's the breakfast - in whose thoughtful, creative and sumptuous mirror all the other sensibilities are expressed again. Wonderful!

We have stayed at a number of B & Bs. The Bay Hill Mansion is bar far the best experience we have ever had. Chris and Gina were born to do this! Their conversation, friendliness and desire to accommodate are nothing short of remarkable. Their dogs Loki and Buttercup are fantastic. And believe me, you will NEVER have better breakfasts! Five-star cuisine and five-star attentiveness ensure that we will make the Bodega Bay Mansion an annual destination.

Thanks John A, for your kind comments, and for the both of you for having spent a lovely & mutually enjoyable 4 night weekend here with us and our puppies. You know we strive to provide an excellent experience for our guests and we hope to rise to the level of positivity you noted with all our guests. We want to extend a very special thank you for the fantastic and artistically pleasing black and white photos you shot of Loki and Buttercup (which now hang in the information super Hall way) You and George are now semi permanent fixtures in our home. We look forward to seeing you again.

Shelley and I really enjoyed the beautiful views and excellent hospitality at Bay Hill Mansion. Everything is clean and bright. The grounds are beautiful and the scenary is simply spectacular. Chris and Gina were the perfect hosts. We stayed in the Master Suite, and it was just a treat. From the 1000 thread count sheets on the confortable king bed to the clean bathroom and shower, this was probably the best night sleep I have had on any vacation! There was a panoramic view from the bedroom windows that blew our minds. We also took a brisk morning walk up Bayhill Road (on Gina's reccommendation) that provided a stunning view of the entire Bay and community. Well worth the 10 minutes. We throughly enjoyed our stay and well be back as soon as we can to indulge ourselves again at this little gem!

All too often life challenges you with many decisions each day, some much more hectic than others. Recently Rosemary and I took a quick vacation to CA and had to do Bodega Bay yet one more time. We've been many times before trying out other B&B's but never one like Bay Hill Mansion and never with hosts like Gina and Chris!

First, this B&B is not your every day B&B. In all honesty, it's almost a destination in and of itself. This mansion, yes mansion, is located atop a hillside providing beautiful views of the town and coastline. The recent renovation is maticulous and no detail is left unturned. We dare you to find anything that isn't cleaned and sparkling daily!

Back to the stress thing. As a constant road warrior, I've seen my share of hotels, motels and such with a clear understanding as to what real 5 star service is. Gina and Chris exemplify this in every way. If there is a detail that you might have a question on, they've already anticipated that need and either have it there or know exactly where to go. The rooms are beautifully appointed and are extremely comfortable - there goes the stress.

Seriously, this is now our all time favorite B&B and we've been to many. Way to go Gina and Chris, you really have done the Bay Hill Mansion well and your service is second to none. The breakfast was absolutely outstanding and more than we could eat (we need that recipe).

Rosemary and Al

Room Tip: Make sure to book in advance and make sure to let Gina and Chris know ahead of time any special need...

Oh my goodness white dog, Cali and brown dog, Sophie (me) have stayed in some nice places. Our parents love to take us on their adventure, but they really outdid themselves this time. We were greeted by a beautiful bowl of water labeled, "Welcome to Bay Hill Mansion.", We enjoyed the spacious room so much. The view out of our windows was incredible. Every time we went outside, we were surprised by a treat at the kitchen door. Don't get service like that at home. If we were spoiled like this, can you imagine how happy our parents are. They haven't stopped talking about it all the way home! We are already planning our next trip back, but we have to stay 2 days next time. 1 day just isn't enough. Woof!

We spent two relaxing days in Bodega Bay. The breakfasts were wonderful and the innkeepers did an excellent job of adding vegan choices to the meal. The rooms were very comfortable and they had tried to think of everything. They had just started the inn but clearly were very well prepared. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.

The Bay Hill Mansion is a relaxing bed and breakfast experience just north of Bodega Bay off Highway 1. It is conveniently located, a stone's throw from a variety of excellent restaurants and scenic beaches. From the rooms on the upper floor you can see the ocean over the trees and its distant roar is ever present. It is quiet and peaceful on the grounds, which include a large garden and deck where you can relax and read as the day passes you by. The beds are incredibly comfortable - we slept through the night and woke refreshed every morning. Chris and Gina, the hosts, make your stay a very personal experience, and their high standards and meticulous attention to detail leave you wanting to add an extra day at the end. The breakfasts are marvelous, each a singular culinary statement. The afternoon sun warms the great room while you relax with a book on any of the wonderfully comfortable sofas and chairs. We will be back!

Thank you for the kind review and wonderful description of your stay and the property and the breakfasts. Your 4 day stay (&review) captured very well the essence of the relaxing environment we hoped to establish for guests and friends. We're happy that you made the choice to come visit us and stay during your celebratory time and look forward to seeing you again in the future. Bodega Bay is simply put, a great place to get away from "it all" and we're happy you could come join us. Thanks again.
