My husband and I were looking for an oceanfront b&b outside of San Francisco, I found this place online and couldn't wait to visit. The drive up was spectacular, although a little scary, lots of deer and even a cow on the road. Arrived to check in just in time before Alexander's closed. We both loved the food, every single thing we tasted had tremendous flavor even down to the herb dip for the bread, the scallops were perfectly cooked and the prawns were excellent. Now for the desert...we got this to go and sat on our patio listening to the waves, I had the Croissant bread pudding and it may be the best desert I have ever had, incredible. My husband had the freshly baked molten lava cake and it was excellent. After our food coma we had to try the hot tub, which is in the room. We actually fell asleep it was so relaxing.
The room is very rustic which we found charming, being from NC our two favorite places are the mountains and the beach, both of which we have, but in this place it's having them at the same time, like a ski lodge on the ocean. I realize they are renovating but the charm of this was just different enough that we loved it.
The next morning we walked out our patio to the paths along the cliffs, again a little scary if you don't like heights but is so worth it, the views are unlike anything you see on the east coast.
We had breakfast there again and was able to see more of the grounds and again a lodge like but very zen decor. The orange juice smelled like the best orange you could imagine, and taste just as good. To sit at breakfast and see the views of the ocean is the perfect unwind vacation. We only stayed the one night but are already planning our return.
If you're looking for a perfect unwind and un stress getaway Where a cell phone ringing isn't an option, then this is perfection!
