There’s so much that has already been said about this lovely B & B which encourages a warm and friendly social atmosphere, I don’t need to repeat. Be assured if that’s not your cup of tea, you can relax and chill by yourself as you see fit and enjoy staying here. Whilst the inn is lovely the hosts Liz and Kate are true gems. They seem to attract a bunch of lovely guests too, many of which are repeat visitors If the location suits you ‘just do it’. Thanks ladies.

We rarely stay in a B&B more than once because we love trying new places BUT...... We enjoyed our first stay last year so much we knew we wanted to return. Last time we stayed in the Nantucket Room and it was amazing. This time we splurged and stayed in the Chatham Suite and it was over the top spectacular. 600 sq ft of sheer bliss. After a long day of hiking we enjoyed the extra spacious dual head shower. This suite offers two balconies and we spent a great deal of time on them taking in the lovely views of both the ocean and lagoon. A highlight for us was watching the breathtaking sunset in the evening and the glorious sunrise in the morning from our king sized bed. Pampered doesn't begin to describe it. Liz would have our coffee ready at 6am and I must say it is the BEST coffee ever! Carol can tell you the story surrounding it. I had to buy a buy a couple of bags that's how good it is. There's a very comfortable day bed which we lounged on while reading and enjoying the view and sounds of the numerous birds. Be prepared to be stuffed at the end of your meal. The food is so good you won't be able to stop eating. And oh my goodness, the berry crisp is the best you'll ever taste. From the moment you walk in the door to the time you sadly have to check out you will be treated like you are their most favorite guests EVER!!!!

Kate Stanton Inn is my favorite place to stay in Encinitas, CA. The house is beautiful, the rooms are super clean, beds are heavenly comfortable, breakfast is first class and Liz and Carol are the best. They make you feel at home. The views are stunning and the patio is lovely. This Inn has become my home when I am visiting. Such a great place!

We took a quick trip down the coast to see the SD Botanic Gardens seasonal light display and stayed with Liz and Carol at their very comfortable home. Tucked away in a residential neighborhood near Hwy 5 and the old coast highway this family home turned into a B&B is an oasis in any storm. Lovely hosts, tasty breakfasts, and our immaculate room (Chatham Suite) made for a peaceful and delightful stay.

Staying at the Kate Stanton Inn is like visiting with your favorite cousin or aunt who lives in Southern California. The Inn is located in a quite residential area not far from the Pacific Ocean. It is a two-minute drive or an 'exercise walk' to a public beach. The Inn is convenient to both the interstate and the main drag through Leucadia and Encinitas. Its location is the best of travel convenience and warm accommodations. What makes the Kate Stanton Inn someplace special is the welcome you receive from Liz and Carol. From the moment you enter you realize they not only love opening their home to their guests, but they want you to feel as if you are extended family. You are welcomed with a bottle of water or a glass of wine -- and by Kai, the family dog. For breakfast you sit at their dining room table, which is open to the kitchen so you can watch either Liz or Carol prepare your breakfast. On our first morning we were treated to Carol's specialty: ham and cheese crepes. On subsequent mornings we were served Liz's scrambled eggs or bagels and lox. All of this was accompanied by yogurt, granola, fresh fruit, coffee, bread and pastry, more than enough for a filling breakfast. Whatever they prepare they make sure it is something you like and can eat. Before you head out for the day, ask for recommedations. They will help you navigate the local shops and restaurants, provide 'what to see' suggestions, and give you hints as to where best to watch the sunset. And if you want to head to the ocean you can use their beach chairs. What truly revealed Liz's and Carol's genuine hospitality was their concern for us when they realized we were heading north to the Santa Barbara area when we checked out. They knew that the Wolsey fire could impact our travel plans, so they monitored the fires, road closures, and traffic patterns while we spent our days exploring San Diego. They encouraged us to check with our next innkeeper for air quality and access. Up to the minute we left they were on the computer checking our route. As we walked out the door, they asked us to text our arrival so they knew we had arrived safely. We have traveled to many different cities and countries and we have stayed at many inns and B&B's both in the US and in Europe. While many were delightful or beautiful or convenient and worth a return visit, this is one of only two locations where we really connected with the innkeepers to the point that we wanted to sit and talk instead of running out to see the sights.
