The Mill Rose Inn offers superior comfort and exceptional appointments in a lovely garden setting within a block of Main Street in Half Moon Bay. The chocolate chip cookies for snacking are magnificent, and the breakfasts (two mornings) were special. The owner was very firendly and informative. And his three poodles were well behaved and friendly. No question that we... More

Amazing!!!! Mill Rose B&B is an absolute oasis. From the moment we checked in until we (unfortunately) had to leave Mill Rose Inn proved to be exceptional. My boyfriend and I just wanted to explore and find a calm, quaint and unusual experience. We checked in on a Sunday afternoon, famished, and were told which authentic Mexican restaurant with the...

We made a last minute reservation at the lovely Mill Rose Inn. After walking through the beautiful English garden we were graciously welcomed by Terry who showed us to our room. The room was a bit ornate but very comfortable and included free wine and beer in the fridge and a bottle of sherry and bourbon. Terry brought up a... More

We returned to the Mill Rose Inn after 25 years to celebrate our anniversary. Had the same room and the same great service. Lots of extras and attention to detail. Loved the dessert tray in the evening. And the breakfast was terrific. Good bed. Great video selection even though we did take advantage. Very nice hot tub available for private... More

Stayed just one evening on our way further north and regret not taking more time. The inn is a great little place just a block off of the town center where you can find restaurants, shops, etc... Terry was quick to land us a dinner reservation and followed-up the next morning with a great breakfast in our room. The inn... More

I called the inn today to inquire about a four-night buy-out over the July 4 weekend. To my surprise and delight all six rooms were available. Less delightful was the person who answered the phone (who I later learned was the owner, Terry Baldwin). I'm in hospitality and deal with people in the service industry every day. While there's no... More

My husband and I needed to get away from several stressful weeks of work, and we chose to stay at the Mill Rose Inn. Although Half Moon Bay is a 45 minute ride from our house, we felt as if we had entered a world of make-believe when we arrived at the inn. Flowers, fountains and bushes decorate the building's...

It only took me ten years to get around to booking a stay at the Mill Rose Inn. I had long heard about it, but never got around to booking a stay.
