We stayed in the Cottage, which is a little two story house on the back property of the main house. Has a little kitchen on the first floor and queen size bed, sitting area, balcony and bathroom on the... More

To wrap up our Highway 1 adventure from San Francisco, my fiance and I stayed at the Garden Cottage Inn on our last night of the trip. This little gem is absolute perfection, Bill and Sandra are so hospitable, sweet and non-intrusive. You really feel like you are staying in your own home but with the added benefit of the... More

Bill and Sandra offer two accommodations centered around a courtyard - a cottage and a 'honeymoon suite' which is where we stayed. Our room(s) had a four poster bed with sumptuous linens, a fireplace, a spa tub, and a private sitting area. Bill has a talent for Espalier and the gardens are incredible. Every morning, we received a full coffee... More

My husband and I live nearby in Laguna Beach, but just needed to get away from the craziness of life. We could not have picked a better place, it was like we were hundreds of miles away, not minutes from home. The accomodations were awesome and the food and hospitality was second to none.
