Very comfortable, the only complaint is that I was on business and only stayed one night. I would've liked staying longer to enjoy the surrounding shops. I was able to enjoy the complimentary breakfast at a nearby shop. Very good food, staff and coffee. Highly recommend.

Property's Favorite Review
My husband and I recently stayed here in the Foggy Mountain cottage. Our primary purpose of the trip was to hike Guadalupe Peak, and after lots of research, we found that this was by FAR the nicest place to stay within a 100 mile radius of the trailhead if you don't feel like camping outside in the summer heat. We loved the Foggy Mountain cottage! It was really like having a little piece of home, especially comfortable after a long day of hiking. The breakfast at Blue House was delicious each day, and we really liked that it was just a few steps away from the property where we could still enjoy our breakfast privately without a mandated social interaction if we didn't feel like it, as is the case with other B&Bs. We spent a lot of time resting, relaxing, and reading books in the courtyard. It was incredibly peaceful. The hot tub was nice too! But the nicest part about all of it was the people. Cleaning staff was extremely friendly, and Julie, the owner, was so accommodating as well. I had lost my voice while getting over a cold, and she offered to bring tea to our room. As the website states, this is a family run business. You are truly dealing with the owners themselves when you stay here, and they take your satisfaction personally. If you are hesitating to book, just do it! You won't regret it! Thank you, Julie, for everything!

I am always nervous about booking hotel accommodations as we don't travel often and I want everything to be enjoyable. We were not disappointed. We stayed in the Sailor's Hornpipe room and it was lovely. The room was clean, cozy & comfortable. The extra touches (tasty cookies) were appreciated.

This was a great location to stay in Carlsbad. The room was great. The check in process was effortless. The location was very conveniently located downtown. For people looking for a more unique bed and breakfast type experience, this place is perfect. Would definitely stay here again next time I am in Carlsbad.

Very nice B&B. I liked the communication by text with how to access room. Lots of nice details in room. Having a breakfast coupon for a restaurant was a little odd to me until I ate at the restaurant which was very good with very friendly staff.
