“Black Orchid is the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

The breakfast is one of the best we have ever had at a B&B and the hosts, Linda & Earl, are so friendly and helpful. We were visiting from Connecticut but felt like we were staying in a home away from home. Don't miss out on this memorable experience.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent.

I spent hours trying to decide on the best place to stay on our recent trip to the San Diego area. We were celebrating our 30th anniversary. I knew I wanted someplace romantic, clean, close to beaches, and good food. I found all of this and so much more, staying at Earl and Linda's wonderful B&B. Linda's breakfasts are elegant, new table settings each morning, fresh fruit, french toast, bacon, sausage, juices, oatmeal, yogurt, etc. The Garden room was wonderful! I've never seen such a clean room. The shower & jacuzzi tub for 2 are very relaxing. The bed & pillows felt just like home. The interior decorating is charming, no expense was spared. You have 2 porches & we slept with doors open, as the weather was perfect. Awoke to chirping birds and the peaceful sounds of water falling. The grounds are lush with flowers and trees. The room is extra private & quiet. Linda and Earl are the nicest people. The price is certainly reasonable for all you get. This is not the closest place to beaches, but not far at all, and I promise that if you are looking for a great place for a romantic getaway, you will be 100% happy at Black Orchid, so look no further. Thanks Earl & Linda - we'll be back!

Room Tip: All 3 rooms are lovely, but Garden room is the most private and it has 2 porches that overlook the g...
