If you enjoy traditional B&Bs, you may really enjoy it here. It is clear that Raymond and Emily take great pride in their home. There are many lovely antiques. Every surface and inch of wall space is covered with nick knacks and/or memorabilia of their travels. They are kind people. That said... This just wasn't the place for us. I felt like I was staying at my great aunt's house who I didn't know well. And that my mom had called ahead for her to keep an eye on me. The "afternoon tea" felt like an event for the entertainment of the proprietors, not the guests. We felt as if we had no privacy. My husband and I caught ourselves whispering constantly. The breakfast was lovely. This place is not my cup of tea, so to speak.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Goose & Turrets is an old-fashioned B&B where you are pampered with comfortable beds and generous four-course breakfasts. There is also an afternoon tea of freshly brewed teas from around the world accompanied by savouries and sweets - in a setting of lively conversation. The house was built in 1907 as a grocery, post office, and town hall. After its long and checkered history, the Hoche-Mongs converted it into a bed and breakfast in 1983 and have been welcoming happy guests ever since. It sits in an acre of gardens which contains an Appalachian courting swing, two hammocks, and a bocce ball pitch. Montara Beach is a half-mile walk away as is a terrific Peruvian restaurant with a huge view. Nearby one may fish, kayak, go whale watching, aero-sightseeing, beach combing, hiking, biking, antiquing, shopping in quaint stores at Princeton Harbor and in Half Moon Bay, explore Montara Mountain or go down the coast to Pescadero's famous restaurant and market or continue to Año Nuevo to encounter mammoth elephant seals. On a foggy day, you may choose to just sit by the fire and read and listen to classical music. It's a good place for adventure and for complete lethargy. ... more less
