While you might not be staying in the actual historic house, we were lucky enough to get one of the rooms for our group upgraded to a room with a separate parlor in addition to the bedroom, in the addition to the historic house, at the rear. Nicely furnished in an Early California mode, with a lot of great atmosphere. I felt like I was staying in the 1830s as done 1920's style. Very comfortable, and very comfortable bed as well, with LOTS of kushy pillows. Great parlor for socializing, and a terrace between our rooms where we could wander back and forth. This upgrade was wonderful and thoughtful! The site is in the heart of the historic district, which makes it very handy to the adobes, custom house, the wharf. Wonderfully plantings in the gardens around the buildings that give an almost tropical feel.
Breakfast is not very inspiring, just muffins, cold cereal, etc. But that's fine if you just want a continental breakfast. However, get there early, as the seating is not enough for the number of guests. Coffee pot in the room, to get you through before heading off to the breakfast room, with locally-roasted coffee supplied.
