This is not just a bed and breakfast but an experience that we will relive forever. You walk right through a gate on the property onto an amazing trail along the coast that is breathtaking! This is a property that is located in an area that I believe is historical toward the development of Moss Beach. We very treated like royalty and enjoyed the wonderful chocolate chip cookies. The no children policy helps to make this a relaxing retreat. I could see coming here alone for some rest and relaxation with a good book.

Room tip: We stayed in a garden room and loved having a patio

We're looking forward to welcoming you again; more relaxation and chocolate chip cookies will be waiting for you.

Great place to stay for couples. Quiet, peaceful and relaxing. Simple breakfast adequate but other options available near by. Coast line and beach area a short walk but worth the effort. The staff made sure we had everything we needed daily and the location was perfect. Beds were comfortable and rooms well equipped. The fireplace was a plus on the chilly mornings. We look forward to returning in the future.

Room tip: Get one with a fireplace and on the bottom floor.

A wonderful 10 room inn with a fantastic living room/family area. So cozy to sit by the fireplace in the living room and read. Just a short walk to the beach and many other trails are near the inn. Very attentive staff!

Room tip: Select a room with an updated bath

What a find! This place is upmarket, beautiful, splendidly-located and a real gem. It's quiet with wonderful forest walks and access to a beautiful marine preserve beach. We stayed for three nights on our honeymoon in one of the best rooms and I could have stayed a week. It's quite a little drive from Half Moon Bay (15 minutes or so) but there are plenty of closer restaurants for dining and if you simply like exploring natural wonders, it's great. The gardens weren't at their best due to the season but I can imagine they are a real joy in spring and summer. A few small constructive criticisms: When staying three nights, it would be nice to have a larger selection for breakfast. It's a beautifully-presented continental offering but exactly the same every day. Also, when you're paying these prices, you don't expect to be limited to one small glass of wine at the social hour. All the other places we stayed at in Northern California were WAY more generous with their snacks and wine in the evenings and this was our most expensive hotel by quite a bit, so it came across as very stingy.

Hello Kerry J,
It was our pleasure to welcome you to our slice of California paradise. We’d like to again congratulate you on your wedding; we feel honored to have been a part of your honeymoon. You’re absolutely right; the beauty surrounding us is magnificent. The Fitzgerald Marine Reserve, area trails and cypress groves all hold their own unique wonders. As you mentioned, we are closely located to several dining options that serve everything from gourmet cuisine to casual favorites. You’ll be happy to hear that our guests are more than welcome to change their breakfast choices from our provided menu each day, and we apologize if that was not made more clear. Thank you for your suggestions and valuable feedback. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you again for another serene getaway on the stunning California coast.

I came here 20 years ago with my mom and had such nice memories of this inn. It is still lovely. The short walk to the Pacific is breathtaking as the cypress trees are phenomenal. We didn't stay for breakfast as we were too busy but they did pack it up for us. Coffee and tea readily available and soft drinks and water. Would be nice if they got a chef to serve dinner a few nights for guests or even locals -suggestion but know that's tough. Truly did enjoy it....beds were so comfy!!

Welcome back Phylis. We’re honored to be a part of your cherished memories from 20 years ago and to now be a part of new ones. We’re delighted that your visit not only lived up to your expectations, but also impressed. We couldn’t agree with you more; the coastal bluffs along Half Moon Bay and the cypress grove just outside our door is spectacular. It was our pleasure to share them with you. Thank you for your dining suggestion. Also, thank you for appreciating our luxury beds and bedding, coffee and tea amenities and our delicious breakfast. We’re already looking forward to your next visit; we hope it will be soon.
