We had a very nice weekend stay at the Inn. Ken is a great host and owner - he is very personable, friendly, makes great breakfasts and lives on the property. Not a bad winemaker either, which he shares with cheese (not Kraft, but the local goat farm and dairy specialties!, crackers and fruit each evening). Room was clean and a very comfortable bed in the creekside room. Only minor drawback is that the breakfast table was right outside of our room, so you will hear a little of the prep sounds and wonderful food smells if you sleep until the last minute! It may be a tad overpriced for the rooms but overall no complaints.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located on the California Coast midway between Santa Cruz and San Francisco, our Country Inn offers a peaceful getaway in an old town atmosphere. The crashing waves of nearby beaches may be heard in the evening along with the croaking frogs in the marsh. Relax in front of the large stone fireplace in our century old farmhouse or sit by the side of the creek that separates the Inn from town. Decorated with period antiques, each room has a queen bed and a private bath with a claw-foot tub. Visit the shops in town offering unique gifts and places to dine. Be sure to try the artichoke garlic bread from Norm's Bakery, wood fired pizza from Pescadero Country Store, and great coffee ate Downtown Local. And be sure to enjoy dinner at Duarte's Tavern, winner of the prestigious 2003 James Beard National Culinary Award. And no visit would be complete without visiting Harley goat farm and enjoy the free cheeses available for tasting in their shop! California beaches and redwoods are a short ride away. Travel south on scenic Highway One toward Santa Cruz you will find Pigeon Point Lighthouse, elephant seals at Ano Nuevo State Beach and kite surfers and hang-gliders at Waddell Creek. Come see the magic that is Pescadero. ... more less
