We stayed here this past March, 2022. I don’t normally write reviews. But three months later I’m still thinking about our time there. It was WONDERFUL! We flew out from North Carolina into San Francisco. The drive up the Pacific Coast Highway is beautiful but not easy and quite long. We stayed in the Seascape room in the main mansion. Every detail, from the delicious breakfast brought to your room each morning, the in-room coffee, wine and port service to the charming decor was special. The whole atmosphere was casual and elegant all at the same time. Especially notable was the staff. They were attentive, cheerful and happy. They love what they do and love where they are. Getting to the Inn is not easy and the Inn is pricey. But staying there is worth EVERY mile and EVERY dollar. We can’t wait to go back! Thank you Melissa, Victor and all the staff!!” – Darlene, TripAdvisor
