Most bed and breakfasts are older lodging, sometimes Victorian, but this was built as a B&B, albeit in the 1980s. The rooms are large and light (many skylights in the entire inn) with functioning comfortable bathroom, a fireplace, baseboard heating, and a comfortable bed (perhaps Tempurpedic).
We had two windows which looked out on pasture land with many varieties of birds (they have feeding stations in the back), the low coast hills, and the scent of the sea when open. There were robes for using the hot tub. We did not use it because the overhead lights were not functioning and another couple said it was difficult to lift the cover, especially in the dark.
The main room is heated by a wood stove, there is ample supply of reading material, and in the past, many choices of music (we did not try this ourselves). Tea and coffee are always available. One sits in comfortable chairs with good lighting or a sofa. The parking is convenient.
It is a short walk down the hill to Olema with its choice of restaurants and it is a short drive to Pt. Reyes National Seashore.
The breakfast was average for B&Bs—orange juice, small bowl of diced fruit, a quiche, and coffee or tea which you bring over with you. The innkeeper is genial and full of information about the region. All in all, a delightful visit that we will make again in the future.
