Fensalden Inn is a magical and welcoming bed and breakfast. Chris treated us like family and we felt quite at home. They were available to our needs, but not intrusive. Our room was lovely. We chose the Headlands on the ground floor. It had a private sitting porch, with views of the property and Pacific Ocean. Bedding I could sink into after a long day of touring. The heater was warm and efficient when we used it in the mornings. The bathroom felt homey too. Nice that each room has a private bath. Priceless. The view was breathtaking and the grounds tranquil. The game and puzzle room had lots to choose from and took advantage of the ocean view. Afternoon socializing with other guests and the hosts was complimented with wine and appetizers. Hummingbird visits abound! Breakfast was served at our convienience. My favorites included the salsa egg souffle and fresh berries with rich, vanilla ice cream. Yes! Ice cream for breakfast. It was decadent and delightful!! We stayed for four nights and I was homesick when it was time to leave. Fensalden was the most amazing part of our vacation. I would go back in a heartbeat, and plan to as soon as we can fit it in! (visited March 2011)
