My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Brown Shingle B&B. The view is truly spectacular. We loved watching the city lights as we fell asleep, and waking up to see the sunlight on the Golden Gate Bridge. There is a homey atmosphere and we felt welcomed by our host, Helen (who also kindly sent us our phone and computer chargers, which we forgot in the room). The breakfasts are simple, and we usually ate in our room. Overall, our visit felt like a stay in an old house in the Berkeley Hills with a distant relative that I always wish I had.
