I stayed here in September 2012 and the owner Phil was one of the most friendly and gracious bed and breakfast hosts I've ever met. Let me first explain the title of my review because staying at this BnB reminded me of being transported back in time to a really nice place in the 90s decor wise. It made me nostalgic and I actually enjoyed that aspect because everything worked and was clean. It's not like there was old dirty stuff or anything. Anyways, this BnB is so relaxing. We had originally booked the Aquitaine room that has a mini kitchen in it, but Phil offered us a complimentary upgrade to the Southwind room if we didn't mind not having a kitchen. The perks of the Southwind room are that you have a KING sized bed and a big window with a view of the ocean peaking through the trees. The Southwind also has a huge jacuzzi bath which I didn't use, but my fiance enjoyed relaxing in it after a long drive up the pacific coast highway. You can walk across the street to the Whale Watch Inn and take the "guests only" stairs to the beach. We enjoyed our night sipping wine, listening to music, sitting by the fireplace, and playing board games! What a relaxing night. Breakfast was a ginormous spread of food the next day. Phil gave us great recommendations for our drive back to San Francisco. We stopped by Korbel Winery and then took a walk through Anderson Woods. Our original goal was to go to Muir Woods, but Anderson Woods fit better into our driving route and schedule. My only complaint is I wish we stayed two nights instead of one. ;) Thanks Phil for an awesome stay!
