We loved our visit to Goose and Turrets! We stayed in the Goose room, cozy and comfortable with a king sized bed, a gas fireplace, and a view of the back garden. We are repeat customers, and have always had wonderful service and a warm welcome. Emily and Raymond are charming, bookish and great travelers themselves, and full of interesting tales. We always try to arrive in time for afternoon tea and conversation, as we enjoy visiting with the hosts and other guests then and at breakfast. Great breakfasts! The building is old and eccentric, with a community history, and the garden is lovely, with quiet nooks for relaxing or even napping in a hammock. I look forward to another stay this summer.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Goose & Turrets is an old-fashioned B&B where you are pampered with comfortable beds and generous four-course breakfasts. There is also an afternoon tea of freshly brewed teas from around the world accompanied by savouries and sweets - in a setting of lively conversation. The house was built in 1907 as a grocery, post office, and town hall. After its long and checkered history, the Hoche-Mongs converted it into a bed and breakfast in 1983 and have been welcoming happy guests ever since. It sits in an acre of gardens which contains an Appalachian courting swing, two hammocks, and a bocce ball pitch. Montara Beach is a half-mile walk away as is a terrific Peruvian restaurant with a huge view. Nearby one may fish, kayak, go whale watching, aero-sightseeing, beach combing, hiking, biking, antiquing, shopping in quaint stores at Princeton Harbor and in Half Moon Bay, explore Montara Mountain or go down the coast to Pescadero's famous restaurant and market or continue to Año Nuevo to encounter mammoth elephant seals. On a foggy day, you may choose to just sit by the fire and read and listen to classical music. It's a good place for adventure and for complete lethargy. ... more less
