The first thing I noticed upon entering our room (ocean side) was the strong smell of a wood burning fireplace. Neither of us minded this but after a couple of days it became strong and caused a slight irritation to my throat. Although I must admit, we thoroughly enjoyed the real log fireplace on the chilly nights. Having the window seat was great as we liked watching the people on the beach area below us. We were comfortable on the feathered bed the first night but after the second night both our backs started to ache as we're used to a firmer bed. I guess it's all subjective. A continental breakfast was served on time to our room each morning which was nice. The bathroom was great with lots of room and good water pressure. If I could offer just one suggestion to the owners, it would be to add some sort of lighting inside the closet area as that's where we put our suitcase and it was hard to see inside. We enjoyed our visit and this is a pretty facility but not the nicest of B&B's we have stayed in. Our favorite is the Seven Gables Inn in Pacific Grove. However, Seven Gables does not have fireplaces or televisions which was a big plus to us.
