The Inn at Occidental, run by innkeepers Tina and Jerry Wolsborn, is one of the best B & B's I've ever stayed in. The Inn itself is beautiful and beautifully decorated, in a beautiful setting surrounded by redwoods. All the rooms are private, and each has its own designer theme. The rooms are spacious and well-equipped; the beds are comfortable; and the inn is very quiet. And yet the entire town of Occidental is in walking distance, and that includes several excellent restaurants, various shops and at least two grocers.
The "breakfast" part of the B & B at the Inn at Occidentalis really wonderful, with a different gourmet breakfast every day. Cookies and coffee are available throughout the day, and there is a wine and cheese happy hour every afternoon.
Jerry and Tina are experienced and thoughtful innkeepers. You will feel welcome, at home and coddled throughout your stay. If you have any special requirements, they will make every effort to accommodate them. When I first stayed with them two years ago, there was a brief power outage. Even though the rooms are equipped with plenty of lanterns for emergencies, Jerry and Tina were out distributing extra lanterns all around the outside of the inn when I arrived home that evening, making sure that all the walkways and stairways were well lit for late returning guests.
When I stayed with Jerry and Tina this last summer, I found they had installed TVs in every room. For those who can't bear to be separated from their favorite shows, this will be a plus. But I attend a nearby music workshop every summer, and I personally look forward to the wonderful peace and quiet the Inn provides after a long day of making wonderful music in the redwoods.
I can't recommend the Inn at Occidental, and innkeepers Tina and Jerry, highly enough. My stays have been worth every penny. I will be returning in the summer of 2014. I can't imagine staying anywhere else.
