Originally we had planned a fall weekend to the Great Lakes region and a night in a historic lighthouse this was a last minute call and we were lucky to get a room !! We are from the Los Angeles area and have never ventured this far up the coast. What a GEM! Our room had a window with a view out to the ocean and the harbor, a sunken japanese tub and a fireplace!!
We were lucky to enjoy a glass of wine with the owner and another couple in front of the fireplace. It turned out to be a quiet evening. The room was comfortable, not luxurious but bear in mind this is a historic property and we were pleased that the owners have taken great pride in keeping it in that era. Also linens and wall decor were kept to a bare minimum which again was appreciated. My husband and I get tired of bed and breakfasts that are smothered in victorian wall papers and pink lacy things. The bed was a tad on the soft side but the peace and quiet of the place put me to sleep quickly. We both felt warm and secure!
Breakfast is served about 9:30 am which allows sleeping in or a walk. Mia served fresh fruit, fresh blueberry muffins and a potato like casserole. All was very nicely presented and really good but my husband and I must have worked up an appetite because we ate it all and still wanted a little more.
No TV'S or in room phones, a wonderful treasure on a quiet part of the California coast. The owners, Kevin and Mia were very helpful in suggesting routes in and around the area. They also steered us to a wonderful restaurant down the coast a bit that was well worth the stop. We very much enjoyed our conversations and in fact I felt bad for leaving and not staying another night.
My husband and I are already talking about when we will go back to the Coast Guard Historic House Inn. Thank you Kevin and Mia for a wonderful stay at your special Inn. !!
