Inn at the Pinnacles Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 1 Soledad B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 October 2013

We found this by accident on the web. That was our lucky day! The Inn is on a bumpy road on the way to the National Park, in the middle of vineyards. The rooms are so nice, you have your own balcony with a grill so that you can make your own food at night. The view and the sunsets are perfect. We even had terrific weather and enjoyed the pool. But best of all are the hosts, Jan and Jon that makes everybody feel at home. There is vinetasting every afternoon, in their private living room or outside under a huge three. They are so good with people! We got to know a lot of different and interesting people from a retired police officer to a investor. Their wine is very good too. And Jans breakfasts are to die for. I strongly recommend this place.

We were here in the winter and were the only couple. The owners were very gracious and took wonderful care of us. It's close to the Pinnacles. Otherwise you have to stay in Soledad. And the road to the Pinnacles sucks. They have their own winery and the breakfast was fine. The room was nicely furnished. I broke my leg (but thought it was a sprain) and they were very attentive. Very nice grounds and views. It would be great if the Pinnacles National Park had a lodge half as nice as there is none.

Room Tip: All nice rooms as we checked them.

This is a real gem of a place that the owners have turned into something special. We felt like we were in a villa in Provence the entire four days we spent there. The inn is situated on 140 acres, 40 of which are vineyards on rolling hills, all part of the Brosseau vineyards, owned by Jon and Jan Brosseau. The place is secluded and surrounded by fields of lavender. The air is so clean and fresh with no pollution. At night, we star-gazed in the clear sky and were able to see the Milky Way, planets and other constellations-truly an amazing experience.

This is a 6 room B & B, and we travelled with a few families so we had the whole place to ourselves. We, unfortunately, had some unforeseen circumstances arise a couple weeks before our arrival, necessitating many changes in our reservation. At no time did Jan make us feel we were inconveniencing her, even though we probably were. She was very flexible and understanding about the unfortunateness of our situation and remained ever the gracious host. When we finally arrived, we completely felt at home the entire week.

Everything about our stay was perfect. The rooms were impeccable and spacious and had all the amenities we could possibly need. The gourmet breakfasts (vegetable quiche, egg casserole, croissant french toast, fresh fruit, cereals, breads, muffins, etc.) were so delicious and filling; we also appreciated being handed a cup of coffee by Jon first thing when we walked into the kitchen in the morning. The kids in our group were similarly welcomed and given first class treatment as well; they were delighted to have a cup of hot cocoa with whip cream each morning - that was a very thoughtful touch. They also enjoyed having access to microwave popcorn and other packaged snacks.

The proximity to Pinnacles National Park could not be better. It was about a 5-10 minute drive to the park entrance. We hiked during the day and then returned to the inn in the late afternoon to relax. The pool and surrounding area was fantastic and provided stunning views of the surrounding vineyards and valley. The kids were also pleasantly surprised to be able to try out the archery set. There is a ping pong table and bocci ball court as well. This place was enjoyed by all the adults AND kids (ages 8-15), which is saying a lot. We particularly enjoyed the wine (tasting the yummy wines of the Brosseau vineyards), cheese and appetizers in the evening, sitting under the shade tree, listening to Jon's stories of their family and the history of how he built the vineyard and inn.

There is so much attention to detail at this place in the amenities and the personal touches from Jon and Jan. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we are already thinking of returning. While the individual rooms offer privacy and dedicated balconies that would make this an ideal spot for couples, I also highly recommend coming in a group and booking all the rooms as we did. You will really feel like you are in a French villa in Provence - "without the 10-hour flight," as Jon would say!

We had an excellent visit to the Inn at the Pinnacles B&B in June 2013. We stayed for a long weekend, spending our days hiking around the National Park. The B&B is situated in the middle of rolling hills of vineyards, a modest drive from the park and from Soledad. The rooms were very well appointed, and the breakfast was excellent. The Inn's hosts were very accommodating and gracious. We took advantage of the outdoor gas BBQ to make our dinners (dirty dishes are taken care of by the staff!). We can highly recommend this Inn as your base for exploring the park.

Wonderful stay, hosts, and amenities - dip in the pool after hot day hiking and gas grill on our deck for a sunset BBQ. Looking forward to a return visit for wild flowers next Spring. The ideal setting to disconnect, relax and enjoy others looking for same. Expect a quiet eve, stunning star gazing and comfortable casual socializing at wine time and breakfast.

We only stayed one night at this B&B but that's all it took to realize how very nice it is. The rooms are all very similar. We stayed in one of the lower priced rooms and it had everything that we needed and many things that we didn't (BBQ, microwave, heater, and more).

The Inn is about 10 minutes to the visitor center and a couple minutes after that you can be hitting the trails.

Our trip was a bit of a bust due to really high winds that kept us off the trails and kept us from seeing much wildlife. But, we will be back especially after learning from the owners that they have a Margarita machine that they break out when it warms up!
