Rainbow Inn Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #4 of 6 Temecula B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 November 2011

This is more than your typical bed and breakfast. You are the innkeepers' only guests and you actually have your own guest cottage with sitting room/library, bedroom and bath/kitchen. But even more than that, you have the exclusive use of the deck and pool as well and your own entrance from the parking area to come and go as you please. Upon arrival, you are greeted not only by a personalized welcome sign, but also both of your gracious hosts, the innkeepers, Scott and Dona Adams. Once you check in, you don't see the Innkeepers until you turn in the key, even though they live in the house adjacent to the guest house. There are no neighbors, at least none that I could see or hear. The area is very quiet and peaceful, the beautiful scenery and wildlife is enough to relax even the most stressed out guests.

The house is secluded on a hillside, with spectacular views of the surrounding valley and its avocado and citrus groves, as well as being able to see the ocean on a clear day. The deck constitutes the entire roof of the guest house, and so both are around 800 square feet. The decor is country; homey and cozy, but not overdone or fussy. The house and surrounding grounds are kept immaculate. My favorite part about this property were the little hand-painted signs scattered throughout the gardens, grounds and inside the cottage, with clever sayings and quotes. It is very apparent that a lot of love and care went into preparing this place for their guests.

The bedroom is long and narrow. One end contains a queen-sized bed (very comfy). This end of the room is a little tight, with only 1-2 feet on either side, but adequate. The other end of the room contains a twin bed, wing-backed chair and small closet, complete with sweatshirts and robes for guests as well as extra pillows.

The bathroom has cabinets full of extra toilettries, should you forget something. The only thing they didn't have was an extra toothbrush, which is something I forgot (a quick trip to Wal-Mart solved that one). You are also expected to provide your own shampoo & conditioner, which was not unexpected. Soap and a blow-dryer are provided for you. At one end of the bathroom, is a makeshift kitchenette, complete with mini-fridge, coffee maker (w/coffee, creamer, sugar & sugar substitute), microwave (and popcorn!), and toaster, as well as cooking utensils, flatware, cups and spices. They also provide a corkscrew and wine glasses, should you decide to bring something bubbly back from one of the nearby wineries.

Three walls of the living room contain an ample library, full of classics and best-sellers, as well as non-fiction and videos; CDs and DVDs are available upon request, free of charge. There is a BBQ and easy hiking on the property. They do not have WiFi, but they have DirecTV and good cell coverage, so if you have a capable smart phone, you can create a hotspot if you really need to stay connected (though it's almost nicer not to). There are plenty of comfy places to sit and read, watch TV, play games, or just relax, both inside the cottage and out, as well as on the deck. There are several extra blankets and throws and a cast-iron "fireplace" (electric heater with pseudo fire) in the living room to help warm those chilly nights and mornings. They have also recently installed a heater/air conditioner which works very well and is relatively quiet.

Breakfast is left on a table just outside the door (on a covered porch), at whatever time you indicate on a little chalkboard that Dona can see from her window. Dona provides plenty of delicious food that varies day by day. One day we found fresh strawberries, bagels with butter, cream cheese and jam, juice, boiled eggs and mini muffins. Another day we were served english muffins with butter and jam, sweet bread, mixed nuts, juice, grapes and peeled clementines. It was plenty of food and we enjoyed at least one breakfast up on the deck.

The surrounding area has several points of interest and activities. Within minutes, you will find several award-winning wineries that offer tasting and tours, as well as Indian Casinos. Nearby Old Town Temecula is like going to an old west town and has good shopping and easy parking. There are also jeep tours and hot air balloon trips offered in the area.

All in all, it seemed that Scott and Dona have thought to provide everything their guests need, and then some. It was a perfect get-away and we felt relaxed and rejuvenated after our long weekend. Scott and Dona are warm, hospitable hosts and make you feel like family. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and family and we will make a point to stay there again.

The innkeepers Scott and Dona were very pleasant and full of information. They invited us into their home as if we were family. This bed & breakfast only has one room which is the guesthouse. There is a separate entrance from the side which goes past the pool. It is on a hillside completely seperate from the main house so there is lots of privacy. The deck is on top of the room and is private as well. The living area is a really good size. There are a ton of books if you want to read them, but just make sure you put them back where you got them. There is a flat screen tv with directv and they get all the channels which is nice. There is a small fridge as well as the microwave. The bedding is super cozy, although the bedroom space is kinda small. When you actually drive to the inn you have to be very careful becuase as you go up the hill and turn its a super sharp turn into the driveway. The biggest downfall for this place I felt was that they didn't take credit cards. When I sent in the request to make a reservation it said that they would need a check or money order for half to hold the reservation. I made the reservation so late that they said that I could just pay when I got there but in cash. I think they should really offer a credit card option.
