Recent guest reviews

This hotel is not on the beach but is really nice and within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants on State Street, the main drag. It's a quick drive over to the beach. It's quiet, the breakfast is wonderful a.nd the staff attentive. It is worth the money.

I loved it as soon as I got there. Very welcoming. Total relaxation.

We had an enjoyable two days. Our two disappointments were extremely small shower room/toilet combined and lack of air conditioning. Very much enjoyed breakfast and afternoon hors douvres in the garden and surrounding peaceful garden environment

This is a great way to stay it felt like a home. This cottage was great. Our own private deck and hot tub. Our breakfast was included and they were prompt when asked what time we would like it delivered. Then they came back and picked it up and cleaned up. The size of the place really surprised us. A living room with fireplace, a kitchen with full size refrigerator and stove and oven, a breakfast nook, nice size bedroom with walk in closet. It is very well centralized. We will definitely come back here.

We love staying in small inns, and the "Cat" did not disappoint. We were in town for our son's wedding. It was so nice to be able to come back to a quiet setting. We had a spectacular breakfast each day and even received the recipe one morning--it was so good. The owner and her staff were very friendly , helpful and interested in wedding. Thank you for making this special weekend for us even more enjoyable. Sincerely, the Detmers --Oakhurst, CA

For my first bed & breakfast I thought it was very good. I did not stay on campus much but what I saw I liked.
