Stayed at NWI for a "reunion". Very friendly and comfortable. Comfortable bed and quiet location. Our host David was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Very good restaurant recommendations. Would stay there again.

This B&B is spectacular. David, our host, was very attentive. The home is full of art and the latest amenities. We occupied all 7 bedrooms and all of our guests raved about the service, the fountain, and ensuite bathrooms. Located in town whereby you can walk to restaurants, shops and the beach. Beautiful setting and so comfortable.

This is a classic Bed and Breakfast, the host if charming and extremely helpful. The breakfast was fabulous and the town is just delightful. Stay here, it's a great place. The rooms are cozy and smartly decorated. I'd go again in a heartbeat.

My husband and I arrived late in the evening after our wedding at this B&B and were greeted in person by David, the owner. He showed us around and was extremely hospitable. Even before we arrived, I'd called ahead of time to check that my food allergies (gluten free and dairy free) could be accommodated and David was helpful and...

My husband and I came for an anniversary. The place is beautiful and comfortable. You can walk around town from here. The decor is so tasteful. The owner is very nice and had a wine and cheese hour included which is a great touch before dinner. The breakfast was tasty!

We found this establishment on the web and chose it because most of the other lodging in Half Moon Bay looked pretty tired and musty. We stayed in the room that has private access -- it looked large and nicely decorated and included a very deep soaking tub plus fireplace. It also comes with breakfast served in your room. The...

Back for another stay at the Inn and another Pumpkin Festival. David is very welcoming and will attend to whatever needs may come up for you while staying in Half Moon Bay. He makes a fabulous breakfast. Location is perfect, right on Main Street. Put this on your bucket list.

Called the day before we wanted to go due to circumstances elsewhere and we got the Nantucket room: king bed, in room hot tub, and breakfast brought to our room. It was peaceful and lovely! The first morning David brought eggs benedict; the second morning it was waffles and apple chicken sausage. They have really spruced up the garden and...

My honey and I stayed at the Nantucket Whale Inn during the end of May for four days. The bed, linens, design, common area and gardens were gorgeous. Attention to detail throughout the home was impressive! We stayed in the Milestone room. First of all - that bed!! It was four layers of luxury. Every day we talked about how...
