Well, I know the locals frown on all the improvements in town, but if you are traveling, wouldn't you want tasteful decor, cozy furnishings, and a great home-made breakfast? Then, we walked up the street to Cetrella and had the best scallops I've ever tried. Thank you David for a comfortable and gracious stay. PS, it was really fun on...

Great breakfast, clean, quiet accommodations. Well maintained, recently renovated. Nice host. Relaxing, quiet weekend get away or a good stop on a coastal (san francisco to los angels) road trip. WIne and cheese before the dinner hour.

In my perfect world, there would be a Nantucket Whale Inn at my every travel destination. David, the owner has a gift of genuine grace and hospitality. He has created an artistic masterpiece for anyone who has the opportunity to visit. I can't remember the last time I stepped into a space of such tasteful and artistic nurturing. A unique...

The owners make a fabulous breakfast. Super friendly and helpful. The room was large, free wifi, TV, DVD player. It has it all. Wine and cheese in the afternoon. Garden setting is beautiful with a fire place to allow remaining outside during the cool coastal evening. Completely remodeled over the past year. Excellent place to stay in Half Moon Bay

I absolutely loved this B & B, and would not want to stay anywhere else if I'm in the area. Beautiful, cozy, clean, quiet, and so many great details in the art, furniture, decor, luxurious carpeting, bathrobes, crystal doorknobs, hand-painted "do not disturb" sign, etc...all with an antique, yet modern feel. During a time when everyone seems to be cutting...

On our California road trip we decided, last minute, to visit Half Moon Bay. Looking in the morning of Saturday 19th we were struggling to find a room for the night. By luck we identified one room left in Nantucket Inn - what a fantastic find. It's not on the beach or a sea view but the Inn is idyllic....

Our stay in the Nantucket Whale Inn was absolutely perfect from start to finish. David, the innkeeper, was so warm and welcoming as soon as we got there, and continued to amaze us throughout our two night stay. We stayed in the Miacomet room which was very romantic, private, and beautifully decorated (as was the rest of the inn). Every...

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here - our room was beautiful (apparently the smallest, but it still seemed spacious) and the B&B itself is lovely, too; it seemed to have been remodeled/refurnished recently, and the furnishings are very luxurious. Our host (Dave, I think?) was very friendly and helpful with local recommendations, and he cooked a delicious...

We stayed two nights and were really happy with the cheese, fruits and wine in the evening and especially impressed by the breakfasts. We stayed in the smallest room -- and it was a bit on the small side -- but still comfortable. The bed and shower are very nice -- TV is too low to see all the screen...
