Monterey Peninsula top-rated, nine guest suite Inn centrally-located within Pacific Grove, an iconic California Central Coast destination long-known for fine lodging. Steps from the Sea, this classic Arts and Crafts style, antique-furnished garden paradise further surprises with light-drenched, contemporary owners’ quarters!
PACIFIC GROVE: THE DESTINATION
Calmly overlooking California’s treasured Central Coast sits Pacific Grove, a gentle, centrally-located Monterey Bay retreat two hours south of San Francisco and a mere one hour from Silicon Valley. Following the town’s world-renown 17-Mile Drive, golfers can tee off at Pebble Beach within 20 minutes. In less than 15 minutes, shoppers can be strolling down Ocean Avenue in tony Carmel-by-the-Sea. Within five minutes, marine biologists can commence research at Cannery Row’s famed Monterey Bay Aquarium.
Poised at the entry to Monterey Bay, this picturesque, crisp air village enjoys a year-round temperate climate. Known as "Butterfly Town USA," Pacific Grove hosts thousands of monarch butterflies who return annually -- as loyal guests -- to “winter” in this seaside haven. But it is Pacific Grove’s strategic strength as Monterey Bay’s most central lodging destination coupled with its decades-long, reputation for “perfect refuge” that explain its plethora of fine, historic boutique inns.
THE OLD SAINT ANGELA INN
A quiet stroll through iconic Pacific Grove reveals some of the town’s over 1,000 Victorians and early “Arts and Crafts” residences – all displaying plaques engraved with names of original owners and construction dates. Each fall, some are invited to participate in Pacific Grove’s prestigious Annual October Historic Home Tour. One of these, donning its own such engraved plaque, is an “Arts and Crafts Style, circa 1910, Cape Cod” Bed and Breakfast Inn. Boasting “original” wavy glass window panes and a prime location one block from the Sea, The Old Saint Angela Inn is a repeat-performance participant in Pacific Grove’s Annual Historic Home Tour.
The Old Saint Angela offers 5,130 square feet of two-storey, guest living space on a desirable, 7,200 square foot, in-town corner parcel. Sunny, peaceful and meticulously-maintained, The Old Saint Angela provides an inviting ambience of luxurious warmth throughout its nine spacious guest suites with “jet tub” baths, welcoming front lobby with handsome cut stone fireplace and elegant, formal guest dining room but also surprises with its delightful inner solarium and serene gardens – “hidden-from-the-world,” secret sanctuaries where guests may relax and savor scrumptious morning fare. Together, this light-drenched solarium and its attached, professionally-manicured gardens form the “heart and soul” of The Old Saint Angela Inn.
Dressed with treasured antique furnishings, charming decorative accessories, finished with wainscoting, polished hardwood floors, Dutch-style “stable” doors and quaint “original” window framing, The Old Saint Angela Inn offers classic California hospitality on a “large” scale. Check the reviews on TripAdvisor; this elegant, top-rated Inn outperforms even its significant, nearby competition, including other high-end inns operated by respected, professional B&B management firms!
