The innkeeper, Liz, was a gracious hostess who made us feel at home. The room was beautiful and so comfortable---the decor was lovely. Breakfast was great. I would love to go back.

Forget 5 star hotels and motels. You have to give this one a go. I stayed there for 7 days and it was faultless. Hosts were two mature ladies who were the perfect hosts. Tell your family and friends, you won't regret it. Watch out for the breakfast, never the same twice and Michelin award standard.

My wife and I loved staying here for our anniversary, we are so glad we came across it online! Wine and cheese in the afternoon, wonderful breakfasts each morning...we were definitely taken care of. The property is peaceful and immaculate, with great views up the coastline from the backyard patio. All the details, big and small, were covered. Top-notch all the way, we highly recommend!

This is the best B&B we have stayed at. The innkeeper, Liz, was absolutely the nicest, friendliest innkeeper we have met in our 25 years of B&B getaway weekends. We felt like we were visiting dear friends and were pampered as such. The Nantucket room is lovely, very comfortable with thick soft towels and cozy throws. The electric fireplace makes it romantic. The breakfasts were outstanding and generous. I am definitely looking forward to a return visit.

Two nights at the Kate Stanton Inn was relaxing and truly refreshed my spirit! The Nantucket Suite is spacious with a light airy decor and a comfortable bed. The hosts create a good balance of hospitality and conversation with an awareness of your privacy. Breakfast is served to you at the table with delicious results! The sweet dog and cats create a homelike atmosphere that's welcome for animal lovers. A must stay for anyone who enjoys the comforts of a B&B.

It was so different to enjoy a welcome committee upon arrival! Liz & Carol have every base covered from personalized toiletries to a book and DVD collection at your disposal. Having wine in the evening by their fireplace was especially relaxing. Staying here was 100% better than staying at the much larger hotel where my Company seminar was held. Thank you ladies for your hospitality, french toast and enjoyable conversations! Heather

Beautiful home in perfect location to access San Diego area, meticulously clean, exceptionally gracious hosts who warmly welcome you to share their home. Nantucket Room is decorated in crisp blue and white, bed and linens are plush and inviting. There is an in-room electric fireplace to warm you as well as a ceiling fan and french doors that open to private patio to cool you. We loved the full sized bathroom with window seat and large glass enclosed shower. We cherished our stay at the Kate Stanton Inn - so very comfortable! Returning each night after touring San Diego area all day truly felt like stepping into a peaceful and nurturing oasis. Liz and Carol are "one-of-a-kind" on the scale of B&B innkeepers. They greet you warmly and sincerely, prepare and provide a plentiful and tasty breakfast with careful and thoughtful attention to any dietary needs, offer yummy and healthy snacks accompanied with wine in the afternoon (to which they welcomed our daughter whom we were visiting), and even sent us off to the airport with a wonderful bagged meal to eat at departure!! Liz and Carol trumped all previous experiences we have had at a B&B, and coming from the New England area where B&B's are plentiful, this is saying a lot. We would return to the Kate Stanton Inn without question - it's perfect! -Denise and Steve, Boston area

As a repeat visitor, the Kate Stanton Inn is the finest Bed and Breakfast I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. If I am anywhere near (even if it's not so close) this location, I won't stay anywhere else. Liz and Carol are the very best hosts. Exceptionally clean, tastefully decorated, wonderful food. I will certainly be back. Warren and Malia Gilbert, AZ

Though we were gone more than we were there, I would absolutely recommend the Kate Stanton Inn to visitors to Encinitas. I would also stay there again. Everything was absolutely wonderful. Didn't think I'd like sharing a bathroom, but even that was seamless.
