A rare combination of Baja-style relaxed living and the graciousness and charm of New England, The Kate Stanton Inn opens its doors to guests who seek casual elegance in their travels. Situated between the Interstate 5 Freeway and Pacific Coast Highway (old 101), the Inn sits atop a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Batiquitos Lagoon in North San Diego County, within walking distance from Carlsbad State beach. Our Inn offers bright, beautifully appointed guest rooms and an open floor plan. Relax, with the morning paper or evening brandy, in our family room, furnished in rich leather, warm woods, and a fire burning brightly on chilly evenings. Or enjoy afternoon tea or wine and cheese in our sunny living room, furnished in soothing pastels. Breakfast is served daily in the dining room, or, for a more intimate gathering, around the kitchen counter, chatting with the innkeeper. In spring and summer, meals and refreshments can be enjoyed on your private patio or balcony.

Looking through TripAdvisor for a hotel in Encinitas, I decided to do something I never do, consider a B&B. I have nothing against B&B`s, but somehow never got into the habit of using them. This time I had a motive, I wanted to feel a little bit "taken care of", as I was on a house hunting trip for our family, soon to move to this beautiful but unfamiliar area. The Kate Stanton Inn and Liz and Carol and their whole extended family provided me all the warmth I was hoping for. Such kind people! You can tell that they love doing what they do. The room itsefl was marvelous. So fresh, clean, comfortable and well decorated! The breakfasts were absolutely delicious. If you are looking for a warm and friendly place quite different from your typical hotel, by all means consider this Inn where Liz and Carol will provide you a warm welcome.

My husband and I stayed at this wonderful Inn for Valentine's Day weekend and so enjoyed our stay. The Innkeeper Liz is very nice and aims to please. Our room was well designed, clean and comfortable. Breakfast both days was beyond our expectations, homemade, fresh and delicious. Liz and Carol are truly a delight to visit with. We would recommend you stay at Kate Stanton Inn for a lovely time.

We had an amazing weekend at this beautiful B&B and we are already missing everything about this place; our room the Chatham suite is spectacular and those views are so relaxing along with a bathroom the size of a suite itself. The breakfasts and the conversations with Liz and Carol were the best of this trip. We stay in beautiful places and I have to say that this is the room that we have found to be the most relaxing of all. We will be returning as soon as we can take another trip to this amazing place since we got spoiled for other places., Thank you Liz and Carol for a blissful weekend!

Room was perfect. The inn was so wonderful. The breakfast, coffee, snacks, wine... just perfect. We felt spoiled there! I could just hang out an chat with the owners all day. It is just like visiting family back in Vermont, only this was MORE comfortable :) Can't wait to visit again, truly this is a home away from home. My wife and I sincerely thank everyone at the inn for just the most lovely stay !!

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.
