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.

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.

As a native of San Diego, I was looking for a quaint and cozy weekend near the beach and away from the big hotels. We got that and much, much more! Liz made my husband and I feel at home with incredible breakfasts every morning and a glass of wine at sunset on the deck. Terrific accommodations and we will definitely be back!!!
