About

You’ll feel the stress begin to unwind as soon as you arrive at the door of our Half Moon Bay bed and breakfast. Old Thyme Inn is here to help you rediscover the pleasures of romance, play, and relaxation. Once inside, you will discover an ideal blending of the past and present, with furnishings that are comfortable and casual, featuring innkeeper Kathy’s original "plein air" oil paintings. Late afternoon is time for complimentary California wines and cheeses in the parlor or garden. Rick or Kathy can help you select and make reservations for one of our many excellent local restaurants. When the day is done, climb into bed and surround yourself with comfort and luxury -- all-cotton sheets on a feather bed with down comforter and pillows -- for a rejuvenating and soothing sleep. In the morning, awaken to a delicious full breakfast: organic free-range eggs and local produce, fresh fruit, specialty-grade coffee, and bread and breakfast cakes baked right at our B&B. Now that you’re awake and fully fortified, it’s time to sample the manifold pleasures of Half Moon Bay. Go have some fun!!

A Short Get-Away

5 on October 07, 2013

We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. It was an anniversary celebration get-away for us. We love only an hour and quarter away, but felt that we were longer away. And thanks for having such interesting other guests -- we were the only Americans there. Howard & Debbie Hall


A delight!

4.4 on April 15, 2013

I would have been very happy to stay longer than the 3 nights I was booked in for. The rooms are cosy, clean and attractive, the ambience of the house is comfortable, and there is a lovely garden you can sit in to have that early morning coffee or wine and cheese in the late afternoon. I appreciated the fridge with bottled water for guest use. The Innkeepers have local information well organised and are helpful fonts of information as well as excellent breakfast cooks! To top it off Half Moon Bay is a delight.

Had a lovely stay. The room wasnt huge, but definately big enough for the two of us with two large suitcases. Ammenities were nice, and the supplied breakfast was very nice. I would definately stay there again, and would recommend it our friends.


Delightful and serene

4.8 on April 29, 2012

From the moment we arrived we felt at home! The house is beautiful and our room was immaculate. Clean and cozy. The fountains were perfectly romantic and serene. The 2 person whirlpool tub was so relaxing and my skin has never felt better after using the bath salts! Breakfast was home cooked and delicious!!!
