Everything was excellent. The owners are extraordinary, generous and filled with life experience. They kindly let our daughter and son in law join us for afternoon tea. Excellent food. Very relaxing. Very environmentally responsible using recycled water for their outside landscaping.

We come here every year. Gourmet breakfast and tea, and Raymond is happy to explain how he grows much of the produce himself and makes most dishes from scratch. A house filled with books and art. Very accommodating hosts.

We have stayed at the Goose and Turret many times while visiting family in Montara and Half Moon Bay, and frequently meet other repeat guests at the B&B. Breakfast is delicious with multiple courses that change daily. We enjoy talking with Emily and Raymond about flying, traveling, cooking, gardening and other interests. I also enjoy practicing French with Raymond, who has a French background.
