Exceeded expectations

4.4 on March 08, 2014

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.


Serenity and personality

5 on January 10, 2014

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.


Always a delight

4.8 on September 07, 2013

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.

Coastal Oasis

5 on July 30, 2012

A hidden gem on the wild coast south of San Francisco. Great rooms, amazing food and gracious hosts.


Eccentric B & B

2.8 on July 22, 2012

Our room was lovely. However, the B & B is rather eccentric. I never felt 100 per cent comfortable there. Perhaps, it is the history of the building. Maybe, it is the "tea time." Or it could be the extraordinary "precision" of check in/check out time and breakfast time. It's too structured for my taste. It has an odd feeling to me. My husband did not notice anything. So, to be fair, I'd give it three stars.


What a gem!

4.6 on June 25, 2012

My wife and I recently took her dream drive up the California coast along Route 1. We spent several nights at Goose & Turrets B&B. The proprietors, Raymond and Emily are wonderful, interesting people. The house is full of nice pieces collected from around the world. The room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfasts that we were served were delicious multi-course affairs. Tea and homemade snacks were served every afternoon at 4:30. Raymond and Emily had great recommendations for restaurants to eat at and places to see. This was a great find.


Wonderful Stay

5 on March 25, 2012

I loved the old historic house and the gardens were beautiful. Very interesting inn owners with delightful conversation.


Wonderful hospitality!

Emily & Raymond were the most gracious hosts I have ever experienced. Highly recommended!
