Nice high-end B&B

4.2 on April 21, 2015

We spent two nights in early April at this spectacular B&B, situated in the mountains and immediately adjacent to the Topanga Canyon State Park. The view from the top deck (coffee nook) area is amazing, and we could hear valley quail and the neighborhood peacocks calling in early morning. The rooms were very clean, quiet and comfortable, with very tasteful furnishings and wall art done by the owner (paintings) and her daughter (nature photographs). You can walk up a steep dirt road behind the inn and right into the park in about 1/3 mile. Owners were very friendly and the tasty breakfast (over the 2 days it featured scrambled eggs, bacon, fresh pineapple, homemade blueberry muffins, french toast) was served promptly at 9 AM. We like B&B's, and this was one of the nicest and most expensive we had stayed in, but you get what you pay for.


AMAZING!!!!!

Ok ,I have to admit that I was a little skeptical when my husband said we were staying in a room named after movie stars; it was perfect!!!!! The host family was so helpful and kind. The breakfasts were WONDERFUL! I am a celiac and I enjoyed Belgian waffles just like everyone else. I had something yummy and gluten free everyday. I felt like a princess! Did I mention that we were 20 minutes from the beach? What a beautiful area!!!


Magic in the Canyon

Had a wonderful stay. The setting is beautiful. The rooms are well appointed with original artwork, and antique furnishings. Beds were comfortable. Sleep was amazingly peaceful. This is truly a family run business - that puts a lot of love and care into the B&B. They were very accommodating, and have a knack for showing up at the right time, without intruding on the stay. The B&B is designed in a way that you have a sense of privacy, with great common space. The breakfasts consisted of delicious food, and great conversation. Made some new friends - some from the town I grew up in and as far away as Denmark. A lovely contrast to the typical hotel and the surrounding LA area - if you were to go here blindfolded, you would think you were swept away to a Mediterranean villa. Best part - the kids can't wait to return. Thank you to Elena, Warren and family for a wonderful, memorable experience!


Outstanding

My wife and I came to LA for a getaway from our hectic lives in New Mexico. Honestly. The Topanga Inn was just what we needed. We had a perfect three day stay. Enjoyed the hospitality and calm of Karina and Warren and the family and the perfect peaceful evening atop the mountains. The lodging was just exceptional in, our opinion. We also enjoyed the local beaches, The Getty Villa, and horseback riding at LA horseback Riding close by and a wonderful meal at The Inn of the Seventh Ray. I can't say enough about the quality of our getaway. We were absolutely delighted. Definitely on our list of places we'd like to return to.


Magical place high in the hills

Everything lived up to our expectations. Warm welcome, comfortable rooms, good breakfast. We wished we could have stayed longer to enjoy the place and surroundings.


A beautiful place to relax

4.6 on March 18, 2015

Long Beach is my home, so this isn't far at all. We stayed in a wonderful room with a Jacuzzi. Froggy's is a near by tasty restaurant. A wonderful night. Woke up to a tasty breakfast with two other families. Went for a short hike in the afternoon. This is our second time. We'll be back!


Great little gem so near to LA

4.2 on March 12, 2015

Stayed here for a night to start the PCH drive. Wish we had longer, great location only a few miles from LA but really peaceful. Very friendly hosts, communal breakfast was really pleasant and conversation flowed while eating good food. Would highly recommend this place and hopefully will stay again next time we are on the west coast


Great place to stay

3.8 on February 27, 2015

This is the 3rd or 4th time we have stayed at this B&B. What we have come to expect is a first class place all the way. And have never been disappointed.
