The hosts were very attentive and so interesting - the rooms were great and the breakfasts huge and delicious. Although the ocean view was a little distant, the setting was gorgeous. We will go back.
We had two options: a room with a fantastic view of the ocean, or a suite with bedroom and living/dining area with kitchenette. We opted for the suite, but both were modern, very clean, and in a peaceful location, in spite of other homes nearby. The innkeepers are friendly and the breakfast great.
We stayed in the suite and took advantage of the facilities for dinner. We enjoyed walking at cape Pestua and on the dunes ,seashore. The website is accurate in the description. Penny and David were very helpful.
This charming B&B was a hidden gem. The owners directed us to some unique viewpoints with driving instructions. They warmly welcomed us into their home and served us a a traditional pioneer style breakfast. We would highly recommend this place.
This is a basic, no frills B&B. It was a good value for us as it served our purpose to stay on the coast and not spend a lot of money. Pleasantly surprised to have a suite with a microwave, refrigerator and separate sitting room from the bedroom. The innkeepers were very nice and informational. Breakfast was French toast, fruit and microwaved bacon...not gourmet if that is what you are looking for. Not much in this town, but we knew that from other posts and had dinner in Newport before we arrived here.
My family of three had a wonderful 3-day stay at Resting On The Rock B&B. Facilities are super clean and comfortable. The hosts are accommodating and we left feeling like we had made friends. Short walk to a great beach with active tide pools and indeed it does have seals on rocks as well. Short distance to Beaver Creek (Ona Park) where we had a marvelous experience with a guided kayak tour. Short drive to Hatfield Marine Ctr. I cannot think of anything negative to say in regards to our accommodations at all! If you get a chance - go!
Penny is a gracious hostess, sharing her home, her crafts, and her family with guests. My daughter and I booked the sunset room and enjoyed watching the skies darken over the Pacific. The room was spacious with extras like movies, books, a private bath, and plenty of pillows. We scheduled our breakfast time and were called down by beautiful music to blueberry French toast with wild berries from the yard. Penny's art is amazing and she keeps a beautiful home. For more space, the other room includes a kitchenette and sitting room. The grounds are also beautiful with all kinds of birds gathering at feeders. I wish we had planned to stay more than one night. Penny goes the extra mike. She even mailed my daughter's phone charger to our home address. Knowing I was a scrapbooker, she also supplied brochures and beautiful cards to take with us. I would change a thing. It was fabulous.
My husband and I enjoyed two days at Resting on a Rock. The owner was very helpful in providing information about the local area (state parks, restaurants, etc.). The breakfast meals were delicious and presented very nice. The room was equipped with a kitchenette and all the amenities we wanted. We would definitely stay there again.
AMAZZZING.... I wish we could have stayed here the whole honeymoon! Relaxing, Fun, Food was amazing... Mrs. Penny Made sure we had everything that we needed... Very fun Couple....made you feel like family. Could not rate it to highly! BY FAR the best place we stayed. There is a short walk to the beach and when you get down to it you are pretty much alone....Great place to get away from it all! Me and my wife need to save up money because we want to go back VERY soon.
My husband made reservations to stay here for our honeymoon. When we arrived we were made to feel welcome. The room was beautiful and comfortable and We slept great listening to the ocean out the window. The breakfasts were delicious and Penny was very accommodating when it came to our food restrictions. It was the little touches while we were there, like the flowers and card left in our room, that made us feel special. We left vowing to return each year for our anniversary and have made it so far.
Resting on the Rock provided a peaceful place to stay on the Central Coast near busy Newport. The Sunset Room was well designed with everything that 3 of us needed. Penny and David Mackey were wonderful hosts, and offered information on farmers markets and restaurants, local birds and the resident pod of whales. Penny's breakfasts were superb! Be sure to checkout the children's book nook, David's trains and Penny's weavings.
We stayed here in July 2012 and really enjoyed it. The hosts were delightful, and it was quiet and a short walk from a beautiful beach. It's close to Newport but not right in town, which we liked. An added bonus is that Penny is very flexible with the menu and can work with people on special diets (gluten free and other food allergies/sensitivities). The breakfasts we had were delicious.
We recently stayed at Resting on the Rock with our two children. It was a wonderful experience - like staying at the grandparents' house. Breakfast was homemade, large, and delicious. Our food allergies were all accommodated. The suite had a private entrance and was very roomy. And Penny was so friendly, accommodating, and helpful with everything. Very enjoyable!
We stayed here for three nights. It did not exceed our expectations because we knew what to expect from our visit the previous year; that's why we came back. The hosts are terrific and provided us with some excellent suggestions for hikes, etc. The bed was very comfy and the room is spacious.
