Wonderful getaway

Two great nights with a view of the ocean. Personal service and a short walk to the coast.

Great if you like antique atmosphere

No T.V. and the Wi-Fi is spotty. Nice clean room. Friendly staff. Late 1800 decore. Fun for a change. Fresh eggs from chickens in a cute chicken coop in the backyard. Redwood plank floor and high ceilings. I am not into antiques, but if you are you will like this BB.

We just returned from a wonderful weekend in which we stayed at the Weller House Inn. It was a warm and comfortable place to stay and the staff was helpful and delightful. We will definetly return again.

Warm and Hospitable B&B

My husband and I had a lovely time in that interim between Christmas and New Years by visiting Fort Bragg's Weller House Inn. The staff were attentive, our room was very pretty, plus we had the unique priviledge to participate in tango lessons which happened to be offered right upstairs in the ballroom during our stay!

Greatest place I've never stayed.

An untimely but timely relationship termination caused me to cancel my reservation last minute. Vivian was very understanding and helpful allowing me to reschedule another day in the future. I will be status g there as often as possible just because of that.

Beautifully restored rooms

Breakfast is fresh and healthy; eggs come fresh from the 12 chickens outside the back door. Rooms are beautifully restored, clean and comfortable. Heat in the rooms is in the floor, and it is wonderful.

Great Place to Stay

We had a great stay at the Weller House! The breakfast was the best we've had at a B&B. We loved that we could walk to the Skunk Train easily, and we could watch the train leave from the station from the water tower. We hope to come back when there is a Tango class happening. Vivien, the Innkeeper was delightful. We highly recommend the Weller House to people who want to step out of the ordinary.

Our room was really inviting, with extremely comfortable linens and (very important to me) pillows were exceptional. Our breakfast included Vivien's homemade ginger scones with local jams. Very yummy. Thank you Vivien

A Vintage Delight Just Off Main Street

4.0 on October 09, 2011

Our weekend at Weller House was charming and a delight. The Tulip Room is one of the loveliest we've enjoyed in a B&B. And where there was a problem with the shower fixture over the marvelous claw-foot bathtub, the Inn's pleasant and efficient staff got right to it. Our breakfasts were hearty and delicious, with eggs from the chicken coop out back. Wine and cheese was a welcome touch at he end of the afternoon. We'd seen some previous negative reviews, but they evidently precede when the current owner took over last spring. (She had managed the property previously, but ownership evidently brought with it welcome changes.) We also like that Weller House is a block off of Main Street, both easily acceptable to shops and restaurants (Try Roundman's meats and smokehouse for great charcuterie and Mendo Bistro for dinner) but is also quietly removed from traffic. Also, the redwood ballroom on the top floor would be great for and event of group retreat. We definitely recommend Weller House.

One of my favorite B&B's!

One of my favorite B&B's I have stayed at. Fantastic room, upstairs ballroom was exquisite, the keeper was incredibly friendly, only a block from the main street in town and felt right at home.
