A charming location (Leucadia). Our spotless and beautifully appointed room, the Nantucket Suite, had a fabulous bed and wonderful linens. Very pleasant, friendly and helpful hosts were available and knowledgeable. The lovely breakfasts and especially the home made bran muffins were so appreciated! Highly recommend Kate Stanton Inn anyone wanting a for superior B&B experience.
This place definitely exceeded expectations. It's in a quiet neighborhood near both the freeway and the beach, so very convenient. Liz and Carol do a fantastic job as innkeepers; their hospitality is warm but not intrusive. They do a great job of making you feel at home. As an example, after a long, cross-country flight, I arrived at the inn around 10:00 PM and a hot dinner was awaiting me. The Nantucket room is comfortable, large and well maintained. The breakfasts were wonderful, with fresh fruit, juice and eggs. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a luxurious small inn with a great innkeeper's touch.
Liz and Carol did a great job of tending to all of our needs during our stay at the Inn. We had 4 delicious breakfasts at the Inn, plus coffee or wine in the late afternoon after we had returned from our daytime adventures. For our nights out, the Inn is 5 minutes away from Mr. Peabody's, which has different types of live music every night, and 3 minutes away from Fish 101, which serves the best fish in Encinitas. The Kate Stanton Inn is named after and dedicated to the grandmother of Liz. We enjoyed our stay very much, and plan to return next summer
The Inn is lovely, not too upscale, exactly as it should be for a beach town, comfortable, and cozy. Nima greeted us warmly and he gave us a tour, answered questions, gave advice, and prepared a delicious extravagant breakfast for us all the next morning. They even have beach towels and boogie boards for you, and a coffeemaker in the room. What a nice place. We enjoyed it thoroughly, I I hope to take my daughter there soon for a getaway from the LA job grind. Oh try it~ you will love it too! (:
From the moment we stepped foot in the Kate Stanton Inn, Liz and Carol made us feel at home. Their meticulous attention to the details of truly providing their guests with gracious hospitality pours out in abundance. You can't go wrong with a stay at the Kate Stanton Inn!
Liz and Carol hosted me and two friends for a long weekend. From booking the room to our farewell, Liz and Carol did not skip a beat in terms of service, warmth and overall quality. They made us feel so welcomed and pampered. It all started with a beautiful cheese platter and wine when we arrived. It would require too much space to adequately describe the delicious and gourmet breakfasts. They had no problem catering to our vegetarian diets and working around our schedules. When we decided the second night that we wanted to catch the sunset, they even packed us wine and cheese to go! The room was also spectacular. The huge windows and breezy air made it a delightful place to wake up. All amenities were covered. I have never experienced such great towels! Bottom line, we had a wonderful getaway and we are grateful to our gracious hosts. We will be back!
I often come down to visit my daughter in Encinitas, and am so happy to have found such a wonderful place to stay in that area, It's practically a destination in itself. I love the intimacy, comforts, and beauty of the home. The innkeepers also happen to be very warm and accomodating. I will stay here often! K. McCorkle, Alamo, CA
My boyfriend and I recently stayed at this wonderful Inn. We have both stayed at other Inns in the past, but this one was by far the best! We loved getting to know Carol and Liz and they made us feel right at home. Staying here really made our trip so much for enjoyable. The breakfasts are amazing; better than a restaurant! There were so many thoughtful things that they offered us, such as a glass of wine upon our arrival, beach chairs and towels, and even a snack for our long plane ride home. We will definitely be staying here the next time we visit the area!
The inn was fantastic, we had a relaxing weekend in Encinitas, it's walking distance to downtown, great location. Helen made us breakfast every morning and gave us advice on local sites and suggestions. Would definitely come back.
We found our stay to be relaxing, comfortable, and delicious. Our hosts had excellent suggestions of things to do, and they were well equipped for whatever outing the guests wanted. Meal conversations were interesting and lively. All effort was made for a welcoming visit, and we were so happy with our selection to celebrate our anniversary.
My husband and I had a really wonderful weekend being pampered at the Kate Stanton Inn. Liz and Carol were gracious hosts and anticipated, and took care of, our every need without us even having to ask. The breakfasts both morning were delicious and Liz made sure to cater them to our tastes. She offered us wine and appetizers in the afternoon, and we had a great time sitting at the kitchen counter talking with her and the other guests. Liz's house is just beautiful and the garden, with its view of the water, is a tranquil place to sit and enjoy a morning cup of coffee. I really can't say enough about what a gem the Kate Stanton Inn is. We will definitely be back. Thank you Liz and Carol!
Had a marvellous visit to the Kate Stanton. while the rooms and food was spot on, it was the innkeepers that made it such a highlight of our trip. Would definitely and completely recommend for all.
Looking through TripAdvisor for a hotel in Encinitas, I decided to do something I never do, consider a B&B. I have nothing against B&B`s, but somehow never got into the habit of using them. This time I had a motive, I wanted to feel a little bit "taken care of", as I was on a house hunting trip for our family, soon to move to this beautiful but unfamiliar area. The Kate Stanton Inn and Liz and Carol and their whole extended family provided me all the warmth I was hoping for. Such kind people! You can tell that they love doing what they do. The room itsefl was marvelous. So fresh, clean, comfortable and well decorated! The breakfasts were absolutely delicious. If you are looking for a warm and friendly place quite different from your typical hotel, by all means consider this Inn where Liz and Carol will provide you a warm welcome.
My husband and I stayed at this wonderful Inn for Valentine's Day weekend and so enjoyed our stay. The Innkeeper Liz is very nice and aims to please. Our room was well designed, clean and comfortable. Breakfast both days was beyond our expectations, homemade, fresh and delicious. Liz and Carol are truly a delight to visit with. We would recommend you stay at Kate Stanton Inn for a lovely time.
We had an amazing weekend at this beautiful B&B and we are already missing everything about this place; our room the Chatham suite is spectacular and those views are so relaxing along with a bathroom the size of a suite itself. The breakfasts and the conversations with Liz and Carol were the best of this trip. We stay in beautiful places and I have to say that this is the room that we have found to be the most relaxing of all. We will be returning as soon as we can take another trip to this amazing place since we got spoiled for other places., Thank you Liz and Carol for a blissful weekend!
Room was perfect. The inn was so wonderful. The breakfast, coffee, snacks, wine... just perfect. We felt spoiled there! I could just hang out an chat with the owners all day. It is just like visiting family back in Vermont, only this was MORE comfortable :) Can't wait to visit again, truly this is a home away from home. My wife and I sincerely thank everyone at the inn for just the most lovely stay !!
Forget 5 star hotels and motels. You have to give this one a go. I stayed there for 7 days and it was faultless. Hosts were two mature ladies who were the perfect hosts. Tell your family and friends, you won't regret it. Watch out for the breakfast, never the same twice and Michelin award standard.
My wife and I loved staying here for our anniversary, we are so glad we came across it online! Wine and cheese in the afternoon, wonderful breakfasts each morning...we were definitely taken care of. The property is peaceful and immaculate, with great views up the coastline from the backyard patio. All the details, big and small, were covered. Top-notch all the way, we highly recommend!
This is the best B&B we have stayed at. The innkeeper, Liz, was absolutely the nicest, friendliest innkeeper we have met in our 25 years of B&B getaway weekends. We felt like we were visiting dear friends and were pampered as such. The Nantucket room is lovely, very comfortable with thick soft towels and cozy throws. The electric fireplace makes it romantic. The breakfasts were outstanding and generous. I am definitely looking forward to a return visit.
Two nights at the Kate Stanton Inn was relaxing and truly refreshed my spirit! The Nantucket Suite is spacious with a light airy decor and a comfortable bed. The hosts create a good balance of hospitality and conversation with an awareness of your privacy. Breakfast is served to you at the table with delicious results! The sweet dog and cats create a homelike atmosphere that's welcome for animal lovers. A must stay for anyone who enjoys the comforts of a B&B.
It was so different to enjoy a welcome committee upon arrival! Liz & Carol have every base covered from personalized toiletries to a book and DVD collection at your disposal. Having wine in the evening by their fireplace was especially relaxing. Staying here was 100% better than staying at the much larger hotel where my Company seminar was held. Thank you ladies for your hospitality, french toast and enjoyable conversations! Heather
Beautiful home in perfect location to access San Diego area, meticulously clean, exceptionally gracious hosts who warmly welcome you to share their home. Nantucket Room is decorated in crisp blue and white, bed and linens are plush and inviting. There is an in-room electric fireplace to warm you as well as a ceiling fan and french doors that open to private patio to cool you. We loved the full sized bathroom with window seat and large glass enclosed shower. We cherished our stay at the Kate Stanton Inn - so very comfortable! Returning each night after touring San Diego area all day truly felt like stepping into a peaceful and nurturing oasis. Liz and Carol are "one-of-a-kind" on the scale of B&B innkeepers. They greet you warmly and sincerely, prepare and provide a plentiful and tasty breakfast with careful and thoughtful attention to any dietary needs, offer yummy and healthy snacks accompanied with wine in the afternoon (to which they welcomed our daughter whom we were visiting), and even sent us off to the airport with a wonderful bagged meal to eat at departure!! Liz and Carol trumped all previous experiences we have had at a B&B, and coming from the New England area where B&B's are plentiful, this is saying a lot. We would return to the Kate Stanton Inn without question - it's perfect! -Denise and Steve, Boston area
As a repeat visitor, the Kate Stanton Inn is the finest Bed and Breakfast I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. If I am anywhere near (even if it's not so close) this location, I won't stay anywhere else. Liz and Carol are the very best hosts. Exceptionally clean, tastefully decorated, wonderful food. I will certainly be back. Warren and Malia Gilbert, AZ
Though we were gone more than we were there, I would absolutely recommend the Kate Stanton Inn to visitors to Encinitas. I would also stay there again. Everything was absolutely wonderful. Didn't think I'd like sharing a bathroom, but even that was seamless.
As a native of San Diego, I was looking for a quaint and cozy weekend near the beach and away from the big hotels. We got that and much, much more! Liz made my husband and I feel at home with incredible breakfasts every morning and a glass of wine at sunset on the deck. Terrific accommodations and we will definitely be back!!!
