Liz and Carol are the best innkeepers, owners, hosts, we have ever met. They truly welcome guests and treat them as family. With love and grace, they have created a piece of paradise along the beautiful Pacific Coast. Accommodations are beautiful, comfortable and spotless. The food is amazing! Breakfast, snacks, wine, freshly squeezed juice, amazing coffee, mouth-watering buttery croissants, french crepes, and beautiful fruit and berries. They do the B and B part with 5 stars! But the hospitality, and kindness, and love for their neighbor and their world, is something that doesn't come up in a review format. This separates them from all the other places we have stayed. Every guest felt special! It's no wonder they have repeat guests, a waiting list and friends across the globe.
My husband and I spent two nights in the Chatham Suite at the Kate Stanton Inn for our Wedding in San Diego. We could not have enjoyed the experience more. The Innkeepers Liz and Carol were a joy to be around. Liz kept in contact before our trip. She obtained several details from us, including what we liked to eat, and arranged a lunch for us while we got ready on our wedding day. Liz and Carol prepared breakfast for us both days and the spread was delicious! We spent the evening of our wedding sharing some cake with them. The suite was beautiful as was the rest of the home. We have never experienced a stay like this one and we cannot wait to come back. Highly recommend Kate Stanton Inn!
My husband and I stayed with Liz and Carol when we went out to CA to visit my daughter for her birthday! Lovely home and breakfast was delightful! Will be coming back when we go and visit the area again. Thanks Liz and Carol for everything!
My wife and I spent 2 wonderful days at the inn. Liz and Carol are perfect hosts and were gracious enough to allow us to stay in their beautiful home. Everything was perfect from the food to the furnishings. We will definitely return when we need another break from the Az.heat. Highly recommended! Thank you Liz and Carol!
Beautiful property and charming room fully remodeled to Nantucket style theme. Private bath and patio on ground floor made this a wonderful weekend for my wife and I. We were there for a Sunday wedding and Liz allowed us a late check to accommodate the afternoon start time. She also had coffee set up for us each morning by 5:30 am as we are both early risers. Delicious food and great conversations with Inn keepers and other guests made for a perfect weekend.
We very much enjoyed our two night stay at the Kate Stanton Inn. The Inn is a lovely home situated in paradise, otherwise known as Encinitas. The beach is an easy 1/4 mile walk from the Inn, and the location provides easy access to all of the North County beach towns. The proprietor, Liz and the innkeeper, Carol are two of the most gracious and interesting women you are ever likely to meet. They provided good wine and even better conversation in the early evening. Carol's breakfasts were scrumptious and satisfying. Our room was beautifully appointed and comfortable. We hope to find time for another stay at the Kate Stanton Inn soon!
I just spend 5 wonderful days at the Kate Stanton Inn. Liz and Carol's home is beautiful, extremely clean, tidy, charming and very lovely. I woke up to a wonderful breakfast, great coffee and watching Hummingbirds from my bedroom terrace. I will never stay in a Hotel again when I come to visit San Diego. Just beautiful, loved it!!
My husband and I had a wonderfully peaceful and memorable stay at this beautiful B&B. We felt like we made two new friends. Liz and Carol are so welcoming and generous and wanted to make sure we had a great time. We will most definitely return again. We stayed in the Chatham Suite and the room, along with the view, was absolutely beautiful. We will happily be recommending it to our friends and family!
No words can express the wonderful time my family and I had at the Kate Stanton Inn! The home is impeccable, and the service is out of this world. Incredibly comfortable rooms and beds. The decor in the rooms is both comforting and relaxing. The pictures don't do it justice. The food was home cooked and made with so much love and care. It was delicious!!! Liz and Carol are warm and welcoming. You leave knowing you have new friends forever, and for us, we have new members for our family. They are the perfect guide for your relaxed or active vacation. We have visited San Diego many times before, and this was our first time at a B&B. I don't think we will ever stay anywhere else while in San Diego. This was the first time we all felt rested while on vacation... No need for a vacation after your vacation after you stay at Kate Stanton Inn. We can't wait to go back!!
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!
