My husband and I stayed for three nights at the Cannel Road Inn, and it felt like a dream vacation! It is a short walk to the beach, and there is a tunnel to the beach for foot traffic that runs under the busy intersection. Each time we were at the beach, it felt private and peaceful. The inn also had a nice breakfast spread with fresh fruit, baked on-site muffins, and other breakfast delights. The atmosphere was relaxed, and there was someone there to make sure the guests were happy at all times. I loved the decor, such as the beautifully adorned living room with fireplace, and the color palette used. They really know how to put the finishing touches on a stay, providing chocolate chip cookies in the room, an hors d'ouvres hour, and even had soft music playing the day of our arrival! We can't wait to go back!
I wouldn't stay anywhere else in the Los Angles area. It was perfectly situated for my conference at the Huntington Library. The choice of local food venues is very good. I would suggest booking early for this one!
This was a wonderful place to spend the night. The concierge was super professional, the view was fabulous, and everything was spotless. We missed breakfast -- had to leave too early -- but the kitchen was well stocked. There was no "onsite dining," but I'll give 'em a 5.
My wife and I stayed a total of four nights. Two before our son's wedding and two nights afterwards. The wedding was fabulous but exhausting and my wife's comment on our return to Hollywood Pensione was that it felt like coming home. Gayle Eisemann, the innkeeper, is warm, friendly and solicitious. Our room was extremely comfortable and we enjoyed the common living room, the updated (as was explained) kitchen and the outdoor balcony. Will definitely want to stay there when we visit Los Angeles again. And that will be soon.
Very warm welcome by my hosts, Room was ready way ahead of time. Public spaces very well appointed, fresh fruit and cookies in the kitchen. TV, ample reading material etc. Met some very nice people who also staying here. All in all: Great!
This was truly a wonderful peaceful getaway. Nice flowers;solid building; great adequate (not huge) breakfast. Very warm friendly hosts. Very clean with beautiful great room and dining area (chairs very loose need tightening). To quiet--no radio in room or TV. In 3 days did not empty overflowing garbage can. My wife missed no mirror in bedroom. Requested change on third day of towels/wash cloth by writing note but was not made. Next time will throw on floor. This is a very isolated location. My wife did not like very long narrow road with many hairpin turns at night and will therefore not return. Had trouble with outside door lock, but staff arrived in short time to help.
Greeted by the wonderful Dominque who made me feel welcome right away and her calm voice and pleasant smile put me right at ease. The room was large, quiet and stylish. The location was perfect to visit restaurants and walk to the beach. I look forward to returning.
My fiancé and I stayed here for his birthday and we loved it! It's quiet, both the other guests and the innkeepers were nice, and the breakfast was amazing. The innkeepers were very polite and organized, which always makes things easy. The room was clean and the houses themselves were beautiful. Definitely didn't feel like LA at all! Perfect local getaway.
We had such a great experience at Channel Road Inn. All the staff were very friendly and super nice to our 3 and 1 year old kids too, like calling them by name. We really felt their hospitality with personal touch. The interior decoration/bedding was superb and we loved the complementary breakfast menu and also the afternoon treat.
We stayed at the Topanga Canyon Inn Bed and Breakfast while celebrating our 51st Wedding Anniversary. This is a family owned inn and we were very impressed with how personable and accommodating they are. They even gave us a box of chocolates in honor of our anniversary! The breakfast was awesome! Great ambience and area is very scenic. La Verne & Linda
Nous avons été très bien accueilli. Joli petit logement très agréable avec la petite cour pour le petit déjeuner du matin très copieux et très bien servi. Yaffa, une très gentille personne que l'on oublie pas et que l'on retrouvera lors de notre prochain séjour.
We were attending a wedding in the area and decided to stay close by. The House is just wonderful and comfortable. The breakfast was healthy and delicious. The view is great and if you are a hiker it is a great area.
I enjoyed my stay at the Topanga Canyon Inn Bed & Breakfast a lot. I booked the Sylvia & Ramon room, which features a spacious, beautiful adobe-type en suite bathroom. The Sylvia & Ramon room was, in my opinion, very favorably redesigned, which is not yet reflected on the website. Furniture is now in darker wood and very much complements the white wall paint. Elena Roche's beautiful art work above the two nightstands make the room perfect. I was checked in by Karina Roche. I truly appreciated her kindness, thoughtfulness and professionalism. After check-in, she asked me if I had any special requests for my breakfast. I briefly mentioned I am fond of gluten-free food, but if this was not available it would be no problem. When she presented me a freshly made, gluten-free French toast the next morning at breakfast, I knew she truly cared. I rated the "onsite dining" in regard to the tasty breakfasts offered, which also featured, on my second day, a delicious organic vegetable casserole. The Roche family has their own, organic vegetable garden nearby at their home. Good restaurants are available in quaint Topanga, a 3-mile drive, and up the coast in nearby Malibu. The Inn itself generously offers complimentary bottled water, a variety of teas, coffee, fresh fruit and cereals. I found the Inn immaculately clean everywhere. Through many a decorative detail, I noticed how much love the Roche family puts into their two beautiful villas, Casa Blanca and Casa Rosa.
Ratings don't tell the whole story. TC Inn is charming, with great views if you have the right rooms.While there are common balconies, 1 or 2 in ea bldg., they are small(Casa Rosa, our bldg. had 1 common balcony with 1 table & 4 chairs & another with 2 chairs. If fellow guests occupy it first, you are out of luck. The Inn is secluded, up a 2 lane canyon road about 6 miles. There are no restaurants or shopping in walking distance of less than 2-3 miles. The last approx.100 yards to the Inn are fairly steep & can make one anxious if one is not accustomed to driving/parking on an incline.There are a lot of stairs & one needs to be fairly fit. I wouldn't recommend this property if one has trouble walking or climbing stairs. The staff is very helpful; our room was somewhat warm, & we were given a fan, which helped.a lot. The public rooms were very comfortable. There was no maid service in our room or bath although both were very clean.I recommend reserving a room with an en suite bath if you can, for privacy. The Inn is quiet & serene, but our most enjoyable experience was the family-style breakfasts, which were delicious, & meeting other guests from all over the U.S. & the world. If you value quiet seclusion, I highly recommend this property..
