Our NEW Favorite B&B!!

5 on August 01, 2013

We like to get away to the coast to r-e-l-a-x & have enjoyed a variety of lodging - HOWEVER, Bay Hill Mansion outshines them all. Chris & Gina are outstanding: pampering, accommodating & just plain delightful. The mansion rooms were all designed & equipped for the ultimate experience of 'nothingness' (total relaxation). Bed was extremely comfortable (plus 1,000 thread-count sheets - scrumptious), quiet, great view, lots of windows, large bathroom...all the amenities. We stayed in the Master Suite, but toured the other rooms: gorgeous! Both inside & out were immaculately maintained; very tastefully decorated, plenty of areas to curl up with a book, watch the waves crash, or enjoy all the birds dancing in the trees. FOOD: did I mention the food?? Truly fantastic breakfasts. We booked for 2 nights...ended up staying for three :)...YES, that wonderful!!

Extraordinary place and hosts

Our room was spacious, light-filled and filled with tasteful furnishings and art. The beds were very comfortable; in fact we're tempted to replace ours at home with the same mattresses. The bathroom was large and modern. The common rooms are elegant and inviting for socializing or relaxing. The hosts are wonderful: Attentive to every need and great fun to talk to. The breakfasts were memorable. All in all, highly recommended.

We won't stay anywhere else in Bodega Bay

We came here, recently engaged, and loved our experience. Chris and Gina were friendly and provided top notch service. We followed their recommendations and ended up on a beautiful coastal hike followed by crab sanwiches and a horseback ride on the beach. Chris helped me make all the necessary last minute reservations. When I asked how we could get a copy of The Birds to watch in our room, they went out of their way to get us a new copy- that's real service. Our room was immaculate with great touches like organic soaps and plush towels and robes. The bed was really comfortable. We had a hard time getting out of it in the morning. They even provided a water filter - they pay attentions to the details and it shows. Breakfast was amazing! Make sure to plan a hike to walk your guilt off because you will seriously enjoy yourself. Easy to have a busy bay at the bay or just relax in your comfy room. We had a great time and will be coming back soon.
