Imagine waking up in the morning to freshly brewed coffee and a warm breakfast you didn’t have to cook, knowing the Pacific Ocean is within walking distance. The California coast has some cozy and charming B&Bs, ready to offer respite after a stressful holiday season. Head to one of these spots when you need to get away.
On the Beach Bed & Breakfast, Cayucos
On The Beach Bed and Breakfast is a charming 14 room B&B in Cayucos that’s owned by a couple who has put a lot of effort into making it spectacular. Each room has either an ocean or a partial ocean view, and they’re decked out in amenities like fireplaces and Jacuzzi tubs.
The Venice Beach House
The team at the Venice Beach House is all about offering a close and personal experience you won’t find at a standard hotel. You’ll almost feel like you’re staying in someone’s home… someone with an amazing home near Venice Beach. The house itself dates back to 1911 and has been beautifully restored.
1906 Lodge, a Four Sisters Inn, Coronado
Just like the name suggests, this beautiful B&B was built in 1906. Its location is perfect: It’s one block to the main street attractions of Coronado, two blocks from the beach, and two blocks from the notorious Hotel Del Coronado. In addition to their daily breakfast, you’ll be treated to afternoon refreshments in the courtyard here.
Scopa at the Sea, Crescent City
Scopa at the Sea overlooks North Pebble Beach, offering a truly relaxing respite from the real world. The charming home has three suites for guest lodging and has a full-service concierge on staff who will help make your trip the best it can be.
Ocean Beach Bed & Breakfast, San Francisco
When you stay at Ocean Beach B&B, you’re getting the best of both worlds. Not only is it close to all the fun San Francisco has to offer, but it’s located mere minutes from the Pacific Ocean. Each reservation comes with a daily continental breakfast and freshly baked cookies each afternoon.
Channel Road Inn, a Four Sisters Inn, Santa Monica
Several travel magazines have called this Santa Monica gem a top bed and breakfast in the Los Angeles area, and for good reason. The rooms at Channel Road Inn offer glimpses of the ocean, jetted tubs and fireplaces, and the complimentary breakfast and afternoon wine will leave you feeling right at home.
Beach Hut Bed & Breakfast, San Diego
If you think this pool looks inviting, wait until you retreat to your room at this Mission Bay Park B&B. TripAdvisor has rated the Beach Hut the top bed and breakfast in San Diego, and it seems to be very deserving of the title.
Bay Hill Bed & Breakfast, Bodega Bay
A perfect relaxing getaway from the San Francisco Bay Area is Bodega Bay. The Bay Hill Mansion is a luxurious B&B in Sonoma County. Close to vineyards and beaches, this spot is hard to beat!
