Stanford Inn by the Sea
has been welcoming pets for almost 40 years—it was, in fact, one of the first B&Bs in California to do so. Innkeepers Joan and Jeff Stanford know that four-legged family members deserve care and attention, and they cater to canines accordingly. In pet-friendly guest rooms
, water and food bowls are provided along with pick-up bags, house-made organic treats and covers to protect furniture and bedding.
Outside the inn, leashed dogs and their people can roam the 10-acre property to enjoy the views, explore the organic gardens (please don’t let your male raise a leg on the produce!) and get up close up and personal with horses, miniature donkeys, llamas and other critters. Waste stations with bags and trash receptacles are provided throughout the property.
While dogs are not to be left unattended in guest rooms, it’s (almost) always cool on the coast, so it’s OK for them to take a break in your vehicle with the windows cracked while you take a dip in the heated indoor pool or enjoy a massage at the spa.
Need something extra, as in veterinary services, pet sitters or specialty foods? Just ask, and the inn will provide.
