"Thank you Earl and Linda for your wonderful hospitality. We enjoyed every minute of our stay in San Diego. Our ride along the coast from Encinitas to Torry Pines was breath taking. We were very excited to be able to ride up with the California tour in Escondido with Lance Armstrong. We also appreciated your suggestion of restaurants - Le Papagayos and The Beach House, wonderful food".

-- Bob and Shelegh

"I came down for a medical conference and I found this restful place on the net,  spent four days and three nights. Well worth the cost. A very comfortable room.  Shower was great with both heads, and the tub for two was perfect. The breakfasts were good and filling. The innkeepers made for great company. We really enjoyed our stay and we will be back for the next conference and stay."

-- Bob and Alison
"This room was donated to help raise money for our school at a silent auction. My husband and I won with the highest bid. Little did we know how wonderfull the place would be. Even better was the company and the wonderful friendships and conversation that was shared around the breakfast table. Thank you for being wonderful people."
