Stanford Inn by the Sea ~ Featured on CABBI.com
Perched on a hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean, The Stanford Inn by the Sea is a luxurious eco-friendly haven for pets and humans alike. According to Sunset Magazine, the inn “tops the list of best dog-friendly vacations.” Stanford Inn was one of the first B&Bs in California to welcome pets nearly 40 years ago. In that time, it has hosted a variety of non-human visitors: dogs and cats as well as iguanas, parrots, pot belly pigs, and even a tortoise. There are no weight or breed restrictions. Pets are welcome in nearly all of the inn’s facilities with the exception of the pool and the dining room, but guests can choose to dine with their dogs in the lobby. The innkeepers will happily accommodate special food requests and provide information on local veterinary services and pet sitters. Upon check-in, pets are greeted with a handmade, digestion-friendly treat, stainless steel food and water dishes, waste bags, and dog sheets to protect furniture and bedding. There is a $45.00 charge per stay for the first pet; additional pets are $22.50.
