My husband and I recently spent two nights at Stanford Inn, and we enjoyed every minute. Our room was on the second floor, and the balcony overlooked the beautiful grounds and ocean. The decor and ambiance were very rustic and homey. We loved being able...More

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Standford Inn last summer, and returned with a couple of friends in early July this year. We could not have been more satisfied, and I'm the only vegetarian of the four people. The food, the service, the drinks,...More
