All About The Inn
Welcome to the Nantucket Whale Inn
We invite you to stay with us in Half Moon Bay’s incredible boutique Bed and Breakfast Inn which opened in May 2015. Inspired by the grand homes on Nantucket Island, the Nantucket Whale Inn offers guests a relaxing and luxurious stay in our gorgeous coastal town, just 20 miles from San Francisco. We are known for our special balance of friendly, outstanding service and absolute respect for your privacy during your stay.
Conveniently located on the quiet end of Main Street in the charming and historic village of Half Moon Bay, guests can plan their visit to meet a variety of needs. For those wishing to simply relax and not drive, the Nantucket Whale Inn is the perfect place. Enjoy reading a great book in your room, in the living room or outside in the garden. Walk to the shops, the beach and the many fine restaurants and eateries nearby.
Or, for those who have come to explore the coast, make the Inn your home during your stay. The Coastside offers so many things to do – choose from over 20 beaches, hike for miles through the giant redwood forests only a few miles from the Inn or along the bluffs above the sea. Contact us about electric bike rentals and bike the California Coastal Trail along the shoreline, go horseback riding on the beach, kayak or paddle board in the harbor, visit Harley Farms - a goat farm where fine goat cheese is made. Taste local wines and micro brews, explore the tide pools with seals basking in the sun at the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve or tour and picnic at Filoli - one of America’s architectural treasures with lush gardens. After your adventures, relax in the privacy of the Inn where the owners have oil paintings and other original artwork displayed. Some of the colorful plein air pieces were painted by the previous owner, Kathryn Ellis.
Enjoy our complimentary wine bar in the late afternoon/early evening. For a sublime experience, unwind in the garden, an outdoor living room, as the cool evening air rolls in and get warm by the fire table. Watch the numerous birds and butterflies as the sun begins to set. After a wonderful dinner out, enjoy a great night’s sleep in one of our very comfortable guest rooms. In the morning, savor our fair trade organic coffee, teas, cider, hot chocolate and delicious breakfasts.
