The house was lovingly restored in 1980 and has been completely upgraded over the years it has been used as the Inn. The Inn was expanded with the addition of the Hitchcock House next door in 1983. Both homes are comfortably furnished with antiques, Oriental rugs, colorful fabrics and wallpapers that capture the warm hospitality that is the trademark of the innkeepers themselves. All rooms have telephones and private baths, some with whirlpool tubs. Guests may relax and mingle in front of the inviting brick fireplace in the living room, on the covered front porch or on the back patio deck surrounded by flowers.
In the evening there is a hosted social hour where guests are invited to meet and enjoy wine and beverages. The original owners of the Inn (former schoolteachers and administrators) continue to operate the business, preparing breakfast or hosting the social hour.
The aroma of freshly-baked cookies, breads and coffeecakes frequently permeates the Inn.
The Old Yacht Club House offers 4 sunny guest rooms upstairs plus the Captain's Corner Room downstairs with its own private deck.
The Hitchcock House offers guest rooms on the ground level with private entrances. These rooms are named after the Innkeeper's families and are highlighted with historic photos and memorabilia. Upstairs is a newly-created and remodeled suite, the Channel Islands Suite. A separate sitting room provides space for relaxing and enjoying the serenity of Santa Barbara. This room is a treat for honeymooners, anniversaries, birthdays or any occasion, for that matter!

Dining at the Inn is a memorable experience. Awaken in the morning to the smell of freshly-brewed coffee from a local coffee roaster. Enjoy a full gourmet breakfast individually prepared and served by the innkeepers in the dining room.

Dinner at the Inn on Saturday evenings is a tradition started in 1980. Our chef prepares a five-course prix fixe menu, which includes an appetizer, soup, salad, entrée and dessert. Guests gather for champagne and are then seated for the evening's fare. The entrée is typically fresh fish, the freshest and best available that day. Recipes such as Artichokes Athena, Salmon with raspberry beurre blanc sauce and Chocolate Cheesecake are often featured and may be found in the Chefs' cookbook. Dinner weekend packages feature two nights' lodging with the dinner included. Please inquire about the dinner schedule when making reservations.
