What a charming bed & breakfast. Nancy, the owner, was a great hostess. Her breakfasts were delicious & she certainly was helpful guiding us to great restaurants. The rooms were very clean & well appointed. We would certainly stay there again the next time we are in that area.

Why would any couple want to stay in a noisy resort or hotel when they can spend their nights sleeping in a feather bed, in peace and quiet? And then, wake up and have a beautiful breakfast made for them? Not just a "continental" breakfast, but a real homemade one. And Nancy will prepare anything you request (practically, except for...

What a great place this is! Close to the village shops and restaurants; immaculately kept; friendly innkeeper... I could rapture for days and am only sorry we were there for just one night!

We stayed at the Pelican Cove Inn for three nights last week and it was outstanding. We stayed in the Newport room which is an octagonal shaped room near the front of the property and has a unique cathedral ceiling. Nancy, the innkeeper, was a joy and she makes breakfasts that are to die for! Each day breakfast was unique...

We spent 3 nights at Pelican Cove Inn during August 2013. Nancy, the owner of this charming Bed and Breakfast, ensured that we had a gracious, comfortable stay. This B&B is meticulously clean and has a bright, warm, welcoming feel. Be sure to check out the beautiful gardens during your stay! Upon arrival, we received a friendly welcome, a tour...

I can't say enough about this darling Bed and Breakfast. It is so cutely decorated and the breakfasts are amazing. Nancy is so sweet and helpful about things to do in the area. You can walk to the beach or to the little downtown section of this cute city in northern San Diego county. We stayed for 6 nights and...

We were in the Newport Room for two nights. Nancy was very friendly and helpful. The location is good in that it is just blocks to the main part of town as well as to the ocean so you can walk over for sunset. Breakfast was tasty and certainly a great place to rest your head the next time you...

Okay, not so secret now. This lovely B&B is my favorite place to stay when I return to my home town (sorry friends). I love the home like atmosphere with the in room fireplaces. You are greeted with a smile and feel right at home. I love Nancy's homemade breakfasts and afternoon cookies or snack. Another big bonus for this...

My wife, kids, and I just enjoyed a great two nights at Pelican Cove. My kids are 7 and 9 and both had a great time. Nancy is great with the kids, and provides a really nice and warm place.

The BF wanted to revisit his favorite spots in and near San Diego and found this lovely property north of the city still on the coast. The first night, after a big storm, we could hear the ocean from two blocks away and left the window open all night. When we opened the door, a gas fireplace awaited us (it...
