What a wonderful place to stay. This beautiful home is just around the corner from our daughter and her family. We spent 1 night in the Merlot room. It is big, has a fireplace, very comfortable bed and robes in the closet. The bathroom was clean, roomy and a great shower. Breakfast in the morning is cooked fresh by Maria....

Five couples in total rented the rooms at this B&B. What a great find! Close to shopping, restaurants and fun things to do. Very welcoming! Nice wine in the evening. Our room had a balcony and the room was spacious and comfortable. (Chardonnay Room) We had a great time and look forward to returning!

The Atherton Inn is a purpose built BNB with only 5 rooms. We booked the 2 rooms at opposite ends upstairs in the back. One for my husband and me and one for my mother. Both rooms were spacious and had everything we needed including comfortable beds. Ours had a large terrace. Very quiet residential neighborhood but close to lots...

The facilities are grand and lovely. Our room, Zinfandel, had a large deck outside that was quite pleasant, particularly when it was warm. It was well-equipped with a comfortable bed, a large bathroom and shower, and wifi included. The breakfast was delicious and prepared carefully by nice folks. We had a car and were able to see relatives nearby as...

I stayed at the Atherton Inn for two nights recently and it was a wonderful experience. Anne, the innkeeper, was very warm and welcoming and made sure I had everything I needed. All five rooms are on the second floor, but there is an elevator in addition to the spectacular curving staircase. The rooms are extremely spacious, all with step-in...

What a wonderful place this is.. The house is sheer luxury at a very competitive price, Ann makes all very welcome and is a perfect host. We both had a great stay and will certainly go back again. Whether you're on business or pleasure it's a good base for seeing San Francisco,but far enough out of town to be cosy...

Giving a dinner speech at The Village Pub in Woodside, Atherton Inn B&B was the perfect choice since it is the closest lodging to the pub and came highly recommended. First, the welcome was warm and friendly. Mini muffins warm from the oven were just placed on the counter. Yummy! Annie, a nice gal from Scotland showed me around the...

My wife and I wanted to find a place to stay near Redwood City that was away from the busy traffic areas, closer to I-280, and near Canada College where we were visiting. The Inn fit the bill perfectly---a quiet location in a residential area, a well maintained 5 bedroom facility that was built specifically to be a B &...

I had such high hopes for the Atherton Inn. I love going to B&B's and always have a wonderful time. There is a certain friendliness and level of caring that most innkeepers have. This was not my experience at the Atherton Inn. From the welcome to the checkout, this place was cold and impersonal. Instead of going just a little...

We just returned from a 4-day stay at Atherton Inn B&B and had a wonderful time. The purpose of our trip was a combination of business in Silicon Valley and the pleasure of visiting some area gardens. Located in a quiet upscale neighborhood this lovely estate home was built to accommodate travelers with 5 beautiful 2nd story rooms accessible by...
