The Guest House Next Door

February 18, 2010 · 8 comments

We have a sweet little guest room in our place, but we can’t wait until we have overflow company that threatens to burst us at the seams.

We’d love to have a legitimate swim next door.


Half Moon Bay Lodge is a 3-minute walk from our place: down the driveway, around the fence, past Joe’s Diner (home of the $5.50 burger and fries… another post: stay tuned), and down their driveway.

We went over last week-end to have a look and snap some photos.


It’s beautifully appointed…


… with tiled walkways…


… and outdoor seating overlooking the HMB Golf Course.


There is a hot tub, surrounded by flower tubs: excellent for soaking cold-weary bones.


The view from the ground floor rooms are equally verdant…


… with bathrooms that are sweet, clean, and well-appointed.

Plus, their toilets don’t run. (Ours are on the “to-do” list.)


There is the always popular extra sink and in-room coffee maker.

NEVER, EVER, discount the value of the in-room coffee maker.


So, here in California, spring has sprung, the grass has riz…


I wonder where the company is?

Hey Sally, How about pool privileges for the photographers extraordinaires? 🙂

Gail, you are a friend extraordinaire!

And Sally, um, we’d love to go for a quiet swim once in a while when the pool’s not busy. 🙂

Hi Sally,
You’re most welcome! Delighted that the HMB Lodge is so convenient, well-maintained and reasonably priced for our outta-towners.

Can’t wait to be the first guests in your guest room – only 2 1/2 weeks away.

Yup… come on down!

Mmmm, I could see myself at the lodge. I can see myself sitting in that hot tub. Nice pics Kas.

Yeah, so far, “imagine” is all we’ve done in the hot tub ourselves 🙂
