Darrell and Karen Darling and the historic house’s Blue Plaque

The House and Family

The Darling House Bed & Breakfast Inn is a 1910 oceanside architectural masterpiece designed by William Weeks, the celebrated architect of Santa Cruz’s Coconut Grove and many other Northern California landmarks.

Lighted by the rising sun through beveled glass, Tiffany lamps and open hearths, and the grace of genuinely open hearts, the Darling House welcomes you into an experience of peaceful elegance.

Denise Darling, has taken over the reins from her parents Darrell and Karen.

After a quarter century of welcoming guests into their home the Darling couple passes the keys on to the next generation as Denise Darling takes over managing the beautiful Bed & Breakfast at the sea. Some traditions will remain, as warm greetings and a quiet retreat are paramount.
