Cliff Crest Bed and Breakfast Inn is an original 1887 Queen Anne Victorian. The first owner was former California Lieutenant Governor William Jeter. He added the Solarium where you will be served your delicious home-made breakfast with view to the ocean. The Solarium is decorated with stained glass windows dating to 1902 – probably with the first Tiffany glass on the West Coast. Lt. Gov. Jeter married a local Santa Cruzan girl Jenny Bliss and built “Jenny’s Room” for her which is now among the guest rooms. William Jeter and Jenny Bliss were instrumental in preserving the old-growth coast redwood grove in Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, where you will find a specially labeled “Jeter” tree. Late into life, Jenny could be seen riding her horse-drawn carriage into town.
Cliff Crest’s garden, featuring several California redwoods, was designed by Scottish horticulturist John McLaren who was superintendent of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park for 53 years. Our guests now enjoy the garden which also boasts bamboo as well as green-thumbed innkeeper Adriana’s gorgeous flowers, roses and birds of paradise just to name a few.
