The Babbling Brook Inn is a romantic oasis within the vibrant beach-side community of Santa Cruz, California. Originally built as a corn grist mill in 1796, it has seen days as a tannery, a silent movie set and restaurant before its current incarnation as a bed and breakfast. The Babbling Brook Inn is also a favorite among University of California Santa Cruz students and their families due to our convenient proximity, just 3.5 miles away.
Nestled among the pine and redwood trees, the Babbling Brook Inn enjoys a unique charm, in keeping with the eclectic Santa Cruz community. Our guest rooms are decorated after a rustic French country style and accented with the artwork of renowned painters and poets such as Monet, Renoir and Tennyson. Peaceful and private, all guest rooms offer luxurious featherbeds, fireplaces, and delightful views of the gardens and brook.
