    Dietary Restrictions

    Guests on special diets generally find many items in our buffet that are suitable to their needs. However, due to the small size of our inn and kitchen, we cannot accommodate all dietary requests (such as gluten-free, vegan, no nuts, etc.). If you are on a restricted diet, you are welcome to store a small bag of your own foods in our refrigerator.

    You're Invited

    Join us for a complimentary glass of wine, plus cheeses, and savory hors d’oeuvres each afternoon. It’s the perfect way to relax and celebrate after a day of sightseeing. Plus, don’t forget about our cookies! Cookies are a Four Sisters Inns tradition – every day by 3 pm, you’ll find complimentary, freshly baked cookies, available near the the lobby area. We bake something different every day, so you never know which sweet treat awaits.

    Four Sisters Inns' The Kitchen Cookbook

    Our innkeepers are often asked for recipes, which is why we began compiling favorites in our own cookbook many years ago. Now in its 6th edition, The Kitchen at Four Sisters Inns is available at your favorite inn, as well as here on our website, for $15.95. This updated version includes more than 90 recipes from our innkeepers, the same dishes our guests enjoy when they stay with us. Recipes are divided into five categories: Breakfast Sweets, Breakfast Dishes, Cookies, Tea Time Sweets and Tea Time Savories. The cookbook has a handy easel stand design; just pop it open and you’re ready to whip up a batch of Blueberry Lemon Muffins.

    Guests can either purchase a cookbook during their stay or by visting our Gift page on our website.

  • About Santa Monica

    Known for its celebrity locals, environmental sensitivity and healthy lifestyles, Santa Monica is the end destination of US Route 66 -- the proverbial pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Want to combine a trip to a major metropolis with a trip to the beach? Zero in on Santa Monica. Just a few miles west of Los Angeles, this seaside getaway offers all the surf and sand you need, with the cultural offerings of one of the world’s most exciting cities as a backdrop.

    Of course, once you’re in Santa Monica, you might just decide to stay put, there is so much to see and do. The Santa Monica Pier includes an over-water amusement park and aquarium, as well as the 1922 Looff Hippodrome Carousel, a National Historic Landmark. There are excellent shopping and dining options on leafy Montana Avenue and on Main Street, which hosts a weekly farmers market just two blocks from the ocean. Closed to vehicular traffic, the Third Street Promenade is where you’ll find street performers, movie theaters and open-air cafes, and the Ocean Park neighborhood will please any art lover with a plethora of galleries and creative shops.

    Saturday mornings, join a guide from the Santa Monica Conservancy for an interesting architectural walking tour of the downtown area.
