Hotel Policies



Please be aware that our Inn is comprised of two separate, former residences built on the side of a steep slope. There is a flight of stairs at the entrance to both the Casa Blanca and the Casa Rosa .  Inside each residence is a flight of stairs between floors.  Because of our limited number of bedrooms and the age of our buildings we are not subject to federal laws regarding handicap access and it would not be reasonably possible to meet those requirements.

We do not allow pets inside the Inn. If you must travel with pets we recommend these three excellent boarding places in Topanga: CANYON ANIMAL CARE,  TOPANGA PET RESORT and  CANYON VIEW RANCH. Your pets can have their own vacation. Dogs are not allowed in Topanga State Park and many other parks and beaches in the Santa Monica Mountains. Park rangers patrol the trails and issue citations to violators. It is not safe to leave your small pets outside and unattended in Topanga due to the presence of coyotes, bobcats, rattlesnakes, hawks, owls and the occasional mountain lion.


Although we are not subject to the Americans with Disabilities Act, Title III, because of our limited size, we are very well versed in the law and keep a copy of the ADA at the Inn. Service animals are limited, by law, to dogs and miniature horses. We can accommodate service dogs, but not miniature horses. We strongly support the legitimate use of service dogs in designated rooms that will be most safe, convenient and comfortable for you and your dog. You must let us know at the time of your reservation about your service dog, to make sure a designated room is available. You and your animal will have the use of the common areas. Please, do not arrive with a service dog without prior notification to us.

It is against the law in California to try to represent a pet as a service animal. See CALIFORNIA PENAL CODE SECTION 365.7


Smoking is not allowed anywhere inside the buildings of the Inn. You may smoke outside on the upstairs deck of the Casa Blanca or the upstairs deck of the Casa Rosa, where we provide ash trays. You must be considerate when other non smoking guests are present. You must insure that your smoking device is well out before leaving the area due to brush fire danger. We are surrounded by highly flammable native chaparral and grass.


No use of controlled substances, including marijuana, medical or otherwise as designated by Federal Law is allowed on our premises. You will be subject to immediate eviction by an officer of the law.

It is against the law to smoke in the outdoor public parks in Los Angeles.

No smoking is allowed in Topanga State Park.
