How to Make Your Home Feel Like Your Favorite B&B
Part of the joy of staying in a swanky boutique hotel or bed and breakfast inn is all of the pampering amenities: fluffy pillows, soft linens, cozy robes, and deliciously-scented toiletries. While travel is out for the time being and we’re all going a little stir-crazy, you can make your home feel more like a vacation with luxurious sheets, pillows, accessories, and more from your favorite inn’s online gift shop.
The historic Bancroft Hotel is a tranquil retreat just a stone’s throw from U.C. Berkeley and is one of the greenest hotels in town. The guest rooms showcase an array of luxurious eco-friendly products, many of which are available for purchase in the inn’s online gift shop. The shop features organic cotton sheets from Coyuchi, soft and absorbent bamboo/organic cotton-blended towels from Nadina, and three types of pillows, including the organic kapok fill pillow. The pillows are made from the silky fibers of the kapok tree, which is soft like down, but with none of the allergens from down. To explore the offerings, visit the inn’s Green Story page.
Nestled in charming downtown Cambria, the Olallieberry Inn is housed inside a historic home built in 1865. While elements of the décor are authentic to the period, guest room amenities like the linens are luxuriously modern. With a silky-smooth finish, the inn’s micro-fiber sheets are equivalent to 600 thread-count cotton, but are quick drying and do not require ironing. They feel like silk, but wear like steel, and are possibly the best sheets you’ll ever sleep on. The sheets, along with the inn’s private label bath and body products, cookbook, and bags of housemade granola, are available for purchase from the inn’s gift shop by calling 805-927-3222.

Items include beautifully packaged lavender bath salts, soaps, shower gels, and candles made with Sonoma lavender, wine grape-inspired jewelry made from glass beads and pearls, hand-thrown ceramic coffee mugs, the inn’s cookbook, and the ever-popular and ever-so-soft Comphy Company sheet sets. The sheet sets are available in seven different colors and three different sizes. To browse the selections, visit the inn’s website.
Just minutes from downtown Napa, Candlelight Inn is a grand English-Tudor-style bed and breakfast inn nestled beneath the redwoods on an acre of well-tended gardens with a swimming pool.

While the attractions are temporarily closed, you can indulge with the hotel’s curated collection of online gift items that reflect the spirit of the destination.
