Our Story

We are former Silicon Valley Executives turned Bed and Breakfast proprietors, moving at a (LOT!) slower pace, but still with a customer centered focus and attention to detail.

We were very lucky to be at the right place at the right time.  That added to a ton of work and a start-up gone public and we found ourselves having a new options for the direction of our lives. Having spent years going full-throttle had taken its toll.  We were burnt out and we decided we would step away from the craziness for a while.

We decided to retreat to our hilltop home and focus on all aspects of our health – mind, body, and spirit.  It’s been a few years and are now feeling healthy, energized and well…Joyfull!   We would like to share what we’ve learned on our journey so far so we decided to open our home to overnight and event guests.

Mumford Bed and Breakfast, unlike other B&B’s or hotels is not open 24/7.  Our model is more like the AirBnB model.  Join our mailing list for our current availability for reservations and upcoming special events.

Some of our events include acoustic music, nutrition & cooking classes, T’ai Chi Chih & Meditation retreats, other healing practices, etc.  Events are usually small in size, 20 – 50 guests.

We are located in the San Francisco Bay Area, nestled in the hills of Castro Valley. Hidden away, but still close to the hustle and bustle. Many of our guests live in the Bay Area and just need a place close by to go to and unwind. Somewhere close enough that it isn’t a chore to get to.

Our patrons have earned their time off and when they are here they can leave their cares behind.

Schedule a massage, take a stroll in our lovely California Natives garden or on our trails weaving through the property, enjoy live music or one of our other events on premise or enjoy an evening in the City before returning to your oasis.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
