We stopped on our way to Mendocino after leaving SFO. There were 8 family members (3 generations) spending New Year's weekend on the ocean. ALL rooms were well done and very up to date. The fire-ring overlooking the ocean was very welcoming that evening and we and other guests chatted for an hour or so. Inside the bar and restaurant...

Dear Bob, Thank you so much for taking the time to review us and for your kind and outstanding rating of the newly re-invented Timber Cove.

Modern rooms with minimalist Scandinavian designs and extremely comfortable beds. Loved the in-room amenities of pour-over filter coffee and record players (with a lending library of records in the lobby). Ocean View rooms have sweeping views of the Pacific and the cliffs below. Loved the outdoor areas with fire pits, ping pong, pool, and foosball, plus the bar and lounge...

New owners are making a huge improvement to Timber Cove. We recently went in for a meal at Timber Cove and were very pleased with our meals. In fact we ended up having 4 meals before our week stay in Gualala was over. First, the breakfast, the frittata was cooked a la minute, the vegetables were fresh and colorful and...

Wow!! I don't have the words. This place is amazing and secluded. The restaurant has a fantastic view, a culinary delight and perfect for that special someone.

Have stayed at Timber Cove 3 consecutive years...once had a welcoming feel, that has now been replaced with pretentious, Euro spa atmosphere. Possibly going for a chef based foodie experience- we were lost on the $400 New Years Eve pre defined menu. Poor marketing and communication. Thank you Boon in Guerneville for taking care of us!!!!

Nice place but without much to do and all the heaters outside all off was tough to do much. The menu really lacks of basic selections. Not everyone can eat seafood and even what was listed didn't resemble any high end restaurant we've been to. Where's a real lounge menu ? Where's a steak and lobster platter ? Where's crab...

I've been making the trip out to the Timber Cove for better than 15 years and always found its old beachcomber charm in perfect sync with the central coast ambiance: cozy, romantic, fun...a little quirky (especially with its distinctive totem). Having just returned from experiencing the (as they prefer saying) 'restored' Timber Cove, the effort has not been misplaced. While...

This is a very nice hotel in an out-of-this-world location. Many of the rooms have been recently refurbished and the work continues (though it is hardly noticeable to those staying there.)
