Went here for a nice getaway with my husband, lovely rooms, lovely place. Got a bottle of wine. View is AMAZING! Maintanance could use some TLC. Bed was a bit wobbily. Tub in the room awesome, jets very noicy. Breakfast was poor.

Reviewed 29 June 2016

We had a large room with private deck and fabulous view of the ocean. The room was very comfortable - equipped with jacuzzi tub and fireplace - and we had two of the BEST night's sleep ever! Would have loved to have stayed longer!

We loved every minute we spent here! Very clean and large room, love the touch of home feel that it had. Loved both the fireplace and the jacuzzi tub. Very romantic and tucked away. Would recommend this little high away to anyone honeymooning or just thinking of getting away. Nice and relaxing! We will stay here again...

This time we were a bit disappointed as the place was showing its age...the room was great, the bed was comfortable but the place was showing its age, that was a bit of a let down...but the stafff were terrific, Marisa...

Our room was very nice and you could hear the waves from our deck but definitely not pet friendly. We were given a room on the 2nd floor and I had to carry my Chi-Weenie up and down the open steps. For a fee of $25 per dog you would expect an area in which to walk them but the...

We have three rooms that ARE designated Pet Friendly. Most pets can walk up the few stairs leading to the room. We have a path, of which, you were given a gate code that you can take your pet for a walk and to "do their business" on. The path is a gorgeous place to view the ocean that is...

We meandered our way up the coast on highway 1 to Pt. Arena and thoroughly enjoyed staying in this remote cove. The Inn sits on the hillside overlooking the picture perfect cove with an active working pier. Our room was well appointed with king bed, fireplace and jacuzzi tub and it was private enough that you could leave the door...

Our room was comfortable and well-appointed, and we especially enjoyed sitting on the private deck with a cocktail and interesting views. We liked the location because of its proximity to the lighthouse and beaches. We're going back next month for a longer stay, can't wait!
