The area is gorgeous but pretty remote I don't recall a spa. The hotel has amazing views and wonderful fire pits along the beach area.

Ca I plug in my Tesla overnight?
I did not see a clearly marked charging station but I would call to ask. The area is rather rural and it is quite a distance between towns as you go north.

"The rooms with the ocean view are great -- in a separate building right on the bluff."
"Don't leave it too late in the day to check-in. Arrive as early as you can to get the most of the site."
"Ocean views, close to ocean, fire starters & logs available from front desk"
"you do not have to be on top of the water to see it, Rooms back a couple of hundred yards from the water are available."
"Room 279 is a great room, and $100 a night cheaper than an ocean front room, a little bit smaller balcony than others"
