My boyfriend and I are used to the busy city like and wanted to getaway to a quiet place. After further research, we ended up picking the Spyglass Inn for 4 nights (6/29/16 - 7/3/16). While, this was the second time visiting the Avenue of the Giant area, it was our first time staying at the Spyglass Inn. The property was very clean and modern, with all of the amenities to make us feel right at home. The fully equipped kitchen allowed us to cook and enjoy the ocean view right from the living room. The view from the patio, along with the ocean sound was truly an amazing experience. We enjoyed the cool breeze, sunrise and sunset each day-- felt like paradise! The hosts, Richard and Margaret were very accommodating, offering their kitchen to us and anything else that we needed to help our stay to be more comfotable. In addition to the ocean view, we walked to the black sand beach nearby and enjoyed the ocean even more.
Just a few tips... because the location is in the mountains, cell phone reception is limited. However, for cell phones that have WIFI calling enabled, the device will work just fine. There are limited restaurants and stores, so come prepare with your food, etc. other than that, this place is a hidden gem. Absolutely gorgeous-- refer to picture taken from the patio.
