To me, no place is more breathtaking than the North Coast of California. That's why it's so disappointing to have had such a bad experience with the Timber Cove, and to find out where it's headed. Unlike some of the other posts I've seen, I wasn't put off by the fact that the Timber Cove is a bit funky... We... More

This is necessary and will enable us to restore Timber Cove Inn to it's previous glory. Additionally it will allow us to provide our guests with the amenities,... More

My adult daughter and I spent three nights at Timber Cove Inn the last weekend in March and had such a wonderful time. Breathtaking view of the ocean and the cove, with many hiking trails around the property. We stayed in a cove view room which was ideal. The cool March evenings and mornings were offset by the lovely free-standing... More

You come in and you feel very welcomed. In the normal rooms sea view, second floor, the beds are on a second plateau and very comfortable. The room is very cozy. We had very good weather and we slept the windows wide opened (well please keep the door to the balcony closed as a racoon visited us in the night).... More

We were here over 20 years ago, and little has changed, although my wife was disappointed the staff no longer feeds the large resident raccoon clan. This is probably for the best. (Not feeding them I mean, not the disappointment part.) Dramatic main building, pedestrian architecture otherwise in weathered wood. The star here is the coastline. Get a second-floor ocean... More

Excellent restaurant on site, great rooms - ours had a gas fireplace - and miles of beachfront to wander along and watch the waves. Not much to do other than unwind and take in the stars at night. Perfect for a break from the city life.

After a long drive, we headed to our nice ocean view room and immediately had to "upgrade" to a "not ocean view" to get a bath tub, a core part of any experience for my wife. Dinner view was nice and the staff was very friendly, but the food was only mediocre. With nothing to do for 30 minutes in... More

Some of my fondest memories will remain here. The reviews regarding the "rustic decor" should be ignored. It was a very romantic and lovely room. We slept with the fire place on and the door open to hear the ocean. The views were incredible and every one of the staff was absolutely lovely. I will never forget my anniversary spent... More

Visited Timber Cove Inn for a two day getaway. Room 310 (?) was lower level, has a small porch from which to watch the sunset. Two queen beds were comfortable. Shower with view of the beach. Fireplace provided great heat for the room. It is an isolated location. About 30 minutes north of Bodega Bay, and 25 minutes south of... More

The hotel itself is reminiscent of those 1920's lodges that grace many of our National Parks in the West: absolutely beautiful! The location? Unparalleled, really, you can't do any better. Fort Ross (a 18th Century Russian fort) is next door, absolutely worth the visit. We chose Ocean View Rooms (in the 200's) and they are worth every penny (approx. $250).... More
