While I agree that the setting is stunning and I don't mind the funkiness, it was the little things that really bothered me. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating, but seemed to have no training at all in basic serving. In four meals, not once did the bus boys or servers serve or pick up from the correct...

Dear Linda, Thank you for the feedback. I am sorry. It is unacceptable and we are repeating some very basic training this week. The location of the tables does not always allow us to clear from the right but that should not be an issue. Looking forward to your return visit! Best, Julian More

Very remote location with wonderful views. We very much enjoyed walking the trails around the grounds- such a scenic and peaceful place! Although the hotel is older and could use some updates it is very comfortable and relaxing. We ate at the restaurant many times and the food and service were consistently good. We will definitely return to this place... More

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.
