Make sure you ask for room 405 - it is the newly refurbished corner suite with freestanding bath tub. Absolutely beautiful room with breathtaking views of the Pacific - if you are looking to impress your other half, there can be few better hotels and rooms than this. It is more expensive than the other rooms but well worth it.... More

Recently stayed three nights at Timber Cove Inn. The location is remote (about 14 miles north of Jenner) but beautiful. The Inn overlooks the ocean and the grounds have a number of trails which enable one to explore the vicinity and go to the shore. Our room was large and comfortable with a fire - place and a spectacular ocean... More

Spent a portion of a long weekend at Timber Cove and really enjoyed the location. The venue is spectacular with gorgeous views out over the ocean. We were able to see whales from the room balcony. Had dinner at their restaurant which was good but not great (though the sunset and view was spectacular). We were in one of their... More

This place was a treasure! Absolutely gorgeous grounds, views, ocean! What more could you ask for. This place has a wonderful rustic charm and most rooms have fireplaces. We had a lovely cozy room with ocean view. Loved sleeping with door open listening to the crashing waves with a nice warm fire brewing inside the room. Plush warm robes were... More

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.
