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

We had an Ocean view room and We saw whales one evening out our window. Dinner was good but I do wish when we made our reservation that we had done it for earlier in... 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

We came to Timber Cove with friends for a two day get-away-from-everything retreat and that's exactly what we got. We had nice rooms (301 and 303) with balconies and views of the ocean. The king beds were comfortable, although the waterproof mattress covers were a bit off-putting since they made crinkly noises and allowed the sheets to slip around too... More

Girlfriend and I stayed at Timber Cove in the beginning of February 2013. We spent a couple nights in a wonderfully cozy ground floor ocean view suite on the north end of the building. The room was well-appointed with wood burning stove/fireplace, natural rock formations in the room added a very nice rustic touch. The jacuzzi tub with ocean view... More

Our Irish band, The Pure Drops, has performed at Timber Cove many times over the years, and we just enjoyed another wonderful weekend playing melodies in this warm and intimate inn! Rustic yet elegant, the historic landmark building invites you with glowing lights and soaring beams, walls of glass, leaping fire pits, a tremendous central fire place, and delicious cocktails....
