We recently had the pleasure of staying in the Seal Cove Inn. It was a gorgeous place! Everything was very clean and had a wonderfully warm and cozy feel. The gardens are beautiful and we very much enjoyed watching the bunnies and birds run around them in the morning. Walk out the back and you find the trail that leads... More

What a gorgeous place! But not just pretty to look at, the service and management is top-drawer, too. I didn't know how intimate and comfortable it would be, even from reading the reviews.

We stayed in a ‘Garden Room’ which had doors leading straight out into the garden where we enjoyed walks along the garden paths. A gate at the end of a short path to the left of the property leads to woodland with more enjoyable trails. To the left of the wood trail are steps (more than 90) which lead down... More

As a frequent traveler (and a hospitality professional) I admittedly had high hopes when we booked this inn as a book-end to an intense business trip in wine country. I simply wanted a place near the ocean where my husband and I could relax. First, the positives: the property has been beautifully renovated. The bed was extremely comfortable and the... More
