Annette was very hospitable, the breakfast was good. There is even a short nature walk behind the Inn that leads to a cliffside viewing of the rocky Pacific where there were many sea lions laying around and a pod of either dolphins or small whales swimming close to the rocks and sea lions. There are bikes available if you want... More

Beautiful, comfortable rooms with every amenity. Great location for hiking, dining, and the beach. I can't say enough about the attentive service and the fresh, innovative food. The evening wine...

We had to cancel our visit. (It would have been our second trip here.) The cancellation policy on our reservation says we MUST get a cancellation number from the inn keeper or the cancellation is not valid. When I asked the innkeeper over the phone for one, he argued with me that it was unnecessary. I read him the document... More

Have stayed here a number of times over the past 10 years. Everything is beautiful and serene without being overdone -- grounds, public areas, rooms. Great owner and staff, good wine at wine hour, wonderful breakfast. A great place to relax, read, unwind.

I hate to write a negative review of this place, but my experiences have led to that. A couple of hours before check out, housekeeping entered our room while we were inside. While it was an honest mistake, this was frustrating because: 1. the do not disturb sign was on the door 2. we had not checked out, and it... More

Dear Andrew, You told us several times that you would be leaving early, and we even packed you a breakfast to go. Given that you requested an early checkout and you left your door unlocked, the housekeeper thought the room had been vacated.
