Yes home made bread pudding with hand picked local berries for breakfast, wonderful. OK so I guess I should start by saying how wonderful the views are overlooking the Ocean, the convenience to walk a hundred yards to the quay, the terrific jacuzzi, the ever so friendly couple running the hotel...but that break pudding is awesome.

We had the most amazing view from our room. Most of our time in Point Arena was spent enjoying the view from our balcony. Though wifi is offered, it doesn't work from the rooms. So if you want to be off the grid, this is the place to be. Everyone in this inn and the community itself were very friendly.... More

My husband and I stayed in July in a room with a comfy queen poster bed, big jacuzzi tub, fireplace, ocean view, balcony, microwave and refrig. The managers and staff were very friendly. Every detail is provided for a pleasant and romantic gettaway, from tea candles near the tub to ice cubes in the refrig. The free self-serve breakfast was... More

Lovely little inn in a cute town. Spacious rooms and the innkeepers were accommodating with our late check-in. Breakfast was just what we needed to start the day. The innkeepers were wonderful. I wish we had more time in the area. We had the partial ocean view room and it was plenty of ocean!

We had room 100 - which is not one of their ocean views and is their least expensive. The bed was fine, and the room basic and functional. Staff was friendly and helpful. The property is adjacent to a great public area on the bluff overlooking the ocean. We hiked this for a couple of miles in the fog -... More

A gem of a hotel hidden in a beautiful location. The hotel is located in a fairly remote cove on route 1 but has a good choice of places to eat within walking distance. The rooms were clean and comfortable with lovely antique furnishings. The bathroom was impressive to say the least. The onsuite was fully equipped with shower and... More

The location is beautiful, and the bed is super comfy. It was nice to have both the jacuzzi tub and a shower, and a vanity outside of the lavatory. As the location is remote, it was pleasant to have a modest selection of wines to choose from in the lobby. There's a lovely garden with a fountain. It's a little... More

Fantastic ocean views, clean well maintained rooms. We have stayed here three times and have never had any noise problems, as one reviewer reported. Rooms are fairly small and most of them have queen beds, rather than kings. Also no wi-fi in the rooms, and your cell phone probably won't have much of a signal here. Restaurant, bakery and pizzeria... More

We did stay at this hotel just for one night. It does worth the $$ we spent. Even partial ocean view is breathtaking! Hot private Jacuzzi adds up a lot to the romantic atmosphere.

Thanks for your review Iliana! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. You make a valid point with regard to the furnishings in the room being a little dated. As we have mentioned previously in other responses, we are in the process of renovating and will take a little while to implement these positive changes. We hope... More
