Very original previous keepers' quarters with historical flair, throwback to the 70s, differently sized units, we staid in the ones closest to the lighthouse, functional kitchen with no dishwasher, large dining room living room area comfy, bathrooms were ok. Fantastic location at the coast, view over the cliffs, convenient to explore the surrounding Mendonoma area. No room service, better for... More

We traveled to Point Arena just to stay at the lighthouse. The views from the front and back of the room were absolutely stunning. Our room had a woodstove and a full kitchen so it was nice to stay in with our group and cook dinner nightly. It's a great home base location if you are exploring the coast. Just... More

Wow! That about sums it up! My wife LOVES lighthouses. When we were searching for hotels on the coast this came up and we were amazed that this existed! Let me start by saying this is NOT a hotel. There is no maid service and no restaurant. The light house is about 2 miles off of Highway 1, and is... More

What a wonderful surprise to stay at Wharf Master inn. The room is very well put together. Fireplace , jacuzzi tub, balcony with a view of the ocean. Then add in tall pine trees on the hillside an you feel secluded from all the hustle of towns. Just a short walk to a nice restaurant an little gift shop. Mendicno... More

My fiance and I spent three nights in house #2. The place was actually larger than we needed, but we loved our stay. There was a birds nest just outside the back door. The seals were all over the rocks by the gazebo, and we watched a heron pull a mole right out of the ground in the back yard!... More

You will thank me when you see the Arena Lighthouse for yourself! Well worth a side trip if you're on Highway One between, say, Mendocino or Fort Bragg, and Jenner, while enjoying the Pacific Coast Highway through Northern California. Take note of the limited operating hours! Tour the Point Arena Lighthouse and Store:10:00 to 15:30 everyday in Winter, 16:30 between... More

We didn't stay in one of the rentals but we did visit the light house and museum and went on the lighthouse tour. He took the 144 steps to the top of the lighthouse, I didn't make it. But he took plenty of pictures to show me. Apparently this is the closet point to Hawaii. Another fact is, The air... More

We stayed one night at the Point Arena lighthouse. we stayed in the smallest room, and our door looked right out to the lighthouse. It was the Keeper's room. It was small, but very clean, and we had the best view. Our window looked out the beautiful ocean and our door was all glass and we woke up looking at... More

The 5 star review is for being able to stay in one of the most beautiful locations you can imagine. The lighthouse sits right out on the point and the the old keepers quarters which are the rental units are behind it. On one side are the Stornetta Public lands and Manchester State Park on the other. The location is... More

It was the best vacation my wife and I ever had. We spent 3 nights here and the staff thought of everything, we only needed to bring in our food for the 3 days and ourselves. We were able to see some whales swim by, the historical venue was perfect and the beautiful sunsets were to die for. Don't look... More
