My husband and I hiked the coastal trail from the CGHI to the lighthouse. In a word - SPECTACULAR!! We've traveled to many parts of the world, and we ourselves live on the bluffs of Solana Beach (San Diego), but this coastal hike is over 12 miles of uninterrupted, unspoiled, undeveloped land/oceanscape. Mia is a great host. She provided a... More

Kevin and Mia helped us out in many ways.. they were flexible about our re-scheduling a visit (we did give them lots of notice!) and they made us two restaurant reservations. They were very good hosts... suggestions about things to do, history of the area, great full-on breakfasts and they've done a wonderful renovation job of the inn. There are... More

This is nothing like any other inn we have stayed at. The property is historic -- age is not the thing that makes it interesting (we have stayed in much older inns), but its former life as a Coast Guard life saving station was certainly unique and I got a kick out of that. We booked the Cypress Cottage on... More

Can't say enough about this place. Location, service, value, gourmet breakfast, history... you name it it is here. Their glutton free options were wonderful. The rooms are quaint and well done. Internet is an issue and AT&T is no where to be found. Just unplug and relax a couple days - it'll do you some good. Walk down to the... More

We stayed for 6 fantastic nights during September and will certainly stay again. We had a whole Cottage to ourselves, which was great. The bed was great, the service fab and the breakfasts some of the best we've ever had. Kevin and Mia helped to make our stay very special - suggesting restaurants on day 1 and even lending us...

We stayed here for three nights in early October in the Boathouse cottage. It is a lovely one bedroom cottage with an extra room with a table, chair, wood stove and large tub. Outside, there is a small terrace with a table and two chairs. You have a lovely view of the ocean and pier from the windows. The queen... More

This was our second visit to the Coast Guard House Historic Inn. We first visited 15 years ago, and we enjoyed it then. I had always wanted to return, and we were finally able to for an anniversary weekend. The house has a wonderful feel, and quite a history in the Point Arena area. I found a photograph in the...

This was our third and last over night stop on our drive from Portland, OR to San Francisco. Our son (17) was happy to have his own room just sharing the bathroom. We were well adviced to just pop down to the harbor restaurant (2 min walk), great meal with fresh crab! Breakfast (including a hot dish) was equally good... More

My husband and I stayed here for the weekend to celebrate our 3rd anniversary. We stayed in the Boathouse cottage and had a wonderful view of the cove from our room and patio. It was very quiet here, hardly saw or heard the other guests (or the inn keepers for that matter). My husband tends to be rather boisterous, and... More

This property was a pleasant surprise after finding it on the internet and making a last minute reservation online. Our room, Flag, was very nice and quite comfortable although there's no shower - only a hand held shower in an old fashioned tub which was a bit awkward. Full breakfast is served - at 9am so you have to plan... More
