This place was unreal. The grounds, view, cottages and RV parking were far beyond belief. Management and help were the BEST. Brady and his wife Jen whole own and operate the establishment were amazing. We would recommend and return, in a heart beat, Thanks for all you did to make us feel at home. Till we meet again.

This lovely spot with gorgeous views was a fantastic getaway! The owners are wonderful and very accommodating, and we woke up every morning to sea lions barking--doesn't get any cooler than that! It's a short drive to great breakfasts, and even better views where you can go down along the beach. The room was cozy and clean, and I highly... More

Wow what a pleasant stay this was. We had a 1 bedroom cabin with a bed in the large front room. The kitchen was Large and equipped to make it feel at home. That's important since I had to some cooking and nothing is better than feeling comfortable in your own kitchen. The most favorite thing I liked was the... More

Area is unbelievably beautiful. Owners are cool and very helpful - it's a young family's business. Cabins are clean and have everything you need including full kitchen and porch. It IS a cabin, so don't go looking for the ritz. If you are looking for a clean, simple place that you might fall in love with and come back to... More

Our family spent several days at this location in March and we were completely overwhelmed by the beauty and tranquility of place. it was a delightful experience in every respect. Our cabin was clean and spacious, with excellent maid service that kept it that way. The owners, Brady and Jen, bent over backward to make sure we had everything we... More

I stayed at View Crest Lodge with my family for 6 nights and it was wonderful. The cozy cottage we stayed in was perfect and comfortable for the entire length of the trip. Waking up in the morning, brewing a fresh cup of coffee to enjoy on the private front porch was a highlight every morning. It was a perfect,... More

A very nice, lovely, quiet place, with only the distant cries of sea lions to disturb the blessed silence. Washer and dryer on the premises - very helpful, as the hikes around the area can get muddy. The only caveat - what they advertise as a "two-bedroom cottage" is actually a cottage with one private bedroom, and a second bed... More

check-in was strange, stood outside the office, used the outside phone to call manager, as directed. Waited,......finally a man steps out, opens the door and checks us in. The cabin was okay. The bathroom needs deep cleaning. The bed was not comfortable, but better than sleeping in a tent, on the ground! Location was good for going to the Redwoods.

Cozy little cottage with wifi, a comfy bed, great shower pressure, a mini fridge and a desk to get some work done while away from the office. The room was equipped with a fireplace, but the weather was so nice I didn't need to use it. No restaurants within walking distance but Trinidad is a pretty quick drive that has... More

I loved my cozy 7A! Beautiful renovation and comfy bed too! Perfect getaway. The staff is hospitable and on top of everything and the grounds are beautiful. Had mini refrigerator, electric fireplace, couch and small kitchenette with sink and two flat screens and bedroom and big bathroom with great water pressure. I would love to escape there again!
