I recently spent a weekend in this beautiful town with my family. We had a great time. Exploring the beaches, the walks, the forest...and the one thing that made it perfect...was our room!!! We felt like we were home. It was so easy to unwind and get the kids to bed. Make our own meals in a full kitchen. And... More

We are planning an impulsive trip to Redwoods and, based on reviews here, tried to make a reservation at View Crest. We left two phone messages on their archaic reservation line and finally called back and spoke with the OWNER. What a turd! He said that he didn't call us back because he had no availability blah...blah, blah. We were... More

We stayed in the smallest cabin, which is good enough for two people. There is a queen bed with a sofa, a desk, TV, small fridge, microwave and coffee maker. The room was very clean and comfortable. Wifi was fast. Quick check in and check out. Location is about 8 miles from downtown Trinidad.

Family stayed at the wonderful View Crest lodge and loved it. Ate dinner on the grassy area that surrounds our cabin with the ocean view and drank coffee on our porch every morning. Kids even met some other kiddos there and played with them each night. My parents stayed in their RV in the RV park behind the cabins and... More

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
