We had ridden our Harley to Shelter Cove last May after staying in Garberville and thought we would check out this back road to Shelter Cove. We explored the area and thought this would be a great place to relax and unwind. So for our fall vacation we decided to head to Shelter Cove and spend a few days and... More

Lost coast is a perfect place for a lost weekend or anytime you are ready for total relaxation. Our host Julie was an attentive manager who attended to our every need. The views are what you are after and you will not be disappointed. The sounds of the ocean are the best on the coast. Excellant restaurant on premise.Say hi... More

the oceanfront inn was simply stunning. The views and beach access is all that one needs for a complete vacation. We ate at the cove reastaurant which filled our palette and then some. I would recommend this establishment to anyone who wants to have a refreshing and relaxing trip.

Location-location-location! Shelter cove is a must, and if you have the chance to leave the kids behind (we didn't), things may even get better. The Oceanfront is great, Julie is a pro, replied to all my question promptly, left us the keys in a clear place due to our late arrival, and even a small surprise bags for the kids.... More

Pleasantly surprise by the view at the Inn. Staff was very helpful and made our stay comfortable. The restaurant served an excellent seafood dinner. The cove was easy to walk around. The lighthouse was a plus feature. Will return for sure.

This was a beautiful hotel and the complimentary bottle of wine was a nice touch. We arrived there on a Wednesday night around 5:45 and no one was in the office but we were greeted shortly there after. We didn't have the luxury of the dining room since they were closed that day, as were all the other restaurants. Did... More
