The Spyglass Inn is absolutely wonderful! My boyfriend and I stayed there for 3 nights while visiting the redwood forests and the Lost Coast. The owners were welcoming and sweet, very personal and attentive. They made reservations for us at a great seafood restaurant down the street and suggested some nearby hikes. The room was clean and comfortable with up-to-date... More

We just spent our 15th visit at Spyglass last month. We can't get enough of the place.....what's particularly nice is the location, right on a cliff edge overlooking the ocean. Peaceful? Yes indeed. Sit on your balcony or patio and watch pelicans fly by in formation. Deer frequent the yard in the late afternoon, and often you can catch a... More

We drove up the California coast for 2 weeks during Christmas. After reading the reviews, we decided to give this little out-of-the-way gem a try. The host's were gracious and accommodating. The suite was everything we hoped for. Bring your own food as there are not any grocery stores or restaurants. The host has a gas grill and the kitchen... More

We really liked our stay here. The owners are nice and accommodating. The view is spectacular, and the beaches around there are great for whale and seal watching. The full kitchen was also great, especially since there were no open restaurants when we stayed there.

Our family is from Tracy, CA. For Easter/Spring break of the kids and our 15th wedding anniversary, we decided to drive up north to this marvelous place. If you want some place relaxing and re-energizing, where it is not crowded, has very friendly people who still know how to wave and say hi face-to-face, even to foreign visitors like us;... More

My husband and I had planned on driving from BC Canada down the Oregon coast down to San Francisco. Our stay at the Spyglass in was by far the highlight of our trip. Richard and Margaret were the perfect hosts. The room was excellent and the view is spectacular. We found ourselves extremely relaxed (also very sad to leave) by... More

What a night to remember! The Spyglass Inn @ Shelter Cove is the most pristine place we have stay in years. The Inn keepers Richard and Margaret were so attentive to our every need. The view and surroundings are breath taking, such a relaxing place to be.

This was our "lucky" 13th visit to the cove. We keep coming back for the view, the serenity, the people, the tidepools, and the hosts. Thanksgiving weather was not to be missed....70s and sunny all weekend, with most of our time spent walking or on the patio sipping wine and watching the deer. What I love about Spyglass suites are... More
