Margaret and Richard have thought of everything. The accommodation is superior, the location is stunning and they really care that you have a good time while you're there. What could be better? We walked down into Shelter Cove for dinner, which they had kindly booked for us. It's only about a mile and on the way back we saw lots... More

By far, the Spyglass Inn exceeded our expectations. The experience was so unique that it's hard to put into words. The owners are extremely gracious and only want the best for you. We were able to take many wonderful pictures right from our fabulous suite including pelicans in flight, a family of deer, and a great sunset! Many of the... More

The Spyglass Inn at Shelter Cove is simply unbelievable. I found out about this place by accident or so I thought. This place exceeded my expectations. The owner and his wife were so personable I felt right at home. The views were unreal. I have not sleep so good in years!!! 10 Stars!

We are not sure whether or not to let others in on this little secret. It's so fabulous, wonderful, spectacular, enjoyable, and beautiful that we are rather shy about spreading the word. But it would be selfish of us to keep it to ourselves. As having stayed at various places along the west coast, from Half Moon Bay to Bodega... More

This was our first trip to Shelter Cove and the Spyglass Inn was fantastic. Our room was spacious, clean and had an incredible view. The owners were very friendly and accommodating and went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed. If we ever find our way back, we will be sure to stay here again. We... More

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.
