And lots of it. Always appreciated when arriving to a new place. In this instance, in addition to the hospitality, the view is lovely, the room clean and spacious and the area calm and quirky. Shelter Cove is not a cookie cutter tourist experience. Enjoy!

We just had the most amazing, relaxing couple of day at the Spyglass Inn. We were originally going to stay only one night but quickly decided to stay two as the place is so wonderful and comfortable. We were welcome by Richard and instantly made feel at home. The suite was beyond words as it was so spectacular as soon... More

This unique "End-of-the-Road" destination is a perfect destination for anyone seeking natural beauty. Hikes, wildlife view (including whales), ocean music and immaculate acomodations with a well stocked kitchen and cozy jacuzzi make for a romantic visit. We hiked the Lost Coast; went tide pooling and abalone diving at low tide; then took in a breathtaking sunset and star filled sky... More

Another lovely weekend stay... We don't have much gumption when staying at Spyglass, more of a lazy daze, fog of the mind, utter mind blank bliss. That's what we go there for, that restful respite of nothingness. Not that there wasn't plenty to do. There are the many tide pools which take several hours of the day. Nice meandering down... More

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
