Thank goodness we stayed more than one night-- we had never been to Shelter Cove before and enjoyed our two-night stay at this great Inn.We were lucky with perfect weather, too.I am glad we brought food (and wine) with us because the tiny town has limited dining options. The fish and chips( at the deli ) were wonderful! The locals... More

My wife and I recently stayed here, over Labor Day weekend, for our 5th anniversary. We were looking for a place to comfortably relax and get 'off the grid' for a little while; the Shelter Cove Inn fit the bill beautifully. The rooms are a great mix of luxury type amenities with a very rustic, 'off-the-beaten-path' location. We were a... More

Our family of 6 was vacationing in Northern CA and as I planned our trip I stumbled across the Lost Coast and knew we had to make time to visit. My husband and I were celebrating our 25th anniversary during the trip, so we decided this beautiful inn was the perfect place! Richard and Margaret were very accomodating, giving our... More

This was our 6th or 7th time there, we've lost count. Every time we feel like being pampered, we head to SCI. It is a true home away from home for us, and we are getting attached to the place....Richard and Margaret are wonderful hosts! The suites are located on a natural bluff above the ocean, where the deer call... More

If EVER you want a place to get away and relax, Shelter Cove is the place and the Shelter Cove Inn is the place to stay. As you can see I marked the pool as excellent, what better pool than the whole ocean out in front of you. You have everything you could ever want in a place to stay,... More

My wife and I just returned from our honeymoon, four nights of which we spent at the lovely, peaceful and charming Shelter Cove Inn. My only regret was not spending our entire honeymoon there. We stayed in the Spyglass Suite. It was very luxurious, complete with a gas fireplace, jacuzzi tub and a very nice kitchen. Hosts Richard and Margaret... More

After a long day of hiking the Lost Coast we were so delighted to find the Shelter Cove Inn with its charming and accommodating hosts Richard and Margaret. The suites (small apartments) were so peaceful and beautifully decorated. The atmosphere was quiet and rejuvenating with the magnificent ocean view. The suites felt like home and were kept in immaculate condition.... More

We stayed here planning to use it as a base from which to drive out to the Avenue of the Giants. However, after seeing our "room", we decided to stay in the cove the next full day that we were there and see the Avenue on our way home the following day. We booked the Dolphin suite during our very... More

So glad we chose Shelter Cove Inn over other options in Shelter Cove! The "room" (actually a small condo) was pristine and comfortable. The kitchen was furnished with just what you need and the appliances are new and easy to use. There is a beautiful view, relaxed atmosphere, and quiet (we heard only the ocean at night). It's a short... More

This inn was absolutely beautiful! The owners, Richard and Margaret were so friendly and our room was so clean and beautiful. This was the perfect getaway with an amazing view. We will definitely plan to return and would highly recommend the Shelter Cove Inn. We looked at the other inns/motels and this was definitely the best one in Shelter Cove.... More
