My husband and I along with another couple stayed for one night at this location on our drive to California from Portland, Oregon. It is NOT close to anything. It is 22 miles off the highway on a slow winding road. It takes about 45 minutes to drive that slow winding road. The price is expensive. There is a beautiful... More

Our family spent 3 days over Christmas at the Inn. Our rooms had incredible views and the sound of the ocean lulled us to sleep nightly. Loren was ever so helpful. As the manager, she even went out of her way to call me at home to let me know that I left my favorite pillow behind in our room... More

I had my wedding and reception in Shelter Cove this past weekend. I booked several rooms at the Inn of the Lost Coast for myself and some of our guests. Lauren the Inn Keeper was very sweet and patient as I kept changing which and how many rooms we would be needing- clear up to the day of our wedding!... More

I love this place! Not only is this hotel's view outstanding, but the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Our room blew us away when we opened the door, and we were perfectly accommodated throughout our stay. There are dishes in the mini kitchen and a big cable TV in the room, and it's still spacious despite the sauna and... More

Shelter Cove is a secluded town located west of the 101, about 20 miles of semi-perilous mountain road. We arrived around 7pm, just as the fog was rolling in off the coast. The Inn's setting is lovely, but we found the accommodations to be serviceable but not exceptional. Our basic suite was on the 3rd floor in an older building... More

A couple friends and I met up in Shelter Cove to get away and try one of the local mountain bike rides. This location is outstanding. The view is phenomenal! The couple that run it are particular but very accommodating. There is a coffee shop and pizza place adjacent to the inn. They have a big hot tub and deck... More

This Inn/motel is located at the most secluded spot in north coast. Getting there could be a trial to your breaks. It is very important that you have good breaking system in your vehicle and to drive safely. Once you arrive at Shelter Cove you will be rewarded with a great view, secluded beaches and a romantic upscale town. When... More

My wife found the Inn of the Lost Coast on the net several days before we were to travel to the area. What an awesome place! We originally were only going to stay 1 night then work our way in to the redwoods but the scenery and atmosphere had us stay another 24 hours. The black sand and pebble beach... More

Took me forever to get there but the beauty was worth it!!!! Inn a bit rundown but I spent most my time walking the coast, there's no place really to eat that's worth it so plan on bringing a picnic dinner!!

We stayed in the third floor corner room. It's was awesome!! The views were spectacular. The innkeepers Paul and Mary Jane were so very friendly. After we checked in, Paul actually took us around the grounds and showed us where every thing was and then took us to up to our room! The room and the balcony are quite large.... More
