We had a great time at the Captain's Inn. It was a wonderful mixture of decadence and wildlife viewing. Our first morning a red-shouldered hawk buzzed our window. A little later a white-tailed kite was kiting in front of the window and a harrier was cruising below. We saw at least 2 Say's phoebes, otters, seals, pelicans, shorebirds, sparrows, cormorants, loons and more from our window. Captain Yahn is very knowledgeable about local wildlife. There is a bird list just for the inn.
The 3 course breakfasts were wonderful, especially the sweet potato pancakes. The Innkeeper was very accommodating. Other reviewers mentioned time frames and rules, but she will work with you if she can.
We walked to 2 great restaurants: The Haute Enchilada and The Lemon Grass Thai restaurant (lots of vegetarian options.)
The beach and harbor are within walking distance. We had a great kayak trip up the slough. The boat motif is fun. The beds were comfortable and our room was quiet.
