“Loved Shelter Cove Beachcomber Inn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2007

We stayed two nights in unit 1 of the Beachcomber Inn at Shelter Cove, Ca. which is part of the so-called Lost Coast in northern California. The small inn is located just above the cove with access to the crescent shaped beach. The cottages are rustic and comfortable and the setting on a hill at sunset is very atmospheric. Its rates are considerably more reasonable than the other hostelries there. Unit 1 in which we stayed was a spacious cottage with a living room, kitchen, including refrigerator and stove, cable tv, a queen sleep sofa, two bunk beds, and bedroom with queen bed, bathroom, and an outdoor gas grill. The unit is immaculately maintained. You need to call in advance for a reservation rather than email --there is no email website--and guarantee your reservation by credit card. There is a nearby small market for sundries and two restaurants in other inns which are open only on the weekends-check their schedules if you are not planning to bring your own food and drink. 5 miles distant is Black Sands beach and adjacent moderate to steep wilderness hiking trails. If you are looking for tranquility, ocean fishing in the cove by available charters or your own boat, or hiking opportunities, this is an enviable location. Reaching it via a very sinuous two lane road from Garberville takes about 45 minutes. A longer 2 1/2 hour +drive via Ferndale takes you through the mountains to shelter cover.
