Such a fabulous destination to get to! The drive getting there was amazing. We were greeted by Chris and Alicia who offered us chocolates in the lobby, and then made sure our room had plenty of fire wood, and that the heat and tv were turned on. We watched in comfort as the rain came down, and the sea got...

I had been wanting an excuse to head up the coast for a while and with New Years it was the perfect opportunity. Checked all over, from Bodega Bay to Manchester and found this spot right in the middle. It was an awesome spot right next to the cliff. The units all felt completely unique and chill with fireplaces (they...

We started our very first 4 generation family girls only getaway trip in San Francisco. We started driving Hwy 1 as soon as we crossed the Golden Gate. None of us had driven this part of Hwy 1. The road was an enjoyable drive for someone who loves twists, turns and glorious ocean scenery. We stopped at several small towns....

Perfect location with no cell service (but wifi if needed). Cozy large units with all amenity readily available. A lot of thought has gone into the set up by the Inn Keepers. Wonderful Inn Keepers willing to help and guide you around the area. REAL wood burning fire place, incredible sun rise and set views. Located close to full restaurant...

Gorgeous property situated on the coast between Jenner and Timber Cove. Mini mart conveniently located across the street. In our cabin, we had a wood burning stove, a really big comfortable bed, mini fridge & microwave, and a real hot tub out on the patio, not just a jetted tub!!! And the community hot tub is open 24 hrs! Extremely...

The rooms are situated away from HWY 1. Quiet night. The bed was quite hard, but that would be our only complaint. The staff was great at check-in. The room was clean. The little frig was quiet and kept our drinks cold. Was close to our destination of Salt Point Park.

We stayed on "the hill." The view was amazing and so was our room. I wish we could have stayed longer. There were so many amenities! Real wine glasses! Deck overlooking the ocean! Jacuzzi! Sauna in the room! Large bathroom!

The staff were amazingly friendly and they were able to give us a personal tour in Russian. There is a frontier feel to the place and you can sense how far these people were from home. Well worth a visit if you are in area.
