Apart from the incredible surroundings which offers Highway 1, the lodge room was spacious, very comfortable and cozy. The views on the ocean are incredible. We would light the fireplace when it was getting dark, just to get in the hot...

Nice rooms with a beautifully landscaped grounds. The owners were very friendly and the beds were comfortable. Would definitely come back here again and again. The scenery in the area is hard to beat as well.

If you aren't comfortable in your own skin, don't go here. This is a remote beautiful property that will soothe your soul and offer rejuvenation if you can stop and let all the nature wash over you. This is not a chain. This is an independent Lodge that may not feature a completely up to date look but is spotlessly...

The Inn keepers Chris & Alicia and grounds staff are courteous and personable. We have been visiting this property for about 7 years and have never been disappointed. The ocenview is awesome, with private deer watching every morning right from your room patio. We love it.

Wonderful place to stay on the coast. Management is friendly and attentive to everything. The patios feel private and have views of the ocean. There's even a store across the road. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

A beautiful, quiet, relaxing lodge. The proprietors work hard to keep it that way. We feel comfortable at the Lodge. We get the feeling that we are at home here. The facilities, the sauna, the spa, the sun room, as well as the BBQ all work. What ever you ask for, you are given and with a positive attitude.
