The inn is located in the woods near the beach. The walking trail to the grove and the view looking down towards the beach, and the seals, is wonderful. Great staff and room, the breakfast was fabulous. Pricey but a lovely getaway.

Found online, we stayed one night here. Actually stayed in the room in the pic. Really clean! Moss beach bluff just steps away. Bikes available(2?), self serv coffee, soda, wine, frige down the hall, gas fireplaces, NO A/C if too warm; Kevin brought a fan for us, and explained the meteorology of the area to us. Was still warm in our room. LIGHT, but pretty, breakfast included, fresh OJ; cottontails and many birds in the garden. No restaurant/kitchen open for more than breakfast. Bring a corkscrew. Restaurants located just south of Moss Beach. If the entire experience was brought to the next level and the owners spent more time on the "attractiveness to travelers" of the place, the value would be better realized. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly, but many caveats as noted in these reviews need to go away with the new owners. More bikes, maybe electric assist bikes, actual garden, so much potential.

Beautiful place, great room, complimentary wine 5-6pm, breakfast, coffee, snacks and beverages! Great value for such a busy and expensive time of year! Very nice staff. The grounds around it and ocean are breath taking! There are seals at low tide. Would stay again 100%

For a weekend getaway, this place was perfect. Loved the warm welcome cookies & coffee/tea, the garden with the flowers and the cosy fireplace in our room. We could chose to have breakfast served in our room. Also, the beach, hiking trails in the forest and fabulous restaurants are close by. We will be back soon!!!

We decided to take a 3-day trip away to start out my maternity leave, and we couldn't have been happier with our decision to stay here. The inn has been renovated fairly recently (I believe in the last 1-2 years), and is absolutely beautiful. Lovely garden, warm and comfortable decor, and tons of light. The highlight, however, was easily the staff. Diana greeted us when we arrived, gave us a tour of the inn and the amenities available to us, and was incredibly friendly. During the evening wine receptions, she spent time talking to all the guests and always remembered everyone's names. She made sure that everyone had reservations if needed, and would take care of calling the restaurants and making arrangements as needed. Breakfast was included, and was wonderful. There was a menu that you could choose from the night before (up to 3 selections), and you could choose where and when you wanted it. All of the staff were friendly and accommodating throughout our stay. Staying here just felt like you were being taken care of. The coffee, tea, beverages (including sodas, water, etc) were complimentary. Fresh-baked cookies were out for consumption until the guests had finished them. And anything we needed - recommendations, accommodations, etc., were taken care of. We had a wonderful 3 days here, and would happily come back. Thank you so much, Diana and the rest of the Seal Cove Inn staff!!
