A wonderful 10 room inn with a fantastic living room/family area. So cozy to sit by the fireplace in the living room and read. Just a short walk to the beach and many other trails are near the inn. Very attentive staff!

What a find! This place is upmarket, beautiful, splendidly-located and a real gem. It's quiet with wonderful forest walks and access to a beautiful marine preserve beach. We stayed for three nights on our honeymoon in one of the best rooms and I could have stayed a week. It's quite a little drive from Half Moon Bay (15 minutes or...

I came here 20 years ago with my mom and had such nice memories of this inn. It is still lovely. The short walk to the Pacific is breathtaking as the cypress trees are phenomenal. We didn't stay for breakfast as we were too busy but they did pack it up for us. Coffee and tea readily available and soft...

Comfy, cozy, elegant and quiet. Very close to beach and tide pools. Very comfortable rooms and surroundings. Cozy and effective gas-fired fireplace in each room. Perfect for a couples get away. B&B-like (breakfast is excellent) but the staff doesn't hover and drive you nuts. Staff is excellent - helpful and knowledgeable of area and restaurants. Small hotel with only 10-rooms....

We stayed at the Seal Cove in for our anniversary. Beautiful, cozy, quiet stay. Close to the ocean with walks to the beach. The building is a 10 room B&B. Our room included a fireplace, and a view of the garden. The bed and furnishings were beautiful. Elegant stay overall.

The inn itself is gorgeous, our room was luxurious, and the breakfast was wonderful. The staff is outstanding and is very attentive. Our room had patio access to the lovely gardens out back. Just steps from the Inn, a short easy walking trail leads to the beach where my wife and I explored the tide pools. We loved our stay.
