My boyfriend and I are used to the busy city like and wanted to getaway to a quiet place. After further research, we ended up picking the Spyglass Inn for 4 nights (6/29/16 - 7/3/16). While, this was the second time visiting the Avenue of the Giant area, it was our first time staying at the Spyglass Inn. The property... More

My stay at the Spygalass Inn was perfect. Richard and Margaret are two of the nicest people and were attentive and very helpful. It was a joy to be around them. The inn is lovely, very comfortable with a lovely costal ambiance. My favorite part of the experience was the balcony. Being right over the ocean was heaven. I hope... More

So, we had reservations for another place in Shelter Cove which did not work out. We contacted Richard at The Spyglass Inn at the last minute and were so glad he was able to work with us on such short notice. My wife and I had the greatest time in the BEST accommodations with spectacular views. We would definitely return.... More

Do not stay here if you're inviting guests over for the day or even an hour. The owners will harass you and the guests. The place is small and it costs just as much to rent a private house on the ocean. I stayed here for my wedding weekend with the goal that I would have a private honeymoon getaway... More

We stayed here for 3 nights over the Memorial day weekend. I don't remember the last time we had such a relaxing vacation. The suite was very cozy and clean. It has a huge balcony with glass railings giving you an unobstructed view of the ocean and nothing but the ocean. It sometimes felt like we were on a cruise... More

From my very first conversation with Richard, our host and owner of The Spyglass Inn, I felt as if I made the right choice. Richard was friendly and helpful in helping me make a room choice. He even advised me to stop at the Shop Mart in Redway if we needed any groceries and to call him when we were... More

Our son is a great outdoorsmen. We gathered in San Fran for Thanksgiving. Our second goal was to get out of the city and find some good day hikes that included the coast. Richard was a thoughtful host, even in the planning process. We stayed in the Seascape Suite. It was well appointed with all you need to prepare your... More
