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

We enjoyed a great three nights at the Spyglass Inn! The Inn is very well maintained and the location is perfect with nice and undisturbed views of the ocean and sunsets. It was one of the cleanest and nicest Inns we stayed in on our three months trip through the US and Canada. We can recommend the Spyglass Inn to... More

Absolutely love the peace and quiet at Spyglass Inn. We visit every year around my birthday and the hosts, Rich and Margaret make sure everything is perfect. I highly recommend the Spyglass Inn if you are looking for a quiet get away. The rooms are clean and comfortable. For us, it is a home away from home.

We stayed here several times. I have nothing bad to say about this place. It's always relaxing and Richard and Margaret are so welcoming. It's definitely the place to stay if you're visiting Shelter Cove. This place is beautiful and one of a kind.

The Spyglass Inn was truly magical. We stayed in the Spyglass Suite which was spotlessly clean, had an amazing view of the Lost Coast, a well equipped kitchen, showed careful attention to detail, and included a jacuzzi tub perfectly positioned for watching the changing sky and beautiful sunsets. The innkeeper Richard was very friendly and helpful, while respecting our privacy... More

When my husband was researching for our trip, he told me about this amazing place he found for us to stay--we were both looking forward to it. Sure enough, the Spyglass Inn lived up to our expectations. We loved the amazing view--waves crashing on the rocks, birds playing, and the ever-changing sky. We also really appreciated the attention to detail... More

My husband and I were wrapping up our honeymoon road trip when we arrived at Shelter Cove to stay at Spyglass Inn for two nights. Richard and Margaret were so wonderful from the time of booking over the phone to the time we left. We stayed in the Spyglass Suite which has a jacuzzi in the window, a nice added... More
