We had The Perfect Stay with the Spyglass Inn. From the reception to the decor to the advice to the conversations, Richard has done an AMAZING job with this beautiful and welcoming Inn. I cannot begin to explain how comfortable and happy we were. The bathroom was so chic and put together, the bedroom featured a huge and well styled... More

My wife and I stopped here for two nights at the end of a cross country trip. It was a great ending to a hectic road trip. Even though access from US-101 is via a "long and winding road", the end was worth it. The hosts are very welcoming and give you lots of information. The suite (we stayed in... More

I spent a great weekend with my wife and 2 children at the Spyglass Inn on our way to Portland. The owners are very sweet and the view of the ocean from our balcony was simply mesmerizing. Just sitting there to stare at the ocean and the wild animals crossing the lawn was an amazing experience (the deer family got... More

The owners Richard & Margaret were so amazingly delightful and attentive. I have never felt so welcomed & at home at a hotel/inn as I did here. The property is private, safe, very clean and the unobstructed view of the ocean is amazing! This is where I will stay the next time I visit.

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
