“Best Place to stay in Fort Bragg CA”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

The Shoreline Cottages offer a reasonable price clean room with all the ammenities plus special touches to make you feel right at home. The Hot Tub is private, clean and most of all inviting. Yes it is located along Hwy 1 and not next to the beach shore but it is only a short lovely walk from your room - nice walk with your room supplied Kona coffee in the morning or evening. There are many choices to choose from in Fort Bragg to stay, but I recommend you to choose Shorelone Cottages if you want a clean, peaceful and relaxing stay that allows pets.

Thanks Shoreline Cottages for making my entire parties stay in Fort Bragg such a pleasureable experience. Shoreline Cottages will always be my first choice in accomendations when I am in Fort Bragg.

Room Tip: Shoreline offers rooms with different decor to meet just about all occasions and best of all, they a...

Shoreline Cottages was a wonderful place for our annual road trip with our dogs. They had a welcoming basket for the dogs with biscuits, bowls, towels and dog beds. 5 minute walk to a very private cove where the dogs could run on the beach. Shoreline has a very nice fire pit and BBQ area, and the grounds are nicely landscaped. Hot tub and area in back to walk the dogs. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

My wife and I booked the Dolphin room for one night on our west coast tour. The room was clean and very pleasant as was the owner. This room is close to the highway, so traffic noise can be a problem if the windows are kept open.

The little car port between rooms was handing for unloading and loading our gear. The highlight of this location is Hare Beach which is a great sandy beach within a 5 minute walk across the highway. The steps down to the beach are not for the elderly or those with mobility challenges. However, for those who can manage the slippy and steep stairs, the beach is worth the effort.

Room Tip: If traffic noise is a concern, book a room in the back of the property.

My family and I were enjoying our road trip down the west coast of the USA and had been camping for two weeks. We decided we deserved a break from sleeping under canvas and chose Shoreline cottages. What a wise choice. A very warm welcome, lovely clean and spacious room, and best of all was the hot tub. My daughters loved star spotting from its warm waters at night - we even saw a couple of shooting stars. Fort Bragg was a revelation too with a big choice of good food and shops. Thanks.

Room Tip: Dont tell the rest of your party about the hot-tub. Let it be a surprise.

We stayed here with our dog a while back and I was just looking at picture and realized I never did a review. We talk about going back all the time. I read another review that said that the beaches aren't with in walking distance and that is not the case. There is a fabulous beach very close. The owners will give you directions. It is a great beach for dogs because it is a large cove so they can safely run free. We stayed in one of the remolded suits and the dog cottage and both worked out well but I would recommend the suite.

We stayed here July 28th for one night while traveling up the coast. I was pleased with the bathroom supplies in the Lighthouse cottage. Room is a bit on the small side. Cleaning ladies had done a nice job. Was surprised at how close busy highway was to property. Is not within walking distance of any nice beaches, you need a car to get around. Owner/manager was very nice. We felt it was a tad overpriced for what it was.

We went to the Skunk Train with 2 other couples for a mini-vacation and stayed at the Shoreline Cottages in Ft. Bragg. There were 6 of us and each couple had a different kind of room. We stayed in the Family (#9) room for 4 with 2 queen beds, and a mini-kitchen and it was quite adequate. The bathroom was small but the water was hot and we had plenty of space. My friends stayed in the renovated Sun Room (#10) with a fireplace, queen bed and futon, refrigerator with kitchen items but you would have to use the bathroom sink, and a porch in the back. Their room had a renovated bathroom with a jetted tub. The other couple stayed in the Dog Cottage (#3) with a queen bed, mini fireplace, and small but full kitchen. We all enjoyed our rooms. We used the hot tub both nights but it really only fits four not six and is poorly lit and we couldn't adequately see the controls but the the night sky was gorgeous. There was a slight problem with foam but once we figured out it was caused by the chlorine floater we were fine.
We used the barbeque gas grill for dinner one night and the fire pit. It was quite a nice stay and each room had an amenity that we needed to make the stay fun. I know that some commented on the highway noise and while we did hear it on and off it was not that noticeable at the fire pit or on the porch. The one couple that stayed in the cottage didn't notice it at all in their room which was close to the highway 101.
We would definitely stay there again. It's quaint and much nicer than a hotel room with a mini-kitchen where you would sit in a hotel room and share a brought in meal on someone's bed. All the rooms have a small table with 2 chairs out front and we actually met a very nice family from Seattle who joined us at the fire pit.
Give it a try you will enjoy!

Room Tip: Use the fire pit and gas grill with friends. Try to get a cottage if you are a couple they are cut...
