We booked a night at the Ragged Point Inn for old time's sake, having stayed there on our first anniversary, thirty-one years ago. I suspect most people stumble upon the inn because they grow weary of driving Highyway One in the fog or the dark, in fact the the Australian who checked in right after us said that is why he was checking in.
Our room was in an older part of the facility where the dark decor, while freshened up has not changed for thirty years. We appreciated the gas fire place that provides heat for the room and access to the patio overlooking the ocean, just outside of our room. The major issue I had was the bathroom where thick, black mold grows on the shower walls. Chunks of mold broke off while I showered, yuck.
If you can Ignore the mold, the grounds of the inn are pretty, planted with mostly California natives that attract hummingbirds and butterflies. The "nature path" still allows for a challenging trek down the side of the bluff to the ocean. The seclusion of the area, on a bluff with ocean views is the reason I come back.
