“A memorable and beautiful place to stay”
Reviewed June 18, 2011

We were so lucky to find this wonderful Inn, which is composed of self-contained, self-catering apartments perched at the top of the cliffs, overlooking the ocean and just by Black Sands Beach. Richard and Margaret were kindness itself and were extremely helpful and friendly. Our apartment was beautiful with first class facilities and very tastefully furnished. The jacuzzi overlooking the ocean was an added bonus. We liked our apartment so much we stayed an extra day. If we were on this coast again we would not hesitate to return. John and Terri

My husband and I felt we found a true hidden treasure here. The Sheltered Cove Inn is a mix of your own private apartment with a touch of the charm of a bed and breakfast. The owners Richard and Margaret quickly make you feel at home and they have a way of making you feel like family. You see and speak with the other guest, but you have the privacy of your own apartment and balcony with beachfront views. Shelteted Cove is a quaint, charming town that couples will love. This is not a party place, it is a serene, peaceful, beautiful place to get away and truly enjoy your relationship with each other. The Inn does not have a restaurant, however there is one close by and it is excellent.

Room Tip: All the room are of equal quality.

I stayed here with my husband for my fiftieth birthday and found this hotel and area to be the most idyllic spot ever. Our hosts Richard and Margaret were nothing short of fabulous. They were extremely attentive to EVERY need we had and basically treated us like special friends rather than paying guests. The room was PERFECT. We enjoyed the breathtaking view from our room, the perfectly appointed kitchen, the spotless rooms, and comfortable jacuzzi. There is much in the way of hiking in the area and we took advantage of that. I cannot recommend this hotel enough, it is well worth the money.

Went here with my parents and a friend. The hotel was very beautiful and luxurious. Stunning view and the hosts were very nice and attentive. Despite staying there only one night, it was well worth the effort to drive up to the isolated Shelter Cove. Way better than any other hotel in the area.

We love this Inn and the Hosts are amazing and friendly. We were married at Black Sands Beach so coming back here is filled with great memories. The Hosts make sure that the suites are inviting, for us it's like coming home! The views must be experienced for youself because they are breath taking. Thank you for making this our special place.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with our friendly, welcoming hosts at the inn. The view of the ocean from our private, spacious deck was fantastic, nesting cormorants, migrating loons. We loved the fully equipped kitchen, fireplace and very comfortable bed. Great views of the King Range as well!
