“So much more than I expected!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2011

My finance & I spent a last minute, mid week, short 2 day stay here in Shelter Cove. We called every hotel, pricing a 1 night stay. We choose to stay at the Inn of the lost Coast because of the location, phone service we received & we wanted to check out the entire Hotel for our wedding. We walked in to a very clean and fresh office, Justin greeted us with a friendly smile and quickly recalled our phone conversation earlier that day. Justin was able to up grade my room to the corner location. We were just amazed by the view and the calm tranquil feel of this Inn!! The room was nice and clean. We had a peaceful night and the next day we went to visit Justin for a tour. They have everything!! They even have a sauna in the room where we will be staying on our wedding weekend! A fire pit, spa, reception room with chairs and tables. I am picky so I did have my reservations but Justin made everything so easy and he was even able to recommend several caterers to choose from. We are so excited and we can barley wait till June!!! Thank you Justin!!! WE are recommending all of our wedding quests stay here. Love the kitties by the way!!!

This is the end of the world - or at least the end of California and, in fact, the western end of continental America! The hotel is not located BY the ocean - it's located ON the ocean. I'm not talking about ocean view, I'm talking about facing the breakers just below the balcony! It's breathtaking, desolate - and licking foggy. Bring a sweater and enjoy!

The racket. This evening, it has had a profound fog on Shelter Cove. A single opened hotel. The Inn of the Lost Coast. I appear. Nobody. I have to go in the kitchen to find somebody. Some minutes later, Justin (--) appears. He gives me the price for a room : 240 Dollars. An exaggerated price list. This type takes advantage that few people make turn back in this fog and at more than 40 miles of an another hotel. To avoid.

Shelter Cove is a unique place on its own. Inn of the Lost Coast is the perfect place to stay at a location that is a long way from everything. We had a room with jacuzzi and sauna. Private panoramic view of the ocean that was 40 feet away. From our deck, we saw whales just outside of the surf line. Mike and Toni are wonderful hosts.

This place was amazing, so worth the crazy drive! We stayed in a corner room and the views out the windows were like out of a movie. Wish we would have stayed longer. One recommendation come with your drinks and snacks everything is very expensive once you get there.

We stayed in this lovely inn for 2 wonderful nights . I made the reservations over the phone since this was a last-minute vacation , and Justin was kind, sweet and accommodating . While the inn was lovely by itself, his knowledge of the area and work attitude set the bar for employees who love and enjoy their work . We shall be dreaming of our next stay here .
