Beautiful walks on a private beach. We enjoyed the sunset from our deck. The staff was very friendly & accommodating. The breakfast was great with so many choices. Enjoyed the cocktail hour & a chance to meet other guests staying there.

EQUISITe beach-great suite- had wonderful duck confit & cassoulet in the restaurant, pure pleasure. Staff friedly & helpful, breakfast sumptuous and the setting unparalleled in Northern Ca. Recommend highly, also the horseback riding at nearby Ross Ranch to get the full feel of the area.

Lovely property and comfy cottage type room. The view of the beach could be enjoyed from our patio, the chairs inside and even from the bed. Really an incredible view. It’s a short walk down to the beautiful beach where I found several abalone shells....More
