Nice place on the coast of no California. Cozy rooms with gas fireplaces over looking the rocky cliffs of the pacific. The weather can be very cold and windy but the view is really nice. Rooms have been remodeled and were quite nice

My wife and I spent one nights at the Timber Cove Resort. Next time we will stay longer. Our room looked out at the Pacific and the vinyl record player with classic albums was a great touch. Our dinner and breakfast there was very good and the wait staff were friendly and responsive. We plan on going back to the...

Dear TJTT, Thanks for your kind and attentive review. We are proud to hear your words specifically in regards of our service.

A modern, well designed, fun resort on a beautiful stretch of the coast. The room was a nice mix of beautiful hardwoods, stone, and retro touches. I had a chuckle at the record player at first glance, but realized that the record collection was a fun opportunity to listen to an actual record end to end. Stevie Wonder, David Bowie,...

Hi Glenn, Thanks for taking time to review us. We are delighted you had fun and interestingly you mentioned a few records that are favorites, our owners had this thought through in a fantastic way and we had the initial plan of retro-Hippy. This concept is not widely available and with the great restoration and re-invention of iconic Timber Cove,...

We stopped on our way to Mendocino after leaving SFO. There were 8 family members (3 generations) spending New Year's weekend on the ocean. ALL rooms were well done and very up to date. The fire-ring overlooking the ocean was very welcoming that evening and we and other guests chatted for an hour or so. Inside the bar and restaurant...

Dear Bob, Thank you so much for taking the time to review us and for your kind and outstanding rating of the newly re-invented Timber Cove.

Modern rooms with minimalist Scandinavian designs and extremely comfortable beds. Loved the in-room amenities of pour-over filter coffee and record players (with a lending library of records in the lobby). Ocean View rooms have sweeping views of the Pacific and the cliffs below. Loved the outdoor areas with fire pits, ping pong, pool, and foosball, plus the bar and lounge...

New owners are making a huge improvement to Timber Cove. We recently went in for a meal at Timber Cove and were very pleased with our meals.

Wow!! I don't have the words. This place is amazing and secluded. The restaurant has a fantastic view, a culinary delight and perfect for that special someone.

Have stayed at Timber Cove 3 consecutive years...once had a welcoming feel, that has now been replaced with pretentious, Euro spa atmosphere. Possibly going for a chef based foodie experience- we were lost on the $400 New Years Eve pre defined menu. Poor marketing and communication. Thank you Boon in Guerneville for taking care of us!!!!

Nice place but without much to do and all the heaters outside all off was tough to do much. The menu really lacks of basic selections. Not everyone can eat seafood and even what was listed didn't resemble any high end restaurant we've been to. Where's a real lounge menu ? Where's a steak and lobster platter ? Where's crab...
