We arrived at the Sandpiper after a flight from the UK and could not have felt more relaxed and comfortable. Both the Inn and Stinson Beach itself were perfect - the website does not do the place justice.
We witnessed a beautiful sunset on the beach that evening. The sound of the sea at night was gorgeous.
We could not fault the room which was spotless and comfortable, and included a kitchenette which was fine to cook stuff in but if you take a room without one, there were some lovely cafes and restaurants in the town. Other local amenities include a grocery store and and bookshop.
Some recommended activities in the area include walking the Dipsea/Steep ravine/Matt Davis trails in a loop; going to the Point Reyes Bird Observatory at sunrise and seeing the hummingbirds, and heading up to the National Seashore.
We highly recommend staying at the Sandpiper!!! You won't be disappointed.
