My wife and I have been coming to the Albion River Inn for over 28 years. Our first visit did not find the Inn as it looks today. Our first visit was to the restaurant which found us playing pool in a back room while the owner started a fire to warm up the place. Today I still miss that pool table. Today, you will find the restaurant a very warm and welcome place with a jaw dropping view of the ocean waves braking on the cliffs below. You will also find a "James Beard" award winning chief and a menu to match. It is very difficult not to enjoy a meal here.
Over the years we have seem the Inn grow into what you see today. The owner is hands-on daily and very demanding of the experience he wants you have when you stay here. The rooms are individual small buildings over looking the ocean and bay from a cliff. They are quite modern. Each with a fireplace, excellent bath that is autoclave clean and bedding that will guarantee a wonderful night's sleep. Another thing you will experience is a very professional and friendly staff. I accidentally left my iPad. They called and said it would be mailed to me. It arrived at my house the day after i returned home!
What you will not see is the continuous up-grading of the landscaping and maintenance of the infrastructure. The owner is very demanding that each guest have a wonderful and memorable experience at the Albion River Inn. One thing I didn't know about the restaurant was there is a massive assortment of Scotch whiskey. I believe over 100(?) examples. I am not a Scotch drinker.
If you are in this area, you will be well served by staying here
