We love the ambience of this place. We've been regular guests (8 times over the course of 14 years) and we've stayed in the Silvermist, the Bath Suite, and the Country French Suite rooms.
We live in the Bay Area and find it difficult to "unplug" from all the stimulation that exists in our world today (cell phones, emails, work, etc.). We come to the Whale Watch Inn to celebrate our anniversary and it doesn't take long after arriving to find ourselves focused on what is really important again.
When staying at the Whale Watch Inn you can recharge your batteries, take naps, go for walks on the beach, enjoy the fireplace and the hot tub, and make your relationship with your partner the most important thing on your list of stuff to do for the day.
The rooms are always immaculate; even when you leave your room late the staff will still go in and tidy up, put up fresh towels, get new firewood and bubble bath for you. The breakfasts are delicious and unique, something different each day you stay there. They have fresh flowers in the room and on the grounds which are a wonderful to look at . . . and they have a lovely cheese/wine/fruit/cracker tray that is perfect for enjoying while soaking in the two person hot tub.
We like to imagine that all the people who have come to the Whale Watch Inn have left their positive and loving energy behind for everyone to enjoy; you have only to read the many passages written in the diaries each room has kept over the years to know what an amazing place the owners have created. We laugh at the passages we wrote so many years ago when we first found this place and trace the path of our lives and relationship through these diaries each year when we return.
