My 11 yr old son and I stayed here for two nights over the Labor Day weekend. We arrrived before check in, but they had just finished cleaning our room, so we were able to get settled. Our room had a sliding glass door out to the patio with a charcoal bbq and view of the ocean. The bed was comfortable and clean.
There was a wood burning fireplace (wood and fire starter provided), high arched ceiling, microwave, small fridge, direct TV, and DVD player. Bathroom was roomy, but bathtub/shower was black colored so hard to see if it was clean or dirty (it was clean, I just didn't like the color. Sheets were thin and towels were worn, and only two bath towels. The outdoor hot tub was nice in the evening, (ask for towels before you get in). The price was reasonable.
It is not in Jenner proper, it is about a 30 minute drive North of Jenner, and it is remote! The store across the street from the Lodge closes at 5 or 6:00 p.m.. There are no places to eat near the Lodge so be prepared to either have food on hand or drive up or down the coast to find a restaurant. There was only one place open in Jenner for dinner and it was booked solid, but they let us eat at the bar (River's End). The second night we at at the Blue Heron in Duncan Mills.
Nothing wrong with the Lodge, very nice. Next time we would probably stay in Duncan Mills or Bodega Bay just for the convenience of being closer to larger beaches and places to eat.
