“Wonderful...Restful stay”
Reviewed 14 April 2008

My husband and I stayed two nights at Seal Cove Inn the end of March. We couldn't have asked for better weather. The Inn's gardens are lovely and removed from the hustle, bustle of Hwy 1. You feel like you're farther away from the hubub than you really are. Great place that we'll be sure to visit again.

We stayed here for a night at the end of March because we wanted to get away for a day from our normal lives. The first thing i noticed about this place is how beautiful the landscape is here. Really well maintained. Although not directly on the beach or water, it is a short 5 minute walk to the end of the road and you are there. The tide pools were interesting.

One thing that impressed me about the inn was that the rooms were pretty soundproof. The only thing i ever heard was the occasional door being shut from other rooms in the hallway, but i never heard anyone in the rooms on either side of us. That is a big plus to me.

I wish i could give it 4 1/2 stars, but i guess if you want me to nitpick about something i'd have to say the breakfast (which was nice to have for free) was subpar at best. The bathroom could use a little re-model in the mid-range upper floor rooms as well. Beyond that, the inn is very, very nice. Great place to go if you want to be near nothing and just relax with nature.

On a side note as well - We ate at Mezza Luna an italian resturant for dinner nearby - excellent food for a decent price.

First time stay but definitely not the last. Secluded off the road and a quiet sanctuary. Large rooms with wonderful king beds and a wood burning fireplace in each room. Excellent service from the staff. Good advice given on good restaurants in the area and they made reservations for us. The sitting area is comfortable with a huge fireplace. The breakfast is first rate. Can't wait to return.

Spent three nights at the Seal Cove Inn, beginning Valentine's Day. Room was beautifully appointed, large, comfortable and clean. Complimentary beverages in fridge, fireplace, kingsize bed! Grounds beautiful and close to a wonderful nature reserve with--yes--seals lounging on the rocks. Proved a great jumping off point for day trips to San Francisco, Palo Alto, and Big Basin Redwood Park. Daily breakfasts and appetizers in the afternoon were delicious and the staff was friendly and accomodating. I would go back in a heartbeat!

Stayed only two days, but were impressed by the 10 to 20 large seals on the beach after a nice walk through the forest. One time they were all lying down, when apparently one of them hollered, "Fish!" or something, and they all headed for the water at top speed. (Actually, we don't understand seal well enough to know who said what.)
The B & B atmosphere was excellent, with New England decor, great breakfasts, and staff so courteous, enthusiastic, and attentive that we would go back in a minute.

  • Liked — Seals. Walks. Staff. Decor. Breakfasts.
  • Disliked — Didn't stay long enough.
