“Can't wait to go back!”
Reviewed 30 October 2012

We stayed in Cabin 3 with a private hot tub. The cabin was awesome! Everything was clean and modern. The furniture was new, the hot tub was new (and very very clean). I can't say enough about how great the cabin was. It had a full kitchen with a smaller (gas) stove, toaster, microwave, pans, dishes, full size coffee maker, napkins, paper towels, butcher knives, etc. A few spices would have been nice, although they did have salt and pepper. We brought steaks to BBQ and were given a nice gas BBQ to use at our cabin. The bed was comfortable, but I would have liked a little firmer mattress and a larger bed. I'm used to a King. But, nothing to complain about. The hot tub was in a private enclosed area adjacent to the cabin and there were extra towels and also a CD player and radio. It had a deck with a view of the ocean. It was quiet and private. We had a great time and will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Cabin 3 very modern and clean. Perfect for 2. TV is nice, WIFI signal good. Great deck.

We stayed here four nights while on our Redwood forest trip. Good location for state parks along coast; 15 minute drive to most Redwood National Park areas (but there's not many places to stay in or near the park). Short drive to Trinidad coast and restaurants. Very clean. Excellent ocean view from cabin #2. Spacious kitchen. Furniture and decor a little older and not as comfortable of a bed as we had expected. But, overall, it was a very good stay. Nothing beats having breakfast and dinner on the porch overlooking the ocean.

Room Tip: Cabin #2 has a great view.

We stayed one night in 1B....a very foggy night, felt a little eerie in the middle of the countryside. The setting was nice, service was ok, our cabin was less so.....mostly just an aging property that could do with a few small touches (carpets and rugs cleaned, bathroom re-caulked).

We stayed in cottage 10 for two days. It was clean, comfortable, and supplied everything we needed for cooking our meals. This particular cottage looked as if it had been newly remodeled.
I also liked the fact that it had a nice deck that didn't face all of the other decks which led to some privacy. Very cute.

We had a wonderful stay here. Our cabin was the perfect size for my husband and I. It has a full kitchen and fridge, a bedroom with a comfortable queen bed and a bathroom. It also has a little living room area with a love seat and a recliner (and a flat screen TV with cable). Great internet coverage. Just outside the front door is a nice porch...then a big lawn with a picnic table. We enjoyed some wine out there looking at the ocean, the sun setting and listening to the seals barking on the rocks below in the ocean. While there is not a full ocean view, there is an ocean view. We'd stay here again!

We stayed in room 1A and were pleasantly surprised. The pictures don't lie, you get a desk, sofa and a comfortable queen bed. There's also a sink with soap, sponge and towels furnished, microwave, coffee machine, not to mention basic dinnerware. It was perfect for our 2 night stay since we had leftovers from the day before and went to Larrupin the second night. We enjoyed our dinner on the deck, listening to the sea lions. Hummingbirds and jays were all over the place. A Steller's Jay came up to the door one morning and screamed for a while. I guess other guests gave it some food in the past. That was a funny alarm call but people, feeding wildlife is not good for the animals!!

Everything is very clean and cozy. The shower door showed dirt, mold and rust in the corner but I've been to more expensive places where it was the same and I know it's a pain in the neck to keep perfect.

The lodge is very close to the magnificent Patrick's Point State Park and has easy access to the restaurants, deli or casino.

It's absolutely beautiful and well maintained. I had called to make a reservation, I didn't receive an email confirmation so I was a little worried that there was a confusion but everything went fine.

We paid $109 per night during the weekend, which is very reasonable. We would come back in a heartbeat.

Nice clean place, with very helpful staff. Very quiet. We stayed in #8 which is huge (Sleeps 6), but right on the road. It also has a full kitchen and 2 baths, living room with flat screen, cable etc.
Unfortunately the ocean is across the street and down the hill, and only accessible from those pricier joints located there. We snuck through the competition's property and caught the sunset, and barking sea lions. If you can afford the Whale or Turtle, I think the view alone is worth the extra$.

Room Tip: try up the hill away from the road
