We stopped at Shelter Cove on the way up the coast and loved this place. Check in was a breeze and the staff were very welcoming and cheerful. The room was clean and the lay out was like a regular hotel room, but with a vaulted ceiling (we were top floor) and a fabulous balcony overlooking the sea. There was a little basket of snacks and a note regarding the food options, which, during the week, are pretty slim. From the hotel we walked to the lighthouse station (great, knowledgeable staff) and then walked along the beach. There are FABULOUS tide pools there, seals on the rocks and, if you keep your eyes open, whales migrating by. As the on-site restaurant was closed, we drove to the pizza place in town and then walked along the sea cliffs while our order cooked. More great views! We ate looking out over the sea, watching the seals and checking for whales. Very relaxing and a great evening after a day hiking and tide pooling. We slept with the slider to the sea open, but at first light did have to close it, as those seals make noisy neighbors!
