“Prefect Getaway!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2013

My husband, our eight year old daughter and I stayed at this BEAUTIFUL Inn March 2013. We made the choice to stay here after watching the uTube video showcasing the rooms and the beautiful views. We are so glad we decided to stay here. It was absolutely beautiful! The room was CLEAN, the views were spectacular and it was extremely quiet and peaceful. Everything was thoughtfully in place to make our stay very comfortable, yet our gracious hosts made themselves available at anytime for any reason to accommodate any needs. The highlight of our stay was sitting on the back porch right outside our room and watching the whales migrate north. We highly recommend this Inn and look forward to going back.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Dolphin Suite.

We went to celebrate our one year anniversary and it was an EXCEPTIONAL experience! The inn keepers are wonderful people and the locations and room was absolutely stunning. We could have stayed inside all day, but I'm glad we got out to explore this tiny treasure of a town. The shelter cove community is incredibly hospitable and the scenery is simply breath taking. We can't wait to go back next year!

My wife and I stayed at the Spyglass Inn at Shelter Cove this weekend.
Our visit was really, really nice. When we booked the room I was concerned that the reality of what we found when we got there would match not only the Inn's website depiction of the property but our own expectations.....it was better!!
The view from our room (Spyglass) was awesome. My wife and I watched the sunset the first night from The Cove restaurant. Richard and Margaret made our reservations for us for dinner and we had a window table to watch a beautiful sunset happen while we dined.
The town is peaceful and people are very friendly. We enjoyed the peace and quiet and explored Black Sands Beach as well as some of the tide pools near the Lighthouse.
Richard and Margaret were very nice hosts and when asked if there was anything else we needed they provided it (playing cards, binoculars, blender).
The kitchen was furnished with all the things needed. Room was very very clean. I felt like we were the first people to ever use the room.
Bottom line.......It was worth every penny we spent to stay here and I would definitely be interested in staying here again and also referring it to my friends and family.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Spyglass room and loved it!!

Enjoyed another stay here at Spyglass. Believe this was our 4th visit. We love it. Worth the 4+hour drive (which is beautiful) from the Bay Area.
THE CLEANEST PLACE WE HAVE EVER STAYED. Richard and Margaret's eye for detail is unmatched. Hospitality is amazing. We truly enjoy seeing them every time.
If you are even thinking about coming here for the first time......dont hesitate! Pick up the phone and make your reservation.
The accomodations, the view, the privacy, the wildlife, the serenity.......truly the best.

We visited Shelter Cove and The Spyglass Inn over the Christmas holiday, and it was an exquisite experience. The view from our suite was heavenly. The suite, itself, was pristine in its cleanliness, and couldn't have been better equipped. The full kitchen was a cook's delight. The bathroom was beautifully thought out, with a excellent water pressure and no shortage of hot water. We loved relaxing in the hot tub, with the fireplace roaring and the ocean roiling below. It's obvious that Margaret and Richard put so much care into the design and detail of this exceptional getaway. Just outside of our patio (we stayed in the Dolphin Suite), we watched as the deer made their evening promenade grazing along the edge of the cormorant dusted cliffside.
As for the hospitality, both my boyfriend and I appreciate privacy, and it was unquestionably honored by the innkeepers, Richard and Margaret. Marvelously, they are able to straddle the line of providing us with complete hospitality, while allowing us the opportunity to enjoy the solitude and peace that Shelter Cove provides. As a Bay Area native and a relatively seasoned Northern California traveler, I can say that the coastline (a five-minute walk to the Black Sands Beach) and the access to largely untouched California Redwood wilderness is unparalleled.

My sister, mom and I stayed at Spyglass Inn for 4 days and 3 nights. In the morning, we wake up to the sound of the ocean as the sun rises in the horizon. In the evening we watch the sunset on our balcony with a glass of cabernet to end a wonderful day. Richard and Margaret were excellent hosts.

Everything about this place is beyond EXCELLENT. Its a "home sweet home" feel like as you walk in your room. The room is spectacularly clean complete with living room, kitchen, silverwares, plates, kitchen stuff. Did I say the view was amazing! The entire property was clean and very well managed. Wi-Fi is available if you can't stop looking at your smartphones or laptop. Thank you Robert and Margaret for a wonderful experince. We will be back.

Had a wonderful five days at this excellent inn. Quality materials and fixtures; great mattress; great water pressure; beautiful view of the ocean; a five-minute walk from the southern end of incredible Black Sands Beach. Also a two-minute walk from the town's new pizza place and bakery, which was delicious. Thoughtful touches throughout like individually set combination locks on the doors, so no keys to fumble with or forget. Fast wireless Internet connection. Coffee maker, full refrigerator, microwave, toaster. Owner Richard is a pleasure to deal with and an amazingly gracious and thoughtful host. On a sunny day, the drive to Ferndale is INSANELY beautiful. Likewise the Sinkyone Wilderness area. Jaw-dropping views of the sea.
