This was our first trip to Shelter Cove and the Spyglass Inn was fantastic. Our room was spacious, clean and had an incredible view.

The Spyglass Inn is absolutely wonderful! My boyfriend and I stayed there for 3 nights while visiting the redwood forests and the Lost Coast. The owners were welcoming and sweet, very personal and attentive. They made reservations for us at a great seafood restaurant down the street and suggested some nearby hikes. The room was clean and comfortable with up-to-date...

The suite was everything we hoped for. Bring your own food as there are not any grocery stores or restaurants. The host has a gas grill and the kitchen...

We really liked our stay here. The owners are nice and accommodating. The view is spectacular, and the beaches around there are great for whale and seal watching. The full kitchen was also great, especially since there were no open restaurants when we stayed there.

What a night to remember! The Spyglass Inn @ Shelter Cove is the most pristine place we have stay in years. The Inn keepers Richard and Margaret were so attentive to our every need. The view and surroundings are breath taking, such a relaxing place to be.
