This is a wonderfully romantic getaway. Our room had a fireplace and a hot tub on the patio with a beautiful view of the ocean. The one thing I wish I had known was you need to bring EVERYTHING if you want to BBQ there. The little store across the street has limited items (not even magazines) and nothing to BBQ except freeze dried chicken/steak. They also close at 5pm. The managers were a bit misleading about the closest dining. They said you had to drive the 13 miles South to Jenner; very windy, foggy drive; however, we discovered (the next day) you can drive about 5 minutes north to The Sea Ranch Lodge which has a better restaurant (called Alexander's) a much smoother/shorter drive. Don't know why management would tell you this unless it's a competition thing. The food at the River's End in Jenner was very weird to us "meat and potato" folks (duck, oysters, etc.) and very pricey! Alexander's food was exceptional and much more to our liking, as well as less expensive! This is a beautiful stay but just be prepared!
