We were in the area for a wedding. Very friendly staff and great location! Point Arena and the rest of the coast are a very special part of this world!!! Farm land and coast all together. Magnificent!

Quiet and away from most traffics, this is an ideal location if you want to be away from the crowd and have some private time. Not much food options is the minus. Breakfast is included, continental style, not too much choices. Staff is very friendly. Adjacent to a fishing boat dock which is kind interesting by itself. Important, as if...

Thank you, RedRocksPhoto. We are glad you enjoyed our lovely hotel. Breakfast is FREE and we feel it's enough to get you started on what we imagine is a busy day full of adventure and exciting things to see and experience.

We sayed at the Warf Master's Inn in Point Arena, Ca., for 1-night in late Apr ($179). The inn is located 1 km past the tiny hamlet of Point Arena on a cove that once served as the town's port. There is not much in the cove (or the town itself, for that matter – only a small market, gas...

Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review. We often find it hard to respond to reviews that speak of the town and the local restaurants as limited or or small. There are soooo many things to see, do and experience in our hidden gem, but it's not always obvious to the weary traveler. We have...

As a newcomer to California's beautiful coast, I was delighted to stay at this hotel. The room I was in had a partial view of the ocean, and had a very funky Jacuzzi in the middle. The faucets could use a bit of TLC (and updating from the gold-plating), but overall I had a great experience. The DIY breakfast waffles...

I have stayed there before....Place is very nice, great amenities including a Jacuzzi tub, views of the beach from the room and deck.

This inn and location was the perfect choice for a quiet relaxing getaway. The inn is a cluster of quaint buildings located above the cove at Point Arena. The main home is historical and the others newer, but fit the locale with their wood exteriors. There is a pleasant garden seating area between and a series of wood stairs to...

We live a couple hours away in Lake County but this is always worth the drive to have a night or two away. The views are wonderful, the ocean just 30 yards away. A nice restaurant right on the ocean. Hiking starts right at the Inn. Small town but close to famous Lighthouse. Breakfast and coffee included. Quite and restful.
