    Wonderful place to stay near Redwood National Park. Beautiful ocean view from our room. Woke up to the sound of sea lions. Amazing included dinner and breakfast. Very kind staff took care of all our needs and then some.

    Hi, is this place pet friendly? The wife and I are traveling with our 5 lb. pomeranian. I can't find anything here that mentions pets...? Thanks in advance!

    The owner has a dog that roams the property, but I don't recall if I saw the dog inside the house

    I believe that all rooms are non smoking. You can smoke outside.

    I was looking at a site that discussed the average weather there and it looks like the average high there is around mid-high 60's for the summer months...does that sound correct? My husband would love this and I am really trying to surprise him. He prefers it to be cooler. I still like to hike and walk the beaches so we are trying to find a happy medium. Most importantly we like to see animals. Any suggestions for the best time of year to come?
