As you can see from previous reviews, we've been to this hotel more than 15 times. The reasons are simple: first and foremost, the hosts....Richard and Margaret are so accommodating and pleasant. They truly make the visits memorable. Secondly, the suites....they are gorgeous. Well kept up, immaculately furnished, superiorly cleaned. We never tire of sitting in the hot tub, watching...

This Place is absolutely amazing and definitely worth the drive to Shelter Cove. The ;view from the deck is amazing and just listening to the waves crash against the rocks is so relaxing. The fireplace is really nice to sit and enjoy after being outside during the day in the cold ocean air. The room is well appointed, with all...

My wife and I stopped here for two nights at the end of a cross country trip. It was a great ending to a hectic road trip. Even though access from US-101 is via a "long and winding road", the end was worth it. The hosts are very welcoming and give you lots of information. The suite (we stayed in...

I spent a great weekend with my wife and 2 children at the Spyglass Inn on our way to Portland. The owners are very sweet and the view of the ocean from our balcony was simply mesmerizing. Just sitting there to stare at the ocean and the wild animals crossing the lawn was an amazing experience (the deer family got...

The owners Richard & Margaret were so amazingly delightful and attentive. I have never felt so welcomed & at home at a hotel/inn as I did here. The property is private, safe, very clean and the unobstructed view of the ocean is amazing! This is where I will stay the next time I visit.

My stay at the Spygalass Inn was perfect. Richard and Margaret are two of the nicest people and were attentive and very helpful. It was a joy to be around them. The inn is lovely, very comfortable with a lovely costal ambiance. My favorite part of the experience was the balcony. Being right over the ocean was heaven. I hope...
