My husband and I had planned on driving from BC Canada down the Oregon coast down to San Francisco. Our stay at the Spyglass in was by far the highlight of our trip. Richard and Margaret were the perfect hosts. The room was excellent and the view is spectacular. We found ourselves extremely relaxed (also very sad to leave) by...

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.

This was our "lucky" 13th visit to the cove. We keep coming back for the view, the serenity, the people, the tidepools, and the hosts. Thanksgiving weather was not to be missed....70s and sunny all weekend, with most of our time spent walking or on the patio sipping wine and watching the deer. What I love about Spyglass suites are...

This is the 3rd time we've visited Shelter Cove and stayed at the Spyglass Inn. We just got married and wanted to extend our honeymoon and decided that it would be perfect to spend that here! Richard and Margaret, as always, are great! The town is great too! We usually take a walk in the morning and are greeted by...

Our son introduced us to the Lost Coast via his camping trip to Sinkyone, so when the government shutdown made our reservations at the inn in Yosemite moot, we knew where we were headed. But where to say? When in extremis go with the best, I remembered. So we did, and Spyglass Inn proved to be just that. Richard and...

This place is incredible! The road to the inn will seem a bit daunting. Very up and down with lots of twists and turn, but soooo worth the hassle to get there. Richard and Margaret (innkeepers/owners) are so warm and welcoming! They truly want your experience to be perfect. The "condos" are impeccable and tastefully decorated with all the comforts...

My husband and I stayed for two nights this week at the Spyglass Inn. From the phone reservation with Margaret to our final goodbye with Richard (the couple who owns/runs the Inn), we just had a lovely experience! We stayed in the Spyglass Suite. I have to state this upfront: this suite was absolutely immaculate! I am a stickler for...
