Lovers of nature and adventure don’t have to go very far to encounter unspoiled nature. Just 3 ½ hours north of San Francisco,is a 2,000 acre private preserve with over a mile of coastline and 20 miles of trails along the coast and through the hills. Tour this unique lodging property on foot, by horseback, or with a guide on an ATV. Explore Redwood forests and maybe even spot an elusive elk, mountain lion or bear.
Eighty-five species of birds have been spotted on the ranch. Birders will enjoy strolling the sunlit coastal prairie in a rainbow of colors to look for great blue herons, swallows, thrushes, warblers and California quail. Watch for red tailed hawks, turkey vultures and golden eagles as they ride the air currents above. Along the coast you will often see ospreys, peregrine falcons, oyster catchers, pelicans and more during migration.
There are 50-mile panoramic views from carefully sited picnic tables on the edge of the continent, the better to watch migrating orca, humpback, blue and grey whales as well as seals, sea lions and an occasional otter. The grey whales are most abundant, and can be seen year-round.
The Inn itself is a cozy refuge that is nonetheless as grand as the land that surrounds it. Each of the distinctly different rooms incorporate unique furnishings, art and architectural elements that help bring the outside inside to echo and honor the environment and the North Coast!
It’s a perfect spot for weddings, conferences, artists, photographers and for those who just want to get away and commune with nature.
