Pros: Convient to all points of interest
Cons: Could use microwave and chest of drawers in room
Location: Excellent center point for area siteseeing.
Close to San Francisco so we were able to travel both North to the city and NAPA Valley, and South to 17 mile highway and Carmel. Seahorse ranch (nearby) provided excellent beach horseback excusion.

Very nice and comfortable inn

Posted 08-Mar-2016
Pros: The room, the common areas, the gardens.
Cons: The breakfast could be improved. It would be nice to have eggs other than hardboiled and hot coffee and tea at the table.
Location: Many beautiful hikes along the cliffs and in the hills. Close to the charming Half Moon Bay.
We had a lovely and very clean, very quiet garden room. The staff was very pleasant. The inn is near the beach and several beautiful hikes.

A very nice getaway on the ocean.

Posted 16-Feb-2016
Pros: The location, the peacefulness and the service were wonderful.
My fiance and I spent Valentine's weekend there and we really enjoyed it. It's a very romantic spot with trails along the ocean and a couple of restaurants nearby. It's safe and the room is very cozy.

Relaxing, beautiful setting near the beach

Posted 15-Feb-2016
We stayed overnight at the Seal Cove Inn. Lovely and comfortable, we had a nice walk to the tide pools in the morning before a delicious breakfast in our room. We are returning for two nights next month!

Great respite after a long flight.

Posted 17-Oct-2015 on Hotels
Kevin was very helpful by providing local information and personally showing us the grounds.Debbie was such a good hostess for our breakfast and homemade goodies. Wine hour, hosted by Kevin, was a great time to meet other guests. Very cozy environment with only 10 rooms. Lovely walk to ocean to see the seals sunning themselves. Close to many restaurants and marina. Enjoyed our stay.

Fabulous respit

We've never had a better experience at a bed and breakfast. The three course breakfast is something out of a culinary book. Location is beautifully nestled near the marine reserve, a short walk from the inn.
