Whether visiting for dinner, or stealing away for the night, it’s an ideal Northern California Wine Country retreat. This seaside destination is a place to relax and breathe in brisk, salty air – a short scenic drive from most San Francisco Bay Area cities.

A majority of the first floor rooms have private patios, where guests often catch a glimpse of deer and other wildlife scampering throughout the grounds.
