Come Experience Breathtaking

"Great location and we were able to walk everywhere! - to restaurants, the beach, found sand dollars, saw sea otters, and the views from our rooms was beautiful!" — Facebook Review, Mary Ellen S.

This isn't quite a home away from home.
It's even better!

Unwind in our fishing village, beach walk, shopping, fine dining. Take Elkhorn Slough Safari for sea otters and birds or go whale watching. Wonderful sunsets. Pampering massage.
