The stay was as beautiful as the view! A review of Cottage Inn by the Sea
When my fiancée and I first discovered The Cottage Inn by the Sea we were impressed by the comfort and furnishings of our room. All the rooms are non-smoking, and have an old world motif with all of the modern amenities! Since we opted for the slightly more economical lodgings with a non-Ocean view Debbie, who checked us in, chose her personal favorite from the available rooms. Our room had a high ceiling, and added to the sense of an already spacious living space. The hotel provides a continental breakfast which adds to the value with cheer! I under each room has a gas fireplace. this casts a wonderful spell upon the cold and weary traveler looking for "One of the most beautiful places on the entire California Coast". I quoted a retired couple we met. They were former residents who wondered aloud why they ever chose to move away, this spoken as they lounged in front of their Ocean view room taking it all in! Only steps away from the hotel's property awaits a staircase that descends the sandstone cliffs, and offers a view equally breathtaking to the hike! I was so enamored by my experience that within weeks of my stay I brought my eighty-one year old mother to share, and for me to revisit. She'd honeymooned with my Father in this area back in the early 1960's. I was grateful for a special care a young staff member named Erin performed that I shall not forget. While I was away, my mother needed help. Erin brought a lemon lime soda directly to the room to help with my mother's upset stomach!! I have just reserved a room for tomorrow, which will make this my 3rd stay! The hotel is a precious gem situated upon it's rare setting, and is worth a special trip, and is a place worth staying!!
