Atmospheric chill and a warm inn on the coast

Moss Beach, CA, United States
0 Kudos
We needed a quick getaway from the big city and we found the perfect place! Seal Cove Inn is right off Highway 1, about 30 minutes south of San Francisco in the town of Moss Beach. We arrived on a rainy afternoon, and the wind howled most of the evening—the sea was a sight, blowing foam up and across the waves. The inn is surely lovely in good weather too, but when it’s gloomy out, you cannot resist the call of the warm fire in the living room (where you’ll also be served wine, if you’re there for Kevin’s wine hour). Plan some time for breakfast; the dining room looks out over a pretty garden, and the food is tasty (and generously portioned)—enough to fill you up before you start exploring the local trails.
