The Tides Inn: the Place to Stay in Shelter Cove
EXPERIENCE THE BEAUTY
The Tides Inn of Shelter Cove is Northern California's own little piece of paradise. We are on the ocean; every room with an unbelievably beautiful ocean view. You can sit outside and watch the whales go by. Sometimes you can catch a glimpse of the moms and their babies. We have a family of sea otters right outside your door. They’re pretty fast little guys but once in a while it appears they are playing just for you. The tide pools below are choke-full of sea life. We had one family of guests that said they saw 53 sea stars in just one trip.
We face South in this little Cove paradise so you have a very good view of beautiful sunrises and even more beautiful sunsets. This is a great place to storm-watch. If you walk (or drive) down the road less than a mile from our door, you will see the waves hitting with tremendous power – sometimes splashing on the decks of the residents. During a storm it is not unusual to see the waves above some of the houses.
If paragliding is your thing, we have some of the most gorgeous, easily accessed hills around. You can soar for as long as you like. We hear the air-currents are just right.
We are just a short walk from the day-use airstrip. If you make a reservation with us and are planning to fly in to the Cove, if the weather prohibits landing here, you will not be charged for your cancellation. You can walk to the Inn and borrow a vehicle to go back to the airstrip to pick-up your luggage. Usually, you can borrow a vehicle from us to make short trips around Shelter Cove.
Bring your clubs, because we have a golf links course that has amazing views of the ocean. This is an honor system course run by the utility district of Shelter Cove. If you forget your clubs, the surf shop near-by has club rentals and everything else you’d need to play a round or two.
