Fodor's Review

Perched on a bluff above pounding surf and a driftwood-strewn beach, this property has stunning views from most rooms. The most romantic accommodations are in the pretty, antiquey cottage buildings, where each room is unique but all have peaked ceilings and hardwood floors. A newer Arts-and-Crafts-style building houses suites ($375–$395) with a more modern feel (including Jacuzzi tubs). All rooms include a lavish champagne breakfast in the main house as well as afternoon hors d'oeuvres with wine and cocktails. Spa treatments take place one at a time in a private building with a view of the ocean. If you want a massage, book early; the calendar is often full. With its quiet setting and high cliffs the inn is not ideal for young children; inquire by phone before booking.
