Why We Like This Place

Poised on an ocean bluff, the Monarch Cove Inn looks out onto a breathtaking curve of forested shoreline. Yet the enviable location of this dove-colored Victorian is only part of its allure. Originally built in 1895, today the Inn delights guests with its informal English garden, spectacular sunsets and refreshing sea breezes.

Continental breakfast is brought to your room each morning, so you can take your time before deciding which of the local activities you’d like to explore. Lodging includes spacious suites and private cottages, some with a hot tub and fireplace, all with dynamic views. One thing is certain: whatever room is yours for the night, the Inn will make you feel at home.
