Turtle Rocks Oceanfront Inn

3392 Patrick's Point Drive , Trinidad, CA 95570 USA (Show map)


Described by Fodor's "Northern California 2006" as "the best view in Trinidad and the builders have made the most of it", the Turtle Rocks was constructed in 1995. Very spacious, light and airy guest rooms with high/vaulted ceilings and banks of picture windows overlook a vast sweeping ocean view. The only inn in Trinidad with private room decks, walk out on your deck and look across the inn's three acres of landscaped grounds and flower and vegetable gardens and beyond to the magnificent offshore rocks and sea lion colony. Relax in your deck chairs, bathe in your oversized tub/shower, enjoy the quiet of your double-walled room, the luxurious comfort of your California king-size bed, and understand why Turtle Rocks was chosen in 1999 as one of "California's Best Bed and Breakfasts" by Fodor's Internationl Travel Publications. Sweeping ocean views from every guestroom. Three-acre oceanfront setting in wind-protected rocky cove with sea lion colony. Very spacious rooms each with private bath, glass-paneled private deck with seating, California king-size bed, cable TV, and private-line phone. Full breakfast buffet. Afternoon desserts, teas and coffee.
