Picture yourself sitting out on your private room deck overlooking a sweeping ocean vista of majestic offshore rocks at the enchanting Turtle Rocks Oceanfront Inn, on the North Coast of Northern California.

The inn is the closest oceanfront lodging to Eureka, only 25 minutes drive north, but a magnificent land apart where forested mountains meet a dramatic coastline of rocky coves, huge headlands and offshore rocks.

The bright, straightforward rooms have private bathrooms, contemporary furniture, WiFi and private glass-paneled decks with panoramic view of the ocean and the offshore Turtle Rocks and sea lion colony. There are additional communal decks for guests, including a 2-tier whale watching area with rocking chairs and chaises lounges. A full gourmet breakfast buffet including homemade hot dishes is served each morning, as well as an afternoon desserts buffet. Self-service soft drinks, tea/coffee and snacks are available throughout the day.

Off Route 101, this laid-back 3-acre retreat is 1.1 miles from Patricks Point State Park, 5.4 miles from Big Lagoon and 14 miles from Redwood National Park in Humboldt County (just north of Mendocino County), the southern gateway for vacation travel to the Pacific Northwest.
