Stayed at this lovely and quaint little lodge this past Tuesday. About a half mile from beautiful Patrick's Point State Park. Staff was VERY friendly, our room was very clean and views of the ocean were so beautiful. Had a wonderful dinner in the town of Trinidad and when coming back driving down Patrick's Point Road, it was so easy...

This family-owned place, right on the coast, was the highlight of our 19-day Western road trip. The owners are friendly, and the cabins are spacious. The location is not to be beat. The Redwoods are a very special place, a blend of ocean, mountains, and of course, tall trees. When we come back this way - and we will --...

We didn't arrive until late but the room was really nice.. Had everything we needed for an overnight stay. We could hear the sea lions from our room which was cool. Very clean and cozy cabin would definitely stay there again. You could see the ocean in the distance which was also nice.

Our trip included 4 days/4 nights in and around the Redwood National & State Parks. We chose View Crest for a variety of reasons, including: location, cost, amenities (kitchen with eating area, 2 bedrooms - for privacy with 4 adults in our group), their website and photos of the cottages. This place was great! We fixed breakfast 3 out of...

We recently stayed here for 2 nighrs and I booked on expedia after doing some research. We drove down a winding road in the forest and it was nestled in the trees. I checked in and was greeted by the owner (I'm assuming) and he was very friendly and helpful telling me about things to do in the local area....

This lodge was in a beautiful area, near to both the ocean and the forest. It had a really nice, mountain cabin atmosphere. Our room was actually both a bedroom and a sitting room/kitchen. The extra space was very much appreciated and felt quite private. Our only complaint was a pretty uncomfortable bed with what felt like plastic under the...

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We truly appreciate all guest feedback. We are pleased you were able to enjoy this area and enjoyed the room. Regarding the plastic sheeting on the mattress, I think you must have been hearing/feeling the mattress protector. We replaced the one on that bed with a different type. Hopefully, this...
