Each of our six individually decorated rooms, named after a famous surfing spot in the area, has its own unique style.
About a mile south of Moss Beach Distillery and another half mile out lies a reef break known as Flat Rock, which lies on the edge of a steep underwater ravine. Getting to this spot takes courage and stamina. First there's the treacherous near free-falling drop down 100 foot sandstone cliffs, then the long reef-hopping hike through sea urchins and finally a short but vigorous paddle in shifting currents to a large, cumbersome rock that is both intimidating and refuge. Only the southern portion is truly surfable, which works best on west swells. The swells wrap around the rock creating a right that is both hollow and steep. You rarely see other surfers at this spot. It is a badge to even make it this far! However keep plenty of energy stored in your system, as the hike back to your car can be much worse on the body.
What makes the Flat Rock Guestroom so special…
Located in the quaint village of Princeton-by-the-Sea just minutes north of historic Half Moon Bay, you will find beachcombing, hiking, tidepooling, shopping, kayaking and oceanfront dining all within easy walking distance.
This was the most wonderful last minute getaway ever! The owner was so great to call me back with a cancellation shortly after telling me they were full up. The room was gorgeous and luxurious (I am still trying to find some pillows like those). From the no-hassle check in to the robes, the giant tub, the incredibly comfortable and huge bed, the fireplace, the amazing view when we woke up in the morning...all was just perfect. It may have even saved my life!
