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.
The best quick weekend getaway hotel we could hope for. Absolutely beautiful room with a fantastic view.It even started off amazing. Allan called us the day we were scheduled to arrive and told us our room was ready by noon, when they usually don't allow check-in until 3PM. I've never ever had a hotel do that, and even though we didn't make it there till after three, I would have loved another 3 hours there. They keep a 'journal' in each room for the guests to write in, and the things the previous guests wrote were absolutely stunningly beautiful. I guess I should not have been surprised, but over half of their guests are from the local area. If you live here, I cannot recommend this highly enough. This was our first time, but we'll be back many, many times.
