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 Inn is just what Half Moon Bay needed. I recently stayed here and had such a relaxing weekend with the Inn being a highlight! It has an awesome fire pit for hanging out, keeping us warm on a foggy day. The rooms are very large, big enough for me, my husband and our 2yr. son, pack-n-play and all. Though probably better for a romantic getaway, we found our room was perfect with a toddler. It had a full microwave and mini fridge for kid food prep...we felt completely at home. The bathroom was lovely, big soaking tub! We also walked to dinner both nights from the Inn and went on an awesome hike Sat. at Pillar Point.Amazing weekend at the coast, we won't ever stay anywhere else when visiting HMB! We will be going back again and again.
