Each of our six individually decorated rooms, named after a famous surfing spot in the area, has its own unique style.
Mind blowing. Explosive…These are some of the adjectives used to describe the most famous big wave break on the continental United States. Mavericks offers an e-ticket ride for those who have the nerve to paddle the half-mile out to an ethereal reef spot just off Pillar Point. Discovered by famed surfer Jeff Clark and ridden solo over the ensuing decade, Mavericks is a fickle spot that really only works when the swell comes from the northwest, at high tide, and with no or offshore winds. The wave needs caressing by nature, and can go from good to bad in less than an hour. In 2007 one of the largest waves purportedly reached 100 feet, although it mostly breaks anywhere from 15 to 45 feet. These are not waves to tease but to simply ride straight and hard to safety. Most take the right, which has three separate bowls that collapse on the surfer but which ultimately exits to safety.
What makes the Mavericks 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.
Inn at Mavericks seems to be a popular place to go for anniversaries - my husband surprised me with a getaway here for our first wedding anniversary! Arrival was nice - pick up an envelope with your room number on it, then go to your room and unlock the door. Much nicer than having to hassle with an office, juggle bags and credit cards.. none of that. The room was cozy, but very spacious! The room included a super comfy king sized bed, gas fireplace, flat screen TV, table and chairs for dining, complimentary snacks and water, complimentary wine and champagne (we dont drink, though.) chocolates (which we did enjoy to the fullest!) nice big patio, a full ocean view, and a very nice bathroom. The view was FABULOUS. Clear water as far as the eye can see, cute little boats, complete with salty sea air and the fog horn (I kind of liked it. ) was quite refreshing. Check out was equally as pleasant - lock the door behind you and hang your key up. So nice. We had an amazing stay. Thank you Inn at Mavericks!
