Each of our six individually decorated rooms, named after a famous surfing spot in the area, has its own unique style.
South of Devil's Slide, the first major beach break is Montara Beach, which is less than a mile of open beach that faces directly into the Gulf of Alaska and takes a constant hammering from swell, wind, tide, fog and everything else the Pacific Ocean can throw. The good news is the south winds that accompany fog and/or rain in this region blow straight offshore at Montara, so on those summer days when San Francisco's beachbreaks are gray, blown-out and infinitely uninviting, Montara can be smooth and sweet, albeit a bit chilly. During the winter, Montara ranges from deadly to excellent, depending on the bottom contour and swell direction. Many times whales can be seen, perhaps enjoying nature's jacuzzi.
What makes the Montara 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.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Inn at Maverick's. We managed to schedule our trip through a pretty heavy wind/rainstorm, but it was actually kinda nice to just kick back in the room and watch the waves roll in and listen to the rain come down. The room was nice and pretty recently renovated. Everything looks new. We had a great view and there were just some thoughtful things like a free snack basket that was nice to see after a long day of driving. Stephen really took care of us and I'd say went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure we enjoyed our stay. It's a beautiful little getaway in Half Moon Bay and the price is reasonable. We'll definitely go back again and stay a bit longer next time..
