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.
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!
