Each of our six individually decorated rooms, named after a famous surfing spot in the area, has its own unique style.
Located at the northern base of Pillar Point (the western most tracking station of the United States Air Force), Ross' Cove offers unprecedented surfing. On smaller days on a high tide, the left breaks along the point and moves outside as the swell increases in size. Once in the lineup, the immense currents can take you in either of three directions, none of which are good. Volkswagen-sized boulders underwater create mushroom eddy's that identify take-off points; they also are a reminder of the downside of getting caught inside, as your leash can easily trip over one of these rocks and leave you helpless during a set. Maverick's is clearly visible from the outside lineup, and must have been seen by hundreds of surfers, which makes you wonder how Maverick's managed to stay so empty until 1990.
What makes the Ross' Cove 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.
There is nothing more beautiful then waking up the morning after you just got married to sunshine and the calming waters of Half Moon Bay smack dab in front of you. I selected Inn @ Mavericks because this is exactly how I wanted to wake up - just married, with our bed facing the open sea, reflecting on how this is the first day of our married life together.
No other "hotel" could guarantee I'd have a room with a FULL ocean view - at Maverick's ocean views is all they've got.
We stayed in the Ross Cove room which was incredibly comfortable and had: a clean and updated large bathroom, mini-fridge, coffee maker, microwave, small fire place, love seat and chair, small table and an incredibly cute (but small) balcony with complimentary binoculars so you could see little sea lions peep their heads out of the Bay.
The bed, a King-size of pure comfort. Fresh duvet comforters, extra blankets, tons of pillows. I personally prefer queen size, but since I was so exhausted from our wedding reception, it didn't matter all that much.
As far as the foghorn, it really is an afterthought. You do get used to it because it's a softer sounding foghorn that you would find on your Sharper Image Sleep Soother alarm clock. It's NOT like a blaring Titanic foghorn. Plus the giant sliding glass doors are double paned and super thick but if you are super sensitive to sound, then bring some ear plugs just in case. Keep in mind though if you grew up in a suburban city next to a nearby airport like my husband and I did or if you live in a downtown area it's really not a problem - Inn @ Maverick's will be heaven for you.
In fact writing this review makes me want to go back there right now...I'll be back...
