Start your morning with a continental breakfast on your balcony. (A complimentary continental breakfast is available in the lobby.) Watch the birds, deer and mammals start their day, as you plan yours. After your leisurely start, wander across the road to the Coastal Trail. This ocean-side path is ideal for feet and wheels.

All rooms have conveniences such as sitting areas, refrigerators, complimentary Wi-Fi, microwaves, coffee makers, iron and ironing board. Toiletries and hairdryers are offered in the bath.

Rooms with soaking tubs, fireplaces and a view of the estuary are in demand and very romantic. The estuary changes throughout the day. Migrating water fowl come and go, taking a rest from their travels. Local birds fish and hunt here all year long. It’s a charming and ever-changing vista.

Most rooms have a private balcony and views of the estuary or a partial view of the ocean. You can choose from one king-size or two queen-size beds per room. Some rooms include a soaking tub and fireplace. Prices vary according to room type and season, but range from 109 USD to 149 USD per night in the winter.

A quick 5-minute walk across Highway One and you are on the beach under the old Haul Road Train Trestle and current Haul Road Trail. This trail leads north to MacKerricher State Park along the headlands. Head south and you are on the Fort Bragg Coastal Trail leading to Glass Beach, the old Georgia Pacific Mill Site, the old mill ponds (now sanctuary for birds, mammals, amphibians and fish) and the once-busy Soldier Bay.

The Skunk Train is a vintage steam engine train that makes excursions into the redwoods. Many different types of trips are available including picnics, barbeques, entertainment specials and holiday specials.

Fort Bragg is small, so nothing is very far away, but shops and restaurants are within a short walk or a 5-minute drive.
