4 Guest Rooms - 3 Suites - Oceanfront Home

The Main Inn Building has three guest-rooms on the second floor, each with a private bath. They all have access to the amazing 7-person hot tub on top of the water tower with views of the ocean and hills. Also, there is a modest second floor sun deck. The first floor living room, dining area, library, wrap-around Porch and terrace are all open to guests, as is the Newport room, which can seat 50 people for meals. At one end of this room is an intimate seating area in front of a 20 foot stone walk-in fireplace, which you can actually sit in. Located on the lower level of the Main Inn is our recreation room. Guests can enjoy a 60" television screen, dartboard, game table and complimentary wireless printing. All of these communal rooms offer a variety of spaces to curl up with a book or have a quiet conversation.

The Redwood House has three suites, each with unique architecture. There are 24 redwood trees holding up the structure, starting from the conference room and The Fireside Spa in the lower level and rising up through the different rooms to the roof. All three suites have a living room, dining area, kitchen, fireplace, deck, outdoor grill, hot tub or outdoor soaking tub, views of the ocean, TV and Internet service.

Sea Drum is the owners’ ocean side vacation home designed by the same architects as the Newport Inn buildings. Many have said that Sea Drum’s ocean views are among the best on the coast. The house is a visual delight. Offshore, there are huge rock formations with blow holes and when they are active, they sound like drums, thus the name, Sea Drum.
