A Pacific coast retreat that puts a sleek, modern twist on rustic charm without forgetting its mid-century heritage

In the midst of 400 wineries lies Timber Cove, an oceanside hotel with a rustic-chic aesthetic, reached via an emblematically beautiful winding coastal road. Crafted largely out of redwood timber, this hotel complements its rugged, Pacific coast setting seamlessly and provides the perfect base from which to explore one of California’s most beautiful coastlines.
Rooms are charming but contemporary – think sleek Scandi-style with a retro Cali twist. Each room comes complete with a freestanding fireplace and its own Crosby record player – head to reception for their range of vintage vinyl. And when night draws in, fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves from your ocean or forest view room, all featuring local artwork, earth-toned furnishings and impossibly comfortable king-sized beds. For something extra special, upgrade your room to a premium suite for a separate living room that comes complete with a Smeg fridge and a complimentary bottle of Fort Ross Pinot Noir. Enjoy a sundowner on your private balcony or on the sleek, grey outdoor furnishings alongside firepits and cosy chairs.
Don't miss the onsite restaurant, Coast Kitchen, for organic, locally-sourced farm-to-table dishes. Expect seasonally inspired menus, crisp presentation and, just in case you’re yet to have your fill of the local vineyard hype, knowledgeable staff on hand to pair any dish with Sonoma County wine – the scallops and flourless chocolate cake are particularly notable along with a glass of crisp white. Be sure to arrive before sunset, as the restaurant affords wonderful panoramic views of the setting sun amidst the rocky shorelines. Take breakfast in the cosy Outdoor Living Room and opt for the Cove Benedict – the perfect fuel for a day full of adventure. From guided hikes to wine tasting tours, personalised daily excursions are on offer to ensure that guests make the most of the surroundings, perfectly culminated with a drink in the cosy lobby by the fireplace.
