Inn: Former Northern California “palace” of the Parke family.
  
This grand old home with spectacular ocean view was built in 1897 for James and Laura Parke.  The 10,750 square foot mansion remains the epitome of elegance, luxury and intimacy - keeping the authentic, turn-of-the-century features that make it unique.
  
Accommodations: 
13 rooms in the Main House and 6 rooms in the Carriage House overlooking courtyard, fountain and pond.  One of the rooms is furnished with famous costume designer Edith Head’s bedroom ensemble.  Other rooms are decorated with authentic museum quality antiques.  Some rooms have a spectacular view of the waves crashing against the rocks, and/or a wood burning fireplace.
  
Features:
Landscaped enclosed courtyard for sunbathing.  Watch whales, sea otters and sailboat races from parlor or sitting rooms.  View vintage cars from the owners collection.  Enjoy spa, game room, and the 1890’s oak pool table.
  
Breakfast and afternoon wine and hors d’oeuvres served in the dining room on the finest Victorian china, antique Sheffield silver, and cut crystal.
