Karen Brown's readers awarded us the "Most Romantic Inn" Award for 2009, recognizing Albion River Inn's cliff top location, spectacular ocean views, comfy yet elegant lodging, and acclaimed restaurant as the ideal romantic get-away! Hailed by Bon Appetit as “…one of the best to grace the golden state shore.” The restaurant and inn crown ten acres of ocean bluffs which Travel and Leisure magazine calls, “…a magnificent location in a precipice that drops dramatically to the canyon where the Albion River meets the sea.” The Albion River Inn’s twenty two spacious and private guest rooms are housed in New England style cottages with stunning ocean views. The rooms have fireplaces and private decks, abundant amenities such as robes, binoculars, wine, coffee and newspapers, and are individually decorated with an eye to elegant simplicity and comfort. Separate cottages with luxurious spa tubs with ocean views, and spacious guestrooms with large soaking "tubs for two: are available. A complimentary full breakfast is available each morning in our ocean view restaurant with a delightfully delicious menu. The Albion River Inn Restaurant is as famous for its food as it is for its view. Two window walls provide ocean views from all the tables, while a cozy brick fireplace brings a soft and romantic glow to the tastefully decorated interior. The menu showcases the coastal cuisine of acclaimed Cchef Stephen Smith, and celebrates California’s bounty of fresh seafood, meats, garden vegetables, and fruits. A selection of over 500 wines and 130 single-malts has earned the restaurant a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for 17 consecutive years.The knowledgeable and friendly staff makes every dining experience enjoyable.
