lodginglodging reservations in Shelter Cove

Along the rugged lower Humboldt Coast, Point Delgado is Shelter Cover California. This lil seaside community is right in the middle of the infamous Lost Coast of Northern California. One narrow paved road leads thru redwoods, due east to Redway & Garberville. Usal Road, a long dirt roads leads north from Hwy 101 (just as it curves away from coast). ShelterCove is retirement homes perched on steep hillsides of forested terrain, overlooking the Pacific ocean. The cove is rugged & the small marina survives with fishermen & pulling boats onshore with a tractor. (aka Whitethorn, CA)

    Very rural residental area on steep hillside with lush forest & redwoods nearby. Steep cliffs and black sand beaches will have you in awe, if you can find this destination on a sunny day. Fog is very common. Plenty backpacking and camping up or down the coast.
