Mia & Kevin,
Thank you for your wonderful hospitality. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Christopher brought me here as a surprise for my birthday. It was the most wonderful surprise. A beautiful ocean view and a cozy cottage. The cottage was comfortable and so nice. Point Arena was so beautiful. Listening to the ocean and rain as we fell asleep was so inspiring. Thank you for your kindness and wonderful breakfasts. We were full and satisfied to well past lunch time! The area is beautiful and the Coast Guard property is amazing. Thank you for the upgrade as well, we really appreciate it. We hope you have a wonderful holiday season.

Kevin & Mia,
Beautiful cottage! We wish we could have stayed longer & enjoyed your wonderful hospitality more. Hope to be back soon.

Mia & Kevin,
Thank you so much! Everything from the warm fire and charming cabin at our arrival to the delicious breakfasts, the relaxing sounds of the waves & wind & the gorgeous views made our weekend absolutely the perfect relaxing get away! We hiked to the lighthouse and all through the Stornetta Public Lands & even got to see the waterfall to the ocean. Can’t wait to return!
Jen & Mike
We had an absolutely wonderful and relaxing stay! Dinner was great at the Chowder House and the bath tub was amazing!! Everything was so clean and inviting. We slept so well and waking up to the sound of the waves was delightful. Thank you so much for the delicious breakfast and the wonderful stay! We will definitely be back again for a longer stay :)

Dear Kevin & Mia,
What a great get-a-way! This was celebrating or 1st Anniversary dating & Valentine’s Day! The last two days were so perfect, great weather, hiking, sleeping, time in the tub & great homemade breakfasts! Thanks for making us feel so at home in your historical cottage. What a great experience and memories!
Loved it here!
Kevin, MIA & WINSTON-
We skipped a year (last year) and what a bad idea that was! We quickly realized how much we missed you, The Coast Guard House and our favorite Cypress Cottage. Not much has changed and we had a beautiful, relaxing & fun weekend, thanks to you.
We’ll not go so long without visiting again. We loved the breakfasts and the Baja stories over damn good wine. Thank you!

We came seeking our annual “ocean fix” and found it perfectly at the Coast Guard House Inn! You have done a wonderful job at restoring and furnishing every aspect and thereby retaining a piece of California history for us to enjoy. Loved the stories, restaurant & activity tips and of course breakfast!
This will be kept in our hearts and memories as one of the best getaways from our inland demands we have taken.
Joseph & Laurie Chavoen, Wallace Ca
HAD AN AWESOME STAY! WE WANT TO BUY THE CABIN & NEVER LEAVE. LOVED THE JACUZZI TUB, PRACTICALLY CAN SWIM IN IT. THE BED IS SO COMFY. YOU ARE AN AWESOME COOK. LOVED, LOVED, LOVED BREAKFAST! WE WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK.
THANKS SO MUCH
JOHN & DESIREE
What a wonderful spot to drop anchor for a while. The cottage & food are wonderful but the Oatmeal Pancakes are out of this world! Thank you for feeding us so well & for letting us stop over in this comfortable cozy cottage.
Mike & Jean Bowers, Falls Church, Virginia
Our 2nd year in a row coming for Memorial Day and we could not be happier. The Coast Guard House does not disappoint! This is the most charming and relaxing B&B we have stayed at. Thank you, Winston for being so attentive!
See you next year!
Sylvia and John
Thanks, Mia & Kevin, for preserving & caring for this wonderful haven in this beautiful cove. We love coming here - this was at least our 3rd visit. We look forward to next year.

Love imbues this place
The ocean so wide, silver sheen
Each night the house warmed
And embraced our
Sun kissed bodies.
Food so delectable.
Most of the time, I felt like I was in a Sunset Magazine photo shoot.
Amazing, sweet, gentle laughter
Washes over me.
Let the magic work and you too will

Kevin & Mia,
Had a wonderful time, short as it was. Awesome "potato pie" and great mussels at the Phoenix, kudos to Kevin for the recommendation. Wish we could move in permanently or at least a few days. Wonderful solitude and rustling of the trees rocked us to peaceful sleep. Thank you so very much, will be back.
P.S. Peter & Mandy, Perth Australia
Love the bed! and tub!
Dear Kevin & Mia,
We came here on this stormy weekend to enjoy the rain, the surf and gail winds. We were not disappointed! What was a surprize was this beautiful cottage. We will certainly be back and next time, for more than one night.
Thank you for being such gracious hosts. We look forward to the next trip here.
Don & Evelyn Van Hoozer
P.S. Breakfast was delicious.
I am currently employed by the Coast Guard. I found the immense treasure trove of historical documents and pictures amazing. More than that though, my wife and I found a peace we do not find in the city. Our anniversary went perfectly. We could not and have not found a more relaxing location to spend our time. The breakfast kept with the ideal of relaxation and was another item that did not let us down. Kevin and Mia should be thanked for not just providing a service of rest and relaxation to those worn down by life's daily grind, but for keeping a piece of history alive. We will return to the Coast Guard House and will tell our friends to experience this lovely setting as well. We have not been this relaxed in a long time.

By the way happy belated anniversary
Kevin & Mia!
Dear Kevin and Mia,
Well, your wonderful place by the ocean exceeded all expectations! Thank you so much for all the care - wonderful breakfasts, cozy bed and fantastic tub. Sleeping under the starry sky with the sound of the surf! The baby swallows in their nest was maybe the best part. Our stay was too short, so next time we will be here longer - thank you again.
With kindest regards,
Marie and Kenneth Bernhardt, Sacramento, CA
Mia & Kevin,
We all had a marvelous time!
love the cottage, it's so cozy & romantic with a gorgeous view of God's creation out of every window (port hole :)) Winston was an able and loyal guide and you both had great suggestions on how to spend our days.
Breakfast was scrum - dilly - umtious!! Thank-you for being so accomodating about my pesky food allergies. We will sing your praises to our friends & be back soon!

Dear Kevin and Mia,
every little thing was perfect!!
I couldn't have asked for a more peaceful way to spend my weekend after my retreat last week. This place will always be special to me and I will be back!
I don't want to go home! I don't, I don't! I don't! Best place ever. We 'will' be back.....we see Mike & John are regulars now. Good thing! The granola was the best, sorry about the empty jars, it was too good. We didn't know life existed without TV, at least it left us with plenty of other things to do....he he. The tub was wonderful once you got the hang of it & the fireplaces were a good source of entertainment. Oh, & the ocean.....the breeze and smell, that was our favorite & hardly left the bedroom, I know what you're thinking....shame on you. Thanks again for everything. I can't wait to return. This was the best birthday ever!!!

We had a very soothing & romantic get-a-way for our 15th anniversary! Everything was just perfect!

What a wonderful place !! After staying at many bed and breakfasts - this was the best "Bed and Breakfast" that we have had. The peach muffins were excellent! The fireplace was better to watch than anything on TV!
Thanks to Mia & Kevin for taking care of us....
Karina & Richard Autz
Kevin, Mia and Winston...
Beautiful, warm, sunny...what a treat! My husband and I loved the bed...with the sea breeze all night...and the whirlpool/jacuzzi was amazing :) The reading room was the perfect place to set up a little crib for our six month old daughter...her first trip away from home. Needless to say, we all enjoyed the cottage.
Our favorite suggestion away from the cottage (courtesy of Kevin) was taking Alder Creek Beach Road down to the ocean...the beach and the estuary were incredible...and we were the only ones there. Nothing like a private view of the Pacific!!
Anyway, will recommend Cypress Cottage and Coast Guard House to many others...
Thanks again, Greg, Leslie and baby Helyn, San Francisco, CA
"TWAS BRILLIG, AND THE SLITHY TOVES DID GYRE AND GIMBLE IN THE WABE. ALL MIMSY WERE THE BOROGROVES, AND MOMERATHS OUT GRABE."
THERE'S NO BETTER PLACE THAN THE MISTS OF PT. ARENA FOR THE LIKES OF L. CARROLL TO SPIN HIS OPIUM INDUCED STRINGS OF NONSENSE.
HOWEVER, IF YOU ARE OUT OF OPIUM, CONSIDER THE ALDER CREEK ACCESS AT THE NORTH END OF MANCHESTER BEACH ST. PRK. FOR A DAY OF SOLITUDE, ON THE BEACH.
SCRAMBLING NORTH FROM THE ARENA COVE PIER AT LOW TIDE AFFORDS ACCESS TO UNIQUE GEOLOGY...JUST MAKE SURE YOU RETURN IN TIME TO AVOID WET FEET.
GUALALA TO THE SOUTH SEEMS TO COURT THE SUN. A 4 HR. PADDLE FROM 1-5PM ON THE RIVER SATISFIES SEEKERS OF SUN.
BUT OF COURSE THE BEST COMES AT THE END OF DAY WHEN YOU GET TO LUXURIATE HERE IN CYPRESS COTTAGE.

We are Just Married and this already is one of my favorite places to honeymoon. Such a lovely New England-style place right here on our coast! Very cool! Thank you.
Julie & Kel MacDonald
P.S. 24 Sept. - Must return to this place. Most wonderful weekend away EVER! Definite future anniversary destination.
Being here has brought back such wonderful memories of the places we grew up in. We are here celebrating our first date anniversary and the cottage has made this moment a special one. Watching the sunset, stargazing, listening to the waves crash, enjoying the fireplace, the jacuzzi with the other fireplace.......
Thank you so much! Great breakfasts, wonderful hospitality, we shall see you again.
