How to find us

We are located about a 45 minute drive off US Highway 101, Garberville/Redway exit.  The small community of Shelter Cove, on the coast just below the King Range, lies at the core of the Lost Coast.  It can only be accessed by boat, by driving for 23 miles along a winding mountain road from Redway or by flying into the tiny Shelter Cove Airport.
