8/10 Very good

Pros: Outstanding breakfast, spotlessly clean, gracious & welcoming hosts, quiet, comfortable & relaxing. Cons: Rough entrance road through a trailer park, old toilet that ran unless the handle was jiggled just so, entrance through the garage was a bit odd.

Great Place
We had a very clean, spacious, comfortable room at Arky's B&B. The place was amazing, with great views and amenities. Friendly staff, and very interesting Chinese-style breakfast which was very good.

What a jewel! Very peaceful location and the hosts provided us with an amazing breakfast as we sat at our table looking out onto the ocean. We stayed in the Master Suite, which was on the second floor. We could hear the ocean as we slept. Highly recommend it. We will be back. Very convenient location for our exploration of Jediah Smith Redwoods.

Wonderful, relaxing, luxurious retreat
What a truly lovely B&B, with gorgeous grounds, amazing views, a gigantic master bedroom with a large balcony, and excellent, first-class service. Plus the Chinese breakfast was scrumptious. My wife and I aren't typically B&B fans, but trust me — this is by far and away the best place to stay for many hundreds of miles around.
