The Captain's Inn is a historic bed and breakfast that was originally built to be the Pacific Coast Steamship Company in 1906 following the San Francisco earthquake. Located in a quaint, historic fishing village in Central Monterey Bay and half way between Santa Cruz and Carmel, the inn offers a marvelous opportunity to see a multitude of wildlife. You may watch a harbor seal swim by, an egret looking for fish or a hawk soaring overhead. Wonderful waterfront views from the inn relax the pace with a sea air freshness.

Accommodations include six guest rooms located right on the river in the Boathouse and four fully renovated guestrooms located within the historic main building.

Each guest bed in the boathouse is uniquely made from a boat, beautifully adapted for a perfect night's sleep. All rooms have a private bath, gas fireplace, antiques and outstanding views of the marsh, river, and sand dunes. In the main inn, each room is decorated in antiques with a nautical touch. Two accommodation offer a fireplace and two have claw-foot bathtubs. High Speed Internet throughout - wifi in dining room and parlor and hardwire access in guest rooms..

A full, hot, home-cooked breakfast is served daily. You may request an Early Bird Brown Bag Breakfast to take with you on your adventures.

Your hosts are both wildlife enthusiasts and love to share their knowledge of the surrounding area and first-hand experiences with you. Captain Yohn owns and operates Elkhorn Slough Safari Nature Boat Tours for great sightings of playful sea otters, seals and many birds in the slough waterways, all just a few blocks from the inn. Sanctuary Cruises can take you onto the Pacific Ocean for year-round whale watching and special charters on conservation based, non-smoking vessels. Take a refreshing horseback ride on the beach with Monterey Bay Equestrian Center or if you're a racing fan, you will be only fifteen miles from the back gates of the Mazda Laguna Seca Raceway. If you happen to stay at Captain's Inn at the end of July, the Moss Landing Antique Street Fair is one of the eagerly anticipated outdoor antiques markets in California where you can browse thousands of antiques and collectibles for sale in hundreds of booths.

As you can surely tell by now, a stay at the Captain's Inn in Moss Landing is far from the ordinary vacation. Plan your family getaway, small wedding or group reunion amid an abundance of treasured wildlife, spectacular scenery and fascinating history with your hosts, Captain Yohn and Melanie Gideon.

Massage by the Sea

The next best thing to a walk on the beach, is a massage after a beach walk at sunset.. in the luxurious comfort of your own waterfront room at Captain's Inn. A great way to escape stress, place yourself in the very able hands of Captain's Inn's own licensed massage therapists, choose from a variety of massage styles and scented oils and feel that tension melt away. The massage cost $75 per hour.

This laid back little town of Moss Landing is the perfect way to enjoy everything that is special about Monterey Bay. Because it is half way between Carmel and Santa Cruz you have opportunities for great day trips to the Beach and Boardwalk amusement park or the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Carmel high-end shops ... all while staying in a more natural setting with tourist free quiet nights, less fog than its neighbors and a uniquely unforgettable environment.
