Ocean View Inn
History of the Ocean View Inn
Built in 1906 as a roadhouse, the Ocean View Inn
still echoes its turn-of-the-century heritage with the old red brick built into the landscaping around modernized rooms. Most likely built after the great 1906 earthquake by a German couple, the Inn still displays a beautiful stained glass window with an inscribed dedication written in German, possibly as a memorial to his wife. The Inn was later converted to a hotel, then changed hands in the late 1950's and called the Farallone House. In the 1990's, the Inn was purchased by a corporation that attempted to demolish it and build a franchise in its place. Thankfully the County of San Mateo prevented this from happening, citing the Inn's historic value to the town of Montara. Soon after, it became the Farallone Inn, and then it switched hands again in 2011 and has become the Ocean View Innand the Inn still retaining hints of the old hotel ambiance.
All of the Inn's eight rooms have private entrances with decks, whirlpool tubs and all rooms are non-smoking.Ocean View Inn is located on the east side of Highway 1. The Inn can accommodate parties of up to 40 people in the garden area for weddings, family gatherings, and other special occasions. On site is a pizzeria to provide a nearby dining option for guests.
