Former owners James and Jeanette Statser lovingly crafted Cardiff-by-the-Sea Lodge using James's award-winning design skills. Seventeen individually designed and uniquely decorated rooms keep guests returning over and over to try all the different styles and amenities, which include fireplaces, ocean views, and whirlpool tubs.Cardiff-by-the-Sea is a beautiful, walkable town with many attractions along its historic stretch of Highway 101. It offers dining, shopping, camping, and the surfing hotspot Cardiff Reef. Many Southern California attractions are within driving distance, but even if you choose to simply relax in Cardiff-by-the-Sea, you will find plenty of enjoyable experiences.The San Diego region offers beautiful weather all year long, but the ideal times to visit Cardiff-by-the-Sea Lodge are May and September. In May, the ground floor gardens sweep along cobblestone paths, bursting with ripe roses and dahlias. In September, our warmest month, the rolling ocean water and temperate evenings make surfing and stargazing must!
