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-dos.
Over two dozen great restaurants can be found in Cardiff. This includes Restaurant Row, just half a mile from the lodge where many restaurants line the Coast Hwy and sit at the water's edge. All of the restaurants in Cardiff are an easy walk from the lodge and offer selections for everyone. Other options are a short drive away in Encinitas, Del Mar, Solana Beach, or San Diego.
If you've researched holding a simple ceremony barefoot on the beach, you may have found it short on privacy and long on logistical challenges. But don't give up your dream; you can comfortably and privately tie the knot a scant 800 feet from the sand, on the rooftop deck of Cardiff-by-the-Sea Lodge. We can accommodate up to 100 seated or standing guests in our beautiful rooftop garden overlooking the tranquil blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. Call us at (760)944-6474 today to check availability.
