by the Sea
Jenner is set
along the Pacific coastline. The transition to the coastal environment begins
around Duncan's Mills and completes at the river's last bend before flowing into
the ocean (see the picture at the left). Jenner offers fine River and Ocean view
dining, great vacation rentals, romantic lodging and unique gift shops. Jenner
is a short drive from spectacular cliffs and accessible beaches including Goat
Rock State Park.
There are a couple of restaurants with spectacular views in Jenner.
There are five lodges in Jenner and several vacation rentals. They are the Fort
Ross Lodge, Salt Point Lodge, Jenner Inn, River's End Inn, and Timber Cove in.
Only Jenner Inn and River's End Inn are in the town. The other three are up the
coast. There are also great vacation rentals to choose from.

The main attraction is being at the river's mouth. This is the intersection of
the river and coast ecosystems. Consider renting a kayak to paddle around the
estuary. During seal pupping season when you head towards the mouth you can see
the seals swimming along next to you. The air is always incredibly fresh in Jenner,
especially when you walk down by the river -it is invigorating.Goat Rock beach
is a great place to have a picnic with the dunes, rock formations, pounding surf
and dramatic hiking trail.
