About Pam Hill

Purchased cabin in need of love and attention in 2001 to follow my dream of one day living at the beach. Completed remodel in 2005 while living full time until recently. I am now willing to share my labor of love so that I may spend more time with my two beautiful grandchildren and daughter. I have been so blessed in my life, and 'Grace at the Sea' is a reflection of all the love in my heart.

Pam Hill purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Pam Hill chose Sonoma County

Prior to buying this cottage, I would walk my dog at Salmon Creek (when dogs were still allowed) every weekend to unwind from the stress of Corporate America. I retired, started project and never looked back.

What makes this cottage unique

You will feel at home the moment you walk in the front door. The beach, the dunes, the creek............it is all the best Sonoma Coast has to offer.

Coast visit interrupted

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately, my anxiously awaited trip to the Coast, was interrupted by major health issues. I'm feeling better now and hope to make arrangements to try, try again soon. I found that the reservations were made without any hassle as was the cancellation (we did purchase cancellation insurance).

Could not have been better.

  • 5 of 5

Charming, clean, comfortable, recently renovated, very well appointed, great location. We just arrived, parked the car and relaxed for 3 days. We really enjoyed the close proximity to the beach and the sunset view over the water from the bedroom. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: I appreciate your thoughtful comments. Grace at the Sea is definitely the answer for a relaxing stay. When you are near the ocean it puts life in perspective. Life is to be enjoyed and shared with those you love. Stop and smell the roses, listen to the birds sweet songs, put your toes in the sand, and take a deep breath of the wonderful ocean air. Life is good.

Quiet, clean, lovely place to stay for a beach visit

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Grace by the Sea and Salmon Creek. Neat neighborhood, lots of artsy touches and street side gardens. The cottage is much bigger than it looks in pictures and has been beautifully remodeled. Indoors and outside are both equally inviting. Comfortable kitchen, really nice shower upstairs, another shower downstairs. Next time we stay we'll bring along a mattress cover as the upstairs bed is stiff, even for two backpackers like us.

As usual- such a special treat

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Grace at the Sea many times over the last few years and keep coming back because it is so peaceful and has everything we need!

Thanks to Pam, the lovely owner, who used to live there and treats the place as if she still does!

Once again, a delightful stay at Grace at the Sea

  • 4 of 5

We've gone to this lovely little house probably a half dozen times and each time love it and say we should have booked a longer stay! House is furnished so comfortably - has everything one could need. Kitchen is great. We like the DVD collection too. Pam, the owner always has freshly baked treat waiting for us and ground coffee in the freezer. We get the flavor of a wonderfully rustic local community here - it seems that fishermen and others have lived in this neighborhood for a long time. It's about a 6 minute walk to the beach!!! Views eastward toward hills and westward to the ocean's breaking waves are lovely.

We hesitate telling anyone about this place because we want to insure there is always an opening for us!!!

Owner's Response: I am happy to share my Grace at the Sea with guests that love it as I do. Hope you stay that extra day sometime so you can really soak in her charm. I am at the cottage right now, going to enjoy the Salmon Creek Annual Art Walk of local artists. Pam

If you choose adventure, Bodega Bay Surf Shack rents, bikes, kayaks,surfboards and windsurfers. Cruise on a bike along the beach or out to Bodega Head. Surfing lessons with experienced instructors are available. Bodega Bay Pro Dive has a full service dive center. Bodega Bay Kayak Tours offer tours of Salmon Creek, Willow Creek and the Russian River. Sport fishing from Porto Bodega Marina is always popular with many anglers.

If natural wonders is your pleasure, there are great parks and nature reserves. Sonoma County recently constructed a bird walk trail. The trail passes through a revitalized salt water marsh, which is home to thousands of migratory and native birds throughout the year. A bridge connects Doran and Bird Walk Coastal Parks. You can walk along Canadian Geese nesting sites, and over an estuary filled with Leopard Sharks and Bat Rays to reach crashing waves.
