Timber-Cove is a small community located on the rugged, secluded northern California coastline. This stretch of coast, also called the "Redwood Coast," is known for its quiet beauty and wilderness. Many come just for the awesome scenery and to relax and "get away from it all."

Stoll the shoreline or explore tidepools or listen to the sound of the crashing wave. Many visitors come for the migration of the California Gray Whale, others come for the great birdwatching, biking, horseback riding, hiking, golf and rock climbing.

Various lodging facilities, retail stores and restaurants can be found in the town of Timber Cove, and other nearby attractions include the historic Russian Fort Ross, the village of Jenner-by-the Sea, Salt Point State Park, Kruze Rhododendron Park and the Avenue of the Giants Redwood Forest.

The Timber Cove Inn is noted for its 85-foot-high concrete and mosaic statue Peace (1960), the last finished work by Bay Area sculptor Beniamino Bufano.
