The Captain's Inn at Moss Landing is owned by Captain Yohn and Melanie Gideon. As your hosts, they want their inn to be your getaway where you can relax and enjoy the beautiful views and wildlife in the area. They rennovated the Pacific Coast Steamship Company in great detail to share with visitors, and built the boathouse so their guests can take full advantage overlooking the marshlands.
Melanie is from the local area and loves to share the many special places Monterey Bay and Moss Landing has to offer. She knows many fun stories of local history and can identify most wildlife. As a girl, she would go by the building and dream of restoring the building. Several of the generous recipes served at the inn were based on her grandmothers' and family traditions.
Originally from Nebraska, Captain Yohn is a certified U.S. Coast Guard Captain who operates Elkhorn Slough Safari Nature Boat Tours daily to see the wonders of one of California's largest wetlands. He also officiates at weddings.
The Captain and his wife live on the Inn property with their two children. The family's quarters are in a building separate from our guests.
