California Heartlands came to stay at the Captain's Inn. This PBS program is showcasing fresh produce and food across California. First airing on KVIE Sacramento in Fall 2008, the segment with reporter Melanie Kim featured breakfast as prepared by innkeeper Melanie. Both Melanies are in the photo.
The Food Network was in Moss Landing taping their number one show - Throwdown with Bobby Flay! They were here to challenge Moss Landing's Phil, of Phil's Fish Market because of his fame and expertise with Ciopinno, a most wonderful seafood stew. Your innkeeper Melanie met the Iron Chef and was included in the segment as an extra. Congradulations to Phil!
Bay Area BackRoads' Doug and crew used the Captain's Inn as a central starting spot for exploring Elkhorn Slough and Monterey Bay. The Backgroads featured sea otters on Elkhorn Slough, Monterey Bay Aquarium and hiking areas. First aired in Fall 2007, watch for the Captain's Inn on the Bay Area Backround KRON-TV.
The "Great Outdoors" was in town to explore the
wildlife of Elkhorn Slough in Fall 2005. Tom Stienstra and crew saw all
sorts of wildlife including sea otters, seals, and birds. The Captain's
Inn was their base of operations. Recently aired in 2009.
Greenberg with NBC's Today Show visited the Captain's Inn.
Peter and the crew went on Elkhorn Slough Safari to watch wildlife. We
served them sweet potato pancakes with bananas and cream, german
sausages, fresh fruit, and fresh baked pastries. They watched wildlife
and named the boathouse rooms their favorites.
Huell Howser of the PBS program
"California's Golden Coast" stayed at the Inn. Mr. Howser had a
great nights sleep "finest bed and pillows anywhere" and had seconds of
Grandma Martha's secret recipe kuchen. It was a pleasure to have Huell
and his camerman Cameron as our guests. Be sure to watch for the Inn on
the Elkhorn Slough segment, program #106.
It was a pleasure for the Captain's Inn to host BBC television production crew and well known british birder Bill Oddie. BBC was here to produce a program on Elkhorn Slough. We are used to coming into our parlor to find guests spread out with a board game, but it was a bit different to find a floor covered with video, editing and camera gear - fun too! Watch for Elkhorn Slough on BBC's "Bill Oddie Goes Wild" in California.
