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 is all the best Sonoma Coast has to offer.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Wonderful Thanksgiving at Grace at the Sea

  • 5 of 5


We had an amazing time at the cottage this past week. As 'new empty nesters', my husband and I were looking for somewhere special to celebrate our first Thanksgiving alone in 25 years and your home was just the ticket. We fell in love with the home, the Salmon Creek neighborhood, and the surrounding area. The cottage was charming, immaculate, and very welcoming - the rooms were perfect and comfortable. I fixed Thanksgiving dinner and several other meals in the kitchen and everything I needed was there. Your attention to detail in the furnishings and supplies made the stay that much more enjoyable. We especially enjoyed many hours up on the balcony watching and listening to the ocean waves. And of course the Pumpkin Cake was to die for - thanks!

Thanks again Pam for sharing your lovely home - We will definitely be back!

The only word we could use to describe this cottage is magical. It was such a great experience. We loved the quiet location and with it being just 5 minutes outside of Bodega Bay it was perfect! This will definitely be a vacation that we consider again at Grace by the Sea!

Beautiful beach cottage in Salmon Creek

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to relax and enjoy! We really loved staying in this quiet, cozy and comfortable cottage. The house was spotless, and the owner has thoughtfully provided all amenities. The Salmon Creek location is so peaceful, yet close enough to commercial Bodega Bay that you can drive there in a few minutes. From the house, you can walk to the beach easily, or access the coastal trail that passes through Bodega Dunes state park campground. We enjoyed sleeping upstairs with the porch door open, listening to the surf. Many, many thanks--hope to return soon!

Great little getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this cute little house near the beach! We went for the weekend to celebrate our anniversary and were welcomed with a homemade lemon cake and a great clean home. The beach is a short walk away and you have a great view from the upstairs room.

Owner's Response: Happy to hear you had a wonderful anniversary. I have 2 lemon trees in my back yard that keep me supplied, and I love to share my lemon loaf. Hope to see the two of you with your new addition in the future. Thank you for choosing Grace at the Sea. Pam

Always a pleasure

  • 5 of 5

I will always give Grace at the Sea 5 stars. It is a clean, comfortable, nicely appointed 2 story cottage with a great bathtub and full kitchen, two very important things when I am visiting Bodega Bay. I've stayed there 3-4 times and I am never disappointed. The cottage is located just off of HWY 1 in a very quiet neighborhood, close enough to Bodega Bay that it is an easy trip to the Pelican Market for any supplies (cookies, charcoal, cookies) and far enough from the HWY that I can't hear the traffic on the road. It is a short walk to the closest beach and a short drive to another half dozen beaches, Goat Rock being my favorite. The only problem I ever have with Grace at the Sea is leaving and going back to my real life, but that's not the cottages fault.

We appreciate you choosing Grace at the Sea for your Bodega Bay destination, on numerous occasions. It is a pleasure to offer my cottage to guests like you. Hope to see you soon.
