Point Reyes, West Marin, CA - where to stay for last-minute getaway
February 18, 2018 11:59 AM   Subscribe

A last minute opportunity has arisen for Mrs. AFAC and I to make a short getaway, next week, sans the offspring. Looking for ideas on where to stay, in West Marin, CA

We're very big fans of West Marin ; back in the days before parenthood we spent a lot of time in Pt. Reyes, Tomales, Marshall, and Inverness. But at the moment when I think back to the places we've stayed, I am coming up with either (a) "meh" or (b) "it was so long ago, is that place still even there?" and I think that's telling me that we should try someplace new. So, I'm wondering if anyone on the Green can recommend some good spots ; hotel or BnB (preferably not via AirBnB) or we'd even consider Glamping. We don't need much ; doesn't need to be fancy ; rustic and simple preferred.

Congratulations for picking one of the best places in SF, CA, USA, Earth... for a trip! Point Reyes has a good hostel that a lot of non-students stay like.

Key question is whether you have a car. If you do have a car, you have infinite options because even from San Francisco, it only takes 1-1.5 hrs to get to Point Reyes. If you stay in Marin, you'll have even less of a problem. Bodega Bay has a ton of Airbnbs, so that's a good option. Pelican Inn is one of my favorite places, although it's a 40min drive from Muir Beach to Point Reyes. (Muir Beach is worth going to by itself though!) Another nearby place is Bolinas, which has some cute inns as well. Also a true West Marin destination unto itself.

My wife and I love the Apple Garden Cottage in Tomales.

Also check out dinner at Nick's Cove.

The hostel at Point Reyes is quite nice.

Steep Ravine is ridiculously beautiful. There are both campsites and cabins - the latter might suit you.
