November 21, 2018 Patrick Yore

For Parents Only


Tomales Bay, California


THE PARENTS : Emily & Steve

THE OCCASION : Weekend Getaway

THE TIME : September 2018

THE SPOT : Nick’s Cove on Tomales Bay in Marshall

THE VIBE : Rustic mountain/coastal cottages with a great restaurant. Laid back, old school. You can feel the history of this place.

THE AREA : Explore Point Reyes Station. Enjoy oysters at the Marshall Store. Tour local cheese producers including Cowgirl Creamery and Nicasio Valley. Bird-watching, tide-pooling, boating, and kayaking are all options that will showcase the natural beauty of Tomales Bay.

THE DETAILS:  Located along the coast of Tomales Bay, this West Marin gem has been attracting visitors for decades. After an easy and scenic drive, you’ll arrive and feel like you’ve found a seaside oasis. Unwind with some local oysters and a beverage and breathe in that salty ocean air. Choose from one of twelve cottages (five are waterfront) that are both rustic and comfortable, even a bit luxurious.

And, you won’t need to leave to enjoy a fabulous meal: The Nick’s Cove restaurant serves fresh, local seafood and produce grown in its own garden. Farm to table at its best! And pre- or post-dinner, you must spend some time out at “The Shack” at the end of the pier.
