he hot tub is just right for relaxing after a day of horseback riding or hiking at the nearby Point Reyes National Seashore. Numerous trails take the visitor through some of the most diverse settings that nature can provide: long stretches of beaches dotted with tide pools, lagoons, and bird sanctuaries; rolling hillside pastures and densely wooded forests. By season, wildflowers, whale watching, and fresh seafood catch are readily available. Our guests can choose to dine at any number of the exceptional restaurants in the immediate area.
