Perched above the sweep of Dillon Beach in the northern reaches of Marin County, Dillon Beach Resort is built to maximize views of the Pacific Ocean while providing guests on a group getaway a homey feel. To think of Dillon Beach Resort’s rental homes as Airstreams without the wheels gives prospective “renters” a sense of the cool design and thoughtful features that went into this coastal community. Though they are not sheathed in aluminum, rental homes maximize natural light and ocean views but provide privacy between units. Each unit has a kitchen and a private deck, accessible only from each home. In some homes, the bedroom is downstairs for single-story living while others have an upstairs bedroom for additional privacy.
If your group doesn’t want to cook its own meals, the lodge’s main dining room, Dillon Beach Coastal Kitchen, serves up seasonal favorites from local fisherman and farms at lunch and dinner. The accompanying Dillon Beach General Store is one part surf shop, two parts beach eats. Coffee and espresso drinks, plus fresh baked goods and soft serve for an after-beach treat are here plus beach-safe drinks, snacks and other goodies.
