William Tell House
Tomales, CA

The 120-year-old building is a bar and restaurant downstairs, and boutique hotel with three rooms upstairs. Redone in 2019, many of the building’s original features — redwood floors, wood-framed windows — were lovingly restored. Modern conveniences like memory foam mattresses, WiFi and Bluetooth speakers were also installed. The feeling, enhanced by iron frame beds in each of the rooms and the stone fireplace in the king family suite, is rustic farmhouse. Located just up the hill from Dillon Beach in the northwest corner of Marin, William Tell House is ideally suited for days at the beach, riding along the California Cheese Trail or slurping up oysters and local seafood at the many seafood shacks that dot nearby Tomales Bay.
