There’s no better way to explore the Point Reyes National Seashore than from Olema House, positioned as it is on the edge of the park itself. Behind the inn, a wide lawn slopes down to a tumbling brook, across which the parklands begin. Those more interested in local food and culture will be just as happy with the location, five minutes from the village of Point Reyes Station with its galleries, shops, bakeries, and the Cowboy Creamery artisanal food hub. Every room faces onto the lawn, tall glass windows framing views over the creek to Inverness Ridge and Mt. Wittenberg beyond. All the rooms have radiant heat-warmed floors and many have fireplaces, a welcome addition on foggy nights. Onsite restaurant Due West and its artisanal market stay true to their setting in a 19th-century roadhouse, serving local cheeses, baked goods, and other picnic makings.Photo: Courtesy of Olema House
