Nick’s Cove: the property

Last week, I posted about Nick’s Cove lodging but what makes this place so special is the property. The views of Tomales Bay and the rolling hills of Point Reyes. The old-school boat shack where you can enjoy a glass of wine while watching the sunset. The little knickknacks you find on property: the old telephone booth, rustic beached boats, the decrepit yet charming piano in the boat shack. The restaurant.

Nick’s seafood-focused restaurant is adjacent to the on-site garden and Frog Creek Farm, which generates produce, herbs and eggs for the restaurant. The newest projects: Asian pear, fig and citrus fruit trees and a green house. The farm is growing enough Russian kale, purple romaine and butterleaf lettuces to serve the restaurant, and all of their herbs are also being grown on the grounds.

Even if you don’t plan on staying the night, it’s worth a day trip (after all, it’s only 50 miles from San Francisco).

Nick’s Cove: the lodging

We celebrated Old Man Halip John’s 31st birthday in Point Reyes this past weekend. It was glorious. I would even go as far to say that Point Reyes is my West Coast Nantucket. We stayed at Nick’s Cove in “Uncle Andy’s Cabin”–a quaint little bungalow overlooking the glassy bay. The room was decorated in classic coastal style with hunting lodge accents; filled with fishing poles, prints of the area’s indigenous birds and maps. When the temperatures dropped at night, the heated marble bathroom floors and woodburning stove came in handy. Next cabin to stay at on my list: Bandit’s Bungalow.
