Framed by the forest and the sea
Our hotel is located on a Mt. Tamalpais ridgeline in a spectacular setting of mountain scenery, redwood forests and sweeping views.
The beautiful Muir Woods and Mt. Tamalpais parks border our hotel.
The hotel's guestrooms face the sunrise, overlooking the woodsy village of Mill Valley, San Francisco Bay and distant mountain peaks. If you make an 'about face', you face Muir Woods and the Pacific Ocean.
