The Inn above the clouds

On top of the world.  Away from it all. When you stand here, you see it all. Primeval forests that guard the vast, blue Pacific. A corridor of redwoods and pines tangled in the fog of San Francisco Bay. All from this tender inn, high atop a Mt. Tamalpais ridgeline, bordering Muir Woods. It’s been welcoming visitors for over a century. It’s waiting to welcome you.

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. Hiking trails fan out from us.

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. We are ten minutes from Pacific Ocean beaches and 20 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge. Point Reyes is a half hour drive north on Hwy. 1.

After 2.6 miles, bear right at fork onto Panoramic Highway (sign says Mt. Tamalpais). After l mile, at 4-way intersection, take the high road, Panoramic (sign says Mt. Tam).
