We stayed at Nick's Cove for three nights this summer and found it to be a truly wonderful place. We were in Al's Cottage right on the beach. The decor is "rustic" and very comfortable. Every detail is perfect. The service is also excellent. Every single person that works there is friendly and willing to help in any way. This...

My husband and I just spent several nights at Nick's Cove and it was a perfect visit. We stayed in the Red Legged Frog, giving us a water view, a spacious and extremely cozy room and all the amenities we could have asked for. I loved having a make-up mirror available and the staff are attentive magicians, always supplying their...

Nick's Cove Cottages has been on my "wish list" of places to visit for some time so when my daughter and I decided to book a bioluminescence kayak trip on the evening of July 4th I booked us a cottage as well. I highly recommend both (the cabins and the kayak trip)! We stayed in Red Legged Frog - which...

We stayed in Al's cottage directly on the waterfront. Billed as a "gentlemen's retreat" (not sure why) it was a lovely stay for us to celebrate a birthday early. The bed was heavenly with a view of the water and cottage had all the amenities one would expect with a luxury hotel. We really appreciated the complimentary non-alcoholic beverages (sodas,...

This rather hidden gem tucked behind the beautiful hills near Pt. Reyes Refuge is a true delight. About 8 cabins that were formerly fishermen's cottages have been beautifully renovated and decorated in a comfy and luxurious way and each of the cabins have a wood burning fireplace and deck over the water with lovely views across to Pt. Reyes. It...

The cottages could not be more beautiful or perfectly placed. Step out of the back deck and you are over water. Very comfortable rooms. Wonderful fireplace and living room. Can not wait to go back. They even have a two bedroom cottage with separate bathrooms.

We had young children with us and ny four children with their families. Children enjoy schnizzels and they were very good.the pastas were ok, nothing spectacular. Focachias were disapointing. Salads were fresh, the parmasan cheese was not a big chunk of cheese but grated in a jar. Not expected in an italian restaurant. I had putaneska, no, i would 't...
