“Historic Roadhouse!”

Nick’s Cove Restaurant, Oyster Bar and Cottages is a restored historic roadhouse overlooking the pristine Tomales Bay in Marshall, CA, and serves the freshest sustainable, local seafood, oysters, produce and cheese that Marin and Sonoma Counties have to offer. Each cottage at Nick’s Cove is luxuriously appointed with cotton linens, plush down comforters, rainforest showers, including some cottages with large soaking tubs, heated ceramic floors, organic bath amenities and more, to ensure each guest enjoys a comfortable, private and relaxing stay. Guests to Nick’s Cove restaurant will enjoy a variety of seaside dishes as well as comforting meats, poultry and pasta options, with the fresh catch of the day changing daily. Nick's Cove is one of the last remaining historic settlements catering to the early California tourist trade on the beautiful Tomales Bay coastland. It’s served as a depot for tourism, local fishermen and agricultural operations throughout its history. The property was originally part of a vast ranch until Henry W. Hallock, President Lincoln's chief of staff during the Civil War, bought the property in 1850 and then sold it to Jeremiah Blake, an easterner who settled on Tomales Bay at a place that became known as Blake's Landing. During that time, the property was the site of industries as diverse as saddle making, duck raising and dairy farming. The North Pacific Coast Railroad constructed tracks along the shorefront in 1873, spanning the region from Sausalito to the Russian River, transporting passengers and freight, such as dairy products, fish and clams.

The waterfront cabins, which actually sit in the water on stilts, are as eccentric as they are delightful. Go for Nicolina, a reclaimed 1930s boat, and dream of the ocean. The hills you'll gaze at across the water, Point Reyes Park, make for one of the most beautiful hikes in California.
