Our second time here - first was years ago as a couple before their restaurant burned down. This time we stayed at Mankas Cabin and brought our daughter. She absolutely loved sleeping in front of the fireplace on the sofa bed. Huge tub in bathroom with excellent bath products and rainforest shower outside. Excellent sheets, super comfortable bed, quiet peaceful... More

You couldn't pay a higher room rate for the worst accommodation, worst service, and dirtiest property on earth. This establishment should be confronted by the Calif. Consumer Affairs Board, for false and improper claims, regarding pricing, accommodations, service, and hygiene issues on their properties. Manka's is ripping guests off by shear deceit , false claims, and must be the most... More

Handsome cabin with that will appeal to posh outdoorsman and the city dwellers. Excessively expensive for cabin without a lodge restaurant that was destroyed by fire. It is remarkable these structures still exist near the Bay Area. One should expect a little more from Manka's and its check in staff upon arrival. Showing the guests to the cabin should be... More

Lovely stay at Manka's. Our room was very cozy with a queen size bed, wood burning fireplace, 2 comfortable leather chairs in front of the fireplace, bathroom with claw foot bathtub and a separate walk-in shower. Since it is January, the nights were cold, but the heater, fireplace, wool blankets with the leather chairs and the down comforter kept us... More

Mankas is like a remote second (or nth) home. It becomes more familiar and more endearing each time one spends time there. It is luxurious in a low key kind of way. That sounds like an oxymoron but is quite my best description for the place. There is attention to detail whether it be your beddings, your needs, the way... More

Just returned from a long weekend at Manka's -- our third time there. And Manka's seems to get better with age. It's a perfect location and perfect set up (various types of lodging dot the landscape of the place) -- but everything is well thought out and it's the perfect place to escape to. The staff is amazing -- there... More

We had a perfect weekend at Mankas. The breakfast is over the top and something really special that separates Manka's from most other hotels. Warm cinnamon buns, homemade yogurt and granola delivered to your doorstep...the best! We also had a great dinner at Stir and Star in Olema. The one thing is that I would stay in a different cabin...

This beautiful rustic lodge surpassed our expectations. It was amazingly peaceful and let you be pampered while also feeling in touch with the nature and surroundings. We felt very secluded with the beautiful greenery growing around our porch and housing. We took full advantage of the fireplace in the room and the redwood hot tub that sat out on our... More

My husband and I went to Manka's for a very short stay to celebrate our anniversary. I am not a rustic kind of girl, and don't like the country, however if you are looking for an in-between Manka's if definitely the place. At check-in the staff are very nice. We stayed in room 10.. The room is small but once... More

It's amazing what can be produced by a team in a small Airstream trailer. I selected to have my 70th birthday at this charming retreat in the woods. Seemed like a good place to gather a family, and I was not one bit disappointed. We reserved four cabins in a row and it was perfect. Yes, the wonderful, old, historic... More
