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

Manka's is not for people who bring their white noise machine everywhere. Or go to sleep with the television on. Manka's is for people who want to curl up by a roaring fire and finally read the book that has been sitting by the bed. Or the couple who wants to sink into a deep cocoon of a four poster... More

At first I was disappointed, considering how much I was paying, but by the time I left I was sorry to go. It's rustic but posh. My room, #10 was huge - more a mini-suite than anything. It had a private deck with a beautiful view, a window seat and table and best of all, a wood burning fireplace. I... More

We stayed in the Inn last night and it exceeded out expectations by far! We followed Michael as he drove to our rustic upstairs "boatman's lodge" on the bay. We enjoyed a fire (already completely prepared with an ample supply of wood). It came equipped with a charming closet beautifully supplied with supplies to make coffee or tea and half... More

Quirky, charming....but certainly not worth $400/night. Excellent breakfast, comfy bed and nice linens, yes. But barely any lighting in the room (7), made it hard to read or see. Industrial handles on the shower---not so charming. Only one vent working on the hot tub. This is an OLD hotel, and I just don't see that it's maintenance and minimal staff... More
