Always entertaining to read the sometimes contradictory reviews here of Manka's Inverness Lodge. This is a particular place of a specific bohemian hunting-lodge ethos not embraced by all but beloved by many. Among the latter, count us. Over the years we've repaired here often, this is our ninth visit but our first in an Annex room. Room #9 is cozy... More

We had a wonderful night at Manka's! The place is charming… Totally off the beaten path and almost intentionally on the down low. The breakfast included fresh made morning buns and homemade yogurt. Absolutely delicious. It even came with a copy of the New York Times! I would highly recommend staying here. It is open and much has changed. Disregard... More

I shouldn't be writing this review, because I want this place to stay secret. But I can't help but gush about how amazing Manka's is. To begin, this place has some incredibly interesting and quirky history. Originally built as a hunting and fishing lodge in the early 1900s, before even the Golden Gate Bridge was around to transport people to... More

A word-of-mouth destination. Check in is a parked Avion Trailer (looks like an Airstream). The rooms are a combination of stand-alone cabins and attached units, set around a neighborhood. Exceptional attention to detail. Real bear skin rug. Real period furniture, bathroom fittings, door handles. Something out of a Ralph Lauren photo shoot. Outdoor shower. Enormous tub. Complete silence at night.... More

We had wanted to stay at Manka's for quite a long time but were put off by the fire several years ago and waiting for the restaurant to reopen. We saw that they had opened Sir and Star nearby and that a restaurant at the inn was not going to happen. So, we decided to try it out. I was... More

I absolutely loved our stay in Manka's Cabin and it was a welcome treat after leaving the hustle and bustle of San Francisco. I adored the bath and we enjoyed relaxing in front of the fire, listening to the ipod music selection and playing cards. The breakfasts were certainly delicious - the first morning's delivery consisted of cinnamon rolls and... More

We spend two lovely nights at Manka's, staying in Room 7 in the annex. The room was large with an attached porch. The lighting was exceptionally dim making it difficult to see that the it was actually nicely done. Large, comfy leather chairs and a hassock in front of the fireplace, a large, sturdy bed with a comfortable mattress and... More

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

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
