I stayed at the Abalone Inn for four nights following a work trip in San Francisco. I was looking to get away from the crowds of the city and spend some time hiking in Point Reyes National Park. Donna was a charming hostess, and gave me helpful tips of coastal areas to explore, good hiking paths, local bakeries, etc. I... More

While on a motorcycle trip up route one my friend and I deviated from our itinerary and found ourselves in need of a place to stay and after having no luck at a few other places in town we settled for the Abalone Inn. We were greeted in the parking lot by the owner and she stated she only had... More

We stayed two nights at the Abalone Inn, $170 per night. Before making the reservation, I read reviews on several sites and thought well, so the hostess is a bit eccentric and sometimes reviewers can be cranky, probably this place is fine. It was not fine. The Inn is more of a spare bedroom type of place with house mates... More

My boyfriend and I just came back from our trip to Point Reyes where we spent a wonderful 2 nights in the Abalone Inn. When we called to book our trip a month or so back, Donna, the owner, gave us a heads-up about the quirks of this 100+ year old house including removing shoes upon entry, the old septic... More

When we checked in, the proprietor gave us a very lengthy "tour" of the place in which she proceeded to explain all of the rules Including: no shoes (hardwood floors), which outdoor space was ours, how to lock the door every time we step out, how to park, and instructions not to flush ANYTHING down the toilet, including used toilet...

Okay so we were running a little late and the lady got mad at us because we weren't there at exactly 5:30. Your not aloud to walk normally because Donna claims it's "too loud" so you have to tiptoe and whisper. The toilet doesn't flush the rooms are not earthquake safe. The point is don't stay here

Very much enjoyed my 2-day stay at this B&B. Proprietor was very helpful in helping me plan excursions and dining options. Highly recommend if you are seeking a quaint and quite B&B. The location is conveniently near sight seeing and dining options.

I stayed at the Inn for two weeks in May 2014 and will definitely be back! Donna is a wonderful person and hostess. She made me feel welcomed and like I was at home- clean, comfy, and quiet. Good beds, lovely living room area with outstanding view, and one of the most gorgeous gardens I have seen. Eco-friendly without being... More

We came across this magical Victorian by accident after an extended exploration of the astounding Point Reyes National Seashore. What serendipity! The Abalone Inn was everything we could have wanted. We walked in on the cool evening to a fire at the hearth, and a gracious, warm host, offering dinner suggestions, a dip in the hot tub, and a charming... More

This very charming place that has its shortcoming for sure. Among others it was dusty and not very well isolated. The good stuff:The owner is very friendly. She asked us to take our shoes off before entering. In the apartment is a small radio that was playing some very relaxing but alternative type of music. It did fit the picture... More
