Inn on Tomales Bay
Ranked #2 of 2 Marshall B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 27, 2013

We were in desperate need of a place to stay after driving over 6 hours. As we were driving under a full moon, one of us noticed a small sign lit by a charming strand of lights. We pulled in hoping for the best when we noticed all lights were off. As we backed out worried we may have to sleep in our Subaru, the Innkeeper Bob came out and welcomed us even though it was after 10pm. It was too dark to see anything outside when we arrived but the room was clean and charming with a very comfortable bed. We awoke the next morning to the most amazing view of the bay along with wild turkies and a fox in our private garden. Breakfast was great and prompt. Will return again and again! Great find.

We stayed at the Inn last weekend and had a wonderful time. It is a beautiful location with a priceless view! The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast (delivered to our room) was punctual - and plentiful if you order everything :) We went kayaking in the afternoon down the road which was also wonderful. We hope to come back someday!

A couple things to note: they have quiet hours starting at 10pm, just FYI. And the shower makes a horrendous sound, which has the effect of limiting shower times (a good thing, since water supplies are limited).

We came here for a three day break to sail our 14 foot dinghy on Tomales Bay. We are very pleased with this place. The north room is comfortable, clean, and cozy, with a quiet heater that doesn't make a sound. Very quiet and peaceful here. No TV thank God! View is fabulous. Could sit here all day. Inn keeper very nice, and didn't complain when we arrived very late and couldn't find the place. He came out to the main road to shine his flashlight for us, over and above the call of duty. Boat ramp still had water at 1.4 low tide. Very surprised and pleased at this accessibility. Probably only dries out at very low tides. Ideal for launching small craft. Breakfast of tea or coffee, oj and very tasty cakes. We will be saving ours for afternoon tea! Our only complaint is with Google Maps, that is slightly off and dumped us in a nearby field. Inn hard to find in pitch dark. Better to arrive in the daylight or during full moon! We will come here again. Little piece of tranquill heaven and welcome break after an exhausting week of work.

We didn't realize this was a B&B when we made reservations, but the rooms are actually outside the main living space, so there was lots of privacy. The view from the upper N room was charming - overlooking the bay with a nice-sized bay window to look out. The room was spacious and the bathroom over-sized, with a big shower. Bob delivered our continental breakfast right to our door. We had OJ, coffee, and some fresh, tasty sweet breads. As we were eating, two different deer wandered below us finding their own meal. Charming place without the noise of cell service, wifi, or tv. We came from Crescent City primarily down Hwy 1, so it was an exhausting trip due to the hairpin turns and mountains. The views made it worth it. We recommend stopping for food before you get there if it is later in the day. Once you're there, you won't want to leave!

I visited this in during the summer whilst on vacation. I have good experience of B & B's as I am from England where there is a huge bed and breakfast culture. This inn is lovely, and has an easy to find, great location, very private, good views, lovely rooms, friendly innkeepers and a very nice Continental breakfast served in your room. I hope to take another break again there when I am next over from England. Good value and brilliant. Well done.

We love nothing more than a place to call home while we travel around and see the nearby sights! We hiked in the Redwood Forest, visited Sonoma and Napa Valley wineries, went to San Francisco and explored, and lastly spent a day on the beach at Tomales Bay. We were never more than one hour away from another adventure. This is my second stay at the Inn on Tomales Bay.

The rooms are immaculate and the view of Tomales Bay is beautiful from the room. Innkeeper Bob is great at giving advice and directions. Lynnette is always ready with a laugh and her smile. The town of Marshall is cute and NIck's has good food.

A lovely room with a gorgeous view of the Bay plus a super comfortable bed - perfect. The innkeepers were lovely too, made me feel right at home and supplied lots of local information and directions for day trips. Great place to get away from it all - quiet and very restful!

Room Tip: All the rooms were good!
