This is a do-it-yourself inn. You let yourself in through directions on the door, and you have virtually no contact with the proprietors except at breakfast. The husband-owner was friendly and he made the breakfast, while the wife-owner was rather indifferent. They seem to commit as little time as possible to the inn, and pursue other ventures, which makes this a pretty good deal for the owners. I expect an inn to provide some personal service but that wasn't the case here.
After checking ourselves in, and returning around dinner time, we didn't see an owner until we came back later in the night and didn't have any dinner, since we weren't aware the rest.'s generally close at 9:00. She didn't seem that concerned about us either. The breakfast was pretty bad and unhealthy, and we decided instead the second morning to eat in Pt Reyes, which has a very good bakery. Despite all that. it's a nice property in a pretty area with few inns, and the room we got was very quiet and very clean.
Overall, it wasn't worth the high price, and I'd seek other accommodations next time, such as one down the road. Indeed, my negative experience at the inn unfortunately colored an otherwise very nice trip to the area.
