Just got back after 8 days spent at Abalone Inn. Beautiful music when you walk in, lovely room, delicious organic breakfast (don't miss the homemade plum jam, while it lasts, and the eggs come from the chickens in the back yard), daisies everywhere, you can see the stars from the chairs in the garden, soothing hot tub, and on and on. Lots of ambiance. Gracious and attentive service, like you are staying with a friend who wants you to have a great time. Convenient to several restaurants (the food in Marin county is outstanding and usually organic) and numerous gorgeous beaches. I feel totally rejuvenated!!
