A world away is closer than you think…

Romantic Point Reyes Getaway

Located one-half mile from the entrance to Point Reyes National Seashore, Olema Cottages is a perfect home base from which to explore hiking trails and spectacular beaches.

It’s easy to escape the city for a few nights or plan a week-long retreat. It’s just a one-hour scenic drive north of San Francisco and once you get here, you’ll feel a world away!

A sky full of stars

Remember the night sky without city lights? We’re just an hour away, and yet our night sky is full of stars. Along with all those stars overhead, we also have other gifts of nature. The night air smells of ocean breezes mingled with earth, the deep woods up on the ridge and the heady scent of flowers growing in our lush garden. You’ll find it’s easy and natural to slow down here, and relax.

Pristine beaches

Whether you’re whale watching on the headlands or kayaking Tomales Bay, our coastal California location is pure enchantment. Take a walk on Limantour Beach, head over to Chimney Rock to spot newborn elephant seals, or hike along the majestic Pacific Ocean out to the Point and see herds of elk. 

Easy to get to

We’re an easy one hour drive over the bridge from San Francisco, and about the same distance from the East Bay. Coming from Sacramento? It’s less than two hours. Get in your car, pop in your favorite music, and before you know it, you’ll be here!
