The Abalone Inn is a beautifully romantic and scenic getaway.
Our hostess, Donna, and proprietor of the Inn, welcomed us warmly and graciously left us baskets of delicious local muffins and cheese and fruit each day.The rooms are very cozy, well appointed,and private with gorgeous views of Inverness and Point Reyes out every window.
We stayed in the top room.The gardens outside are lovely.The hot tub is very inviting at sunset and early evening.The setting immediately takes you away from the tick-tick-took world. We coudn't imagine a better vacation weekend.
