TOMALES BAY, CALIF. — If you find the charms of intimate boutique lodgings such as Nick’s Cove (nickscove.com) captivating, stick around when the chef begins preparing dinner. Count on exotic culinary adventures–and sweet dreams!
A local institution for more than 80 years, Nick’s Cove began as a humble fish shack and roadhouse but has transformed into an internationally-renowned travel destination approx. 90 minutes north of San Francisco and 30 minutes south of Bodega Bay. Nick’s Cove Restaurant, Oyster Bar & Cottages overlooking the pristine coastline of Tomales Bay and Point Reyes National Seashore, is known for its farm-to-table cuisine and 12 unique bungalows and cottages. Authentically rustic, accommodations contain luxury bedding and fixtures to fit the look & mood of each character-filled space. A personal favorite is Bandit’s Bungalow named after the Hollywood bank robber movie filmed at Nick’s Cove.
Spend the night sleeping near the placid bay after dining on an intoxicating meal, or just drop by for out-of-this-world cuisine. This summer Nick’s Cove hosts Vintners’ Dinners on the first Thursday of every month, beginning June 7, 2012 with Keller Estate. Thumbprint Cellars on July 5th, Halleck Vineyard on August 2nd, Freemark Abbey on September 6th, Lagunitas Brewery on October 4th, Patz & Hall on November 1st and Boheme on December 6th are special occasions to explore this destination. Or just go any time and try Nick’s Cove Paella. OMG!
