Olema and Pt. Reyes

The two small towns near the Marin Coast service the needs of visitors who come each year to Pt. Reyes National Seashore. With a population of 55, tiny Olema is a mere shadow of its former larger and more feisty self when the weekly steamer brought people and freight from San Francisco, and the bi-weekly stage ran to San Raphael. In the 1860s and 70s, Olema had six bars, two hotels, and a lusty and sometimes dangerous population. The cowboys from local ranches are well-behaved these days.

Pt. Reyes Station is a johnny-come-lately town -- founded in 1875. It was a stopping point on the narrow-gauge railway which wound its way through West Marin to Sausalito. At that time, the station was alone in the middle of a large pasture. The railway is gone but the village remains with a decided "old-west" atmosphere. The "Feed Barn" store is a main street landmark and the Old Western Saloon maintains the ambience.

Because of its location close to the Pt. Reyes National Seashore, there are several good places to stay in and near Olema. The best of these is Pt. Reyes Seashore Lodge, 10021 Costal Highway, a big country lodge built in a turn-of-the-century style with large rooms and suites, some with whirlpools & fireplaces. Free breakfast is provided. The lodge is next to a Pt. Reyes trail at Olema Creek.

Roundstone Farm, 9940 Sir Francis Drake Blvd. is a bed and breakfast home set in a working horse ranch. There are four comfortable rooms and full breakfast is served . The Olema Inn is an old hotel, built in 1876, offering distinctive period rooms and a fine restaurant.

Fernando's Hideaway in Pt. Reyes Station is a B&B , which has three rooms in a house and cottage with fireplaces & hot tub. Holly Tree Inn, aldo in Pt. Reyes Station, has five rooms with full breakfast in a Swedish atmosphere in 19 wooded acres with antique furnishings and gardens. There's a private cottage in the woods.
