Maya Visits Nick's Cove 2020

DogTrekker's Maya at Ruthie's Cabin, Nick's Cove

In Maya’s first trip since early March to the coast, she and her uprights stayed at Nick’s Cove in Marshall, Marin County, on beautiful Tomales Bay.

The Nick’s team has been trained in visitor protection while maintaining the guest experience they have always offered humans and pets. Everything was touchless from check-in to ordering to check-out. Staff, guests and visitors all wore face coverings during our recent stay.
While the Nick’s Cove Restaurant is closed inside, the outside dining area along the pier is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, having a cocktail as the sun goes down or watching the kids and dogs frolic in the bay. more »

The inn, an off-the-grid haven built alongside a long-defunct railroad, sits at a lofty 1,785 feet elevation, offering sweeping views of the landscapes and seascapes below. more »
