One of my favorite places to visit is Nick's Cove on Tomales Bay, about an hour north of the Golden Gate Bridge. The cabins at Nick's Cove are absolutely adorable and beautifully appointed.
Above is "Bandit's Bungalow." It is my favorite! Imagine waking up to a 180 degree view of Tomales Bay. Oh, and I love those gorgeous alabaster lamps.
"Bandit's Bungalow" has it's own sitting room and private dock. It has a great view of the pier.
Above is "Al's" cottage. I love the pine paneling and luxurious linens!
This cabin is called "Nicolina." It is shaped like a boat and is cantilevered right over the bay.
Sleeping here is the ultimate maritime experience!
This is the "Big Rock" cabin and it comes with it's own hand made copper soaking tub in the master bathroom.
This is what the four original, circa 1930 cabins looked like before restoration by Pat Kuleto.
And after with their new paint and decks. There are now five on the bay.
"Nicolina" was inspired by a 1930's hay scow that sat moored on the pilings at Nick's Cove for decades.
Look how cute they are from the road. Love the picket fences.
They all come with gorgeous master bathrooms. Like this one in the "Fisherman's Cottage" located across the road.
What a gorgeous sunset!
It is so quiet here. Nick's Cove is located on Highway 1 in the tiny village of Marshall.
Besides the five little bayside cottages, there are seven new cottages across the road.
The restaurant anchors it all. It is the quintessential roadhouse restaurant, specializing in oysters and fresh seafood.
The inside is decorated with an outdoorsman feel. Lots of deer trophies line the walls.
After dinner, before retiring to your little cottage on the bay, a walk on the pier is a must!
A few years ago, my best friend Maureen and I celebrated our birthday with our husbands here. Although we didn't stay in the cabins, we enjoyed a nice leisurely lunch overlooking Tomales Bay in February.

I'm linking up to Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday.
Thanks Susan for hosting!
I'm also joining Watery Wednesday.
How beautiful...love the cottages and that first bed looks like you would sink all the way around your ears. Lovely.
Lovely! What a nice escape with gorgeous views all around!!
Gee Delores, that is soooo inviting. I love being by the water, not so sure about OVER it, though! The rooms and that bathroom are gorgeous. The Mr. and I will have to stay there sometime. We are due another getaway very soon. Hmmmmm. I think I'll go visit their website right now! Thanks for the tip!

Hi Delores, What great cottages...and the views!
The bathroom with claw foot tub is gorgeous.
Oh, beautiful!! I would love staying there!
What a nice mini-beach holiday, Delores!!! Really, the quintessential beach holiday, only stepped up to a really luxurious cottage. Thanks for the day dream! xx Suzanne
Oh Delores I love this spot. Who needs to go someplace tropical? I could just spend hours on those decks.
How fabulous!! What a perfect getaway. These cabins are adorable. Thanks for posting this!
Oh my gosh...haven't been there for years! There and Bolinas. Might be a nice place to kayak next weekend! Thanks for the beautiful photos.
I'm adding Nick's Cove as my places to visit. Watching golf over the weekend I was drooling over Monterrey, very beautiful. Must. make. another. trip. now.
Very cool Delores! The spaces are wonderful, but the view, now that's the best part!
I would be as happy as a bug in a rug there... thanks for sharing, I so enjoyed the tour.
i had no idea those cabins were available, i have driven by often, cute cute cute! makes me want to book them when the summer heat cranks up at my house, a nice cool respite. so glad you shared them!
This place is beautiful! It makes me want to take a road trip right now and go on vacation...there. Thanks for stopping by!
Now I could get used to that. :) Interesting how they offer so much more on the inside than you would guess from the outside looking in.
It looks soooo inviting and peaceful. What a beautiful place!
Thank you for your visit and comment on my wordless, watery, outdoor Wednesday post.
Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week!
Oh, my! How beautiful and relaxing that looks. I would love to spend a getaway there!
Thanks for the tour! Your shots really provide a wonderful view into this beautiful spot. Now I want to go there! Very charming WW post!
What a dreamy place Delores. My favorite is the "Nicolina", but that's probably because my father was a Sea Captain.
What a terrific post Delores! I am definitely going to pay a visit to Nick's Cove. Dan is a big lover of the water so I know he will fall in love with this place. I cannot wait to share it with him.
I would love to visit and stay one of this cottage one perfect day...in my dreams....hehehe!
A beuatiful place to relax.
Well that settles it. Next time our friends invite us to come out west, we're heading for those cottages. We love that informal style plus the luxe baths. It's always such a pleasure to see what's on your blog. Jane F.
I would love to be there right now! It is 100+ in Texas today...ugh! Such a lovely and COOL setting;)!
Oh my goodness! Those all look amazing!
What a wonderful place to stay! I love it! Those cabins would be so fun and comfy to stay in.
I LOVE these cottages! I want to be there tonight!! Wonderful post - thanks for the tip. Putting their website in my dream trips file.
I would say February is a great time to go to the beach..In summer, I prefer the mountains...This little village is so far away from me...If it was close, I'd be packing for a weekend there.
Oh, I would love to stay in the Nicolina. What a charming little get away it is. I love your header. I've only been to northern Cal once. But I have to say it's one of the most beautiful places I've been to. I'm following you too!
Oh my, this is so neat! I've never heard of Nick's Cove before, thanks so much for sharing! I'd have a hard time selecting the cottage in which to stay...they are all so inviting. I love the views from them all!
Thanks too stopping by to visit!

Wow, what cool little cottages. And the views are just stunning. A great get away!
That looks like a great place. I've been to Tomales Bay Oyster Company to get fresh oysters. It's so fun to get a group together and go buy a big bag of raw oysters and sit on the picnic tables and eat them. I just have a hard time finding friends that like raw oysters! And then finding a friend that's good a shucking them is even harder! haha!
Such charm! Love the cute little painted cabins. laurie
Lovely spot - the cabins, view food...great find!
Alright Delores!! A new place on the water to check out for a weekend away, I have never heard of this, thank you so much for bringing it to my attention. So charming and close to home. Kathysue
