How about nearby lodging and restaurants?

First of all, remember that Walker Creek Ranch is about 25 minutes on curvy back roads from the nearest large towns, Petaluma and Novato, and 15 minutes away from the nearest small store/deli in Marshall.

That said, you can get information about Petaluma services from www.petalumachamber.com, Novato from www.novatochamber.com, and West Marin from www.pointreyes.org.

We are partnering with Marconi Conference Center to offer rooms at their facility in nearby Marshall for a deeply discounted price; when this is available you will see more info on the What's New page.

Other nearby lodging can be found at vacation rentals in the Marshall area (www.westmarinnetwork.com; www.tomalesbay.com; www.themermaidshouse.com; you can find more by searching for Marshall vacation rentals). Motels in Petaluma or Novato are farther away but less expensive.

The closest restaurants are in Marshall: Nick’s Cove is open 7 days a week but pricey (www.nickscove.com); the Marshall Store is open from 10 to 4 and serves great food at good prices (www.themarshallstore.com). Both of these are on the waterfront with great ambience. And there are many places to choose from in Petaluma or Novato, Point Reyes Station, etc.
