Nick’s Cove is the perfect place to slow down and enjoy a short getaway with kids. Located on Tomales Bay just outside Point Reyes, Nick’s Cove, a former fishing village dating back to the 1930s,  is comprised of 12 historic cottages that exude seaside charm. Waterfront rooms are a huge treat with spacious sleeping and living areas paired with private decks. There’s a large beach complete with swing and a great pier complete with a comfortable boathouse perfect for playing board games with the kids or just sitting by the fire. The onsite restaurant is a locals favorite and serves delicious food from the region (and their onsite vegetable garden). Nick’s Cove makes a perfect base to explore this gorgeous stretch of the Northern California.
