I love the water. I love mountains. I do not love camping. Being outside is great - swimming, kayaking, hiking, biking. I'm all about outdoor activities, but once the physical activity is over, I want to retire to a high thread count bed, citrus flavored shower gel and a nice glass of wine in proper stemware. Unfortunately, outdoor enjoyment doesn't always pair with civilized accommodation. Retiring to a campground or bunk filled cabin is a sure enough way to ruin a good time in the great outdoors for me.
So perhaps you can imagine my trepidation with booking a trip to the pristine coastline of West Marin. I was ready for hiking, eating and exploring, but where could I stay to maximize my time in the area? There's more than enough campgrounds in the area, but as discussed, that would not a good trip make for me. Then I learned about Nick's Cove.
