Point Reyes Lighthouse and Seashore have been along the way from Bolinas to Bodega Bay for me in the past… A lovely little town along the coast…
If you want to give yourself and your dog a gift, visit Point Reyes whether for a holiday, girlfriends getaway, wedding, or just because occasion…
One of the pet friendly places in town, at Point Reyes Station is on the Old Point Reyes Schoolhouse Compound… we stayed at the Barn’s Loft, a lovely, compact room with kitchen, and great views from every window… a gas fireplace kept us cozy throughout the cold and rainy weather…. Paintings by Karen, the proprietor, are on the walls… and there is a delightful courtyard, with BBQ and fenced so that puppy can play… also the shower in the bathroom is divine as is the Organic Lavendar Salt in the kitchen cupboard.
Two other rooms are for larger groups, Grays Retreat and Jasmine’s Cottage… all of the rooms are pet friendly and kid friendly, there is an old sheepwagon that looks like fun for the children. Gray’s retreat has two private patios and each of the rooms has a large book collection of local info about cats, dogs, chickens, whales and nature.
each of the accommodations are private, serene and within walking distance to town. The entire compound reminds me of a French country inn.
In town, there are several pet friendly stores and restaurants as well as a doggie area where puppies can play. Guests can gather their own fresh groceries at Tomales Bay Food Company, Cowgirl Cheese Company, Toby’s Feed Barn and the Bovine Bakery.
On the trails, doggies are mostly not allowed not even on leash and there are a few nearby beaches for pups to play including Limantour.
There are two local weekly newspapers chock filled with community info Point Reyes Light and the Citizen.
Other pet friendly inns include Olema Inn.
