Another wonderful trip to Manka's. We stayed in the Boathouse, too, and damned if they didn't help us with our luggage either. For those of you who stay in "the most expensive hotels" and need help with your luggage, please go somewhere else. It's tough enough getting a room at Manka's. And the coffee-maker worked just fine in October....thank heaven's I wasn't there in July. The place is very romantic and a touch quirky; expensive as well. But worth every penny if you're in the right mood! Breakfasts are incredible, even with the New York Times. The owners have just purchased the Olema Inn, a few minutes away, to continue the culinary traditions of Manka's that were cut short, or at least abbreviated, by the fire. Rooms too will be available at the Olema. Manka's is located about 60-90 minutes north of San Francisco and about the same distance from the Napa and Sonoma wineries. It is located off of Sir Francis Drake Blvd. on the way out to the Point Reyes Seashore (about a 20-30 minute drive) and about 10 minutes to Point Reyes Station. There is plenty to do in the area, at least for short periods. It is for peace and quiet and romance if you are in the mood. If you need room service go away.......!!
