We were looking for a good place to go hiking in Muir Woods. Mountain Home Inn is PERFECT for that! You can walk out the front door and set out on hiking paths to Muir Woods and Mount Tam. The room we had was small; a bed and one chair and dresser and not much more. The shower was spacious though. However, the room has a large private deck with comfy wooden chairs overlooking a fantastic view of trees and scenery! It was gorgeous. We spent a few minutes every morning and night enjoying the view.
The breakfasts are delicious, with a decent variety of options. We tried almost everything and it was all very good. However, I've never been to a Bed and Breakfast that pushed for a tip for breakfast before. That was a bit odd. We only had dinner there once. We chose the 3 course meal specialty of the day. A bit expensive, but every bite was fantastic.
The staff was very friendly and helpful, and had lots of advice for places to go.
The main downside was that it was a bit pricey. We also had a few annoyances; for example, they explained the dinner options, but never mentioned that they were closed for dinner on Monday and Tuesday. Nothing major.
If we go to Marin County again, we'll be staying here again!
