Car: Necessary

West Novato is serene and quiet -- away from the noise of the highway. A two minute drive to lakes and pasture lands with beautiful views of Mt Burdell and popular walking paths.

Indian Valley golf course on Stafford lake is a 5 minute drive west. Five more minutes you can visit The Marin French Cheese Company, which is the oldest cheese manufacturer in the USA and a unique part of American history . Known by locals as The Cheese Factory and by its brand name, Rouge et Noir , Marin French has produced hand-crafted Artisan soft-ripened cheese since 1865.

Drive another 20 minutes and you're in Point Reyes Station- home to Cow Girl Creamery, art galleries, and shops.

Old Town Novato has history museums, a fun Irish Pub (Finnegans), antique stores, Whole Foods, & many eclectic restaurants. Hop Monk Tavern is a popular entertainment venue with great food, and their own brewery. Another favorite is the historic Rancho Nicasio Road House owned by Bob Brown (famed manager of Huey Lewis and the News). Sometimes there are big surprise performers & only a 20 minute drive through beautiful West Marin. The Larkspur Ferry Terminal is 20 minutes south on 101. Ferries leave hourly for San Francisco but the Golden Gate Bridge is just a 30 minute drive.

Historic Sonoma Square and the beginning of Wine Country is a 20 minute drive. There are more than 370 wineries for you to enjoy in Sonoma County alone. Napa Wine Country-home to around 400 wineries-is just 30 minutes away.

When you arrive we'll offer dozens more places to see and experience-all that are within 45 minutes!
