The Neighborhood

Nicasio is a secret gem - packed away in a beautiful valley - only 10-20 minutes drive from Marin suburbs or Point Reyes Station which offer lovely farmers markets, locally grown organic produce, fabulous cheeses and great dining opportunities. A hike out in Point Reyes National Seashore with wildlife, elks, deer, birds - and on the close by beach at the Pacific Ocean seals and whales (seasonal) is a special experience. Recently I saw a whole school of 2-300 dolphins close to the beach while riding there. A kayak trip on Tomales Bay to isolated beaches that can only be accessed from the water has been a favorite of several guest. Biking. Horseback riding. Oyster Farms. A vacation can be a lovely combination of nature and city adventures, fun and interesting - even educational - for a family - as well as a relaxing and rejuvenating experience for grown ups. Danehill's host can guide you to make the stay at Danehill Manor a special and memorable experience for all. A visit to the nearby San Fransisco Bay, Tiburon, Angel Island and Sausalito or Muir woods with the giant sequoia trees are always favorite destinations for many.

My girlfriend and I spent a weekend with Karin and it was just an unforgettable weekend. The food was amazing, she cooks everything herself and is very attentive. The house is very beautiful and clean, I loved the old wood furniture and waking up to the horses outside our window.

Staying with Karin is more than just staying at a stunning bed and breakfast - it's a unique, multifaceted experience. It's a working horse ranch in an absolutely gorgeous location with horses nibbling outside your window. Delicious, home-cooked, gourmet food. Super peaceful environment. And in addition to all that, Karin herself is a unique and lovely human being who is generous in sharing her wisdom. You can learn all about her fascinating work with horses and dogs, or just cozy up and enjoy the beautiful views from your room. We had a fantastic time. Highly recommended!

Karin's beautiful manor is out of this world. The views, horses and dogs, the care and kindness, conversation over wine & cheese and starry nights will leave an impression like no other. You can also zip over to point reyes or tomales bay in no time if you want to explore. Thanks so much Karin - muito amor para voces!

Response from Karin:
Thank YOU so much for your lovely visit. Hosting guests like you and Cidalia gives me a smile on my face and I feel energized and "light" having been in your presence. Look forward to being together again in the not too distant future. Your culinary expertise, passion and interest as well as creativity nd love to make your home a "sanctuary and gathering point for friends and family go well with my concept of "living well". Hugs and much of the Danish "hygge" to you. (those words ARE related)

We had a lovely stay with Karin at her magical home. She was incredibly kind and welcoming and even had a pack n play for our toddler!

Response from Karin:
Was lovely to have your visit. Your little toddler impressed me a lot with her outgoing curiosity and courage. Hope you will come back another time. She will undoubtedly learn to communicate with the horses and do " horse whispering" - earning to be the trusting leader over the horses very quickly.

Karin was an excellent Host to my wife and me. She helped plan a nice secret weekend getaway for my wife's birthday. Before our stay she openly communicated about what options we had in terms of food, on site activities and nearby places that we could visit. She was very accomodating with our dietary preferences for her free breakfast menu as well as the dinner. We received a nice warm welcome with some beer and very comprehensive tour of the property. The property was beautiful and as the sun set the view of the horses grazing on the side of hill with the background of the lake was surreal. You get to enjoy this from the comfort of your bed as well. The entire property was designed by her and has a lot of character reflective of her attention to detail. The rooms and bathrooms were spot clean and very professionally setup, just as you would experience in a luxury hotel, just better :). In the morning she prepared for us a very delicious all organic breakfast. During our stay we aqlso signed up for dog training lessons, which she administered throughout our stay and also had a 1hr foucssed session. This has helped us a lot since we got from our trip. Overall an amazing stay and really grateful to Karin for making it special.

Bring clothes you don't mind getting dirty if you'd like to ride the horses or hike around.

Karin's home is truly amazing. We fell in love with her beautiful retreat overlooking the Nicasio Reservoir. Only a short drive from Marin and it was like being in another world. Surrounded by the beauty of nature, the views were stunning, it was such a treat to lay in a comfy cozy bed with a cup of coffee looking out to the view with her horses grazing just outside the window. Everything from the beautiful home, delicious breakfast, swimming pool and Hygge Tree house made for the perfect relaxing weekend getaway. Karin is such a lovely warm person she made us feel right at home and was so wonderful with my 3 year old daughter that she keeps asking when she can go visit again. It was short drive to visit Point Reyes Station, Olema and Beaches so great location to explore the coast. Highly recommended!
