The Inn Above The Clouds

Location, location, location. Since 1912 the views of primeval forests and cool blue Pacific at the Mountain Home Inn have welcomed visitors.

As one winds their way up the road to the Mountain Home Inn the aroma of eucalyptus and the proximity to the primeval forest invites relaxation. It is so beautiful it almost seems like a simulation. The sweet staff and comfy relaxed California decor at the inn are welcoming. In addition to incredible views there is proximity to legendary hiking trails. The Inn is literally 1.5 miles from the Muir Woods trail and is atop the Mt.Tamalpais ridge line.

Even better nature puts on show for free as the stars come out at night. When the fog rolls in across the Bay and city below it almost seems surreal. Meals may be enjoyed on the deck with views of the Bay and Mt.Tampalpais.

The wood burning fireplaces in the dining room and lounge encourage one to kick back and adjust or recoup from “ mountain time”. Help yourself to board games or pick up a book while you lounge. An impressive binder includes overview of local hikes and includes complimentary trail maps.

The Inn offers dining options several nights a week. A bar is open nightly. Breakfast is included in the room rate, tipping is highly encouraged.

Book in advance as the inn is small and particularly popular on weekends and in the summer. Parking is free for inn guests. Live music and local entertainment occur throughout the year.The Inn also hosts weddings.
