A Historic Hotel in the Middle of Everywhere

Built by the Rein family in 1864 to provide lodging for coastal travelers, the Valley Ford Hotel has seen stagecoaches, the North Pacific Coast Railroad and now Coast Highway One roll across it's doorstep.

Situated one hour north of the Golden Gate Bridge, the inn is a convenient hub for coastal exploration.  Surrounded by Tomales Bay, Sonoma Coast Wine Country, Bodega Bay, Point Reyes, Dillon Beach, the Russian River and Redwood Forests, a variety of day trips lie before you.  Alternatively one could simply take in a book from one of the rocking chairs on the front porch and call it a day.

Rocker Oysterfeller's: A Farm to Fork Roadhouse


Serving up "Southern Comfort" cuisine, Rockers celebrates the bounty of ingredients from our surrounding farms, dairies, ranches and fisheries in a fun and convivial atmosphere.

Choose from the famous 1/2 lb. Stemple Creek Ranch Cheeseburgers to Free-Range Buttermilk Fried Chicken with Lagunitas Ale & Caraway Gravy or Flash Fried Dungeness Crab with Cajun Spices.  Don't miss our local Tomales Bay Oysters of course, either raw with Lemon-Honey-Jalapeno Mignonette or cooked up on the grill with your choice of three delicious preparations.

Craft cocktails, local spirits, beer and wine flow from the bar, but no worries, your room is just upstairs.
