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.
