Why We Like This Place
For years, drivers heading south on Highway 101 through Novato have passed by a tile-roofed motor court that looks like a classic roadhouse from the 1940s. Under its canopy of ancient oak trees, and with a heavily wooded hill as its backdrop, Inn Marin has always seemed like something from the days before California became too crowded, too hectic, too fast.
Built in 1949 just as the roadhouse era was about to end, Inn Marin’s romantic aura has lingered for decades. Several years ago, two brothers who’d grown up in the hospitality industry succumbed to its charms. They bought it, oversaw a striking restoration, and made the property better looking than it had ever been. Within weeks, Inn Marin’s formerly whitewashed walls had burst into a medley of Mediterranean colors—ocher, mustard, yellow and tile-red—accented everywhere by orange-spiked bird of paradise flowers. The brothers added some new units, too, including four suites (two with Jacuzzis).
