This was our 5th stay. We stayed in the Stephanie Hideaway room. Loved the room, food and the staffs. We are planning on coming back in July for our anniversary. :-)

We were recently married in the gazebo. Every effort was made to make our day special. From Brian's help with ceremony, Sandy's great photos and their attention to detail, our wedding was perfect. The rest of the staff from servers to room attendants to Eloisa in the office, we felt pampered and relaxed. Will DEFINITELY be back.

Staying at the Marin House was an outstanding experience for me and my wife. The food was great, the staff was outstanding and friendly, and the ambiance was all anyone could ask for. We plan on going back later on this summer for another visit. I highly recommend the Marin house to anyone looking to be pampered.
