Nick’s Cove & Cottages
Just an hour north of the Golden Gate Bridge, the 1930’s-era fishing lodge looks straight out of an Edward Hopper painting with its rusted gas pumps and vintage Coca-Cola signs. Details that in lesser hands might seem cloying—shell-frame mirrors; mounted moose heads—fit naturally in this rustic corner of Marin. Our favorite cabin is the Bandit’s Bungalow, a two-bedroom suite with handsome wainscoting and beadboard, wraparound windows, and a claw-foot tub.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
