Horse back riding also possible. Danehill is a horse breeding facility with stables and riding arenas and we offer  natural horsemanship lessons and guided rides for more advanced riders.

Danehill Manor is a STRESS FREE ZONE. Many guests have referred to it is "Paradise on Earth" and feel refreshed after a stay in the retreat. Nicasio is a secret gem - packed away in a beautiful valley - only  10-20 minutes drive from Marin suburbs or Point Reyes Station which offer lovely farmers' markets, locally grown organic produce, fabulous cheeses and great dining opportunities.

What to do while staying at Danehill Manor

We offer private gourmet dinners served in the Grand Room , but needs to be arranged in advance - made by locally grown produce and great meats and fish. Locally harvested  oysters  with a glass of champagne sitting on your terrace while watching the sunset is an all time favorite..

Hike around the property on the deer and horse trails. Or walk down to the Nicasio Reservoir to your private shore to fish and enjoy the tranquility. Bike or drive out in Point Reyes National Seashore  with fabulous nature, wildflowers in the spring,, elks, deer, birds.- After a short drive West to beautiful beaches in the Point Reyes National Seashore along the Pacific Ocean you will experience seals and whales that travel up  North to mate and down the coast with their calves (seasonal). Recently I saw a whole school of  2-300 dolphins jumping following the shoreline while riding at Limantour Beach. A kayak trip on Tomales Bay to isolated beaches that can only be accessed from the water has been a favorite of several guests. Biking. Horseback - also people with little horseback riding experience can rent horses at Five Brooks, Point Reyes Arabian AdventuresOyster Farms a few minutes drive away from Danehill will be a love; experience along hwy 1 at Tomales Bay.  

A vacation can be a lovely combination  of nature experiences which you will live in the middle of and city adventures.Fun and interesting - even educational -  for a family - as well as a relaxing and rejuvenating experience for grown ups. Danehill's host can guide you to make the stay  at Danehill Manor a special and memorable experience for all. A visit to  the nearby San Fransisco Bay, Tiburon, Angel Island and Sausalito or  Muir woods with the giant sequoia trees are favorite destinations for many.
