Muir Beach — sublime beauty and countless opportunities for adventure, recreation or inspiration

Mountain House at Muir Beach is located in the private residential community of Muir Beach in Marin County California.  

While just a 30 minute drive from San Francisco this seaside community seems a world away from the activity and bustle of city life.

Here the visitor is surrounded by the natural beauty of the northern California coast at its best.  Rocky cliffs, steep hillsides and forested valleys with meandering trails are accessible within a walk of minutes.  The community is surrounded by the protected open space of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.  Popular Muir Woods National Monument is a 7 minute drive away from Mountain House and Stinson Beach is just 15 minutes north.

A 10 minute walk from Mountain House takes you down to Muir Beach, a favorite spot for locals and visitors alike.  Watch brown pelicans troop up the coast and dive bomb for fish amid the breakers, catch a glimpse of a sea anemone waving to you from the tide pools. Be enchanted by the heather in bloom across the hillsides in spring, or count whales in migration during the fall and early winter months. Countless opportunities for adventure await.

In the coming months, we will grow our list of resources, suggestions, and comments from visitors to share with you.  Check back often. In this fascinating community of Muir Beach even locals never seem to run out of new experiences to enjoy or share.
