The romantic escape over the hills to the beach. . . an inn capturing the spirit of 16th century England’s west country awaits you.

Barely 20 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge, the hospitable Pelican Inn rests at Muir Beach in the sea-blown fog, among the pines and alders, the honeysuckle and jasmine … a lodging refuge between the ocean, Muir Woods and the Northern California National Recreational Area parks.

The Pelican opens its doors to you for the fellowship of its Tudor bar, country cooking, overnight lodging or for a getaway of carefree feasting and relaxation.



Exclusive use closures

Please note, at 2pm the inn stops service to the general public on the following days:

In 1620 a small ship bearing the name Mayflower, left Plymouth, England in search of religious freedom and land ownership in the new world.

Sixty-six days later they made their landing in Massachusetts Bay and established the colony of Plymouth. More than a year later in November 1621 after their first successful corn harvest the settlers, often called “Pilgrims”, organized a feast and invited members of the local native tribe to enjoy the spoils of their labors.

That tradition of peace and unity has evolved into a yearly turkey-centric feast known as Thanksgiving and we, like the pilgrims, extend an invitation to you and yours at our table on Thanksgiving Day November 23rd.

We will be hosting a huge buffet full of all of the traditional fixings. Our first reservations will be joining us at 11:30 am and our last will be at 7:30 pm. Please call our front desk to secure your spot @ 415 383 6000.



The hotel is located a short walk or hike from a beautiful Northern California beach, Muir Beach, and a few minutes drive from Muir Woods National Park. It is a 20 minute drive from the Golden Gate Bridge on Highway 1.

Directions from Golden Gate Bridge: Proceed north on Highway 101. After five minutes, take the Stinson Beach / Highway 1 exit in Mill Valley. After 2/3rds mile, turn left at the Arco Station (3rd light), staying on Hwy. 1. Drive about 15 minutes. At bottom of hill—after miles of wilderness—the Inn is the first building on the left.
