Come Home to Nature

West Marin Experience
September 5-8, 2019



When was the last time you took an opportunity to fully reset?

Does life feel boring, stressful, or lackluster? Has your modern, urban lifestyle gotten so chaotic that you feel you've been separated from yourself? Are you longing for a change of pace, to explore new terrain, and to be rejuvenated by the sound of swaying trees, birdsong, and free time to play in nature? 

West Marin is calling.

Savor a 4-day nature immersion like no other, in magical West Marin County, at a historic ranch nestled on the edge of Tomales Bay and Point Reyes National Seashore.

This adventure has been created and curated with you in mind. It's a complete immersion experience for nature seekers and foodies in a region that blends agricultural traditions and the great outdoors seamlessly.

Whether you’re a local city-dweller in need of a staycation, or visiting California for the first time and looking to for a truly magical and authentic experience, book your spot today.

Who Are We?

Born-and-raised Marin locals, hiking buddies, and facilitators of immersive experiences. We are two nature buffs with the inside scoop on beautiful Bay Area locales, excited to show you the hidden gems of the West Coast.
