No excuse necessary – rainy days on Tomales Bay are best spent inside snuggled up with your special someone in front of the warm fireplace. In spite of our recent dry years, sometimes Northern California acts like the rest of the world and gets typical winter weather, complete with clouds and rain. These are the days you want to be at Nick’s Cove – our wood-burning stoves, warm comfy beds and huge soaking tubs all add up to the perfect getaway where the outside world doesn’t intrude and you have nothing more to think about than what movie you’ll watch next. Here are two favorite ways to indulge this winter:
Let go of the guilt and be lazy. Yes, we just celebrated the New Year, and yes, we all made resolutions about how we’ll be good and work out and eat healthy, but it’s okay to throw that out the window and treat yourself to a rainy day getaway. Rainy days at Nick’s are perfect – they were designed to be an indulgence of the most wonderful sort. Start your day with the plan of not leaving the room if you can. Have some coffee and fresh pastries delivered to your room in the morning and add a mimosa to boot. Then it’s back to the bed – yes, we encourage you to spend a lot of time in bed – what’s the point of renting these luxurious cottages if you don’t get the most out of it?
Or bring the spa day to you. Yes, this is possible at Nick’s Cove! A private couples’ massage can be arranged right in the comfort of your own cottage. It’s best to call the innkeepers prior to your stay to make sure we have masseuses available, then they will provide the setup and breakdown so all you need to think about is relaxing with your special someone.
