Rustic & accessible lodging with the grandest view

We usually don't find lodging that combines rustic and accessible elements available to wheelchair users but leave it up to our friend, Bonnie Lewkowicz, to share this little lodging gem with us.


Secluded among the trees on the upper south slope of Mt. Tamalpais, the historic West Point Inn was a brief stop on the “Crookedest Railroad in the World”, where passengers could meet a stagecoach bound for the beach. The railroad is gone now, but the West Point Inn remains as an "off the grid" haven for hikers and a monument to the rich historic heritage of our region. You can enjoy sweeping panoramic views of the East Bay, parts of San Francisco, the Marin Headlands, one tower of the Golden Gate Bridge, and out over the Pacific Ocean.

The Emig Cabin

The Emig Cabin

The best part is the Emig Cabin, a purposefully built accessible cabin (the other cabin and Inn rooms are not accessible) was built in summer 2017 and features a private bathroom with a roll-in shower, a double and twin bed, and a small porch.  Unlike the other cabins or guest rooms at the Inn, the Emig cabin has electricity, heat, and hot water. 

But the views are truly to die for, so don't go expecting a hotel experience.  It's a cabin that has been made tremendously accessible.  It’s best to make reservations by calling the innkeeper, 415-388-9955. Rates for non-members are $50 per person and require a two-person minimum per-cabin / per-night.  You can read more about the cabins and accessibility features HERE.
