Olema - find a bed and breakfast, country inn or small hotel

Olema - which means coyote was so named by the Miwok Indians and first known residents of what is now Olema. Some 110 or so former Miwok Indian settlements have been identified on the Point Reyes peninsula alone.

There is plenty of history around this coastal town. At the corner of Sir Francis Drake Boulevard and Highway 1, the Olema Inn and restaurant dates to the area's original Spanish land grantee, Rafael Garcia, who opened the establishment on July 4, 1876. His son later gambled it away.

These days Olema has a few shops, two restaurants, a lodge, several bed and breakfasts, a large campground, and a large retreat for the Vedanta Society (a precursor to Hinduism). Its peaceful atmosphere along with gracious hospitality and fine food make this a favorite getaway for Bay Area residents.
