Nick's Cove on Tomales Bay( Genaro Molina / Los Angeles Times )
Hotel rooms often are boring places you have to put up with just to explore some place exciting. At Nick's Cove, a new complex on Tomales Bay an hour or so north of San Francisco, you could be perfectly happy spending most of your time just exploring the hotel rooms.
Not that you'd actually call any of these places "hotel rooms."
A string of a dozen cabins, cottages and other assorted structures stretched alongside Highway 1 just north of the town of Point Reyes, Nick's Cove is a kind of Ralph Lauren meets Northern California fever dream of a resort.
