A Little About Us

The Inn is located in one of many historic buildings that make up the picturesque town of San Anselmo. The building was constructed in 1908 and was physically moved to the present location in 1925. A boarding house or hotel has operated in it continuously since then.

San Anselmo’s history is closely tied to its prominence as a junction on the North Coast Pacific Railroad (later the Northwestern Pacific). The railroad, completed in 1875, and our temperate climate drew visitors from San Francisco for a sunny break from summertime fog. The town began to grow and develop when the San Francisco Theological Seminary moved to the area in 1892; the Seminary’s buildings are architecturally and historically significant and are town landmarks. San Anselmo was incorporated in 1907 after an influx of refugees from the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire built permanent homes.

The town is now home to small businesses of every kind. The small-town feel is ever-present: strolling through town you’ll find independent book sellers, clothing boutiques, novelties, great food, and friendly people.
