The romantic escape over the hills to the beach. . . an inn capturing the spirit of 16th century England’s west country awaits you.

Barely 20 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge, the hospitable Pelican Inn rests at Muir Beach in the sea-blown fog, among the pines and alders, the honeysuckle and jasmine … a lodging refuge between the ocean, Muir Woods and the Northern California National Recreational Area parks.

The Pelican opens its doors to you for the fellowship of its Tudor bar, country cooking, overnight lodging or for a getaway of carefree feasting and relaxation.



Exclusive use closures

Please note, at 2pm the inn stops service to the general public on the following days:

Boxing Day, the day after Christmas, is always a busy one at the inn. Traditionally, Boxing Day was the first weekday after Christmas during which time tradesmen, postmen, servants and errand-boys would receive a “Christmas Box” from their employers. . In modern times, Boxing Day has become a consumer-minded holiday in which many shoppes host massive sales throughout the world. At Pelican Inn, we take this opportunity to collect donations for folks who might need a Christmas box of their own. We’ll have a donation box at the front desk where you can drop off a thoughtful gift for someone in need. . Today, December 26th, we will be open for usual business hours (11:30 am to 9:00 pm) and will be serving our Pub Grub menu only, all day. . #pelicaninn #muirbeach #visitmarin #marin #alwayssf


Burns Night

Now that the New Year has become new again, we look forward to all things to come including our annual Robert Burns celebration. Join us as we feast on haggis and roast beef while we listen to the poetry of ‘Ol Robby Burns. Burns Night is an age old tradition that dates back to the 19th century. Its inception began on July 21st 1801 when a small group of Burns’ friends gathered at Burns Cottage on the fifth anniversary of his death to celebrate the good Bard of Ayrshire. That tradition has proudly carried on in Scottish and English homes ever since. Burns night at the Pelican Inn will be held on Saturday the 20th of January 2018. Please make reservations with our front desk @ 415 383 6000.”
