Rancho Nicasio is the perfect venue for corporate events, private parties, company picnics, weddings & receptions.
Only "25 minutes from everywhere" this historic roadhouse, established in 1941,
is situated in the geographical center of Marin County.

Tucked away, among the rolling hills of West Marin County sits the quaint village of Nicasio.
Nicasio, which means “the hidden one”, is a town that has been unspoiled by time.
The town,
has seen people come & go yet has not lost many of the characteristics that it possessed approx. 150 years ago.
Located at the exact center of Marin County, Nicasio retains a vast amount of land that has seen slow & gradual progress.
These changes have not disturbed the tranquility that the town still possesses.
