About Lark Creek Inn:
Surrounded by towering redwoods, the sunny yellow house (built in 1888) is a thorough delight from its entryway gardens to its stone-floored sun porch. Out back, an umbrella-shaded, and heat-lamp warmed garden beside a meandering creek is the perfect spot for Sunday brunch or summertime dinner. A wood-burning brick oven is the focal point of the main dining room, where a glass ceiling lets the outdoors in. The Lark Creek Inn is available for private parties during the day, Monday through Friday, plus our popular weddings on Saturday.
