We’ve long been captivated by Margaret Grade and Daniel Delong’s distinctively moody guesthouses in West Marin, California. In addition to Sir & Star at Hotel Olema, Manka’s Inverness Lodge, and Manka’s Boathouse, the two are the proprietors of Druid’s Hall, once the former meeting hall of the United Ancient Order of Druids.

Like Sir & Star at Hotel Olema, Druid’s Hall is located in the hamlet of Olema (in fact, it’s just a half block away from Sir & Star). The couple bought the property in 2014 and have since updated it while maintaining its foothold in the past. They’ve filled the four-guestroom inn (there are three bedrooms in the main building, as well as a stand-alone cottage) with antiques and taxidermy, their signature style, and preserved the Druids’ reverence for the natural world.

Let’s have a look.

The great room is filled with curiosities, including a taxidermy bear and bobcat.
