Woodacre/San Geronimo/Nicasio

Woodacre/San Geronimo/Nicasio Links

Directly over the hill from Fairfax, you will come to the towns of San Geronimo and Woodacre. It wasn’t long ago that it seemed these were in the middle of nowhere. Now houses have sprung up in the limited buildable land, and people have discovered the quiet magic of the area.

In San Geronimo there is a public golf course that is a magnet for all county golfers. Also in this area you will find Spirit Rock, a mediation center with acres of land to wander, a quiet place to center yourself.

Woodacre is small community with a variety of homes. The people who live in this part of Marin like having a little breathing room. There is a decidedly rural feeling to Woodacre.

Nicasio is in the valley to the north. It is found down Lucas Valley Road. George Lucas’s Skywalker Ranch, which used to be the heart of his movie making empire, is located here. Much of the business that was once done at Skywalker, is now done at the new facilities at the Presidio in SF.

The town of Nicasio is a true delight. Ranch Nicasio features music and dinner and is an old time favorite. The one room school house is still in use today.

At the gateway to West Marin, these towns are a special secret. They are surrounded by much agricultural Trust Land and so they will remain rural for the foreseeable future. And that is a gift to us all.
