Green Gulch is part of the San Francisco Zen Center and offers some overnight accommodations in a gorgeous setting within walking/rolling distance to Muir Beach. A stay here is more about the quiet ambiance and experience than the accommodations which are simple. You can stay in their guest facilities for a personal retreat and follow your own schedule, or join them for a multi-day workshop. A 2-night minimum is required and three vegetarian meals are included in the room rate. Organic coffee, tea and snacks are always available. In addition to its Zen training program, the center also manages an organic farm and gardens which are open to the public.
