View From the Team: Celebrating Our Best of the County 2021 Winners

Best of the County Marin

Every year we look forward to recognizing stellar businesses in Marin County with our annual Best of the County awards — but this time, after surviving a Covid-19 year together, it feels even more joyous. Not only that, but for the first time, we’re celebrating businesses in both Marin County and the Bay Area that have been selected entirely by you, our loyal readers. We’re thrilled to honor these hardworking local businesses — from restaurants and interior designers to fitness studios and fashion boutiques — that perfected the pandemic pivot to keep us sane while staying safe over the past year.

Top Row: Hadley General Contractor, Inc.’s Jeff Hadley; Lifehouse’s Nancy Dow Moody. Bottom Row: The Balanced Abode’s Natalie Mardeusz, Casa Madrona’s Monica Cruz-Hernandez and Alex Stolle.

We tallied thousands of your votes, and we hope you enjoy seeing your top picks. Here at the Marin Magazine office, the staff can’t stop talking about the fabulous party we threw to fete this outstanding new crop of Best of the County winners. We nibbled delicious hors d’oeuvres provided by All Seasons Catering, mixed and mingled, sipped sparkling wine, and raised our glasses to toast to a promising year ahead. It was such a pleasure to celebrate in person again, and the buzz and excitement in the room was impossible to miss.
