The West Point Inn, together with its adjacent cabins and landscape features, is a unique and rare surviving example of a San Francisco Bay Area rustic mountain lodge. The lodge is an example of the the Bay Area Shingle architectural style. The one-room cabins are examples rustic vernacular design.

The complex was constructed in the era of train travel and during a period when hiking was among the most popular recreational pursuits.

The inn was a way station on the Mt. Tamalpais & Muir Woods Railway and a hub for stagecoach service to Willow Camp.
