A lovely home. Very welcoming with beautiful amenities. Great infrastructure for kids with a basketball hoop and ping pong table and a swing set for the little ones and rooms with games and books. Thanks for a wonderful stay.
Incredible trip. 2 fox lodge is exactly in the middle of everything. We did a big hike at tamales point in the north one day and then a big hike by bass lake and Almere falls the second day. Easy access to point Reyes station for breakfast and great restaurants for dinner. So much wildlife - we saw tulle elk, a long tailed weasel, foxes and coyotes, Hawks, a fire belly newt, seals. In the morning, deer came through the yard. It was spectacular. The house sleeps a lot of people really well. The fire pit outside was a real treat. Easy arrival and departure. Couldn't ask for a better weekend. And our host was incredibly responsive when needed. Thanks so much.
We had a wonderful weekend stay here. The house was everything I thought it would be & David was a pleasure to coordinate with. I really appreciated his responsiveness & clear communication. I strongly recommended a stay here if you're looking for a large, comfortable home in the beautiful Inverness area.
What does the Fox say? LOVED the house and can't wait to rent it again. Spacious, open, fully operational kitchen, most comfy bed ever and if their wasn't a drought in CA, I would stayed in the shower in the master suite all day. It was bigger than my entire apt in NY. The decor is a nice blend of rustic and modern and live all the fox accoutrements. 10 out of 10.
Incredible home in a perfectly remote setting. Felt a million miles away from it all, while only being minutes to the shops in Inverness and downtown Pt. Reyes. Cozy, cabin feel with a gourmet kitchen that invites culinary adventure, I can highly recommend this home for a large group getaway.
Fox Lodge exceeded all my expectations! This is a beautifully crafted house that's been thoughtfully and tastefully designed. Its high ceilings and spacious rooms, that fill with light in the day, made a comfortable home for our group over a long weekend.
Dave has clearly thought out and provided all that a group might need during their stay: a well stocked kitchen, plenty of extra towels and toiletries in the bathrooms, fire wood a the ready, and the game closet + a basement ping pong table helped keep us entertained at night.
The house is also wonderfully located! It's just minutes from Point Reyes Station where there's a great market and some cute shops, and a short drive to a beautiful beach + some amazing hiking routes. It's also very near Tomales Bay Oyster Co where you can (and should) eat your weight in delicious oysters.
My group had a great stay at Fox Lodge, and Dave was the perfect host. He was prompt and helpful in his response to my request and all of my questions. I would highly recommend Fox Lodge to any group/family that's looking to stay near beautiful Point Reyes. I could not have been happier with my time there.
About the Host, David
Originally from Wisconsin, I have lived in San Francisco for the past twenty+ years. I took my love of the outdoors growing up to Alaska where I spent six years commercial fishing and traveling the world in the off season. I currently work in real estate and have opened up two restaurants in SF (Hog and Rocks and Hi Lo).
I discovered Point Reyes years ago and am still amazed that we have access to such incredible beauty less than an hour from the city.
