The space
Welcome to the Inverness A-Frame!

The A- Frame and surrounding property are the ideal locale for an intimate celebration, writer’s retreats, creative workshops, adventuring, or reading by the fire.

We are doing all we can to keep us, you and our cleaners safe from Covid-19. If you or anyone in your family or workplace has tested positive or displaying Covid-19 symptoms please stay at home. We recommend you purchase travel insurance as we can’t refund if you need to cancel as we have already blocked the dates for you.

We created this space as a personal sanctuary from our busy city lives and a place to re-charge in a truly gorgeous space with the wilds of West Marin just outside our doorstep.

Please be sure to read the full detailed description below and explore our photos- and feel free to contact us with any additional comments and questions.

The A-Frame is nestled on the Inverness Ridge minutes from the wonders of Tomales Bay. Although once you arrive you will likely not want to leave, if you care to venture out there are nearby beaches and trails where you can spend your days hiking, surfing, kayaking, or simply dreaming beneath the stars. We are about a 5 minute drive or lovely walk equidistant between the three sweet little towns of Point Reyes, Olema, and Inverness - and a scenic drive just over an hour from San Francisco or Oakland. Although you will mostly hear birds and the wind through the leaves, ambient sounds from the highway can sometimes be heard.

The Cabin

Built in the early 1970s with local Douglas Fir from a classic A-Frame floorpan the onyx building cuts a dramatic pose amongst the lush green trees.

The interior of the a-frame was lovingly remodeled from top to bottom by one of the owners- a local interior designer with BLYTHE DESIGN CO .. known for her warm and eclectic style around the Bay Area and beyond.

Modern bohemian furniture and hand-made artifacts, art, and accessories - many from local makers - adorn the cabin.

The first floor features new rustic oak floors, two-story soaring triangular windows, an airy open kitchen with a limestone countertop, new white appliances and a farmhouse table with comfy eames chairs and a custom bench for long chats over dinner. We have a pour over coffee maker as well as a French press. Kitchen equipped with lots of pots and pans for baking and cooking. No microwave or electric kettle.. take it slow here:)

NOTE: NO AIR CONDITIONER .. we have fans in the bedrooms ..Most Northern Cali homes don't A/C ..
A new sofa next to the wood burning fireplace easily converts into two single beds or the pop-up trundle joins to make a queen bed for sleeping. Or just lounge by the fire with your feet up and a laptop to turn the cabin into an ideal remote office.

A record player and an eclectic collection of LPs and nature inspired books for you to enjoy live on the shelves under the stairs (please do not take any with you and leave for others to enjoy). Note: we have no TV!

Towards the back of the cabin is a lovely bedroom with a queen bed and new Keetsa eco-friendly organic mattress.

Outside the bedroom door is a full bathroom with a wall hung sink, clawfoot tub with stand up shower, and cement encaustic tiles from Commune Design.

A mudroom for boots and wet shoes leads out to the back deck that holds two double rustic wood chairs and a view of local ferns and newly planted huckleberry bushes.

Upstairs is a mezzanine loft with a killer view of Black Mountain, a rattan hanging chair, and a super comfy L- shaped custom daybed perfect for an adult and child or a few kiddos (all children sleeping on our furniture must be potty trained)- you are welcome to bring a pop- up crib for the young un’s.

Through the back there is a WC with a vintage sink and patterned encaustic tiles across the hall from a shower room encased in Heath tile and large new showerhead.

The master bedroom has a light and airy California Modern vibe styled in neutral tones with a queen bed and new Keetsa mattress, dreamy bedding from local shop Coyuchi, and a huge triangular window that frames the trees outside. After dark it is the ultimate place to gaze at the night sky.
Note: there are no window coverings in this room. It would be a sin to cover up the view.. only the moon and squirrels will be able to see in, as it is at the back of the house high above the deck. If you are sensitive to light, bring an eye mask if sleeping anywhere but the downstairs bedroom.

Although not ADA compliant down to the letter, the entrance of the A-Frame is equipped to acommodate wheelchairs or walkers- there is a ramp that leads to the front door and the downstairs bathroom sink is wall mounted for easy access.

The A-Frame is a sanctuary for all to rest, recharge and create. Designed with a 'slow' pace in mind, our hope is that you enjoy every part of your stay; from making breakfast in our open kitchen, to choosing the perfect record to put on as the sun sets, or by relaxing on the deck in the heated seats under a moonlit sky. When the weather turns enjoy watching the storm pass over the mountain cozy by the fire with hot toddy in hand.

The Exterior

There is a stunning view of Black Mountain from our huge deck equipped with a custom outdoor dining table made from local timber, grill (currently not available for use due to local fire danger) and two heated concrete seats (you will never want to get up!) When here you will likely share the forest with foxes, deer, and owls- sightings from the deck and our land are frequent.

Although gatherings or events are strictly prohibited without previous permission, the deck is an ideal locale for a small quiet dinner, yoga class, or creative arts workshop (contact host for more information on renting the cabin for a class or workshop).

The cabin is across the street from a walking path that leads to the towering trees and coastal trails that make up the Bear Valley wilderness. (Note- this trail is closed due to a recent fire)

There is a tent on property that has taken on some water... best to stay out of for now. - NO EXTRA UNATHORIZED GUESTS can sleep there.

There is also a detached art studio/play space you are welcome to use. Feel free to play with the art supplies that are there- but please don’t take any with you or into the house.
It is a charming vintage art studio- check it out before sending kiddos out to play.
