we found fern cottage a lovely, quiet, secluded place to spend a few days. the cottage has been nicely updated with new lighting, and a kitchen that was very well outfitted. meg was very responsive. it was a little too cool during our visit to enjoy the ample deck, but we greatly enjoyed the restful view of tomales bay thru the windows. its access to the seashore is excellent and we would be delighted to book it again.
Alex and Meg's home was just beautiful! It's the perfect spot to enjoy Point Reyes. The views from the porch are stunning, and its location makes it quiet and private. It's less than a mile to all Inverness has to offer, especially the Saltwater Oyster Depot, and a very easy drive away from all the best Point Reyes hikes and sights. Highly recommend!
Fern Cottage provides a secluded feel yet is not too far from town.....very relaxing and just the right distance from the City for a weekend getaway.
We came to this warm welcoming home after an afternoon at one of Point Reyes beaches. The first thing my husband and myself wanted to do was to sit on the gorgeous deck facing the water which you could still see through the trees while our teenage kids went right for the chocolate which was left on a tray by the host. Thank you, you made my daughter smile. The home was very cozy and we felt right at home.
Simply wonderful. Needed 3 quiet days in the woods and this sweet place more than delivered. Take your road bike if you ride. Amazing 45 miler to/from the lighthouse. Being in solitude but with the convenience of pt Reyes minutes away.... 11 out of 10 stars for this spot and place! Can't wait to return.
We picked this place to enjoy quietness. We definitely received what we came here for. Host is responsive. Check in is very easy; host is considerate to confirm if I received all the info I need. One of the light bulbs in the bathroom was out, we didn't think it was big deal to bother host; we just switched with a kitchen one and let host know after we left. Host apologized for the inconvenience and offered discount for next stay. I appreciate host politeness.
Thank you Szu! I appreciated your questions and feedback before and during your stay. Without this we can not fully accommodate our guests. Fern Cottage is a sweet spot in Inverness and has everything you need for an incredible West Marin experience!
Thank you again,
The place was great, easy to find, clean and cozy, the view was cool but it was really about the property. A place where you can truly relax. Close to it all perfectly hidden in the trees. Great experience, would stay there again!!!
