Welcome to The Piper's Bag - offering ya a wee bit o' Scotland right here in California! Adored by generations of folks for its generous size and location, our home boasts six charming bedrooms, each with its own full bath! Ideal for family get-togethers, retreats, and small gatherings. Exceptionally located in Inverness, at the entrance of the Point Reyes National Seashore. The endless enjoyment of pristine nature and farm-to-table living are all within walking distance from this magical home.

The space
The Piper's Bag was originally built in 1904 as a boarding house. In the decades since it has served as a private residence, as well as a beloved bed and breakfast. Ideally situated on a peaceful, tree-lined street, this spacious three-story home now serves as a whole-house vacation rental, boasting loads of British charm!

The Piper's Bag is ideal for small gatherings of families or couples, even small groups that just need more space to spread out. A large common area on the second floor holds a huge living room and dining area that has views of the front and back yards, both fenced and private. Off the living area is a sizeable reading room with huge windows framing a stunning, mature Japanese Maple tree in the front yard. Through the reading room, you reach the kitchen, which opens up to the backyard for additional entertaining space.

Guests can look forward to six bedrooms, each with its own private bath! Each suite was thoughtfully designed to tell you a different story about this beautiful home's history. The Piper's Bag has been lovingly kept by all its owners throughout the decades, and we have gone to extra lengths to make sure every detail is worth savoring. You really couldn't want for more!

Whether your time with us is a quick weekend escape or an extended period of relaxing and exploring the local sights and flavors, we know you will fall in love with the Scottish charm of The Piper's Bag as your home base!

(Whenever possible, we take pride in selecting non-toxic products for our home. You can look forward to Keetsa mattresses and mattress toppers, as well as organic bedding. We only use the best in cleaning and laundry supplies and have stocked organic EO shampoo, conditioner and shower gel for your visit. Enjoy!)

Where you’ll be

Inverness, California, United States

West Marin and the town of Inverness are pure magic! Our beautiful *gem* of a home is tucked up off a tree-lined street in a quiet residential neighborhood, right around the corner from the main drag. It offers privacy and space, while still being close to everything you could want. Inverness is an easy walk with two restaurants, a gift shop selling fresh coffee, and a grocery store. Head away from town and into the 'First Valley' for a stroll in the neighborhood or a trek up along fire trails. The closest beach is Chicken Ranch which is a one-mile walk or drive. Our neighbors have chosen this area for the peace and quiet it offers and we expect our guests to respect and honor this.
