The Space

Unique in the San Francisco Bay Area, On the Waterfront B&B is a bayside retreat on the western shore of spectacular Tomales Bay, a loch-like bay which creates the Point Reyes peninsula, home of the Point Reyes National Seashore and Tomales Bay State Park.

The views are breathtaking! On the Waterfront faces southeast, and from the room you can see both sunrise and the soft reflected light of sunset. When the tide is out, shorebirds, including egrets and great blue herons, can be seen just off the deck.

On the Waterfront offers privacy and tranquillity in an unparalleled setting overlooking the pristine waters of Tomales Bay and the beautiful rolling hills of west Marin County. We’re located on the famous tidelands of Inverness – our home is on a raised foundation, which means we are over the water when the tide is in, and over the intertidal zone when the tide is out. Ours is a true guest room. Although it has a private entrance and bath and is completely separate from the rest of the house, it is one corner of a charming Inverness residence.

The room is sunny and light, with:

•French doors opening onto a deck at bayside.
•Private entrance.
•Queen-sized bed.
•Full, private bath.
•iPhone/iPod stereo dock.
•Small TV with DVD but no cable.
•Shorebird entertainment.
•Refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, and a variety of coffee, teas, fruits, and nuts.
•Family-friendly.

The village of Inverness is a 10 minute walk. The town of Point Reyes Station is a 10 minute drive. Local amenities include some of the best restaurants in the Bay area, two excellent kayak facilities, horseback touring, and locally grown oysters. The Point Reyes National Seashore surrounds the Inverness residential area, with great hiking trails and an array of both bayside and ocean beaches in close proximity. San Francisco is 40 miles to the south. Between Inverness and San Francisco lies the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, home of Muir Woods and Mt. Tamalpais.

  • This wonderful room was a true find. The photo at the left is the same you'd see from the deck just outside the french doors from the room. Often staying at a B & B is positive experience with a nice room and common areas where it's nice to meet others staying in that abode. However, most traditional B & Bs I know of provide only those two options, common areas or your room. What we loved about this location was another option: your own private deck right ON the water to enjoy private time outside the room and yet not in a common/public area. We were there for our 35th Anniversary and look forward to a next visit.

  • Das Zimmer ist in einem auf Pfählen gebauten kleinen Haus direkt am Meer. Das Zimmer ist hell und man hat wirklich einen traumhaften Ausblick. Zudem ist es schön eingerichtet und sehr sauber.

    Für das Frühstück sind reichlich gutschmeckende Zutaten im Zimmer. Man kann dann auf der kleinen Terrasse direkt am Meer frühstücken. Ich kann das B&B nur empfehlen.

  • My daughter and I came here to spend some quiet time together outdoors. The location was perfect and the place really exceeded our expectations. The room was nicely put together with a good balance of rusticity and comfort. The bed and bedding were excellent and there was fresh fruit, Peet's coffee, organic yogurt (whole milk and fat free) and fresh flowers on the main room and bath, which gives an idea of the care and attention to details provided. The completely private deck was, as promise right on the water—at low tide the shorebirds were feeding at our feet and at high tide the waves lapped beneath us. The stars at night were magnificent.

  • I took my partner here for his birthday and we wanted to go somewhere serene. This was the perfect place to stay and being so close to the water was very calming. We appreciated the coffee and fruit left for us. For anyone who is planning on staying here, Perry's Deli nearby is a really awesome place to get some snacks.

  • On the Waterfront was a lovely setting on the bay. The directions were clear and the access was easy. It was a pleasant stay. Ample fruit and breakfast supplies were provided as an added bonus. We recommend it to others.

  • This place is BEAUTIFUL!! Perfect room for two people, the view from the deck was wonderful! It was so easy to get in and out of and was very private with the side door access. Tomales Bay is definitely a MUST DO including the point reyes lighthouse and the tomales point trail hike. Beautiful country out there and this was the perfect accommodation to do it all from. Snacks and great coffee provided:) Thanks guys for an awesome weekend setting!

  • What a cozy and tucked away little get away spot. I would for sure recommend this little oasis; it was exactly what I expected and was looking for. My girlfriend and I had a really pleasant stay.

  • This was a lovely getaway from the busy city life. We arrived at night, and were able to get prompt assistance with directions, as we got a little lost. The place is clean and private. We woke up to the waves crashing on the Tomales Bay, it was so relaxing! I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking (email hidden) to stay near Point Reyes!
