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.
•Full, private bath.
•iPhone/iPod stereo dock.
•Small TV with DVD but no cable.
•Refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, and a variety of coffee, teas, fruits, and nuts.
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.

Fantastic experience at this place. Here's why:
-Directions and rules were clear and straightforward, from how to get there to getting on the wireless to housekeeping and checkout.
-The place is cozy and adorable. Perfect spot to get away from it all but not go too far.
-The breakfast was perfect hiking fuel. Organic fresh fruit, Straus yogurt, and local granola were all healthy and delicious, and perfectly portioned to last our stay.
I can only hope that all my future Airbnb experiences go like this. Needless to say that given the chance, we'll be back.
My husband and I stayed at Meg and Alex' for the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The little town of Inverness is quiet, a stones throw from tasty places to eat and provided quick access to many wonderful hikes and beaches in the Pt. Reyes area. Our little one bedroom & bathroom was clean, quiet and a wonderful place to relax right on the water. The family staying in the home was friendly and very willing to assist with any questions we had. We would definitely consider another stay next time we are in the Pt. Reyes area.
Thank you Stephanie! On the Waterfront has been a B&B for many years and Cindy the host, wants nothing but to ensure your comfort and relaxation with a special waterfront view. I'm so glad you stayed with us and hope you are able to return soon!
Meg and Cindy
Cindy was a wonderful host and Meg made sure everything was setup in advance. We were welcomed with an assortment of fresh fruit, teas, and helpful advice about the area. The place is in a beautiful setting with plenty of privacy and an ideal sitting deck for watching the birds play over Tomales Bay. The room was just what we were looking for too. This place is in perfect proximity to explore the Point Reyes area by bike or car. Thank you for making this such a lovely weekend stay! Couldn't be happier with our experience.
We had great communication from Alex and Meg (who manage the rental) before the trip, and a kind, informative note from our hostess, Cindy, waiting for us at the room. Thoughtful touches in the room (fresh flowers, local organic yogurt for breakfast) made us feel welcome and at home. Oh, and the view...the picture brings it back. I spent two mornings watching the sunrise colors change on the water under that pier. Sublime!
Host Cindy was wonderful...location was perfect..very cozy waterfront cottage...just what we needed!
