This is the house our parents built and lived in happily for twenty five years after our dad retired.

The space

Just down the road from the town of Inverness on Inverness Ridge, this house features an open architecture with vaulted ceilings in the combined living room and dining room. Bench seating along the bay windows provides a view of Tomales Bay through the trees, while the back deck is a perfect spot for soaking up afternoon sunshine.

A neighborhood beach is easily accessed just down the hill and many other ocean and bay beaches are just a short drive offering excellent hiking, swimming, bird watching, kayaking, paddle boarding, and many other activities. The Point Reyes Lighthouse and the interpretive center at Bear Valley including a replicate of the Miwok village are great things for kids.

This location is just a couple minutes from Inverness where supplies can be purchased at the Inverness Store and local oysters can be sampled at one of the restaurants. Point Reyes is a fifteen minute drive with additional shopping and dining options.

This home features a master bedroom with a queen bed and a double bed and a loft with an extra long double bed. The galley kitchen is fully stocked with equipment. There is internet service and a TV with a DVD and VCR but no cable. Please note that due to our location the internet connection can be tempermental and that cell phone coverage in the area is limited.

This cabin was perfect for three couples looking for a place to stay for two nights on a budget. Ten minute drive from Point Reyes. A beautiful deck for meals. We tried to use the washer, which leaked a large amount of water onto the carpet (I suppose this warning was given to us in the house manual which warned that appliances are old and should be watched during use). Barbara said to sop it up with towels which we did. Overall, would stay here again.

Barbara's cabin serves as an absolutely wonderful weekend (or longer) getaway. The wood-burning stove was a perfect touch for relaxing nights in and the deck was a wonderful place to have coffee in the morning. The kitchen is pretty much fully stocked and the outdoor (charcoal) bbq was perfect for memorial day cooking. Comfy beds, beautiful scenery, and within walking distance to the bay.

Comfortable house but a bit dated. Set among the trees above tomales bay with birds all around. Good beds.

We enjoyed our stay in this comfortable house with beautiful scenic views. The photos don't do it justice. The kitchen was well-equipped and we found it easy to cook our meals and enjoy them in the house. The location was within easy access to other parts of Tomales Bay and Point Reyes and a perfect location for enjoying nearby hikes, kayaking, eating oysters, and exploring the little towns and great food in the area. I would recommend this place to anyone traveling to Inverness or nearby areas.

Trying to retire, love California. Grew up in Northern California. I spent many summers in West Marin, enjoying the sun, sand, and fog. I even learned to swim and sail in the cold waters of Tomales. This house has a special place in my heart. Treat it like your own.
