Overview

Inverness Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

This is a unique opportunity to experience an Inverness cottage of your own. It is located on six acres stretching along the beginning of Tomales Bay. Enjoy gardens, flowers, orchard, marshes and year-round creek. There is an abundant variety of birds and wildlife.

Tomales Bay is at your back door, providing endless vistas of beauty and interest. Enjoy the ever-changing flow of water and quality of light. As the tide rises, take in the reflection of sky and rolling hills from the opposite shore, or the full moon rising over Black Mountain. The views are expansive.

As the tide recedes, watch for the variety of birds foraging for food along the shore, or footprints of deer as they move through the area. You may enjoy the view from the living room, outdoor deck, or sitting at the edge of the bay.

The cottage is approximately 3 miles from the Point Reyes National Seashore visitor Center, and just 2 miles from the town of Inverness.

Restful Retreat on Tomales Bay

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is beautifully appointed and very comfortable. Both inside and out are true works of art, and clearly show the eclectic and sophisticated nature of the owner. The views are exquisite. You can do as much or as little as you want. Our dogs had a wonderful time lying in the sun on the deck. This beautiful cottage is a real find!

Our time in Invernes - Good to Average stay

  • 4 of 5

10-13-2013

The cottage is overall recommended, and has numerous lovely qualities.

And, there are a few things we wished we had know/would be improved if we were to stay there again.

A few of the many pluses of the cottage

~ gorgeous view out the window of plains, hills, and waterway

~ great for bird watching, and host provides binoculars as well

~ natural (largely organic) kitchen with fantastic range/oven

~ wonderful tub with jets, and tons of hot water available

~ loads of host-provided information about the area

~ fast internet and working cell reception

~ fireplace you can use

Wish had know / were different

~ fridge is right next to bedroom, and when it comes on, it is easily heard whirring away, inches from your head

~ the bed has large people-divots on each side, making sleeping it somewhat uncomfortable and hilly

~ the kitchen has adequate furnishings, but not exceptional. Only one, wooden cutting board, with deep grooves and holes

~ the bedroom is full of light at night, with un-shaded high windows and skylight

~ the heater is in the bedroom, and while that room can be comfy, the other rooms would be much colder (or the bedroom very hot)

Owner's Response: In response to these comments: The remark that the bed seemed "hilly" was due to a mattress topper I had on the bed. Some guests liked it, but after this comment, I have removed it. I have many return guests who love my cottage! Also, the skylight in the bedroom is a favorite feature of many guests - it allows you to see the stars at night! There are also now several cutting boards in the kitchen. Heat can be more easily dispersed throughout the cottage by using the ceiling fan. The wood burning stove is also an excellent source of heat in the living room area. The cottage can be kept very cozy yet there are lots of windows and light - my idea of a perfect getaway! I very much appreciate the comments and do my best to respond and am always ready to make improvements - is my goal to provide a lovely vacation experience for guests.

A Little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We love this cottage. It is truly a little slice of heaven - an escape for us. We've stayed there twice and will definitely return. There is everything you need to feel at home. Comfy and cozy. Immaculate. A well-supplied kitchen if you want to cook. Peaceful surroundings. Occasional deer visitors. Close to everything - yet quiet, quaint, peaceful. We are grateful this cottage is available for share with people like us who dislike hotels and like staying at places where we feel "at home"! A perfect retreat.

A Magical Place

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this cottage was perfect in every way. It is cozy, quiet and comfortable and everything you might want is available. We loved having breakfast on the deck in the mornings. We enjoyed the secret garden, and in the early evening, watched the abundant bird life from the chairs at the end of the boardwalk....with a glass of wine, of course! The cottage is minutes away from Pt. Reyes National Seashore, Pt.Reyes Station, and the town of Inverness but is secluded and private. We loved it and will be back again..and again...

Afraid to say how amazing this place is because everyone will want to come!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I cannot say enough about how serene and relaxing our time at the cabin was. It's situated in a lovely little meadow right off the road, but oh so hidden from the hustle and bustle of the traffic and the outside world. The interior of the cabin is extremely comfortable and cozy-perfect for a couple like us who just like to sit and read and cook dinner together. We had plans to go out and travel so much more while we were in the Point Reyes area, a beautiful area busting with great food, and beautiful landscapes, but found ourselves just mesmerized by the tidal marshes natural displays and the solitude-we really only left to gather food and more books! We look forward to visiting our new found hideaway as often as we can possibly afford to, and had a wonderful time working with Louise to make sure our trip was perfect. Thank you so much, we have not stopped talking of this space since we got home!

Peaceful Comfy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a stay at this wonderful comfy cottage. We were pleased to find it looked just like the pictures on this site and was super clean. We loved sitting out on the bench by the water early each morning with coffee in hand and watching all the birds. During the day we did great walks at nearby Pt. Reyes National Seashore. Evenings were spent eating yummy food and sitting under the super starry sky. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to friends and family.

Map

The Point Reyes/Inverness area has much to offer visitors. Besides beautiful hiking trails, The Point Reyes National Seashore and the Tomales Bay State Park, there are some wonderful shops and restaurants in the area. The county of West Marin is full of people who appreciate growing and serving fresh vegetables and excellent, so the restaurants and food shops offer a wide range of interesting, organic, and local cuisine, cheese, and wines. Additionally we are blessed with a wonderful bookstore and many unique gift shops and galleries.
