Overview

Point Reyes Station House Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5+)

Dear Guests: As summer approaches our calendar fills up and sometimes leaves a couple of open days between guest reservations or even a single 'orphaned' night. Feel free to contact me for booking availability despite the posted 3-night minimum.

Lolo's Cottage is the ideal destination for your coastal getaway... just an hour’s scenic drive from the Golden Gate Bridge and the Wine Country. We're located directly on Tomales Bay with a backdrop of the rolling hills of West Marin.

We have everything you need for a comfortable stay. The kitchen is fully equipped and we provide Peets coffee, a wide selection of teas and a variety of breakfast fixings. All the cooking essentials are there for you— oils, vinegar, sugar, flour, condiments and 30+ herbs and spices. Just bring your ingredients and you're ready to cook.

To help in your trip planning, we provide an extensive insider's guide to area restaurants and activities. There is high-speed wireless internet connection and a CD player. There is no TV, however you may enjoy our large selection of DVDs on your own computer.

Each of the three bedrooms has its own design and color theme and the luxury of down comforters and pillows on the beds--voted 'super comfortable' by our guests. For families with babies, we offer a pack 'n play which can be easily located in any of the bedrooms.

You can swim and launch kayaks from our beach. There are plenty of deck chairs so just relax on the deck and dine at the dock side table while enjoying the sunsets. The views are unparalleled!

About Lori Kyle

Two things to know about us: the first is we love the outdoors. We ride horses on the trails with kindly mounts from a local stable and ride bikes throughout the Tomales Bay area. We walk and hike the trails and love the surprises that come with each season: a swath of lupine on a spring-green hillside; ospreys feeding their fledgling chicks in their pole-top nest, low-tide walks that reveal anemones, star fish, fan kelp and tiny crabs usually hidden by high water.

The second thing to know is that we love to eat. Fresh seafood and locally grown organic foods are available year 'round. Just-harvested oysters are a 5-minute walk from our front gate and the area's restaurants merit several stars with varied cuisines and the freshest seasonal ingredients...Heaven!

Lori Kyle purchased this house in 2004

Why Lori Kyle chose Point Reyes Station

We'd been visiting the Point Reyes area for decades-- family day trips to the beaches and hiking trails and getaway weekends just for ourselves. We always dreamed of our own home in the area, but it was rare to hear of properties for sale... so it remained just a dream.

When the opportunity for this magical bayside cottage came up, we jumped at the chance and have been been delighted with our decision ever since. It's been 10 years and the WOW! hasn't worn off.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just spent a blissful three days at your property. It was lovely down to the slightest detail, from the touches of turquoise everywhere, to the light streaming in all the windows, to the impressive array of flowers and plants, to the perfectly stocked kitchen, to the window seats, and the deck (from which we swam). A sea lion even swam very close one day, blowing air through his nose. Thank you for offering such a beautifully organized holiday residence

A Perfectly Enjoyable Stay

  • 5 of 5

Everything -- from the instructions on how to get there to the well-stocked kitchen -- was complete and well-done. For example, after I bought a dozen intact oysters at the nearby Hog Island facility, I found that the cottage provided not only an oyster knife, but a protective glove, a towel specific for that purpose and a full set of diagrams and instructions for shucking them; my efforts were successful (and uneventful), even though it was my first try at doing that. I think that indicates the overall care and thoughtfulness that seem to have gone into setting up the cottage. I am happy to recommend it without any reservations.

Absolutely charming

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Lolo's cottage with my family of five and it was perfect for us. It's obvious that a lot of thought has been put into the design and décor of the cottage - very comfortable and charming. Being right on the water, the views are spectacular and serene. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and are already looking forward to when we can return again!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My mom, and brother and I loved our stay at Lolo's Cottage. I have already recommended this cottage to other friends and family. It was relaxing, located perfectly next to other great shops and restaurants and allowed us to spend some great quality time together. Thanks for putting together such a welcoming home.

Beautiful, relaxing spot on the bay

  • 5 of 5

I just spent 4 nights here with my husband and 3 1/2 yr old. It was a quiet and relaxing place to stay, with lovely natural light. We loved the window seats and the views of the bay and the birds. The kitchen is very well supplied and the Wedgewood stove was a pleasure to cook on. The wi-fi worked well. We had no issues with child safety - the gate from the porch out to the dock is secure and my son couldn't get out to the non-fenced dock without someone with him. He loved going out to the porch to check where the water was as the tide came in and went out.

Love this Place!

  • 5 of 5

At first, being right on Hwy 1, I thought road may be noisy. Well, this part of Hwy 1 is quiet with minimal traffic. The lapping waves and incredible views soothe any tension. All the basics provided, stove yummy warm for cool mornings and love the window seats and pillows to read and nap. Would love to have stayed longer.

I hope to return again. Highly recommend this house. Elise T

Everything we needed was there. Lovely small gardern - Daphne odora the highlight at the door. Very cozy in the storm. Great place to watch the sunsets.

West Marin is known for its exceptional restaurants, many featuring Tomales Bay seafood, local artisan cheeses and organic ingredients. Did I mention the bakeries? There are three...all are scrumptious! Art galleries, boutique shopping and a fabulous spa are memorable destinations during your visit—all within a short drive.

Kayak adventures launch 1/4 mile from the cottage…explore the inlets and secluded western shores of the Pt. Reyes peninsula. Harbor seals often swim alongside your kayak in the winter and spring seasons! 1/4 mile in the other direction and you'll find Hog Island Oyster Company, offering BBQ facilities and freshly harvested Tomales Bay oysters. Beaches, hiking, biking and equestrian trails abound at Point Reyes National Seashore and nearby State Parks.
