Guestbook comments from the manager
Oh my, what a blast it was to spend the weekend in this sweet cottage. My friend and I rented the previous version of this cottage (1996?). We loved it here then. You have done amazing things here. It is so sentimental to be here and so amazing to enjoy all the fabulous upgrades. I'm so happy to have shared this weekend here with special friends. And my dog Coco finally go to see the beach house.

Lovely Place

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at The Whaler immensely - everything we needed was there & was so nice and clean. The back porch was a great place to relax and it is completely blocked from the wind - loved going to the beach and coming back to this wonderful home. We hope to return on another vacation!

I knew this property very well before the current owners bought it and transformed it into THE SWEETEST cottage ever. A friend of mine and I rented the old cottage for several years as a beach get-away from the other side of Mt. Tam - nice to watch the crowds leave and be able to stay on weekends. This spring I was planning a girls weekend to celebrate the upcoming marriage of an old friend, and found The Whaler available. I couldn't resist! It was such a treat to experience all the amazing upgrades while re-living fond memories with friends who had each spent time there before. The attention to providing every possible comfort is incredible! Not a single thing to want for. The current owners have made that cottage into what it always dreamed it could be! I'd like to thank them for all the love and affection they've poured into the upgrades and making it so comfortable and well appointed. Many wonderful memories are sure to be made there, by many others in the future. And my little dog loved it there too! She wishes we'd go back 8-)

WOW! We never wanted to leave...

  • 5 of 5
My sister and her two young girls spent the first night at the cottage. It was great to have the extra detached unit for them to stay. We arrived late the first night so we watched a little T.V. and got a great night sleep. (Very comfortable beds) We spent the day at the beach, walked into town to get lunch and my husband joined us on day two. The family left and my husband and I had a peaceful and romantic weekend. We spent the days at the beach and relaxing on the very large back deck and evenings were spent in the hot tub and visiting local restaurants. What a fabulous community! We did not want to leave and even tried to stay another night... they were booked. :( We will definitely return and would highly recommend it. This cottage is very comfortable, quiet and has everything you could possibly need and more! Love it... Love it... Love it...

Owner's Response: Dear Amy and Mark, we couldn't be happier that you and your extended family enjoyed your time. You discovered quickly how the place flows: hot tub, beach time, relax on the deck, dinners at the great places in town. You are always welcome back. Sincerely, Paul & Donna

What an intelligent and well-designed home! From the sound design to the lighting design to the kitchen everything is so well thought out. We came here to celebrate 30 years together and 5 years in NorCal. Since Manka’s Inn [note: lovely old school bed & breakfast in Inverness town nearby] burned down we were not sure where to go – now we do! Thank you so much for sharing the magic! Mark & Carolyn P.

What a delightful, cozy refuge! We spent a week during the large storms and loved every minute. The hot tub warmed us up after running from the huge waves on the beach. Every comfort -- especially the wood stove. Very pretty, modern and yet with the quintessential Stinson feeling. We'll be back.

Owner's Response: Dear Diane, we too love the winter storms, the crashing of the waves, the warm fire and especially hot tubs in torrential rain, with an outdoor shower afterward. Living life indeed. Please come visit again. Donna and Paul
