Nourish yourself with the beauty, sea life, and ever-changing water and skies of pristine Tomales Bay. “Raspberry House” is built over the beautiful bay with water-view floor-to-ceiling windows in living room and sun-room. Kitchen windows look across the bay in two directions.
Dancing sunlight sparkles on the water, while a wood-burning stove in living room offers a cozy treat. View the bay from plush queen sofa bed in sun-room. A comfy queen bed in bedroom overlooks garden. A large upper deck has charcoal BBQ, soothing glider couch, table and chairs. Lower deck has a kayak ramp to the water and beach at low tide. Convenient laundry area has washer and dryer. Free wireless from all rooms and deck. Optional second unit off the lower deck has its own kitchen & features a Jacuzzi tub in an exquisite bathroom you'll always remember, sleeps two.
A lovely sculpted garden features redwood meditation bench overlooking a small Buddha Pond. A two-person hot tub looks out over the bay, viewing Point Reyes National Park beaches on the facing shore. Jaunt down to the rocky beach (shared access). Enjoy true peace and quiet — allow yourself to be wooed into 'being', it happens effortlessly. It’s hard to believe a place this natural and untouched still exists so close to a major metropolitan area. Raspberry House is perfect for a retreat, a romantic get away, or a charming roost from which to explore the rich offerings of nearby attractions.
It’s a short walk to the Hog Island Oyster Co., Tony's Seafood and Marshall Store & Boat Works (great fun when herring are in season). Each serves decadently delicious locally grown oysters (my favorites are the barbecued and Rockefeller... mmm!). Great restaurants and bars, some with music, are nearby in Point Reyes Station, Olema, and Inverness. Have a ball at the Dance Palace in Point Reyes Station. You’ll find delicious bakeries in Pt. Reyes Station, Tomales (15 min), and Freestone (25 min).
Minutes away across the bay is Point Reyes National Seashore –it has an award-winning visitor center, great hiking trails, nesting bald eagles and roaming herds of albino deer & Thule elk (try to catch a glimpse). Stroll on miles of white sand beaches. You may spot seals, sea lions, otters, dolphins and whales. Tide pools teem with sea life.
Dillon Beach and Bodega Bay are only 25 & 30 minutes north. Enjoy enzyme baths and massage at Osmosis (25 minutes), winery touring in Napa & Sonoma Valleys, rafting the Russian River (40 minutes), exploring the world-class coast and beaches, or touring and feasting in San Francisco & Berkeley, only one hour away.
