This house is a perfect romantic get away. Spacious and beautiful in the middle of nature it is located between Pt.

The master bedroom has a queen bed and a somewhat separate area with a pullout couch and desk. There is a dining room and a living room with french doors that open to a large deck and a balcony . There are two pullout couches in the living room. The dining room has a pullout couch.The kitchen has a breakfast area which seats up to 6. There are several barbecues on the deck. One is gas and the other is charcoal.
There is radiant heating throughout which is especially nice in the bathrooms and kitchen. On chill winter mornings the feel of a warm floor is nice.
Ruby Throated Hummingbirds can be seen in the backyard and from the kitchen window as they dart about the Chinese Lantern flowers.
Two osprey nests also can be seen from the kitchen and the master bedroom. It is a treat to hear their cries as they circle on the thermals gaining altitude to then glide off to catch a meal. When they return sometimes they are harassed by crows or vultures or both as these thieves try to rob the ospreys of their catch. We have seen battles between the osprey pairs and groups of vultures. Each year several chicks hatch in each nest. The ospreys take turns guarding them. As one guards the other one strikes at the vultures diving toward the nest.
I designed and engineered and built our house about 30 years ago. When I say I built it I mean I acted as the contractor hiring different workers for different phases of the construction. I did build all the stairs. I did the copper gutters and downspouts and I did most of the stonework, 120 yards of stone from Sears Point which I handpicked at the quarry.
Cleanliness:We clean all contact surfaces in the house including all counter tops, table tops, door knobs, cabinet and drawer knobs, railings, chairs, table tops, window sills and any spider webs we find inside and outside (they spin new webs over night). We wash all linens including towels, sheets, pillow cases, the bedspread and table cloths. We clean the bathrooms and all floors. We also put all decorative pillows through the dryer on high.

Guestbook comments from the owner
This place was great! A real unique feel in a wonderful little section of the woods, with gliding ospreys and roosters in the morning. The hosts were fantastic and nice - very easy going, but always there for you in case you had any questions. The house has a variety of things you can use, including the fun pool table and two grills in the back, and the piano in the main room has a great sound! There is plenty of room to sleep for everyone with extra bedding and so forth, the atmosphere is really easy-going, and you're not far from the town of Point Reyes that has a number of shops and places to eat. Was perfect for us. June 2014
