One of the finest remaining virgin groves of Bishop pine in California is in the park's Jepson Memorial Grove. Wildlife in the area includes foxes, raccoons, badgers, weasels, chipmunks, squirrels, rabbits, deer, bobcats, skunks, wood rats, field mice, moles and other animals.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you for sharing this lovely home. We thought the view inside was as beautiful as the view outside! We stayed here two nights while on our honeymoon. We listened to Sinatra & Dean Martin while sipping champagne. I cooked for Eric the first time as his wife here at Hi House. We will be back!

Retired restauranteurs, we now enjoy our grandchildren, sailing, boating, travelling and enjoying all the wonders of our current home here in the heart of Point Reyes National Seashore.
This property was purchased as a vacation home by my grandparents. They added a second home, Hi House, in 1960. My siblings and I purchased the property from the family(s) in 1974. We rented occasionally to friends, and in 2004 my wife and I began to offer the homes as vacation rentals.
Peace, solitude, nature. Surrounded by Tomales Bay State Park and the Point Reyes National Seashore. Property is isolated, yet only minutes from the seashore, bay, hiking, biking, birding, whale watching and dining.
