We have lived in Marin County for 30 years and had been looking for a weekend property in Inverness for 7 years when we found this classic cabin known locally as 'Wee Housie'. I am an architectural photographer, and my wife an arts educator, so we very carefully maintained the original character of the cabin when we restored it. We have been sailing and hiking in and around Inverness and have come to love it. Inverness is on the shore of Tomales Bay, one of the most protected and pristine bays on the entire west coast of California. It reminds me, a transplanted Brit, of the best of the coastal landscape I grew up with, and my wife and children, Bay Area natives are deeply attached to it as well.

Mark Darley purchased this cottage in 2011

This was a rare opportunity to purchase a uniquely charming original cabin in Inverness with a sunny garden. When we discovered it, we were struck by the fact that in 7 years of searching we had not seen any other small house in Inverness that was as original as this one, and with such a lovely garden on the mesa above Tomales Bay, just a short walk to the waters edge and village center. It is a very peaceful, romantic and rustic retreat to unplug from modern life.

This cabin is uniquely 'old Inverness', an authentic but comfortable and charming California cabin, built inside and out of old growth redwood. Imagine settling into the sofa in front of an open fire in the evening in a room that is exactly as it was in 1917. Settle into a slower and simpler life, surrounded by nature.

Utterly lovely; no bad bedspreads or unnecessary plug-in devices and plenty of British charm. The bed was excellent as well. Do walk down to Saltwater Restaurant for lunch or dinner. You will not be disappointed.

Lovely Retreat

This historic cabin manages to be both comfortable and completely charming. While compact, it is well equipped for cooking, lounging, and exploring.The photos are accurate, showing its understated charm. We found the cabin to be very clean, with a fire laid for us and plenty of wood. the bed was very comfortable, the furnace and hot water more than adequate for winter use, and we were happy to have laundry facilities on site. Secluded from the neighbors, the cabin is quiet. We especially enjoyed the garden view and sitting by the fire in the evening. All the necessities are here, including wifi, but uncluttered by too many electronics or too many things. We had a blissfully peaceful few days. We hope to return and bring our dog next time. It's easy to get to the parks and a short drive to the stores in Point Reyes Station. It's a perfect spot to slow down and enjoy one's surroundings. We wished we had booked for a longer stay. The owner made the arrangements easy and our deposit was returned promptly. Thanks, Mark, for a delightful stay.

A Gem of a Cottage

The two of us, along with our mellow basset hound, enjoyed two wonderful nights at this utterly charming cottage in Inverness. The photos convey exactly what you get - a cozy, comfortable cottage surrounded by an English-inspired garden. Our host, Mark, was great, offering wonderful recommendations to eat nearby and sending advance instructions on the home which were very clear. There was even a perfectly built stack of logs and kindling in the fireplace, so we only needed to strike a match our first night. The bed is very comfortable, the home is beautifully kept and clean, and the location is perfect for nearby jaunts to Pt. Reyes. The only downside was that we had booked just two nights - we didn't want to leave! We definitely plan to be back - thank you, Mark, for your gracious hospitality.

A Few Days on the Bay

We spent a few beautiful days on Tomales Bay this summer and Wee Housie was the ideal place to stay. Warm, cozy and close to so much beauty, it was perfectly located and decorated! We spent the days exploring the nearby beaches and eating fresh oysters and would return to the cabin for a dip in the hot tub surrounded by the garden, a drink by the fireplace, and a good sleep in the canopy bed. We will soon return!
