Overview

Point Reyes Station House Rental Photos and Description

A large four bedroom, two and one-half bath home

In a setting of stately oak, bay and pine trees, on Inverness Ridge overlooking the hills of West Marin, this quintessentially California home has until recently been exclusively a family sanctuary. It boasts a wonderful great room with chef's kitchen, a dining table that will seat 10, and a living area with a wood burning fireplace. There are multiple nooks for curling up with a book, playing cards and board games, birdwatching, and admiring sunrises and sunsets over Tomales Bay, Elephant Mountain and the hills beyond. Fox Ridge has spacious grounds, with multiple large decks, hammocks, and picnic tables. The master suite is at one end of the home, and three additional bedrooms share a second full bath. A powder room is located near the main entrance. This home is a perfect base for exploring the many beautiful hiking trails and beaches of the Point Reyes National Seashore, and is a short drive from its Bear Valley Visitor Center. Beyond the Point Reyes Penninsula, San Francisco and the wine country of Napa and Sonoma, and many other attractions are within an hour's reach. Fox Ridge was designed by renowned architect Jim Campe, and is one of the most well appointed homes of its size in West Marin.

The master suite has a queen-sized bed, a second bedroom has a double bed, and the two additional bedrooms each have two twin beds. There are also two sleeping lofts for adventerous children or agile adults.

For larger parties, Fox Ridge may be rented together with the adjacent Fox Haven, a smaller home that can accomodate 2-4 persons.

Why Sally chose Point Reyes Station

This home was designed for the owners by renowned architect Jim Campe, a leader in sustainable building practices who studied under and later taught and worked with Sim Van Der Ryn.

What makes this house unique

Fox Ridge is a peaceful and versatile space that has successfully hosted family gatherings, reunions of old friends, and retreats, strategy sessions, and workshops for organizations. Writers, artists, and visionaries of all kinds find plenty of space for individual work, but can also come together in larger meetings and breakout sessions. The Inverness Ridge setting is tranquil, but very close to the restaurants, shops, galleries, and markets of Point Reyes Station, Olema, and Inverness. Hikers can acess some of the Point Reyes National Seashore trails right from the front door. Other nearby state and county parks offer visitors lovely walking trails (a few wheelchair accessible) to explore the Tomales Bay Ecological Reserve, Papermill Creek, and redwood forests. Foodies and locavores will delight in the opportunity to tour artisanal cheese makers, picnic at the Drake's Bay Oyster Company, and enjoy the range-fed meats at Marin Sun Farms.

The house was lovely, quite large, and well equipped. The views from the decks were spectacular. Lots of fun nooks and crannies for children, and an amazing library of books covering topics from around the world. Only one regret - no hot tub!

Wonderful! We received incredible personalized service. When we reported that the grill was broken, it was replaced with a new grill within hours. Every detail was taken care of. Thanks, Sally!

Dads Getaway Weekend

  • 5 of 5
A few dads got together at this house for a weekend of fishing, hog island oysters, cowgirl creamery cheeses, Marin Sun Farms steaks, and fine scotch. What a perfect setting. Great big kitchen/dinning/living room space, plenty of beds, and decks with views everywhere. The place was perfect for us, and just a 5 minute drive into town for supplies and meals. The property manager was accommodating and easy to work with. Now, if only we can convince the wives to allow us to make Dad's getaway weekend into an annual event...

Reviewer Comments:
Our family spent five perfect days here. Perched on a hill with amazing views through the trees, the house is beautiful, spacious and wonderfully laid out for a large, multi-generational (ages 3-69) gathering. The multiple decks provide outdoor spaces for differing activities: some might choose to read on one level while others swing and cavort on another. The kitchen is well-organized and offers every kind of device, bowl, pot, pan, utensil a person could want. Even the knives were sharp! Thank you, Sally, for everything you did to make our stay run smoothly. We will return for sure.

Wonderful Accessible Weekend

  • 5 of 5
We stayed with our son who is in a wheelchair. The ramp to the house from the parking area worked well. The Big Room was ideal for a wheelchair, with lots of space to move around. One bedroom was accessible. The bathroom next to it was a little tight but manageable. The master bedroom and bath were both easily accessible. The porch off the Big Room was a wonderful place to have meals and to watch the birds.

Pefect!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved staying in this beautifully designed and decorated home. The furniture, books, and artwork appear to be from travels from all over the world. We gathered for our mother in law's 70th birthday and it was simply perfect for all three generations. The indoor space is clean and spacious. . . the outdoor space is quite incredible with very inviting decks and a swing set that the kids loved using. The house has incredibly expansive views and is ideally located, about 3 minutes from town. Sally, the property manager was also extremely helpful and a joy to work with. Thank you all around for letting us stay in this incredible home!
