ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL PLACE FOR A FAMILY TIME TOGETHER

  • 5 of 5
We live about an hour from Cliff House. We (a family of 5) decided that we would like to go someplace which had nature, convenience, comfort, and would enable us to go hiking, biking, kayaking, and making meals and playing indoor games TOGETHER, and at the same time be big enough so that if anyone needed private space, that would be available as well. Cliff House far exceeded our expectations, and we felt privileged to be "invited" into the special home of our hosts (who we have never met). Everything imaginable was available in the home. Everything was perfect. Whoever designed the layout of the home had the same "spiritual architect" that we would have engaged had we designed our own home in this beautiful environment. Our family ranges in age from 31 to 68 and each of us repeated over and over again how wonderful the time together at Cliff House was for us individually and collectively. Thank you for making your lovely home available to us. Please feel free to use us as a reference for others who may be considering a stay at the Cliff House. Although our family now scatters with the winds for next 10 months, we hope that our next reunion will be at Cliff House. Thank you.

EVERYTHING IT SAYS IT IS, IT IS.

  • 5 of 5
We were in Point Reyes for the best week of weather in the country – Mid-January and temps in the mid-70s, skies of clearest blue. We saw whales, we took long hikes, we walked barefoot on sandy beaches. We ate meals as good as any we've eaten in France or Italy in the summertime.

The house was a perfect launch pad and place to hang out. The sun rises in the mornings over the mountain, and lights the whole upstairs. In the evenings, after a day outside, the fire in the large fireplace lends warmth, both physical and atmospheric. The house itself is redolent of 1970s architecture and fixtures, but everything works well, is clean and attractive. We had 6 people at a time, which was about the right number. We would return happily.

HOMEY, BEAUTIFUL, MAGICAL PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay here. The owner was responsive and professional. The place was very clean while also feeling well loved and welcoming. We loved making big meals in the well stocked kitchen, hanging out by the fireplace, and having coffee in the deck overlooking Tomales Bay and Black Mountain. Hope to come back here someday!

GREAT SPOT FOR FAMILY GATHERING

  • 5 of 5
Our family of multiple generations stayed at The Cliff House for Christmas and found it very comfortable, beautifully sited with a lovely view of Tomales Bay, close proximity to Point Reyes for hikes and elephant seal and whale watching. The house itself had all we needed to make our Christmas dinner. Because it is separated onto three levels, it allowed for privacy when desired or for toddler nap-time, but with the fireplace and wrap around bench and table, a prefect spot for Scrabble or cards. Highly recommend!

BEAUTIFUL AND COZY.

  • 5 of 5
This is a well-appointed and rustic house with so many things right about it!

ie. Gorgeous views. Ample outdoor sitting space. Well-stocked kitchen. Big dining table. Large, central sitting area with fireplace. Ping-pong room...

It's an ideal location for exploring Point Reyes. The orientation of the house makes it feel remote, yet it's within a short drive of the major hikes and amenities of the area.

Many thanks for a great stay!

THE PERFECT HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
I celebrated my 60th birthday with a few friends for the weekend at the Cliff House. We were stunned to find the perfect setting for my celebration! The house was immaculate yet very homey and comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. It was spacious inside as well as on the outside deck. The views were spectacular.I was especially appreciative of how accomodating the owner was when it came to my special needs as a chemically sensitive person. We were only a few minutes from the beach where I had my big celebration and then, afterwards, we were able to continue a more intimate gathering at the house where there was plenty of room to play music and visit. The rates were very reasonable and I wouldn't hesitate to return or to recommend to other friends. Thanks for the perfect weekend!!!

Our house is located 1.3 miles from Inverness and the property is minutes away from Point Reyes National Seashore. Within the park there are many beautiful hiking trails, great wildlife sitings including whale watching, fabulous beaches, and a bay for swimming, kayaking, and sailing. The visitors center is informative and there is a Miwok Indian village just outside the center. Our children loved to play among the dwellings there when they were youngsters. The wild flowers in the spring are wonderful!!! If you don't want to drive you can simply walk to a couple of local beachs on Tomales Bay: Chicken Ranch and Shell Beach. Both are great for a picnic, a stroll, a swim or kayaking. After the exercise you will be hungry and there are two local cheese makers in the area; The Cowgirl Creamery in Pt. Reyes Station and Nicasio Cheese Factory (organic). There is a great farmers market on Saturday mornings in Point Reyes Station in summer and the Bovine Bakery there has the best bear claws ever!!! For pizza there is no better place than Cafe Reyes in Pt. Reyes and for brunch the classic Pine Cone diner harkens back to a time past full of cheeseburgers and thick milkshakes.
