Overview

Point Reyes Station Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, Studio + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

This quiet and secluded sun-filled cabin, the former home of German actor Klaus Kinski, is set at the end of a dirt road high on a ridgetop between the San Geronimo Valley and Nicasio. Nestled in a grove of towering redwood and Douglas fir trees, bordering Samuel P. Taylor State Park, and a half-mile from the closest house, it offers breathtaking views of Mount Tamalpais and San Geronimo Ridge to the south and Bolinas Ridge to the west.

The cabin boasts a wood stove set in a large stone fireplace for relaxing evenings and romance. A queen bed is at the top of a spiral staircase in a loft overlooking the living area. Hiking and mountain biking trails leave right from the front door. Its location between Central Marin and the Point Reyes National Seashore makes it easy to take advantage of all that Marin County has to offer while affording guests unparalleled privacy.

Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for a quick getaway -and by getaway I mean get away from the hustle & bustle of life. This cabin worked wonderfully for that. It was perfect for sitting back on the lovely deck, listening to music and nature and enjoying the incredible views.

The cabin is clean, comfy and well appointed with all that you need. From wood for the fireplace, amenities for the grill, coffeemaker, stove and kitchen essentials to comfortable chairs on the deck and blankets to snuggle in on the cool evenings. Additionally, there's a lovely table on the deck where we enjoyed several meals. Like others, we brought our food in and parked the car and didn't start it again until we left. We went hiking out the door and relaxed when we returned.
Liz was helpful and provides spot on directions to the property, with plenty of warning about the rough road to get there. The road wasn't too bad if you're used to country roads. A four wheel drive is not necessary but ground clearance of a small suv was nice to have due to the bumps.
We would definitely recommend this place to friends and will consider ourselves lucky if we have the opportunity to stay here again.

Liz, thanks for sharing this beautiful retreat.

Wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful retreat in this magical and secluded cabin. The road is mostly fine but there is one section with a steep climb on the dirt road and I was happy to have the additional ground clearance of my Honda Element. We had an very very relaxing time here and hope to return. Also, our dog loved it too! Thank you! Chris

Beautiful, peaceful

  • 5 of 5
The cabin is remarkable. It is truly peaceful, incredibly private and quiet. The road from Laguinitas is long, steep and windy but with caution it's thoroughly manageable. After communicating with Liz about the road (her directions were impeccable) we decided to forgo putting our bikes on the roof rack and put them inside our minvan. It was a wise choice, as some low limbs would have presented a problem. But the van, which does not have remarkable clearance nor four-wheel drive, managed the road just fine.

Once there, we were able to road bike out and explore the area. We found a terrifc deli in Inverness -- right next to the Busy Bee Bakery. There are also mountain bike trails (and hiking) literally right out of the property. There is no need to get into your car once you get here.

The kitchen is well appointed (coffee grinder & maker, sharp knives, staple spices etc) and we cooked in for all of all meals.

There is a nice stereo and a DVD player (with some Kinski classics) but it's really the quiet that is most enjoyable about the cabin. You'll hear only birds for your stay...very relaxing. We regretted not bringing binoculars as the views are stunning.

This cabin was a great find and we'd like to return.

Wonderful Vacation Cabin!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed for two nights at this cabin, and I couldn't be happier with my choice. This cabin made me feel like I was in a completely different world up in the woods away from everything. I particularly liked seeing the fog roll in over the ridge in the morning, which you can see clearly from the bed in the loft.

The drive up was more challenging than your average rental house, and there were parts that were quite steep, but I had no problem driving my Camry up, so it is definitely manageable and worth the extra effort. As other reviewers suggested, we did bring up enough supplies to last the whole weekend, as we preferred to just stay up and hike around the property instead of try to travel elsewhere. However, after leaving the cabin on the last day we did make it up to Tomales Bay near Point Reyes, which was about a 30 or so minute drive from the cabin, and had some incredible local oysters, so that's definitely a worthwhile day trip.

As an added bonus, the backstory of Klaus Kinski, the previous owner of the cabin and famous German actor in many a Werner Herzog movie, added an additional dimension of interest to the cabin, and we had a lot of fun reading through his autobiography which they have on site. The autobiography even mentioned the cabin, referring to it as "that dollhouse in the woods," which seems an apt description.

Also as other reviewers mentioned, Liz was very helpful, and was on call the night we drove up in case we had any trouble finding the place (we didn't, but it was nice to know she would help us out, particularly since we weren't sure we would make it up before dark).

I hope that someday I will be able to come back here again!

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5
Elizabeth made everything really easy, even the directions up to the cabin!
We had a great, relaxing stay. The photos are accurate of the interior, but the views are amazing, and I don't know if a picture could capture them. On our way out of the area we ate at Two Birds which was delicious. I would return to the cabin and will recommend it to friends.

Spectacular view, serene getaway

  • 5 of 5
What a setting and view! At the end of the road (high clearance advised), this handsome cabin gave us an opportunity to comfortably unwind. Like previous reviewers, we came fully provisioned for our stay and, except for one great afternoon at Point Reyes, we stayed put, hiking in the vicinity of the cabin and reading on the fabulous deck. Layers are advisable; the weather varied from deep fog to hot.
