Idyllic Inverness brings beachy calm

Idyllic Inverness can do no wrong for those who seek the perfect beach getaway. It sits along a bay on the Pacific Ocean—how can you go wrong? Answer: It’s not possible, especially given that it’s a residential community. You'll feel right at home when you book your Inverness vacation rental. Even downtown is charming, with a small-town feel brought to life by a quaint general store, a shop or two, and cute restaurants. The focus is all on the water, and for those who want to get away from it all it’s the perfect setup.

Don’t forget to pack that adventurous streak

Hopefully you packed your sense of adventure when you booked your Inverness vacation rental. Head to Point Reyes and get comfortable—you’re keeping your eyes peeling for California gray whales. There are also over 490 different types of birds that take flight (so don’t forget your camera, either!). Continuing with the great outdoors theme, it’s worth it to set up camp at least for a night—there’s something profoundly calming about gazing at the stars from your vantage point at Tomales Bay State Park.

Humbling and beautiful at once

Visiting Point Reyes National Seashore is a humbling experience. It’s home to the Point Reyes Lighthouse, an enormous structure that was built in 1870 and stands proudly on a rocky piece of land. If you’re interested in breaking from your Inverness vacation rental to dig deep into the town’s history, check the Jack Mason Museum of West Marin History. It was founded by Jack Mason, a native whose exhibits are housed in a beautiful home that channels historic charm. If you’re a pop culture fiend, head to the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center, an hour north, for a great lesson in cartooning.

50 in winter? You must be in Inverness

Is it warm in Inverness? Oh, yes. You are in Cali, after all. But it’s not hot, and that can be quite appealing to those who book their Inverness vacation rental with comfort in mind. That said, you can expect some dryness come summer. It’s no big deal, though, considering that the area’s average temperature is about 70 degrees. It tends to be warmer in September, when ocean currents slow and the cool breezes die down. Keep that in mind when booking your vacation—but don’t fear winter, which approximates around 50 degrees.

Secluded beach life reigns in Inverness

On the western shores of Tomales Bay in Marin County, Inverness is special simply for its location. It’s a dream for anyone who has booked an Inverness vacation rental, as sightseeing and beautiful attractions abound here. Adjacent to the San Andreas Fault, the simple town is home to several charming, sandy beaches. One of the most secluded is Chicken Ranch Beach—like a hidden treasure, it features a small creek and is surrounded by shading trees. If you prefer hiking, try the pebble beach at Tomales Bay State Park—you might even spot a seal or two!
