A video tour is now available. Please click on the video link above and you'll see why our guests love coming to stay at Yvetot!
Enjoy a cup of tea snuggled up in one of the bench seats. Cook a gourmet meal in the fully-appointed kitchen. Feel the warmth from the wood-burning stove and the radiant-heated floors. Appreciate the views of Mount Vision from the private deck. Listen to the sound of the birds as you soak in the hot tub. Relax in the peace and tranquility.
This and much more is Yvetot Guest House. Designed and built from largely recycled materials in 2003 by our architect son to accommodate visits from our ever-growing family, it is truly a magical place which we love to share. It is ideal for couples, family vacations and anyone seeking a quiet retreat, but is not suitable for parties or group gatherings.
Yvetot is a mile up from the town of Inverness and close to ocean-side and bay-side beaches. Hiking trails abound from just up the street and you are minutes away from the spectacular beauty of Point Reyes National Seashore.
The house, which is 800 square feet, comfortably sleeps six people: two in the master bedroom and four in the 'children's room' - two twin beds and two twin futons with sleeping bags in the loft.
Yvetot has Wifi, plenty of DVD's, CD's to play on the Bose music system (into which you can plug your phone/tablet), books, games and toys to entertain everyone.
Come and have a wonderful time!

About Mike and Catherine
Retired GM executive, one feral cat, love this spot on the ridge and the guest house built for family and friends. Garden is special interest.
Why Mike and Catherine chose Inverness
Chose the house and location for retirement...great decision! This spot is very special as sun, views, and 3 acres on the ridge top....very liveable!
What makes this Cottage unique
Privacy, uniquely restful setting, and a very excellent job of design and furnishing .... our son is a talented builder and the care, attention to detail is obvious.

Secluded and lovely setting for an adventure and getting away from it all. This time we met our hosts, who were gracious and very welcoming. Catherine shared greens from her garden that were the perfect accompaniment to our locally procured lamb chops and fresh baked bread from Bovine Bakery. Dog-friendly hiking trails nearby-perfect for everyone.
Mary, It was fun for us to have you, Jeff, Henry and the dogs up in Yvetot. So pleased to read of your enjoyment. Until next visit, Mike
A Beautiful Sanctuary
We just spent a weekend at Yvetot, and couldn't have been happier. This lovely home is in a tranquil location and beautifully designed, down to every detail. Adding to the tranquility is the fact that it is not cluttered with knick knacks, everything seems to have a perfect spot. It is immaculate and obviously taken care of with TLC. Speaking of which, it is obvious that Yvetot is loved, it just has that vibe...sort of magical. We also enjoyed our visits with the host, and hope to get to know him better during future stays - we'll definitely be back!
Gem of a place on Inverness Ridge
We've stayed at Yvetot several times before and it's always our preferred setting when visiting Pt. Reyes National Seashore --- expertly designed cottage and lush gardens, peaceful environment, unparalleled forest views from the windows, deck, patio, and hot tub, delightful hosts who anticipate and provide all that you need for a perfect getaway in lovely surroundings. It's fabulously soothing and revitalizing to immerse ourselves in this special home away from home. Mil gracias, amigos! Hasta la proxima vez...
Ah, that's so nice to read! Thanks Claudia and Steve. As you know, we enjoy your appreciation of this area, your appetites for all the great area walks, and the both of you. It makes us feel good to know the people up in Yvetot are having a ball! Await your return. Mike and Catherine
Beautiful, tranquil spot with ideal hosts!
This was our second visit to Yvetot and we were not disappointed -- in fact it was even more beautiful than we remembered. It felt like we had come home. Yvetot is a magical place: the perfect spot to relax, recharge and soak up nature and the beautiful surroundings of Point Reyes. So much thought went into the design of the home. It is elegant yet comfortable with every modcon you might need -- and incredibly comfortable beds. Mike and Catherine are the perfect hosts, thoughtful, generous and very knowledgeable about the area. Catherine was kind enough to share her home-grown lettuce with us and Mike offered fantastic tips about hiking in the area -- and left us fine coffee and home-made granola for breakfast. This is simply one of the best vacation rental homes around and our only regret was that we could stay just four nights -- it went by too quickly. We'll book in advance next time -- hopefully for the Dipsea race, which looks like an incredible route (for Oliver!). Thanks so much for making our stay special. Sue, David and Oliver
Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are fortunate to live in such a beautiful and tranquil spot and love being able to share it. Special to have relationships with people like your family that we'd otherwise miss out on. We look forward to seeing you all again and can't wait to cheer Oliver across the Dipsea finish line! Mike and Catherine
Lovely house in gorgeous setting
My family had an amazing time at Yvetot. The house is super cozy and well equipped. The views are stunning.
Thanks Mike and Katherine for the warm welcome. We’ll be back!
Thanks for the kind words, and we are pleased that your family had a fine Yvetot time....it is a special spot, and we love the enjoyment had by families like yours. See you soon, we hope. Mike and Catherine
Yvetot is a beautiful--and beautifully maintained--property nestled in a bowl of green trees. The bird song is sweet and clear, and the air is crisp and clean. Time spent in the hot tub was divine.
The living room is airy and light, and the wood stove insured our coziness. So many little nooks to rest and read in! The kitchen is very well equipped with all of the cooking implements we needed. The bed was thoroughly comfortable, and we got some of the best rests we've had in recent memory.
Thoroughly unplugged, wholly delightful! Highly recommend!!
Such a warm review! Thanks from both of us. Your happiness up in Yvetot was palpable! We get the good vibes, and they make our life better, too. Await your return. Mike and Catherine
