We had a great time and felt immediately at home
There were plenty of things to play with for the kids, and for the parents it was very nice to have diners and enjoy the views or read a book in big comfy chairs by the fireplace.
My family could not have had a better stay. The Fox Lodge is simply amazing in every way.
We had 10 people; 3 generations with 2 children (14 and 16 yrs) -we were there for
my son's wedding at the Inverness Yacht Club. The lodge housed everyone in their own beds
easily with the 2 boys on the spacious and comfortable sofas in the family room. I was a little worried about only 2 full baths (plus a half bath) but it was not a problem at all for us to
all get ready for the wedding. The decor, the kitchen amenities and the view were truly spectacular; the Fox Lodge really made our weekend even more amazing. This is a case where the pictures do not do it justice-it is even more fabulous than the pictures!!
Property is great! I hosted a 30th birthday gathering for some friends, this house is really cozy and in a really quiet area- lived seeing deer and wildlife around!
Wonderful, large Point Reyes area retreat
Our family so enjoyed a long weekend at this home. It is quite commodious and has all amenities needed. We loved the downstairs air hockey and ping pong tables! The view of the surrounding hills is broad and lovely, I just wanted to stay in the master bed all day and gaze. This house is exceptionally well located for Olema, Inverness and Point Reyes Station, as well as the natural beauty of Point Reyes hikes and beaches. It is the best of all worlds since you could stay on property and be very happy, but it also provides a terrific base for exploring.
The home and property were perfect
