Wonderful house, spacious views, great location.

  • 5 of 5

We 4 couples greatly enjoyed our 3 nights at The Drake, with a fine master bedroom, 2 more queen-size bedrooms and a 4th bedroom with fold-out double bed. The kitchen was spacious and well equipped and organized, and we enjoyed a big table that seated all 8 of us and a very light, spacious living room. It and most rooms and the deck all had views over the bottom of Tomales Bay and the Marin County hills to the east. The Drake is located across the road from a restaurant, bar & market-- very handy!-- and an easy drive to all the points of interest in the Point Reyes national Seashore. We highly recommend The Drake!

Ahhh

  • 4 of 5

What a perfect spot for our small group to stay. Close enough to Pt. Reyes sights and a magnificent view of Tomales Bay. The steps up to the house were overgrown with weeds and grass and a bit slippery and the steps in the house definately were a topic for discussion. You get quite a workout carrying up luggage and food! Not recommend for anyone with knee issues or limited mobility. The house was clean and very comfortable. We had a lovely time.

thank you for sharing this home!

Good. You need to be prepared for the stairs, they are a good workout! Need a handrail on stairs on front porch

We went to Pt. Reyes for the weekend to celebrate my husband's 75th birthday with all five of our kids, their partners, and in three cases, their kids. Four couples and two kids stayed at The Drake, and there was plenty of room for us all. The fourth "bedroom," a fold-out sofa bed in a little area just inside the front door has its own bath but lacks privacy as there is no separation from the entry hall. The kids slept on a futon in an alcove off the living room, also lacking a door. The other three bedrooms are on the top floor (of the three floors of the house, not including the two stories or so of outside steps up to the front door.) and are traditional with a shared bath for two of them and the beautiful master bedroom, with gorgeous, soothing views from picture windows, having its own lovely master bath with shower and "soaking tub." My husband and I took the master, of course, and I loved staying in it. The light was unforgettable.

All day Saturday at Kehoe Beach and dinner that night in the reserved room at The Station House. Everyone came back to The Drake after dinner for cake and speeches and there was plenty of room for all 21 of us around the table and outskirts. Plenty of chairs for all (some folding ones stored in a corner at the end of the table). Kids watched TV in the cubby off the living room or played the large selection of board games on the comfy sofas and chairs in the living room.

A deli with good sandwiches, burritos, homemade pot pies, pulled pork, etc., is right across the street, and several times we brought food back to the house and fixed it up in the lovely, well-appointed kitchen. The house is one up from the corner of the main drag, Sir Frances Drake, so could not be more convenient to everything. It's located halfway between Inverness and Pt. Reyes Station.

The stairs were indeed an issue, as others have commented, and as my husband is blind and has Parkinson's, we probably will never be able to stay there again, but it was perfect for our needs in this moment, and we are so grateful for the opportunity to stay there. Go if you can!

Great views and the steps keep us young/we navigated them with aplomb.

We had a great stay. It felt like a tree house. The deli/market across the street was super convenient. Perfect family reunion.
