Inverness House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Full Loft, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4 comfortably)

Sitting high in a secluded location on Inverness Ridge, built in 2009-10, this is a professionally designed and decorated contemporary 940 sq. foot home with full kitchen, master bedroom, upstairs sleeping loft with 2 trundle beds (Two twin beds each with a pull-out trundle with mattress), hot tub, and many luxurious extras. The most extraordinary feature of this lovely and serene home is the breathtaking view of the California coastline from Inverness to Bodega Bay.

Enjoy gorgeous sunsets and sunrises from ample upstairs and downstairs decks, living room, and master bedroom. The view fills everyone with a sense of possibility and deep calm. A great place to watch the weather roll in or listen to the lovely sounds of birdsong that waft up from the canyon below. Each window frames a portrait of Tomales Bay or ridge top forests. The property is very private, near the end of a private cul de sac, with plenty of parking. It is a short walk (.30 miles) to the Pt. Reyes National Seashore trail system. Come back from your hike or day trip to any one of many local pristine beaches and unwind on the comfortable and large window seat or extra comfy chaise-sofa.

The well-appointed master bedroom has its own deck, access to hot tub, and outdoor shower. Extremely comfortable new king size bed with Calvin Klein designer bedding in restful shades of green and grey. Very serene and the ultimate place to relax and unwind.

Kitchen is fully stocked and is furnished with top of the line appliances in case you have a gourmet cook in your group. Upstairs kids' sleeping loft. Many games & puzzles for fun family times. New Sony Bravia flat screen HDTV with blue-ray DVD system. Bose IPOD sound-dock. Wireless & unlimited telephone help you stay in touch with the outside world if you must. The house is well built, sturdy, and solid, yet has a magical feeling of floating in the treetops.

It is perfect for a romantic getaway for a couple or a fun and adventure filled time away for a small family.

About Dan Easterlin

Dan and Barb Easterlin. We lived on the property for several years until 1995, the year our first child was born. We love visiting Point Reyes -- the beaches, the hiking trails, the Douglas Firs and Cypress. We feel lucky to have the new cabin, perched on Inverness Ridge -- and are so happy to share it with others who might also enjoy the peaceful and restorative energy this place offers.

Dan Easterlin purchased this house in 1991

Why Dan Easterlin chose The Bay Area

The property is adjacent to Pt. Reyes National Seashore -- many beautiful beaches, hiking trails, and wild life. We have owned the property for nearly 20 years and just built this small weekend house this year.

What makes this house unique

hiking, quiet, extraordinary views, family time, watching blu-ray movies on the new HDTV, spending time in the hot tub relaxing.

Well-kept, well-stocked, and exquisitely located!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful two nights at this perfectly sited home high above Inverness and Tomales Bay. The view from the expansive deck was unforgettable -- whether it was watching the fog lift in the morning or meander in over the bay in the evening.

The house itself was very comfortable, with plenty of cozy blankets for a cool evening and an IPod music dock, complete with an IPod full of great music! The hot tub and outdoor shower were a special treat.

And it is so nice to be just minutes away from a multitude of trailheads in the Pt Reyes National Seashore!

On top of the world!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cottage. It feels like you're on top of the world. The views from the living room are spectacular. There's lots of space to spread out in, which is nice for such a small space. The kitchen is well-equipped. The bed is very comfortable. Our favorite spot was the window seat. The sun pours in all afternoon. We'll definitely return.

Another relaxing stay on Inverness Ridge

  • 5 of 5

We so love staying at this house. We've returned many times now and everything is always spotless, comfortable, and easy. Views of the bay are always breathtaking. Hikes into Point Reyes National Seashore are right outside the front door. Even in August which should be the busy tourist season, it was incredibly quiet and private. Dan and Barb always make sure things are perfect, and are easy to reach in case anything comes up. We'll definitely be back again. It's one of our favorite spots in the world to unwind and restore.

A wonderful, quiet place to enjoy a beautiful part of Northern California

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great and relaxing time on Pinecrest in the lovely hills above Inverness. The house has such a warm and welcoming vibe, is very clean, and comes with all the amenities you could want for a vacation. We enjoyed lovely views of breathtaking Tomales Bay. In the afternoons we spent reading time in the sun on the deck (a deck upstairs off the living room AND one downstairs off the bedroom) and in the evenings, the cozy living room was just perfect for games, puzzles, or watching the Olympics. Terrific hiking just up the road, with many trail options. And the town of Point Reyes Station is just 10 minutes down the street by car. Also, love the outdoor shower!

I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet getaway that is nestled in the middle of the beautiful natural world of west Marin County.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

True to the description, this wonderful home has amazing views that can be seen from every corner of each room! This place is secluded, quite, and one with nature. Hiking trails were nearby, we saw deer from the deck one morning. The home is very well equip with internet and a gourmet kitchen and all the elements needed for cooking a wonderful meal. The living room and bedroom were all super comfortable with a real luxury feeling. As described, the place was very clean and had plenty of supplies (towels, etc). This place is perfect and I look forward to returning again and again!
