About the property

1 bedroom with large deck overlooking National Park.

This is the home for the couple that wants to feel like they are a million miles away in total privacy yet close to everything.

Please know that this home can be rented with the 6 bedroom/6 bath 'Blackthorne' (Home Away 338956. VRBO 323070) for a total of 7 bedroom 7 baths.

The cabin enjoys absolute privacy as it is located at the very end of a not-a-through street on 2 private acres that feel like 1000 acres as you are surrounded by National Park. The home is located in the easy-to-get-to flat area of Point Reyes (not way back up some long, winding road) yet elevated in the treetops, making it very sunny and bright with panoramic views of the National Park. Though you feel like you are a million miles away, you are conveniently only 1 mile from downtown Point Reyes with it’s fine dining and shops, 2 miles from the village of Inverness, 12 minutes from world class ocean beaches and one-hour from San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge and the Napa/Sonoma wine country.

The cabin is in as-new condition with a well-thought out design and furnishings by Robin Barnato of San Anselmo’s Studio Home Designs.

The home has a large, wrap around deck with panoramic, treetop views, a gas fireplace, flat screen TV that tilts toward the living room or bedroom, high speed wifi, phone with unlimited calling in the US and Canada, gas Bar BQ and an ipod player. Guests are also provided with tennis racquets and tennis balls and the key to a private tennis court 2 miles away.

If having a true getaway-from-it-all experience that is not far away is what you are looking for, please contact me as I’d be delighted to have you.

About Belinda Meadows

My name is Robert Galliani. I am a 3rd generation San Franciscan. My wife of 26 years and I have three children ages 18, 21 and 23. We happily and very fortunately live in a beautiful place called Marin County California where our lives are intertwined and revolve around our children.

Belinda Meadows purchased this house in 2013

Why Belinda Meadows chose Point Reyes Station

Absolute privacy is so hard to find. We're delighted to own this very charming and warm cabin located in such a spectacular setting yet 1-hour from San Francisco.

What makes this house unique

The home makes you feel like you are a million miles away, yet it's close in. Being elevated in the treetops makes the home sunny and warm. I have never liked dark places. This is the opposite as it is bright and sunny with amazing views.

A wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our retreat in this cabin. It was clean, had everything we needed including speakers and some games. It is very quiet and peaceful back in its spot on the hill. I would recommend it!

Redwood haven!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place to stay at Point Reyes! Secluded and set among the redwoods, this pristine little cottage is bright and comfy. Very quiet and private! The windows look out to the towering redwoods; at night these giants silhouetted against the starry night sky are so beautiful and peaceful you wish you didn't need sleep! A wonderful place to stay if you are in the area; this cottage delivers exactly what it advertises!

What a charming little cabin in the woods ! It was exactly as pictured and in a beautiful area of CA

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for quiet, charm and the feeling of being one with nature, this is the place for you. The cottage has everything you need for a back to nature experience with all the amenities of a luxury stay. There is plenty to do in the area and yet you're far enough away from everything to be able to feel like you can escape back to the "treehouse" for that's what it felt like. I highly recommend this place. The owners are quick to respond to requests and it shows that they really take the comfort of their guests seriously. I hope we get a chance to come back to this lovely getaway cottage again.

Perfect base to explore Point Reyes

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly lovely property. It's extremely quiet and feels remote--it's at the end of a road, on the edge of the National Seashore. It's also charmingly cozy--the bedroom & living room, surrounded by windows, up in the trees, are exquisite. The large deck is also a great place to relax or enjoy a meal. The cabin is sparely decorated, which feels just right, but it's got everything you might need. We cooked dinners 5 of our 6 nights, and felt the kitchen was fully outfitted. Remember to bring staples like oil & vinegar & coffee, though, since none is supplied. The gas fireplace took the chill out of some cold mornings and evenings very efficiently.

The location is also perfect for exploring the National Seashore. The Visitor Center is just a couple miles away, and you're just a few miles from trailheads of various kinds. The town of Point Reyes Station is a delight, too--Cowgirl Creamery has great cheeses, and the Palace Market is a surprisingly good place to shop, particularly for local seafood and meats.

I can't recommend the cabin highly enough. We loved it, and hope to return!
