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.

Lovely, quiet and inspiring

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was a perfect addition to our writers retreat at the Blackthorne with 7 writers from around the country. We really couldn't ask for a better creative sanctuary.

Beautiful cabin with some minor quirks

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful cabin that seems so far but so close to civilization as well. The only minor quirks we had was the bed needs updating. The bed is god awful squeaky from any tiny movement but if that was replaced the location would be perfect. It was a small quaint and well furnished cabin with all you would need for a weekend getaway. If you’re cooking tho I’d suggest bringing all ingredients with you as kitchen is only stocked with cookware :)

Enjoyed it very much, so peaceful and close to the beaches

  • 5 of 5

You could put a sign in the kitchen about the hidden lightswitch, that took us a while. And all the glass on top of the mantel is kind of unnecessary.

Not much to criticize though, the deck was great and everything worked

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!
