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 Robert Galliani and 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.

Robert Galliani and Belinda Meadows purchased this house in 2013

Why Robert Galliani and Belinda Meadows chose The Bay Area

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.

Wonderful cottage in the redwoods

  • 5 of 5

Great location, gorgeous inside and out. Natural wood walls, warm fireplace, cozy couch and spacious deck. Delicious market near by and close to Pt Reyes Station, trails and beach. We'll definitely be coming back in the future!

Nice place tucked away

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time despite the storms. It was nice hearing the rain fall. While we were told the fireplace was acting up it worked perfectly for us. I would stay here again.

Amazing Setting

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is clean and nice but it is small. I would say two people max. The setting is unbelievable and we loved all the windows. Out heat didn't work for two of the three days but it wasn't a huge deal. The location and setting is what you are really paying for and it is worth it.

Fantastic Haven

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here several nights. Highly recommended.

This cabin is a gem, originally built maybe a century ago. There are

beautiful details from the original: generous metal-framed windows;

hinges on the front door worthy of a celtic chapel; metal window

latches that look handmade; the warm hardwood floor (redwood?);

turquoise tile at the base of the fireplace.

Whoever sited this cabin had a good eye. The morning sun comes

right in the windows.

Everything has been brought up to date.

There is a generous deck on two sides overlooking the forest, held up

by a modern foundation. Here's what we heard: water running in the

creek; one garbage truck; two airplanes. That's it. It was that

peaceful (and I'm an audio guy).

The kitchen has modern appliances. Heat is from the gas fireplace

insert. We didn't watch TV but it works as described. Electricity is

generous, no fuses below. Internet speed is perfectly adequate. The

tennis gear was as described. The washer + dryer are out back but

easily accessible. We had 1 bar Verizon service but the wireless was

very strong for messaging. The owners were prompt in responding to our


We will be back!

Another perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed here before and loved it! Our second trip was as good - if not better - and again, exceeded our expectations. The cabin is spotless and has everything you need in a small cozy space. We had several days of light rain that added to the peacefulness and the fireplace place kept the cabin at the perfect temperature. The market down the street has great food and a nice little area to sit in and have a quick bite and a drink. I highly recommend this property when you need to unplug, get away from the world and recharge. Thank you Robert for maintaining such an amazing property!

Cute cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage has an awesome deck. It is at the end of the road so no neighbors on one side. It was very clean upon arrival. The bed was average on comfort level. The shower is large, but the water pressure and flow of hot water is very sensitive. There is no central heat or air or ceiling fans. The house is warmed by a gas fireplace when needed. The location is excellent for venturing into the town of Point Reyes Station, hiking, and the beaches. The JVC TV was superb and the internet was fast enough for vacationing. There is no Verizon cell phone coverage here. Enjoyed the stay.
