For 40 years our family has spent New Year's Eve on North Beach. When we got the opportunity to buy a vacation home in Inverness we knew it was perfect! We love how close this is to the East Bay and to San Francisco. A complete retreat away from the hustle and bustle, but we can still get back to it if we need to. This house has been a great family retreat, for hiking, going to the beach or just being together for meals, reading books, watching movies and playing games. We're happy to share it with you.
Locke Jaeger purchased this house in 2005
Whether it's raining out or sunny, or cold and foggy, waking up in Inverness you feel relaxed after a quiet night's sleep.
We love walking up to the house, opening the front door and.....walking onto the deck! It always surprises people to open the front door and to be on the deck and seeing the view of beautiful Tomales Bay. We can walk to Chicken Ranch beach in 2 minutes, 10 mins drive to Shell Beach and it's a short drive to any number of ocean beaches or hiking trails. A 10 minute drive to Pt. Reyes station.
Locke was great to work with! Very responsive and offered great tips for things to do in the area. The house was lovely and the kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, blender, coffee maker, and even an espresso machine! The deck is amazingly huge, and there was plenty of room for everyone with a living room, dining room, 2 bedrooms and a whole extra cottage. I definitely recommend Locke and her home!
The house was spacious but with a cozy feel perfect for winter. I'd love to come back in warmer weather to enjoy the beautiful deck. The guest house is right outside the door and is a very large room, I wasn't expecting how nice it would be. I wish we would've been able to stay longer. We had everything we needed and were so close to Point Reyes Station where we spent a lot of time. The piano was also a delightful surprise!
We came for a family birthday weekend with a couple of friends. It was rainy, and the fireplace and views were a perfect backdrop for an intimate gathering, and easy access to all of Point Reyes made trips to the Lighthouse, hiking, and the nearby beach easy when the rain stopped. The house and kitchen are well-furnished for entertaining, but the space is casual enough that it feels comfortable. With a kids getaway space and large living/dining room, a quiet neighborhood, and great views, the place was a perfect spot for our weekend. We'll be back!
This home is wonderful, spacious and welcoming. We so enjoyed the sunrise, the stars, and the shimmering bay from the amazing deck. The house had everything we needed and then some, but was totally unfussy to match the vibe in Inverness. Ping pong was a blast and it was a such a luxury to walk to the beach multiple times a day!
Owners were responsive and gave great information on how to care for the house. We can't wait to return for more good times and relaxation.
We had a lovely time once again at Locke's Inverness house. It's ideal for our family, as the children enjoy separate quarters off the deck. Just a short walk downhill to Chicken Ranch beach, and lots of beach items on hand to take there. The house is spacious and generously equipped. Lots of help from the owners. Highly recommended for families.
We loved our time there -- such a fabulous deck, a well stocked house with a great layout for a group of friends and family. It's also incredibly quiet and peaceful, with a sweet bay beach down the hill. We look forward to coming back!
