Why Sally chose Point Reyes Station

This home was designed for the owners by renowned architect Jim Campe, a leader in sustainable building practices who studied under and later taught and worked with Sim Van Der Ryn.

What makes this house unique

Fox Ridge is a peaceful and versatile space that has successfully hosted family gatherings, reunions of old friends, and retreats, strategy sessions, and workshops for organizations. Writers, artists, and visionaries of all kinds find plenty of space for individual work, but can also come together in larger meetings and breakout sessions. The Inverness Ridge setting is tranquil, but very close to the restaurants, shops, galleries, and markets of Point Reyes Station, Olema, and Inverness. Hikers can acess some of the Point Reyes National Seashore trails right from the front door. Other nearby state and county parks offer visitors lovely walking trails (a few wheelchair accessible) to explore the Tomales Bay Ecological Reserve, Papermill Creek, and redwood forests. Foodies and locavores will delight in the opportunity to tour artisanal cheese makers, picnic at the Drake's Bay Oyster Company, and enjoy the range-fed meats at Marin Sun Farms.

We absolutely loved this rental! The home was beautifully and thoughtfully constructed into the hillside. Surrounded by nature... it’s an amazing escape. And we loved how close it was to Point Reyes Station and the surrounding Marin area. We will absolutely be back!

We organized a spring break trip for our entire family at Fox Ridge. It is a wonderful house: quiet and well-equipped for a family get-away. The kitchen is large, has everything you need and even has labels on the cupboards and drawers, so finding anything is easy! There are built-in desks just where you need them, for reading or writing a shopping list. We appreciated all the great books and the beautiful view. Sally was very helpful and left us specific instructions. It couldn't have been better, we can't wait for next year!!

Exterior decks with multiple levels extend to peaceful forest. A short drive to beautiful Limantour Beach and wonderful dining in Pt. Reyes and Inverness. Sally the manager was easy to reach and very helpful.

Reviewer Comments:

There were 8 of us + a small dog occupying the house and cottage. It was the perfect house for a large group. The great room, which included a spacious, fully stocked open kitchen, made it possible for each of us to pursue our own activities and still be together. The house is full of the personal books, art, and photos belonging to the owners - an indication of a house well-loved and enjoyed over the years.
