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.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a wonderful time at Fox Ridge, which my siblings and I rented for a family weekend together in honor of our mother’s 70th birthday. The home was very comfortable for an extended family and well appointed for the cooking we did together. My children enjoyed the hammocks, swing, lifts and toys while their grandparents could get away to the master suite or a deck when they needed to. My brother’s five pound fur baby lazed in the sun and the whole family appreciated browsing the home’s excellent library. In short, it was a wonderful visit.

Reviewer Comments:

This home is in an amazing location for a Point Reyes "getaway", and you can do just about anything via a quick trip in the car. The home is well acquainted with all the essentials and is a perfect place to just kick back and relax with a glass of wine. The home could use a few updates and I would not consider it a "luxury" rental, but it really is quite charming and we would be happy to go back and visit again.

We had the most amazing weekend at Fox Ridge. Everything about the house and location was perfect. The house is big, bright, spacious and comfortable. We were a group of 6 adults, 2 small kids and 1 dog and it still felt nice and roomy. The spacious kitchen was fully stocked and great for cooking family meals. The outside deck was wonderful for enjoying a glass of wine at sunset and taking in the view. The kid’s play area had lots of fun toys to keep the kids busy, and the bedrooms were comfortable and cozy. The house was clean, with fresh towels in every room. And the fresh cut flowers in the kitchen were a lovely touch. The views from the house were amazing and it felt peaceful and quiet. The house is close to Limantour Beach and Pt. Reyes Station which was super convenient. Sally was wonderful to work with. She was reachable by phone and text and checked in to make sure we had everything we needed. I would recommend Fox Ridge to anyone who’s looking for a quiet weekend getaway in a beautiful place. We will definitely be back!

Great house. Family wanted to stay in the house rather than tour Pt Reyes. Set up to handle lots of people or just a few.

Reviewer Comments:

As a family of six adults and two children, we have gathered in Point Reyes for the past 7 years. this was our first stay at Fox Rodge. It was above and beyond our expectatations. The property was well maintained and clean. It was spacious,light-filled and cozy at the same time. the house was filled with flowers upon arrival and a welcoming letter from Sally, who could not have been more attentive to our needs.We loved going to Limantour Beach and Hearts Desire beach. However, we spent a fair amount of time simply relaxing in this beautiful, relaxing home. We all love cooking and spend a fair amount of time creating some beautiful dinners and sipping good wines. WE cannot wait to return next summer
