Elegant retreat in great location

  • 5 of 5

We love Point Reyes and this is definitely our favorite place to stay - we spent a weekend recently at Gray's Cottage, part of several great options at this property, and can't say enough good about Jasmine Cottage - a bright sunlit spot, with high ceilings, lovely tall windows and skylights, two decks (one for morning and one for afternoon), fully equipped kitchen and dining room (and a very busy hummingbird feeder). I have rarely been able to write a review about a place that is elegant designed - this is! And it is the perfect location to walk just 1.5 blocks into the charming downtown to have a great meal, browse the bookstore or stock up on cheese at Cowgirl Creamery, as well as an easy drive to the beaches and hiking in this beautiful area. There are several other options too if the kids or grandkids are along.

A beautiful house in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a dark and stormy night and the sight of the house lit up and warm across the courtyard garden was so welcoming. The house is very comfortable with lots of cosy places to sit, a great kitchen and a beautiful garden. We enjoyed our visit to Point Reyes National Seashore a few miles away, and also pottering about in the village, with its excellent book shop and places to eat (recommend fish and chips @ station house cafe). A brief but lovely visit. highly recommend.

The Point Reyes Schoolhouse Compound is on the edge of Tomales Bay and the Point Reyes National Seashore, spectacular areas of scenic beauty and rich wildlife: elk, elephant seals, bobcat, mountain lion, deer, badgers and endless species of birds that migrate through and nest locally. Bald eagle, osprey, peregrine falcon, turkey vulture are here. Great Blue Heron and Snowy Egrets have established rookeries in the area.

Cultivated animals are also a huge draw: the oysters, clams and mussels grown in the pristine waters of Tomales Bay are highly sought after from Hog Island Oyster Company and the Tomlaes Bay Oyster Company . Point Reyes is famous for its rganic cheeses, meats and produce with tours often available on the farms. Our local farmers' market runs from May to October yearly.

Point Reyes is one of the most famous areas in the world for birding, has a population of elephant seals mating and pupping second to none, and is the home of the largest herd of California tule elk in the state.

Wildflowers abound in the area - West Marin - for three seasons of the year peaking at different times throughout: Poiint Reyes National Seashore,

Tomales Bay State Park, Mount Tamalpais State Park, Muir Woods National Monument, and Samuel Pl. Taylor State Park. Mushrooming is also very popular here.

People stay with me from all over the world in order to paint plen air capturing the spectacular

landscapes and wildlife here. Photographers find the area an endless joy, never tiring of the changing light, seasons and wildlife.
