Spacious and secluded, nestled in the woods. Hardwood floors, woodland views throughout the house, pool table, piano, large back deck w/bbqs and outdoor seating, gardens, fruit trees and chickens. Hiking, ocean & the bay within minutes.
This three story house is perfect for a romantic get away or as a gathering space for family or group retreats. Spacious and beautiful in the middle of nature, it is located one mile from Pt. Reyes Station and Inverness in West Marin. Within easy reach of everything the San Francisco Bay Area has to offer, you can walk the nearby beaches and trails, enjoy the many great restaurants, or maybe find where Sir Francis Drake hid some of his treasure.
There is room enough to comfortably sleep 16 but we have accommodated as many as 20 people. The main kitchen seats 6 in the breakfast nook and the dining table in the main room seats 10. We keep extra chairs handy as well. The house is surrounded by national park and has a large deck with ample seating and two grills, two balconies, a pool table, piano, hardwood floors in every room, woodland views from every window, gardens, a variety of fruit trees, and chickens out back. Radiant heating warms the bathrooms and kitchen, very cozy on chill winter mornings.
There are 2 bedrooms, 2 suites, and the TV room may also be used as a private bedroom with closing doors and a fold-out couch. The entertainment room also has a fold-out couch and the two suites each have a fold-out couch and space enough for a comfortable air mattress, which we have plenty of. That totals 4 beds, 4 fold-out couches and space for 2 (or more) comfortable air beds, all of which are Queen.
We clean all contact surfaces in the house including all counter tops, table tops, door knobs, cabinet and drawer knobs, railings, chairs, table tops, window sills. We wash all linens including towels, sheets, pillow cases, the bedspreads and table cloths. We clean the bathrooms and all floors. We also put all decorative pillows through the dryer on high.
I designed and engineered this home, incorporating antique chandeliers, molding, and antique glass and doors from estate auctions. I did most of the stonework around the house, handpicking about 120 yards of stone from the quarry at Sears Point. We hope you enjoy the home we have built- we’re here to ensure your stay is everything you hoped it would be and more.
If you are considering an event such as a family get together, a celebration, or a seminar we can accommodate you. Long term stays may also be accommodated. Please contact us for pricing.

The house is at the end of a secluded private driveway. Our neighbors value the peace and quiet in this beautiful woodland. The silence here is wonderful. Please after 10pm no loud music or loud conversations especially if you are a large group. Closing doors and windows does make a difference in controlling noise.
If your group is looking forward to unrestrained partying with loud music please find a more fitting venue.
We ask that you sign a rental agreement upon checking in.
Please no smoking, no candles except birthday cake candles, and no fires inside or outside. The house has sprinklers which saves lives but can do as much monetary damage as a fire.

We are sorry but we can not allow any pets or assistance animals-my wife is allergic.
Please do not drag furniture around on the hardwood floors. If you need to move anything let us know and we will be glad to do it for you.

If you need any assistance with anything do not hesitate to ask. We do not mind in the least. We're here to ensure your stay is everything you hoped it would be and more.
