This is one of those homes you see and wonder "Wow, who gets to live there?" Until recently it was just family and friends, and now it's your turn.
Built for families, the open floor plan upstairs is perfect for spending time together. Fantastic hiking, mountain biking, and strolling literally from your doorstep, as we share 100 yards of property line with the Point Reyes National Seashore along the Inverness Ridge Trail which is ideal for all levels, and connects with many other epic trails.

The space

Tree House is perched at the very top of the Inverness Ridge, with sunrise and sunset views. Secluded and comfortable, it's perfect for families and groups, and can comfortably sleep 8.

The ground floor features 4 bedrooms (King, Queen, Queen, 2 Twin) and 2 full bathrooms. All rooms have windows looking out into the trees. Upstairs is a large open floor plan with kitchen, dining, living room with high wood ceilings, with french doors leading out onto the deck with a gas BBQ and views for many miles.

The layout is truly perfect for families and small groups, whether hanging out together upstairs with the open floor plan, or wandering off for a bit of personal space. The home was re-built twenty years ago, after the Mount Vision fire, and was designed specifically to be enjoyed as a family retreat. You will enjoy the thoughtful and functional feel of this home, as well as the stunning location. Comfortable, clean, inviting, without being too ostentatious nor pretentious, this is a perfect home for relaxing with friends and family and enjoying the miles of trails literally at your doorstep.

Guest access

The property shares over 200 yards of property line with the National Park, with several trails running in various directions directly from the property. Mountain bikers will be in heaven, as will hikers and bird-watchers and those with strollers and toddlers. The trails around the property are well marked and maintained, and are ideal for strollers or those who prefer strolling to hiking. Numerous smaller trails branch off for those who wish to explore further, with some serious loops possible, like down to Drakes Estero and back, or over to Limantour Beach.
We have a nice kitchen stocked with all the condiments and spices you'll need, as well as every cooking and baking implements you can think of. Organic coffee beans, grinder, french press, coffeemaker, good sugar, cinnamon, tea, but the cream is up to you.

Interaction with guests

This property is professionally managed by Point Reyes Vacation Rentals, a small local family-run business. We work closely with the owners to provide our guests with a wonderful experience in a well maintained home. You will be provided with detailed arrival instructions for self check-in. One of us is always nearby and available all day, every day, should any issues arise or just if you have questions.

Other things to note

This home does have stairs up to the living room/kitchen area, so it is not appropriate for those with mobility issues.

If this property doesn't fit your needs, contact me. I have several other properties in the Point Reyes/Inverness area. Chances are I have just what you're looking for.

There's one small, but new, flatscreen t.v. with cable and dvd player, as well as an HDMI cable for streaming from your computer. We have excellent wifi, and the property does get cell phone reception (which can be iffy in the Point Reyes area.)

A beautiful home with spectacular views. Quiet and peaceful. Right next to hiking trails. Sit on the deck and stare at the stars at night. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!!

The Treehouse is a gorgeous, well appointed high end property. The house is on top of a ridge with views of Tomales Bay and the Pacific. We hiked on the Inverness Ridge Trail that borders the property. No other houses are on view. Perfect house for a quiet multi-couple or two family retreat. The drive up from inverness is rather steep and windy so be prepared.

This was a truly beautiful experience. The house is located at the very top of the hill with hiking trails and beautiful views. The location makes it such that the house gets sunshine throughout the days, which is great as it keeps the temperature comfortable. It was a beautiful experience for our kids as well with great time in the woods.

The house was in a perfect location for people who like to hike. The views from the house were outstanding. The house was well-equipped for cooking, the rooms comfortable, and it had all the amenities that one could hope for. It was exactly what we wanted for our family vacation.

The Tree House is an amazing place to spend a weekend cooking with friends or family, enjoying hikes (literally right outside the back door), and cooking and hanging out in the fabulous house with views that can't be beat! We stayed at the Tree House for 3 nights to celebrate my mom's 70th bday. There were 8 of us total (6 adults and 2 kids - ranging from age 5 to 78). The upstairs has a fabulous layout that's perfect for groups that like to cook and be together. It's an open plan upstairs so the folks cooking can still commune with those on the couch or on the deck, and still monitor the kids running around as well. The Tree House is literally at the end of a very long winding road that abuts Point Reyes National Park, meaning lots of privacy, expansive views (you can't see another house from anywhere in the house), wildlife, and thousands of stars at night. For us, the long winding road also meant making dinners at the Tree House, which is stocked with lots of great kitchen equipment and basic pantry staples. The only thing we ever argued about was which window framed the best view! I would highly recommend the Tree House for friend or family trip - we hope to come back soon. If you do go - I would suggest waking up early to watch the sun rise from the back of the house (or the upstairs kitchen window) over coffee and then end the day by watching the sunset from the deck or the living room with a glass of wine or cocktail!

The Tree House in Inverness, California was the perfect weekend get away for our family. The house was designed for family gatherings and provided breathtaking views. The attention to detail from our host in preparation for our trip was appreciated and very helpful. Traveling to the top of the mountain added to the mystic of this wonderful experience...really lovely and memorable experience.

Aaron User ProfileAaron is a superhost.

We are Point Reyes Vacation Rentals, helping property owners market their vacation homes and to provide the best possible experiences for our guests. My wife and I both love to surf, hike, beach-comb, explore farmers markets, and eat good fresh local food prepared well. We both have careers in hospitality, and we feel strongly about the importance of customer service and the feeling of satisfaction that comes from providing others with the best possible experience. We love being hosts, and providing a nice, clean, comfortable "base camp" from which you can explore this amazing area we are so lucky to live in.
