About listing

Sitting at 1000 feet, high in a secluded location on Inverness Ridge, built in 2009-10, this is a professionally designed and decorated contemporary 1240 sq. foot home with full kitchen, master bedroom, upstairs sleeping loft with two twin beds, hot tub, and many luxurious extras. The most extraordinary feature of this lovely and serene home is the breathtaking view of the California coastline from Inverness to Bodega Bay. Enjoy gorgeous sunsets and sunrises from ample upstairs and downstairs decks, living room, and master bedroom. The view fills everyone with a sense of possibility and deep calm. A great place to watch the weather roll in or listen to the lovely sounds of birdsong that waft up from the canyon below. Each window frames a portrait of Tomales Bay or ridge top forests. The property is very private, near the end of a private cul de sac, with plenty of parking. It is a short walk (.30 miles) to the Pt. Reyes National Seashore trail system. Come back from your hike or day trip to any one of many local pristine beaches and unwind on the comfortable and large window seat or extra comfy chaise-sofa. The well-appointed master bedroom has its own deck, access to hot tub, and outdoor shower. Extremely comfortable new king size bed with Calvin Klein designer bedding in restful shades of green and grey. Very serene and the ultimate place to relax and unwind. Kitchen is fully stocked and is furnished with top of the line appliances in case you have a gourmet cook in your group. Upstairs kids' sleeping loft. Many games & puzzles for fun family times. New Sony Bravia flat screen HDTV with blue-ray DVD system. Bose IPOD sound-dock. Wireless & unlimited telephone help you stay in touch with the outside world if you must. The house is well built, sturdy, and solid, yet has a magical feeling of floating in the treetops. It is perfect for a romantic getaway for a couple or a fun and adventure filled time away for a small family. Keywords: House

    The owners have thought of everything you'll need at this beautifully-designed vacation house. The photos tell the story: spectacular views, open-space living area, two wide decks, a hot tub. The kitchen included all the spices, herbs, oil, etc that we needed. The grandkids loved the loft and the lovely private master bedroom on the first floor is wonderful. When we had a few questions, the owners were helpful and even came by to work out the mysteries of a couple of appliances. The house is near hiking trails and the beaches and is wonderful for birding. Ten minutes from the Headquarters of Point Reyes. A trul wonderful place to which we hope to return. 03 September 2013 - 18:30:23

    My friend and I had an amazing stay at this beautiful place. The house is exceptional and has everything you need. All the rooms, furniture, beds are comfortable, everything is in excellent condition, and the views are phenomenal. The hot tub is truly wonderful. We hiked a nearby trail as well as going out to several places in Point Reyes National Seashore. Barb was very helpful in my inquiries with her. I recommend this property without reservations and I can't wait to return as soon as possible. 05 September 2013 - 05:26:45

    What we remember from our visit is the dance of fog, wind and sun over pine forests, sparkling bay water and rolling hills. The sky-high ridge-top perch, ample windows and expansive glass patio doors in this beautiful home let us experience the "circadian rhythm" of Tomales Bay and Point Reyes in an intimate and unforgettable way. The house was very clean, well-furnished with all amenities, and decorated with beautiful art pieces. We loved cooking in the kitchen-- a great example of luxury combined with efficiency--and enjoyed fresh oysters from the bay both evenings. All in all, a relaxing and memorable experience we can't wait to repeat. 22 September 2013 - 23:09:33

    Best vacation rental to date! This house is very comfortable and well layout. Even though its a drive up a steep hill, it is well centralized for our hiking and dining activities. Thank you Barbara!! 03 December 2013 - 06:57:48

    We loved our stay so much! The house is clean, well maintained, private and boasts nicely stocked bathrooms and pantry. Cable tv & DVD selections were nice after long, active days. Barbara was available for concerns/questions. The view from the deck is incredible and really draws you outside. Easy access to hiking, kayaking, restaurants and even Napa & San Francisco. The wildlife was abundant and the weather perfect for being outdoors. We hope to return to Marin and the Inverness House! 28 May 2014 - 00:51:43

    Hi Barbara, We are now home after our overnight flight. I want you to know what a beautiful and meaningful time we had at your incredible home in Inverness. It was the most wonderful family vacation. The views and beauty and peace of your home truly is restoring. You and your husband have succeeded in creating the ultimate retreat. Thank you so very much for sharing it with our family. My Best, Linda 10 July 2014 - 13:02:32

    As lovely as the pictures of this home are, they don't do it justice. In addition to its open, spacious layout, comfortable, very attractive furnishings and perfect location, the house's views -- from every room -- are nothing short of spectacular. After hiking on one of the many wonderful trails close to the house, my husband and I loved to relax on the home's lower deck, in the new, perfectly maintained hot tub, then make dinner (in the brand new, well stocked, fun to use kitchen), then take our food out to the dining table on the upper wrap-around deck and eat, as we watched the sun set over the tree tops. After four days in this fabulous house, we returned to Los Angeles feeling totally rested, refreshed and happy. In addition to praising this home, I must add a few words about its owners. A week before our trip, we had a last-minute change of plans and they could not have been more accomodating or fair-minded in their dealings with us. We were genuinely moved by their desire to make our stay as joyous and stress-free as possible. Whether you're looking for a romantic get-away or the perfect spot for a family vacation, I can not recommend this home highly enough. It's a truly magical place, and we're hoping to return many times in the future. 31 July 2015 - 21:33:13

    We loved this house on the ridge. It is quiet and secluded but a short drive away from restaurants and whatever one would need. The views were stupendous and the home was comfortable, spacious and well appointed. We had a direct view of the Big Dipper from the king bed. Incredible. Hiking and Pt Reyes history just out the door. Bellisima. Thank you so much. 28 September 2015 - 19:57:56

    What a gorgeous & well maintained hide-away you have. it is just beautiful & in one of the most beautiful & wonderful location with the most magnificent view. Pictures dont even come close to the actual setting, view& magic surrounding your home. We just had a blast from start to finish. Hiking, kayaking almost at the bottom of the hill, Relaxing on the deck & just enjoying Inverness & Pt Reyes offerings. Our friends from the East coast could absolutely not believe the location..total SHOCK & AWE! We will come back for sure. 01 October 2015 - 19:50:23

    Everything positive that all the five-star reviewers have said is true; we can't add much more: breathtaking views, great indoor and outdoor spaces, lovely architecture, tasteful decor, clean, very well-equipped kitchen, extremely comfortable bed and linens, very helpful host, and more. We plan to return in the Spring for a week of retreat, renewal, meditation. Best vacation rental I've experienced ever. 08 October 2015 - 01:32:00

    This beautiful house is one of the best vacation rentals we have stayed in. Spotlessly clean, super comfortable, insane views, lovely hikes right from the front door and a wonderfully stocked kitchen. Owners were fast and helpful in their communication. Literally checks every box in the perfect vacation list. We will be back! 23 October 2015 - 21:05:19

    A wonderful stay! The minute you walk in the door the view knocks you off your feet, all troubles melt away. Such a feeling of expansiveness .. the bay, ocean, pine forest, complete privacy ... are all sublime. Conveniently located to all areas of the park. Clean, perfectly appointed accommodations, down to each thoughtful detail. The hosts are .... kind, attentive, responsive ... and have great taste in music . Don't miss their iPod playlist. Thank you for a real good time! 21 June 2016 - 04:50:42

    My partner and I spent two nights in this magical treehouse. Wonderful view, in great condition. It is really well equipped. The host was really helpful -- when I inquired whether there was a coffee grinder, he offered to reimburse me for one if I needed it. BUT there was already a coffee grinder there! Along with everything else we needed for a great stay. The cleanup instructions are a bit much - since we paid a cleaning fee, the need to do a load of laundry felt excessive. But as we were there to research what life in Inverness post-retirement would be like, laundry made it real. 19 January 2017 - 18:42:29

    Perfect in every way, sitting to watch the landscape and sky change by the hour alone is worth the trip! I will be back as soon as possible! 30 October 2017 - 14:49:00

    This is an incredible property and we had an amazing stay here. It surpassed our expectations for the views, amenities, and cleanliness. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. 30 November 2017 - 15:54:00

    A very comfortable house, open and nicely furnished, with a bath, well-equipped kitchen, and living room on the entry level and a bedroom and bath downstairs and deck on each level, hot tub on lower level deck. We had complete privacy and quiet. The view was the highlight for us -- with the fog rolling in and out over miles of bay, hills, and trees. 26 June 2016 - 04:13:12

    Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. We loved the views (and especially from the hot tub)!! 08 January 2018 - 15:36:00

    We had such a great and relaxing time on Pinecrest in the lovely hills above Inverness. The house has such a warm and welcoming vibe, is very clean, and comes with all the amenities you could want for a vacation. We enjoyed lovely views of breathtaking Tomales Bay. In the afternoons we spent reading time in the sun on the deck (a deck upstairs off the living room AND one downstairs off the bedroom) and in the evenings, the cozy living room was just perfect for games, puzzles, or watching the Olympics. Terrific hiking just up the road, with many trail options. And the town of Point Reyes Station is just 10 minutes down the street by car. Also, love the outdoor shower! I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet getaway that is nestled in the middle of the beautiful natural world of west Marin County. 19 August 2016 - 15:31:00
