Property description

Craftsman style cottage built in 1924, but with several updates, set on private, serene area perched above the Pacific on an acre of fenced property. Ideal for family gatherings, special occasions and events or simply a romantic get away.

Located in the heart of Golden Gate National Park and near Pt. Reyes Natl. Seashore; just an hour north of San Francisco. We are surrounded by lush farmlands where organic foods are plentiful.

You can have the option of cooking your own wonderful meals, enjoying having them catered to you, or dining at several award winning Restaurants in the area.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Bill and Creta have years of experience in the Hotel and Hospitality Industry. It is our goal to make your stay at Ocean Song Retreat be both memorable and relaxing. We seek to offer you all the amenities of a 5 star hotel in a Vacation Rental Setting.

Why the Owner Chose Bolinas:
Ocean Song Retreat is in a private and quiet area perched above the cliffs. We thought it would be a perfect place to offer to others to share in it's uniqueness. Ocean Song has a special history attached to it. It was once home to Editor and Author Don Allen, who during his tenancy was the founder of the Beat Poets and the center of the counter culture came from this property. An unpublished manuscript by Jack Kerouac was found in the house after Mr. Allen departed.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Ocean Song offers ample space on it's over 1 1/2 acres to stretch out and relax. From soaking in the Hot tub, to stretching out in the hammock on a warm summer day, you will melt into the serenity and be carried away by the sounds of the sea. You may also book a private on site massage with one of our certified Massage therapists. Our property is very Dog friendly with fenced in areas around the house and also the Event space. The event space houses a complete Dog Agility Field with private lessons available to guests and use of the field for dogs already trained in the sport.
