Point Reyes Station house description

Welcome to our home in Point Reyes, a five-acre rectangular piece of land on the Mesa above Pt. Reyes Station. The house is located in the sunniest part of town where summer fog from the Pacific/Inverness usually burns off by mid-morning (at least during the warmer months). A deck at the back of the house provides a great area for enjoying the sights, sounds and beauty of this special part of the world. It's also a great place to grill local foods on our easy-to-use gas grill. When you are winding down your day, enjoy the evening relaxing in the hot tub located in our side yard.

Our house is a cozy and casual place. It's great for families and kids and is nice to come home to after a long day out hiking, beaching, or exploring the beautiful Pt. Reyes area. The main area of the house has an open floor plan with kitchen, dining and living room. There is a wood-burning stove perfect for those chilly evenings. There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The first bedroom has a queen bed and ample closet space. The second bedroom has two twin beds. The third bedroom is a master suite with a queen bed, attached bath and ample closet space as well.

There is also a pull out couch in the living room which will sleep an additional 2 guests. Ideally the house sleeps six, but can accomodate 8. We also have a pack and play for infants and can provide a high chair if needed.

Nearby you will find the Point Reyes National Seashore with an amazing diversity of hikes, coastal ecosystems, and history. Choose to spend time in any one of several local towns each with their own personality and something great to offer.

Easily drive or walk to nearby Point Reyes Station (just under a mile) for breakfast treats at the Bovine Bakery, a trip to the local market (Palace Market), a yoga class (Yoga Toes), a visit to the Farmer's Market or a meal at Osteria Stellina, a local Italian restaurant recently named one of the SF Chronicle's Top 100 Bay Area Restaurants. There are a host of other delicious food and charming retail establishments. Other towns worth a visit include Inverness (Vladimir's), Nicascio (Rancho Nicascio), and Olema (Olema Inn).

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About the owner: The owners use and enjoy the house throughout the year and are hoping to share the joy of a Point Reyes getaway with friends and friends of friends so please pass the word.

                      Why the Owner Chose Point Reyes Station:
                      We have been going to Point Reyes on weekends since 1994 and think it is one of the most special and undiscovered (at least under-utilized) natural treasures in California, which places it right near the top of the most amazing places we have visited in the world (night time stars in the sky, beautiful forests, beach and coastal waters, berries, apples, birds, elk, coyotes, salmon (hopefully), cheese, hiking and biking on fire roads, a surprising amount of culture for a tiny little town, oysters, rancho nicascio, bovine bakery, western saloon, station house, cafe reyes, yoga, toby's, olema inn etc...).

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      our simple ranch style house is set on a rectangular parcel of land that is 5 acres in size and characterized by an open main field bounded on two sides by mesa road and two sides by neighbors separated by spruce and cypress trees, respectively. the perfect blend of openness with privacy, the Mesa area in Pt. Reyes is the sunny part of town so bring sun protection. nights are cool with incredible stars on clear nights. there are wild blackberry bushes on the property which fruit during the summer. the house is less than a mile walk from town - flat with one 2-3 minute uphill on the way home.
