Property description

The Kent House is a 1 bedroom classic older Inverness summer home. The bedroom has a very comfortable queen bed and two single beds. The living room has a futon sofa that will sleep two. The living room has a lovely brick fireplace and we supply plenty of firewood. The house also has gas heating throughout. We now have wi-fi but no television.
We have a small cabin with a King bed, the smaller cabin has it's own bath with tub and shower. The cabin can be rented with the house for an additional $100.00 per night. The cabin will not be rented to others during your stay should you not want it.

The kitchen is fully equipped with an electric stove toaster oven and microwave oven. Plenty of cookware and dishes. The house has three bathrooms the main bath off the kitchen has a lovely old bathtub the second bathroom has a shower and nearly new washer and dryer the third bath in the small cabin has a new bathroom with shower and bathtub.
The small cabin is a few steps across the deck from the main house. The outside deck on the house is large with plenty of seating and gets lots of sun. The house sits above a pleasant creek in a quiet wooded area with very little traffic. The parking area is across the footbridge with room for three cars.

1st Valley house is a 5 minute walk from downtown Inverness with 2 restaurants and a grocery store and coffee shop. Tomales Bay and Ocean Beaches are a 10 to 20 minute drive depending on your destination. Inverness is 10 minutes away from The Point Reyes National Seashore. The entire area is exceptionally beautiful with lots to do and see.

Our family home is a real Inverness experience. The house is not fancy but it is comfortable and very pleasant. Call for more information.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1965

About the owner: The property is owned by the Kent family and has been a family vacation home for more than 40 years. Five generations have spent summers in Inverness at the 1st Valley House. Many members of the family live in Berkeley, CA which is an easy one hour drive, making weekend trips convenient. We enjoy trips to the beach, hiking, picking blackberries, reading by the fireplace, and most of all being together. Many family members have or have had dogs over the years and they love romping on the beaches or sunning themselves on the large deck.

Why the Owner Chose Inverness:
Inverness has traditionally been a summer destination for University families in Berkeley. The Kent family has owned or rented summer homes in Inverness for over 100 years. We still have old diaries from family members coming to the area in the 1800's. Through hard work by many people, some in our family included, Inverness has never lost it's small town charm. The beaches remain pristine. We are literally surrounded by State Park and National Seashore. It's a beautiful and unique place.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The 1st Valley House has a tranquil and secluded feel. It is on a small creek and is surrounded by trees. At the same time, it is only a five minute walk to downtown Inverness where you have The Inverness Store, two restaurants and a coffee house. Live entertainment can often be enjoyed at these restaurants.Beaches on Tomales Bay are a five minute drive from the house and ocean beaches can be reached by car in fifteen minutes. Point Reyes Station is a 10 minute drive from the house with more shopping and great places to eat.
