Inverness house description

Frank's Place on Inverness Ridge is a charming Point Reyes rental home with panoramic bay views. With spacious living and sleeping areas, wifi and an outdoor hot tub, it's the perfect lodging for families on a Point Reyes adventure or couples seeking a secluded and romantic getaway.

The natural setting is spectacular, with lush surrounding forest giving way to open vistas and rough-and-tumble rhododendron gardens. Here on the ridge nights are dark and quiet, and mornings are beautiful whether drenched in clear light or sheathed in fog. Birds are abundant, including resident Pileated Woodpeckers and many others changing with the seasons. Ravens and hawks ride the winds out over the canyon. Scan the gardens or the meadow below and you may see deer, or even a fox or bobcat.

This classic Inverness style home was designed and built by local architect Jim Campe in 1986. The living room, bedrooms, decks and hot tub all face out over forested parkland to Tomales Bay and the hills beyond. In the main living area wood and tile floors and high, beamed ceilings create an expansive and elegant atmosphere, while clearstory windows capture the afternoon sun. Just down the hall, the carpeted master suite features a king-size bed and large private bathroom with two sinks, giant tub and walk-in shower.

Downstairs are two additional bedrooms with a shared second bathroom. A queen-size bed and TV in one of the bedrooms make it great for a second couple. The other is just right for kids, with two twin beds. A large inflatable mattress and porta-crib are also available if needed. Step out onto the downstairs porch to access the private hot tub.

An additional office room upstairs includes a sofa/daybed that can be made up for yet another sleeping option. WiFi from a cable Internet connection is available throughout, and there's a small computer in the office if you didn't bring your laptop. Cable TV is present upstairs and down, as well as a stereo system in the living room. CDs, games, puzzles, art and many books are here for your enjoyment.

If you're a veteran Point Reyes visitor you probably already have your own list of favorite hikes, beaches and activities--but we'll be happy to offer some suggestions! If you are new to the area you'll be amazed by the beauty and diversity of the Point Reyes National Seashore landscape, and charmed by the small but culturally rich towns of Inverness and Point Reyes Station. Fine dining at any of several great restaurants, delectable treats and coffee at the Bovine Bakery , and a wealth of local, organic and artisan food products are all just minutes away. Be sure to save some time for browsing the local shops and galleries.

Frank's Place is new to the Inverness and Point Reyes vacation rental market, but we are experienced rental owners with a property in Kona, Hawaii that we have been managing for many years. Our local innkeeper is just two doors down, and will ensure that everything is just right for your arrival.
