Inverness house description

Come explore Point Reyes National Seashore and beautiful Tomales Bay from our water front vacation rental, High Tide Cottage, perched directly over the bay. Listen to the waves lap gently below you at high tide. Watch pelicans dive for fish and seals swim by right out in front of you. At High Tide Cottage you will find a welcoming blend of contemporary style and comfortable charm for your vacation getaway. With 3 bedrooms and 1.5 baths, High Tide Cottage will comfortably sleep 6 people. With the addition of the Boathouse Annex only available to the renter you can also add a 2 bedroom 1 bath attached apartment to help ensure the space and privacy you need for a fantastic stay!

The Boathouse Annex provides accommodations for an additional 2-4 guests (added $150 per night). $50 extra one time cleaning fee.

Main Cottage: The open-style living room/dining area/kitchen is a perfect gathering place for family and friends to enjoy time together, surrounded on three sides by Tomales Bay water views.

The kitchen features a refrigerator with separate ice-maker/freezer, a 6-burner Viking gas stove, microwave oven and dishwasher. It comes fully equipped with pots and pans, cooking utensils, dishes, silverware and basic herbs and spices. Four bar chairs pull up to the unique eucalyptus slab bar, allowing the chefs in your party to interact with the rest of the group . The living room area has a thermostat-controlled gas fireplace, satellite TV with DVD player and a deck off the southwest side. Board games and binoculars are available for your use while at High Tide Cottage. The ever-changing moving picture of sea life directly out your windows will enchant you.

Stairs just outside the front door lead down to the small beach, accessible at lower tides. It's a great place for kids and adults alike to explore the teeming sea life. A public boat launch is located at Miller Park, just 1 mile north on Hwy. 1, next door to Nick's Cove Cottages. Kayaks can be rented in the nearby town of Marshall. The quaint and charming town of Point Reyes Station is 12 miles south and the beaches of Point Reyes National Seashore are within an hour's drive, or a 15-minute kayak paddle. Make High Tide Cottage your home base for exploring all that west Marin County has to offer.

For larger parties, we have 2 other cottages within 5 minutes walking distance of this property that sleeps an additional 5 and 6 guests per property. These homes can be viewed at hightidecottages.com (visit our sister sites: High Tide Beach Cabin and High Tide Farms).
