          Pt Reyes National Seashore offers tons of hiking and beaches. Blue Waters Kayaking has kayaks for rent just a 5 minute walk away. The town of Inverness and Pt. Reyes Station offer multiple choices of restaurants, farmers markets, shopping, artist studios, bookstores, and the Dance Palace offers theater and music events. Petaluma is a 45 minute drive away to movies cinemas, antiquing and many other options. And of course, there is all of Marin County and San Francisco for even more!

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2005

          About the owner: For 40 years our family has spent New Year's Eve on North Beach. When allowed the opportunity to have a vacation home in Inverness we knew it was perfect! We love how close this is to the East Bay and to San Francisco. A complete retreat away from the hustle and bustle, but we can still get back to it if we need to. This house has been a great family retreat, for hiking, going to the beach or just being together for meals, reading books, watching movies and playing games. We're happy to share it with you.

          Why the Owner Chose Inverness:
          This wonderful retreat is multi-generationally owned and passed from friends to friends and not placed on the market. Whether it's raining out or sunny, or cold and foggy, waking up in Inverness you feel relaxed after a quiet night's sleep.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          We love walking up to the house, opening the front door and.....walking onto the deck! It always surprises people to open the front door and to be on the deck and seeing the view of beautiful Tomales Bay. We can walk to Chicken Ranch beach in 1 minute, 10 minutes to Shell Beach and it's a short drive to any number of ocean beaches or hiking trails. A 10 minute drive to Pt. Reyes station.
