Inverness house description

We’re often told that our garden is one of the sunniest spots in Inverness. With an expansive lawn and fruit trees, it makes a great place to gather for al fresco dining after a day at the beach or hiking, or for morning coffee, afternoon tea/cocktails/oysters. The living quarters are ideal for a romantic getaway for 2, but also fun for a family of 4-6 people. The suite has a main room with an open kitchen, dining, living room plan. The kitchen is efficient with modern day amenities, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, etc. The old English Pub dining table accommodates 6 people. The living room has a big fireplace and loads of cozy spots to get comfortable, curl up with a book. The main bedroom has a double bed and built-in work desk. The second bedroom has 2 sets of bunks to sleep 4 people. There is a DVD machine in this room as well. The house is full of good books and board games and WIFI (occasionally this blanks due to it being the country side, but can be accessed at the local café).

Our house is walking distance to Shell Beach, to most exclusive and unmapped beach in the area. Nearby, there are also hundreds of miles of trails to explore in the Tomales State Park. Also, within a few minutes drive, there are several good places to eat out.

The house, built in the 1950s by a New York architect has separate upstairs and downstairs living spaces. The upstairs houses permanent tenants. Due to excellent design, the spaces feel very private from each other, with separate entrances and gardens. Should you decide to stay at Canterbury Orchard, we can give you great insider tips on our favorite local adventures.

Car: Recommended

There are hundreds of miles of trails in the area to explore. From the house, you can walk to Shell Beach and the Tomales State Park Trail System by following Camino Del Mar to the end and going down the trail. It’s less than a mile total. It’s a great place to swim, especially for childrn in the bay and in warm water with no ocean swells. At low tide you can walk back along the shore to Chicken Ranch Beach, and back to the house along the road. A longer loop would be to climb up the road just SE of the house, Via Del Vista, to its end. Then continue straight up a dirt driveway that will become a trail. When you come to a “T” in the trail, turn right (Johnstone Trail) and it goes down to Shell Beach. That’s about 2 hours in total.

A good source of information for going further afield is the Bear Valley Visitor Center at Pt. Reyes National Seashore. This will give you information to the Point Reyes Lighthouse closeby and the ocean beaches.

Five Brooks Stables provides guided horse rides in the Point Reyes National Seashore to the beach. Blue Water Kayaking provides rental boats on Tomales Bay.

There are several good places to eat out. In Inverness, Salt Water is good with wine on tap. Vladimir’s is good for a beer. In Point Reyes Station, the Pine Cone Café is yummy for breakfast and lunch…good shakes! Pizza Reyes is reasonable and very good, gourmet pizzas. Stellina’s is more upscale and very good. The Olema Inn in Olema is also a nice spot for an upscale dinner. If you want to buy your own oysters and bring them home, we recommend Tomales Bay Oyster Co. which is on Highway 1 North about 15 minutes out of Point Reyes Station on the left.

Enjoy in all four seasons!

Walk to Beach. Sunny lawn. Tranquil Orchard setting. Easy to get to San Francisco. Close to small town shops and restaurants in Point Reyes Station. The gateway to the miles of trails and beaches in the National Seashore.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Quiet and peaceful, yet centrally located for good eats and adventures on foot or by horse, car or boat.
