Property description

The Barrel House sits on a very private 4-acre space that is adjacent to Federal and State Park land, and through which run two streams. There is absolutely no more spectacular view available than the panoramic views from every room, and the deck, of the Barrel House. You can see the world, from Stinson Beach/Bolinas to Point Reyes, while no one can see you. The sun bathing on the spacious deck, and the hot tub, are very private and tranquil. This house sits before you get into downtown Stinson Beach so that, on busy holiday weekends, you arrive to the property before any traffic jams begin.

This is a strictly non-smoking house both inside and out.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The Barrel House offers guests a vacation rental like no other. Spend a week or a weekend in a converted water tank. Views of the ocean and village below, romantic spiral staircase to the bedroom. Away from the world and close enough to walk to the village for dinner. Amazing.
