Property description

A great location to relax and getaway, or as a home base for your Bay Area Adventure. Enjoy watching the birds in the marshes of the Petaluma River. Just 1/10 mile down the road is a boat launch for kayakers, boaters and fisherman. A short drive to Sonoma and Napa for winery visits. Novato has a fabulous downtown with quaint shops and excellent restaurants. Sonoma Raceway is only 6 miles down the road for any race fans. San Francisco and Oakland are less than an hour away.
The Boathouse has a fully equipped kitchen, large bathroom with shower, and a living room/bedroom with a pull-out couch, a pillow-top queen bed, a LED flat screen TV and wifi internet.
Just outside the cottage is a private deck bordering the marsh with dining seating for 6.
The Boathouse is located at the bottom of approximately 2 1/2 flights of stairs. Access is by foot only.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Although we have lived here for over 3 years, coming home still feels like being on vacation! We look forward to sharing our cottage with you.

Why the Owner Chose Black Point-Green Point:
After living in suburban neighborhoods our whole lives, we never realized how amazing an undisturbed view into nature really is. One look out the window had us convinced we couldn't be anywhere else!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Boathouse has a definite away-from-it-all, country feel - but is still just a few minutes from downtown Novato, Safeway, Target, and Costco.
