Car: Necessary

There are so many things to do and see around Inverness! You can rent kayaks just a mile down the road at Blue Water Kayaking. We love to launch there and kayak across the bay to Tomales Bay Oyster Farm for fresh oysters. Grab a couple bags, bring them home, and shuck 'em at the house. There are countless quiet beaches to explore if you just head north on SFD Blvd in your car. People love to visit the Point Reyes Light House and the Miwok village right behind it. Check with the Marin Organic and MALT websites for farm tours and family days that might coincide with your stay here.

 

Manager info

About: We are the Fuchs family, and all five of us were born and raised here in Marin County. We feel so lucky to have found this amazing home with quick and easy access to so much of the beauty that West Marin has to offer.

Why Inverness:
Mother's Pearl stands proudly as the oldest house in Inverness. Built in 1897, it stood for the first eighteen years of its life, one lot closer to the beach until its owner had is disassembled and moved to its current location in 1915. We quite like exactly where it stands today and plan to leave it this way for a good long while!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are absolutely in love with this home! The welcoming exterior will draw you in, and each room has a way of telling you a different story about this beautiful home's history. It has been lovingly kept by all its owners throughout the decades, and we have gone to extra lengths to make sure every detail is one worth savoring.
