About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-8)

Yvetot video tour now available. To watch our new tour, please click on the video link above and you'll see why our guests love coming to stay at Yvetot!

Enjoy a cup of tea snuggled up in one of the bench seats. Cook a gourmet meal in the fully-appointed kitchen. Feel the warmth from the wood-burning stove and the radiant-heated floors. Appreciate the view of Mount Vision from the private deck. Take an outdoor shower. Read a book in the hammock outside.

This and much more is Yvetot Guest House. Designed and built from largely recycled materials in 2003 by our architect son to accommodate visits from our ever-growing family, it is truly a magical place that we would like to share. It is a mile up from the town of Inverness and close to ocean-side and bay-side beaches. Hiking trails abound from just up the street to the many trails in Point Reyes National Seashore.

The house, which is 800 square feet, comfortably sleeps six people but can accommodate eight: two in the master bedroom and four in the 'children's room' - two twin beds and two twin futons with sleeping bags in the loft. Additional sleeping is possible on the bench seats in the living area and/or in the loft above the hallway.

We just added a great hot tub and deck located on the North side of the property (behind far wall of bedrooms). Sweet spot, excellent views from the tub. Guaranteed to get our kids and grandkids here more often.

There are plenty of DVD's, CD's to play on the Bose music system (into which you can plug your iPod), books, games and toys to entertain everyone. Come and have a wonderful time!

(Mexico? Check out our daughter and family's place in Alamos, find under solipaso, it is very special, too.)

About Mike or Catherine

Retired GM executive, one feral cat, love this spot on the ridge and the guest house built for family and friends. Garden is special interest.

Why Mike or Catherine chose San Francisco Bay Area

Chose the house and location for retirement...great decision! This spot is very special as sun, views, and 3 acres on the ridge top....very liveable!

What makes this cottage unique

Privacy, uniquely restful setting, and a very excellent job of design and furnishing .... our son is a talented builder and the care, attention to detail is obvious.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Secluded and lovely setting for an adventure and getting away from it all. This time we met our hosts, who were gracious and very welcoming. Catherine shared greens from her garden that were the perfect accompaniment to our locally procured lamb chops and fresh baked bread from Bovine Bakery. Dog-friendly hiking trails nearby-perfect for everyone.

We could not have enjoyed our stay more. Thank you to Mike and his family for their generosity in sharing this special place with us. From the peaceful & beautiful location, to the thoughtful and elegant design of the cabin - this was one of my favorite weekend vacations of all time. Thank you Mike - we will be back!
