About Lori Kyle
Two things to know about us: the first is we love the outdoors. We ride horses on the trails with kindly mounts from a local stable and ride bikes throughout the Tomales Bay area. We walk and hike the trails and love the surprises that come with each season: a swath of lupine on a spring-green hillside; ospreys feeding their chicks in their pole-top nest, low-tide walks that reveal anemones, star fish, fan kelp and tiny crabs usually hidden by high water. The second thing to know is that we love to eat. Fresh seafood and locally grown organic foods are available year 'round. Just-harvested oysters are a 5-minute walk from our front gate and the area's restaurants merit several stars with varied cuisines and the freshest seasonal ingredients...Heaven!
Lori Kyle purchased this House in 2004
Why Lori Kyle chose Marshall
We'd been visiting the Point Reyes area for decades-- family day trips to the beaches and hiking trails and getaway weekends just for ourselves. We always dreamed of our own home in the area, but it was rare to hear of properties for sale... so it remained just a dream. When the opportunity for this magical bayside cottage came up, we jumped at the chance and have been been delighted with our decision ever since. It's been 12 years and the WOW hasn't worn off. We're delighted to share it with you!

Dreamy , divine,
Lolo’s Cottage is the perfect home for a relaxing and rejuvenating respite from the hustle of everyday life. It is a home away from home. and quite well- appointed and equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Its perch just above the lapping water of Tomales Bay allows for viewing stunning sunsets and watching a myriad of sea and shorebirds skim across the water.
Wonderful, welcoming home on the Bay ....couldn't have been nicer!
Lori has created a warm and welcoming vacation home sitting on top of the Bay. The furnishings are artistic and comfortable, the layout was perfect for our group of 2 couples and one child. The home is stocked with everything you'd want in a vacation rental.....pots, pans, dishes, oyster shucker, etc. The location can't be beat, easy parking and an absolutely beautiful garden in front. You feel the love in this place. Absolutely perfect escape to Point Reyes!
Beautiful and peaceful retreat
Lolo's Cottage never disappoints. We feel at home the minute we walk in and see the cozy and welcoming home with its spectacular views. Thank you for creating and sharing an exceptionally peaceful and beautiful haven.
It's was a treat to host your family at Lolo's and I look forward to seeing you next season! Thanks, too, for taking the time to write a review :-)
Amazing House on the Water
Our stay at the Lola Cottage was amazing. The pictures don't do justice; it was much more spacious than I expected. My family of 5 spent a wonderful week at this house that is perched on the water. The kitchen is fully stocked and we cooked almost every night. The bed linens are luxurious. And, the million dollar view is amazing. If you are comfortable relaxing in a quiet community, this house is perfect for you. To get groceries, it is a good 15 minute drive to town so plan accordingly. The Point Reyes park is nearby and don't miss Heart's Desire beach. Hog Island and Marshall Market are both great and delicious. The house was immaculate and very clean. You can listen to the water lapping on the shore. Oh, one more perk, you can drink delicious well water! We highly recommend this magical spot.
Lolos is a treat... just as it looks in the photos but with that deep tranquility you get from being right on the water, with birdsongs and sightings, changing weather (cozy up by the fire and still get those views or sunbathe on the deck), and of course the proximity to local oysters, cheese makers, bakers...
We cooked a lot and the open kitchen and outdoor BBQ were a joy.
Beautiful and relaxing oasis on Tomales Bay
We had a fantastic Christmas holiday at Lolo's Cottage. Lori was a gracious and thoughtful host, her home is clean and beautifully decorated, the kitchen is very well stocked for those who love to cook, and the setting is beautiful and relaxing. We enjoyed getting Oysters up the road, driving to gorgeous daytime hikes in Pt. Reyes, and the delicious offerings at Pt. Reyes station. This is a great location for a getaway. We would go back!
West Marin is known for its exceptional restaurants, many featuring Tomales Bay seafood, local artisan cheeses and organic ingredients. Did I mention the bakeries? There are three...all are scrumptious! Art galleries, boutique shopping and a fabulous spa are memorable destinations during your visit—all within a short drive. Kayak adventures launch just 1/4 mile from the cottage…explore the inlets and secluded western shores of the Pt. Reyes peninsula. Harbor seals often swim alongside your kayak in the winter and spring seasons! 1/4 mile in the other direction and you'll find Hog Island Oyster Company, offering BBQ facilities and freshly harvested Tomales Bay oysters. Beaches, hiking, biking and equestrian trails abound at Point Reyes National Seashore and nearby State Parks.
