Beautiful house in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

I had the privilege of staying in this beautiful house for a weekend getaway with friends to celebrate a birthday. The property is located in a beautiful setting. From the house, you can see tomales bay and the surrounding areas and each of the rooms have a deck attached. The house was very clean and well-kept and we loved using the gourmet kitchen during our stay. There is a tasty tap room just across the street and a local grocery store as well. It's also just a short drive to Marshall, where you can buy oysters to bring back to the house to eat! We were a group of 8 people (4 couples) and the place fit us comfortably with room to spare. Thank you Kim for your hospitality!

Beautiful home on Sir Francis Drake Blvd

  • 4 of 5

The house is lovely and the steps are not as steep as some reviews have said. The house is easy to find and close to Point Reyes Station and the beaches. The kitchen its very nice, as are the bedrooms. It is right next to a busy restaurant and there is a bit of noise if the windows are open. There are no screens on the windows. It was record breaking hot when we visited, and it was still fairly comfortable at night without air conditioning. The beds are very comfortable. There is a paucity of comfortable seating in other areas of the house and on the decks.

Great house, spacious and comfortable. Short on wine glasses

  • 5 of 5

The Drake was an excellent choice for our reunion. Steps coming up from garage are a workout when carrying loads both up and down- especially treacherous at night due to lack of lighting. They are also very uneven so caution must be used. That said, the house itself worked out well for us. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Wonderful house, spacious views, great location.

  • 5 of 5

We 4 couples greatly enjoyed our 3 nights at The Drake, with a fine master bedroom, 2 more queen-size bedrooms and a 4th bedroom with fold-out double bed. The kitchen was spacious and well equipped and organized, and we enjoyed a big table that seated all 8 of us and a very light, spacious living room. It and most rooms and the deck all had views over the bottom of Tomales Bay and the Marin County hills to the east. The Drake is located across the road from a restaurant, bar & market-- very handy!-- and an easy drive to all the points of interest in the Point Reyes national Seashore. We highly recommend The Drake!

What a perfect spot for our small group to stay. Close enough to Pt. Reyes sights and a magnificent view of Tomales Bay. The steps up to the house were overgrown with weeds and grass and a bit slippery and the steps in the house definately were a topic for discussion. You get quite a workout carrying up luggage and food! Not recommend for anyone with knee issues or limited mobility. The house was clean and very comfortable. We had a lovely time.

thank you for sharing this home!
