About Deborah Quinn

The property is owned by the Kent family and has been a family vacation home for more than 40 years. Five generations have spent summers in Inverness at the 1st Valley House. Many members of the family live in Berkeley, CA which is an easy one hour drive, making weekend trips convenient. We enjoy trips to the beach, hiking, picking blackberries, reading by the fireplace, and most of all being together. Many family members have or have had dogs over the years and they love romping on the beaches or sunning themselves on the large deck.

Deborah Quinn purchased this House in 1965

Why Deborah Quinn chose Inverness

Inverness has traditionally been a summer destination for University families in Berkeley. The Kent family has owned or rented summer homes in Inverness for over 100 years. We still have old diaries from family members coming to the area in the 1800's. Through hard work by many people, some in our family included, Inverness has never lost it's small town charm. The beaches remain pristine. We are literally surrounded by State Park and National Seashore. It's a beautiful and unique place.

What makes this House unique

The 1st Valley House has a tranquil and secluded feel. It is on a small creek and is surrounded by trees. At the same time, it is only a five minute walk to downtown Inverness where you have The Inverness Store, two restaurants and a coffee house. Live entertainment can often be enjoyed at these restaurants.Beaches on Tomales Bay are a five minute drive from the house and ocean beaches can be reached by car in fifteen minutes. Point Reyes Station is a 10 minute drive from the house with more shopping and great places to eat.

                                                              We loved our time at the Kent house. Both bedrooms are in separate buildings from kitchen and living room. One bedroom had to use bathroom which was in another separate building. Can be cold going out to use bathroom.

                                                              Loved the creek, the hills, the deck, and the cozy indoor spaces. The house was well equipped, and the hosts were friendly and helpful.

                                                              Great retreat!

                                                              We stayed here with our son, his girlfriend, and our dog. Privacy for all. Warm gathering area. Walkable neighborhood. Quiet and peaceful!

                                                              Our Stay at the Kent House

                                                              Janel V.Sacramento, Ca.

                                                              We enjoyed our three-day stay at the Kent house. The house is next to a small creek that you can hear gurgling indoors-lovely! It was pretty cold during our stay since it was the end of November, and we used the fireplace every day. This made the main cabin nice and toasty. The beds in the "sleeping cabins" were very comfortable; they have thick down comforters (my daughter calls them marshmallow blankets). Staying at the Kent house was a great experience. We will likely return in the summer.

                                                              Wonderful Inverness get away!
