About Belinda Meadows
My name is Robert Galliani. I am a 3rd generation San Franciscan. My wife of 23 years and I have three children ages 20, 22 and 24. We happily and very fortunately live in a beautiful place called Marin County California where our lives are intertwined and revolve around our children. We bought The Blackthorne and continually improve it. We invite people to rent it nightly and weekly to experience this unique, one-of-a-kind, hand made home, which we will keep in our family for generations.
Belinda Meadows purchased this House in 2010
Why Belinda Meadows chose Point Reyes Station
In 1975 a friend of mine, who is a Princeton educated engineer and his wife bought a spectacular acre of land next to the Point Reyes National Seashore, halfway between the village of Inverness CA and the town of Point Reyes CA. (1 hour from San Francisco). With the help of master craftsmen, he built a spectacular 4-story wood crafted 'castle' resembling a giant tree house that his wife named 'Blackthorne' after the main character in James Clavell's novel SHOGUN. From 1982 to October 2010 they ran it as a very successful and famous B&B. We bought it because the location is heaven on earth. The house is placed adjacent to a a national park surrounded and minutes from some of the best beaches in the world as well as the quaint town of Point Reyes with its fine restaurants and shops and the village of Inverness. 100,000 acres of national park covered with hiking trails is at our doorstep while Tomales Bay is 8 houses down the street and the city of San Francisco is a one hour drive away.

Eclectic house with a huge variety of place decks & rooms to hang out. Location close to lots of activities.
Wonderful for family Reunions
The property is fabulous; funky enough, well located, serene and fun fir a large immediate family like ours. I wish we had known there was no amenities like other rentals (spices, one pot of coffee or tea makings, some plastic wrap at least, but there was a well stocked store just down the street. It’s beautiful and we’ll try to rent it again...it’s very popular, with good reason! Bravo!
We love this place!
We had a wonderful stay in this very unique property. Wish we could stay longer!
