Comfortable house with a great view

  • 5 of 5

Our three- generation family was very happy to be in this comfortable house in the woods with the lovely deck and view of Tamales Bay. The kitchen was well equipped and there was lots of space to sit, read, and play. The open floor plan made the house feel spacious. The downstairs bedrooms were very comfortable and private. The loft bedrooms were lovely. The owner was accessible and very helpful. We were sorry to leave!

We were three generations and every one of us loved our stay in this beautiful , comfortable home in one of Northern California's most spectacular landscapes. Inverness has it all, and this house is a perfect base to explore everything from the bayside to the seaside.

Nice view. Very quiet.

  • 4 of 5

The view of Tomales Bay from the living room is lovely. The location is very quiet. There are lots of beds but not enough comfortable chairs to really coze in and enjoy visiting friends. The downstairs toilet made a big noise when you flushed it. Those with young children should be aware that the railings in the 2 balconies are too widely spaced to keep them in. Those with walking issues should know that the dirt path to the house is narrow and steep. The kitchen was small but well stocked. If you need sharp knives, bring your own.

Like staying in a treehouse....all the windows are open to the trees and beautiful surroundings.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice, quiet and cabin-like. Nestled in the trees so it felt like a treehouse. Very relaxing! Had some problems with ants. Couldn't get main floor bathroom plugs to work. A dishwasher would have been nice.

Quiet, spacious home with a view

  • 4 of 5

This was a lovely spot on Inverness ridge, not far from the entrance to Point Reyes NP. It’s a spacious two and a half level home, well-lived in so could feel a little dated to some, but had everything you need - although WiFi was very weak there. There were three of us and we each chose a different bed - place was big enough we didn’t even use the lower (master) floor. Lovely decks - great view of Tomales Bay and worth waking up in time for the sunrise because the pink of it lit the whole place aglow.
