I grew up spending weekends and summers in this house, retreating from the urban demands of San Francisco. I have had the chance to raise my own children in this timeless place. Inverness remains a magical place that I hope will always be a place where I can retreat and unwind.

This is a second generation family vacation cabin. With all the fabulous memories and the continued attraction to the area, we want to keep this treasure in the family.
Staying at this house has always meant a slower pace of life. There is deliberately no TV or internet at the house. There are book, board games and sports equipment. It is truly a place to take a time out from the fast pace and constant accessibility of our lives today. TV and internet are available nearby but the need to be intentional about accessing them keeps me honest about truly being on vacation. Tennis courts and Tomales Bay are within 2 blocks of the house. Foot paths in the area provide easy access to all of Inverness. Nearby hiking trails and fire roads offer even more choices for encounters with nature and spectacular vistas.
We had a fantastic time at the cabin. It's kind of perfect in every way. Loved the deck, your decorations, the hammock. We'd really like to visit again some time. Thanks for everything!
Lovely home, clean, quiet and very private. Easy access to nature and town-life.
Best of both worlds!
This is a lovely, rustic vacation spot. It is kept in very tidy order, with everything you need available and well-organized. It's also very clean, which I appreciated. It's down a steep driveway and so has a very private feeling. There is a big yard and deck, but we couldn't use those much due to rain. The one complaint I have is I thought the cleaning fee of $100 was high, considering they ask guests to remove the trash/recycling, run the dishwasher, and take off all the bedding/linens. Overall, it was still reasonably priced considering the area, especially if you are using the bunkhouse. We would definitely stay here again.
This is a comfortable, cozy rustic home with a big wrap-around deck. All the amenities of a vacation home make it a very nice place for an afternoon/evening gathering, and it has room for eight people to stay over comfortably. Everyone enjoyed hanging out on the large wrap-around deck. There's a long flight of stairs from the road to the house, but cars can drive down a steep driveway to unload and deliver anyone who has trouble walking. In addition to the two bedrooms in the house, there are four beds in the sleeping cabin, two each in two areas but no door between the areas. I'd definitely come back!
My family stayed here over Labor Day Weekend and had a wonderful time getting away from the hustle and bustle of it all. The house is in a great location - about a 20 minute walk into town and just steps from hiking trails that take you through the backwoods of Inverness. The deck is a perfect compliment to the home and gets a lot of day time sun to allow for breakfast, lunch and dinner outdoors. Our 1 year old was with us and the house was very baby friendly. All in all we had a wonderful time.
The Property was beautiful. The cabin was comfortable and very cozy.
The charming house is in a convenient location in the town of Inverness, one can walk to the library and the town store in about 15-20 minutes. The house is comfortable (although the kitchen is narrow, it meets all the basic needs), and the guest cabin is a wonderful additional space. The best is the huge yard with apple and pear trees, a big hammock, and the wrap-around deck, and the feeling of peace, restfulness, isolation and spaciousness from the beautiful tree-covered hillsides. There's no cell reception at the house, but a brief walk to the tennis courts downhill brings you to an area with reception for those who just must run and get their fill.
Tennis court access comes with rental.
