Property description

Inverness, CA. Fantastic retreat for family and friends. Two minute walk to Chicken Ranch Beach on Tomales Bay - a terrific local beach for families. Spend hours on the beach and then walk back to the house to enjoy panoramic views of the Bay, Black Mountain and countryside, bird-watching and quiet, starry nights.

Just minutes away from numerous ocean and bay beaches and hikes in Point Reyes National Seashore and Tomales Bay State Park. Kayak rentals only 200 yards down the street.

3 BR, 2+ BA (3 showers, 1 tub); panoramic bay views from living areas and bedrooms; spacious deck with amazing view, wifi, cable tv, dishwasher, washer and dryer.

This is a perfect place for 3 couples or two small families.

Main house has 2 BR, 1BA and kitchen; attached cottage has 1BR, 1BA. Both house and cottage have wood-burning stoves - firewood provided. Two-car garage with ping-pong table for spirited competitions. Mud room with shower for easy clean-up from day's activities.

Sunny, large kitchen fully stocked with cooking utensils, spices and staples. (When we aren't renting the house, we use it for family gatherings and feasts.) Weber BBQs.

One mile from Inverness general store, bakery and shops, five miles from Point Reyes Station grocery stores, bakery and restaurants.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: For 40 years our family has spent New Year's Eve on North Beach. When we got the opportunity to buy a vacation home in Inverness we knew it was perfect! We love how close this is to the East Bay and to San Francisco. A complete retreat away from the hustle and bustle, but we can still get back to it if we need to. This house has been a great family retreat, for hiking, going to the beach or just being together for meals, reading books, watching movies and playing games. We're happy to share it with you.

Why the Owner Chose Inverness, CA, USA:
Whether it's raining out or sunny, or cold and foggy, waking up in Inverness you feel relaxed after a quiet night's sleep.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love walking up to the house, opening the front door and.....walking onto the deck! It always surprises people to open the front door and to be on the deck and seeing the view of beautiful Tomales Bay. We can walk to Chicken Ranch beach in 2 minutes, 10 mins drive to Shell Beach and it's a short drive to any number of ocean beaches or hiking trails. A 10 minute drive to Pt. Reyes station.
