Tomales Bay is one of those magical places rarely found in todays busy world. A tiny inlet of the Pacific Ocean. Utterly pristine. Unparalleled beauty. A sense of magic is palpable when here, watching the misty morning over the water, or the deer grazing in the early evening. And place such a this requires an equally special location to base yourself from to allow you explore and experience all that is on offer. Welcome to Brynant Cottage.
Located in the tiny seaside town of Marshall, Brynant Cottage is perched on a slight elevation affording you sweeping views of shimmering waters of Tomales Bay. Lovingly decorated with bright and colourful art that embodies the spirit of both San Francisco and the Bay area, tastefully appointed with gorgeous hand made wood furniture, and stocked with everything you need to have a comfortable stay, the cottage is ideal for couples, families and friends looking to slow down and enjoy one of the most beautiful locations in all of California.
At 1500sq feet the cottage is bright and spacious, while still feeling cozy. Beautiful hardwood floors are laid throughout the home . Snuggle up in the main living room, the heart of the home, on the wrap- around couch and enjoy the wood stove while watching a movie on the state of the art entertainment system complete with satellite tv. The open concept design of Brynant Cottage means the main seating area flows seamlessly into the modern kitchen keeping conversation going while lunch or dinner is prepared. The kitchen is complete with new stainless steel appliances and ample lighting. The drawers and shelves are stocked with all the tools of the trade you need to prepare a meal using California’s incredible range of fresh and local ingredients.. The large wooded family table comfortable seats eight people.
Brynant Cottage provides you with ample outdoor space to enjoy in all seasons. Enjoy your morning coffee, or an evening glass of local wine on one of two decks leading off the bedrooms and main room. Sweeping views of the water await you, and there is a comfortable lounge area to settle into. There is no better place to watch the sun sink behind the Marin headlands (easily accessible for hiking!) than Brynant Cottage. Enjoy the gardens surrounding the home in the summer months from this perch. On a winter evening step outside under the star filled sky and enjoy a soak in your own private hot tub, an added bonus of Brynant Cottage
At the end of the day when you are ready for sleep after much exploring and perhaps indulgence, the bedrooms and comfortable beds of Bryant Cottage will await you.
The Master bedroom is a tranquil space decorated to reflect the seaside setting. Snuggle into your plush queen size bed, complete with quilts and crisp white linens. The master bathroom has granite counters, and soaker tub. No details has been over overlooked. A private deck space is located off this main bedroom for you to enjoy.
The second bedroom is complete with two brightly decorated beds facing onto a second media room- a kids delight as well as most adults! Large glass sliding doors allow the space to fill with natural light. Two sofas facing the tv can easily be converted into sleeping space if you have a larger group. The second bathroom located inside this bedroom is tiled in travertine stone with a shower for freshening up.
And added bonus of Brynant Cottage - for those not wanting to cook or looking to explore the famed food culture of California we are literally steps away from the famed Hog Island Oyster Company (reservations a must) or The Marshall Store (something for everyone at this Oyster Shack Smoke House!) Famed restaurants literally dot the surrounding area and artisans abound such as the renowned Cheese producers Cowgirl creamy. Tomales Bay is literally a gastronomic destination and Brynant Cottage puts you on the door step of everything on offer
The nearby Point Reyes National Seashore Park is not to be missed- only a twenty minute drive from Bryant Cottage. Point Reyes has multiple incredible day hikes with expansive ocean views, wildlife galore (think elk, foxes, whales, owls) and the opportunity to enjoy it without large crowds of people
