Car: Necessary

Just over an hour from San Francisco, yet like visiting another country. Private, yet lots to do. A foodie farm-to-table mecca, with oysters, grass fed beef, organic farms, Cow Girl Creamery, Wineries, Brick Maiden Bakery. Great restaurants or private meals with the farmers. Kayaking, paddle boarding, sailing, trail running, hiking, horseback riding, biking or just be lazy. Blissful.

Less than an hour to the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Bodega Bay.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Dana is a designer that travels the world. With a love of flea markets, yoga, writing and nature she seeks to share her magical retreat on the water with you.

Why the Owner Chose Marshall, CA, USA:
The view. The unique furnishings. The privacy. Truly the coolest home on the Bay. With lots of room to enjoy the outside, the land is over an acre. Private beach. Set on the water, not the highway. Great alternative to Nick's Cove when you are seeking value, privacy and first class waterfront accommodations!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This private property has two homes. Perfect for retreats, special events or landmark holidays. The separate cottage originally was one of the main boat building sites on Tomales Bay. Spacious and unique, it can be used for yoga, lectures or as an extra home for additional guests. It is large and has a full kitchen, bath and separate bedroom.
