Perfect Escape

I decided to rent out the house for a good amount of time. Meg could not have been more helpful. Everything I asked for was taken care of quickly and efficiently. It is a wonderful little house and I hope to stay there again!

Private retreat

  • 4 of 5

This eclectic and private little house has lovely views of Tomales Bay through the trees. Built in the treetops on a hill overlooking the bay, it's a great place for birdwatching. It is very comfortable for one, or two persons willing to share a bed.

Owner's Response: Thanks Joyce! We were happy to host you and you definitely captured the privacy and charm of Fern Cottage. We are right near all restaurants and shopping of Point Reyes just above Tomales Bay but you do feel quite remote on 3 acres. Thanks again! Sincerely, Meg
