We are renting Foxglove and Maple Cottage together during the Winter Holiday period!
Foxglove is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath modern home set on 12 acres on a sunny hillside facing East overlooking Point Reyes Station and Tomales Bay. Maple Cottage is a large studio with Cal King bed and full bath just a few steps from Foxglove. Together they have 4 bedrooms (1 Cal King, Queen, Queen, 2 twins).
You'll love the tasteful modern/rustic design and landscaping (created and maintained by the owner and author of a book on California gardens). The home was custom built with parents and kids in mind, so it's perfect for families!
Foxglove has 3 bedrooms, (two with queen beds and 1 with 2 twins.) and two full baths. The large open floor plan is ideal for families to spend time together, with the kitchen and island opening out to the dining/living area, and out onto the deck. Outside there are benches and places to wander off for some quiet personal time.

We frequently cook delicious gourmet meals in our full kitchen. Our Calphalon pots, high-quality knives, and kitchen staples are available for your use, as well as condiments and spices.
The property has a beautiful garden landscaped with local materials and native plants. It is conveniently located a mile and half from the charm and cuisine in Point Reyes Station, and less than a mile from Inverness Park Market (home of the world famous West Marin Rueben!) and a couple miles from the Point Reyes National Seashore Headquarters and trail heads. You can walk straight out your door and soon connect with the trails in the park, no car necessary.
The property is 100 yards up private driveway from a very quiet road. You will enjoy your own front deck and rear porch. A small terrace with bench is adjacent to the home, and is shared with our other rental, the Maple Cottage. The large deck has a new Weber gas grill (purchased June 2016). There's also a nice ping pong table on the front patio.
Unless you need something, you probably will not see the owners. The owners' house is 50 yards up the driveway, and can be seen from your home, but they have separate parking areas and entrances. The layout is such that you will feel comfortably secluded, and most likely will not see anybody other than yourselves. They are a quiet retired couple, active hikers, and very friendly.
You are given a lockbox code and arrival information, so you are free to arrive/depart when it's convenient for you. I am just a few minutes away if anything comes up, and I'm available 24/7. I enjoy making sure our guests are comfortable and respect your privacy, so unless you ask me to, nobody will be coming over unannounced. The gardener does come for a few hours on Wednesday mornings.
We are about 150 yards from a quiet residential road that only sees a handful of cars each day. Most of the homes on our road are tucked back into the forest on long driveways. Just strolling up and down our road is a lovely hike, with plenty of plants and wildlife to take in. No streetlights, no light pollution, no noise. Just peace and quiet.
As guests of Point Reyes Vacation Rentals, along with your reservation confirmation you will receive our "Insider's Guide", full of local information, tips, recommendations, etc... to help you plan your stay in the area, and we are happy to answer any questions you may have.
It's a 2 minute drive, or a lovely 1.5 mile, 20 minute walk (or 5 minute bike ride) from your doorstep into Point Reyes Station (town) or to the gourmet Perry's Deli in Inverness Park. The Point Reyes National Seashore is minutes away by car, foot, or bike. You could easily spend the entire day without touching your car.
