About Lori

Our family, originally from the Midwest, now calls California home. We share a love for adventure, nature, good food and relaxation. We welcome you and hope you enjoy this restorative, magical slice of Northern California.

Lori purchased this house in 2015

Why Lori chose Marshall

We fell in love with Tomales Bay on our first visit - the stunning views, multitude of outdoor activities, and exquisite local food and wine - it's the best of what Northern California has to offer.

What makes this house unique

One can spend the day mesmerized by the waves on the bay, and the options for adventurous souls are endless. The famous Hog Island Oyster Co., Marshall Store and Blue Waters Kayaking are only steps from our front door. Beautiful redwood forests and recreation in the Russian River Valley lie to the North, the world-renowned wine regions of Sonoma and Napa to the East, San Francisco to the South, and the untouched natural beauty of the Point Reyes National Seashore to the West.

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

I hate to give a glowing review on this property but anything else would be a lie!( I don't want other people booking up our time) The Sea Mist has been a girls trip destination for many many years. We walk in and say "We're home" We love everything about this property except we did miss the ship wheel light cover in the den. We have made many friends in Marshall over the years and enjoy seeing them every year.

Lori is easy to work with and will address any concerns quickly.

Please never stop renting our "home away from home." Kaye, Kittie and Sally

Happy Days at Sea Mist cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent four nights at Sea Mist and we were very pleased with our choice. The weather was such that we could use the outside deck constantly apart from the first evening when we had to avail ourselves of the wood burning stove. The other three nights offered us beautiful sunsets as we washed down our Hog Island Oysters with sparkling wine bought in Napa. Cooking facilities were good and my wife made a fabulous Linguine Vongele using clams bought from Hog Island with fresh organic produce from Point Reyes station. Situated a short walk from Marshall's store (their clam chowder is a must) the location is ideal for those enjoy the serenity of Tomales Bay.

Great quiet weekend getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for me and my husband. We enjoyed the deck and privacy. I completed two puzzles that were in the closet available for guests.

The kitchen is also great for easy cooking. We would definitely come back again.

Secluded relaxing escape

  • 5 of 5

So private and quiet. The hot tub was a lovely relaxing experience with a lovely view, and the fireplace was perfectly cozy on the cold nights. Hog Island Oyster Company is a 10 minute walk away, and there are some lovely hikes just a short drive away. Lori was super communicative and helpful, allowing us to check in early and sending over a neighbor to greet us upon arrival. The only thing that wasn't the most pleasant was the water pressure in the shower, pretty nonexistent, but given the rustic nature of the house it was not unexpected.

Amazing house

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our girls weekend! The kitchen was well stocked with all of the basics, and was perfect for cooking a few meals in. Everything was very clean and tidy. The hot tub was hot and the jets were powerful. 100% would return.

What a fabulous cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Spent three nights at Sea Mist and it was just perfect for our needs. A private, comfortable, and cozy retreat for three friends celebrating their birthdays. A bright cheery place with the well equipped kitchen. We loved soaking in the hot tub at night and talking over our adventures.
