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.

Great get away to be by the bay

  • 5 of 5

The two bedroom half of this 2 unit property was just the perfect place to take a good friend or two and relax. I brought a friend who really needed to get away and laugh. It is magical and calming. I loved how the pelicans, seagulls, and jelly fish were our neighbors. One night we were serenaded by the community of coyotes in the distance. It only lasted a couple of minutes, but then you knew you were in the wilderness of northern california. Bolinas is a town to visit and the Hog Island oysters are great. Two nights is not enough. I recommend 3 or more. Wonderful place right on the bay.

Wonderful Bayside Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Sea Mist Cottage! The cottage was spacious enough for four people with comfortable chairs and a couch. The best part is the view from the living room and the deck. So peaceful with that wonderful view. I can't wait to go back again.

Sea Mist was the perfect place to celebrate our Anniversary!

  • 5 of 5

Sea Mist Cottage was everything I had hoped for, from the spectacular views from our own private deck, cozy rooms, & perfectly outfitted kitchen to the perfect location! Lori was very accommodating & we will definitely be back!

Perfect in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

Sea Mist is a classic Tomales Bay cottage with amazing picture window views of the bay. We have stayed in it many times over the past several years but recently they did a major clean up of every part of it, while retaining all of the great old timey-ness, so now it really sparkles! Highly recommended!!!

Gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we stepped out onto the proprety we knew we'd love this place. SM 1 was a charming, romantic and delightful. There isn't a bad view.

The weather cooperated: we got warm sunny days and beautifully lit nights full of stars.

The home itself is well furnished and has everything you would need for a weekend or week stay. Thanks for a wonderful getaway!

My favorite VRBO

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage with loads of seals, birds, tides... Everything was great. Lori was wonderful to work with, too. Also, the proximity to beautiful Point Reyes is an incredible bonus.
