About the property

4 bedroom, 2.5 bath with open upper floor plan, perfect for families.

This 4 bedroom, 3 bath home sits at the very top of the Inverness Ridge with sunset and sunrise views for miles in both directions. Hiking and mountain biking trails lead off directly from the property, which literally borders the National Park.

This beautiful home is perched at the very top of the Inverness Ridge, with sunrise and sunset views. Secluded and comfortable, it's perfect for families and groups, and can comfortably sleep 8.

The ground floor features 4 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. All rooms have windows looking out into the trees. Upstairs is a large open floor plan with kitchen, dining, living room and deck with high wood ceilings. Perfect for hanging out together.

The property shares over 200 yards of property line with the National Park, with several trails running in various directions directly from the property. Mountain bikers will be in heaven, as will hikers and bird-watchers. The trails around the property are well marked and maintained, and are ideal for strollers or those who prefer strolling to hiking. Numerous smaller trails branch off for those who wish to explore further.

This property is professionally managed by Point Reyes Vacation Rentals. You will be provided with detailed arrival instructions and a lockbox code. We're happy to meet with you in person if you prefer. Just let us know.

The house is up on the ridge, and so it gets sun all day long. But when the weather hits, it can be impressive to watch. Fortunately this house was built with that in mind, so triple-paned windows and sturdy construction will allow you to enjoy watching the show outside, while staying comfortable and relaxed inside.

Bring your mountain bikes and hiking shoes, headlamps, daypacks, and some picnic supplies.

Be sure to stock up on groceries, because once you're up here, you won't want to leave. We have a nice pantry stocked with all the condiments and spices you'll need, as well as every cooking and baking implements you can think of.

There's one small flatscreen television with basic cable and dvd player, as well as an HDMI cable for streaming from your computer. We have excellent wifi, and the property does get cell phone reception (many don't in this part of the world, but we're at the very top, so there's nothing to block the reception!)

Guestbook comments from the manager

The house is beautiful, the location feels like you're on top of the world. There is a Point Reyes National Seashore trail that follows the property line on one side and tremendous views. The house itself has plenty of room, an incredible open floor plan to enjoy, etc.

The only thing to be aware of is the TV/cable situation is essentially non existent. This is a house to disconnect at. Great wifi but the TV is a tiny 20 inch screen tucked away. So for those looking to enjoy nature, be present with their families, this is a great spot.

Comfort on top of the world

  • 5 of 5

The road up is quite a journey, but once you are there, wow. We used the house for a family gathering of 6 adults and one infant. There was plenty of bedroom space, though only one large common room with a kitchen space--so if you weren't in your room you were around everyone else.

The siting is spectacular, with amazing inland views across Tomales Bay from the front yard, and ocean views a short walk away. We took two hikes on the national seashore's trail system, which has a trailhead (and small parking area) just steps from the house.

The kitchen was well equipped, and the house was in great shape, and generally comfortable and cozy. We appreciated that the property manager arranged a late check out our last day. Would highly recommend!

The Treehouse in October

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 2 wonderful nights in this house.

Everything about it was heavenly for our group of 7.

The house floats up high above the land in the clouds.

It was comfortable, warm and spacious.

The kitchen was well-equipped and there were plenty of great books to read on a foggy day.

There are great trails right outside the door.

Everyone in our group had a great time and we truly felt lucky to be there.

Thank you to the owners of this house!

Selina and family

Beautiful and well-loved

  • 5 of 5

My large group of friends stayed at the Tree House over a weekend in April. The house is beautiful, almost as if from a movie, sitting at the top of the ridge. It's filled with evidence of being well-cared for and lived in. The kitchen has every appliance you can imagine (though it's big, so we had to search for some things), and storage areas are filled with kid's toys and family activities. We even found kayaks, paddles, and life jackets in the downstairs area! Even though we were by no means a family group (just some adults, singles and couples), we loved the house as the perfect getaway from the busy, crowded city.

We didn't meet Aaron during our trip, but all of his instructions were clear and easy to follow, and he was very responsive to emails I sent him.

The Tree House sits at the top of the Inverness Ridge, with views across Tomales Bay to the rolling hills and on a clear day you can see Mt. Helena.  Towards the Southwest you can get a peek of the Farallone Islands through the trees.  It's all trees and trails and vistas up here.  The nearest neighbor is about 200 yards away through the forest.
