The sumptuous king-size bed, guest robes, organic soaps and other amenities will ease your senses. A cast-iron gas fireplace provides warmth and romantic ambiance. The spacious deck, with steamer chairs and hammock, provide everything needed to relax and enjoy the ebb and flow of the tides on Tomales Bay. Settle in and let the wildlife and changing light on the water entertain you.
The cottage is in the heart of the Point Reyes National Seashore, on the way to the lighthouse and just minutes from the extraordinary beaches of Western Tomales Bay.

Year Purchased: 2016
About: We have been Bay Area residents for over 25 years. We love traveling, hiking, bird watching, sailing, architecture, fine art, and great food. Inverness and Point Reyes are among our favorite places in the world. Being in the design profession, we appreciate the original character and simple elegance of the cottage and hope you will too. We enjoy sharing our special place with guests and go out of our way to provide a memorable and relaxing experience that will make you want to come back again and again.
Why Inverness, CA, USA:
We purchased Sea Star cottage for a number of reasons: Firstly, it is impossibly romantic! The cottage sits on piers over the water on Tomales Bay. The views are breathtaking and it is the most tranquil place you can imagine. We love the simple, rustic elegance of the cottage architecture. It has been completely renovated yet maintains its original charm of the 1920s. The interior is inviting, cozy and stylish. The cottage is located in Inverness, a small town on the shores of Tomales Bay and among the best- preserved marine and wildlife habitats in the United States. It is beautiful at any time of the year. We love birdwatching, and for us there is no better place for watching birds than from the cottage deck, which sits on piers over the tidal waters. It’s simply magical. “Spot,” our own seagull, greets you on arrival and thinks of himself as your personal concierge, especially at feeding time. The cottage is a five-minute drive from acclaimed Point Reyes National Seashore and Park. We love being outdoors and this is a perfect place for hiking, cycling, kayaking, visiting beaches and witnessing wildlife migrations (whales, sea lions and a variety of bird species). We love fine food and the area is known for organic farming, artisanal foods, cheese, fresh oysters and acclaimed restaurants.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cottage sits on piers over the tidal waters of Tomales Bay. Its unique location provides some of the best views of any property in Inverness. The cottage is charming, authentic, comfortable and stylish. It was built in the early 1900s, and although it has been completely renovated, the original design integrity has been maintained. It is surrounded by wildlife and nature, making it an outstanding destination for unplugging from the stress of modern life.
