Frank's Place on Inverness Ridge is a charming Point Reyes vacation rental home with panoramic Tomales Bay views. With spacious living and sleeping areas, wifi and an outdoor hot tub, it's the perfect Point Reyes lodging for families, small groups, or couples seeking a coastal getaway.
The natural setting is spectacular, with lush surrounding forest giving way to open vistas and rough-and-tumble rhododendron gardens. Here on the ridge nights are dark and quiet, and mornings are beautiful whether drenched in clear light or sheathed in fog. Scan the gardens or the meadow below and you may see deer, or even a fox or bobcat.
This classic Inverness style home was designed and built by local architect Jim Campe in 1986. The living room, bedrooms, decks and hot tub all face out over forested parkland to Tomales Bay and the hills beyond. In the main living area wood and tile floors and high, beamed ceilings create an expansive and elegant atmosphere, while clearstory windows capture the afternoon sun. Just down the hall, the carpeted master suite features a king-size bed and large private bathroom with two sinks, giant tub and walk-in shower.
Downstairs are two additional bedrooms with a shared second bathroom. A queen-size bed and TV in one of the bedrooms make it great for a second couple. The other is just right for kids, with two twin beds. A large inflatable mattress and porta-crib are also available if needed. Step out onto the downstairs porch to access the private hot tub.
An additional office room upstairs includes a sofa/daybed that can be made up for yet another sleeping option. WiFi from a cable Internet connection is available throughout, and there's a small computer in the office if you didn't bring your laptop. Cable TV is present upstairs and down, as well as a stereo system in the living room. CDs, games, puzzles, art and many books are here for your enjoyment.TripAdvisor property ID 2102106...Read more

We rate our weekend at Frank's Place as one of the highlight getaways of 2010 for us. The house is beautiful, the area is spectacular, and the owner is very gracious. In fact, we are going again iin august 2011. Don't miss it.

We have a great family Christmas in Inverness. Frank's place would be great for a couple but was big enough to hold three generations of our family in comfort. Lovely views of Tomales Bay. Easy access to the Point Reyes Seashore. the hightlight of our holiday was hiking to Chimney Rock and seeing elephant seals basking on the beach on Christmas Day. The setting sun on the the cliff of Drake's Bay was gorgeous! A holiday to remember.
“A wonderful open and airy house with beautiful views”

The house was as described by the owner. It was well kept and very clean.
The kitchen was well equipped for a party of 8. The views from all the
windows was gorgeous and the hot tub was well used by all. We were there
during foggy and rainy days and sitting in the hot tub with the soft drizzle was
quite the experience. There is also a fireplace which also added to overall
We like to hike and could get to Inverness Ridge (and Point Reyes Natl
Seashore) by walking to the top of Drake's View Road (about 1 mile). You
need to drive to most other places in order to hike.

From booking to arriving, to the stay itself, Frank's Place made life easier, even if just for the weekend. Great view of the bay with a bit of mountain in the foreground, and that hot tub perched on the hillside was great. The place itself is very comfortable with lots of windows and high ceilings. I hope to return soon!

Frank's Place is everything I hoped for and more. The views are unbelievable, space and furnishings, elegant yet comfortable, the hottub sublime. We stayed for the weekend and wished we could stay for the month. We will definitely return!

For our expanding but widely scattered family to enjoy "Franks Place" for Thanksgiving was the start of a new family tradition, we can only hope.
The house is in a beautiful setting, lovingly cared for, and a perfect environment for a family to gather. When a small mechanical problem developed, a caring, nearby neighbor was immediately dispatched to solved the problem. And no need to bring any books, CDs, or DVDs....the library allows guests to explore something you've always wanted to read/hear/see.
