Dancing sunlight sparkles on the water, while a wood-burning stove in living room offers a cozy treat. View the bay from plush queen sofa bed in sun-room. A comfy queen bed in bedroom overlooks garden. A large upper deck has charcoal barbeque, soothing glider couch, table and chairs. Lower deck has a kayak ramp to the water and beach at low tide.

Charming Home on Tomales Bay at Spectacular Pt Reyes National Seashore
Additional Location Information
We are adjacent to Pt Reyes National Seashore on Tomales Bay in West Marin County just 1 hour from the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco. These words by our guests best describe the experience awaiting your arrival at Raspberry House:
Our stay here (twice now) was like being in paradise. Everything about it was fabulous...location, views, accomodations and an amazing small garden of Eden. It was so comfortable and relaxing we did not want to leave. Great oysters, a store with kayak rentals is just a 10 minute walk down the road. Wonderful hikes and walks all around and constantly changing views of the bay as the clouds roll in. The place is spacious and charming.
I have stayed at Raspberry House at least 6 times over the the 15 years: University group fun, with parents, graduation career planning and now with my own family. Each time I swim in the bay, get a great sun tan, hike, or surf and kayak across the bay. But best of all, relax and there is something about the place, the view, the view from the sheltered spa overlooking the water, the oysters, the books and the fireplace that makes it work every time. The access from the car is a matter of steps yet there is no road noise. The water on the beach below the side of the house can be heard at night, it is a dream, the moon across the water and idea that maybe this time I will catch a halibut fishing from the deck!
I stay at this wonderful nurturing place every chance I get. I've recommended it to all of my friends, and treated one couple who needed some healing time to a weekend there. It worked its magic. They still remark about it.
Nothing else quite matches the peace, tranquility, and natural beauty of this setting (I've stayed at others in the area). The owner has beautifully decorated this comfortable home and infused it with healing energy.
The unbelievable Pt Reyes National Park is just across the bay and only minutes away by car. I've never seen so much wildlife, giant redwood trees and even a reconstructed Native American village.
My only regret is not finding Raspberry House sooner! I highly recommend this peaceful place on pristine Tomales Bay. Treat yourself, your family, or your sweetheart You will want to extend your stay.
