This house is a perfect romantic get away. Spacious and beautiful in the middle of nature it is located between Pt. Reyes Station and Inverness in West Marin and yet is within easy reach of everything the San Francisco Bay Area has to offer. Walk the nearby beaches and trails and maybe find where Sir Francis Drake hid some of his treasure.
After the first 4 guests each ADDITIONAL guest is $60/night/person.The house will comfortably sleep 10 and has balconies and decks with woodland views throughout. On cold nights the tile floors in the bathroom and kitchen are warm and cozy. The house can sleep up to 16 people. All rooms have hardwood floors.
Sleeping arrangements:There are 4 bedrooms. The dining room can also be used as a bedroom. There are also 3 pullout couches. There are also 2 more pullout couches in open areas. One is in the large entry room and the other is in the living room. If you are a family group or close friends There is probably not so much concern for privacy.
If you are considering an event such as a family get together, a celebration, or a seminar we can accommodate you. We can help arrange things on this end as much as possible.We charge a fee for each person attending and if they choose to stay the night the fee will be as stated. This is NOT a venue for drunkenness and loud partying til late at night. We must be respectful of the neighbors.

One is gas and the other is charcoal.
There is radiant heating throughout which is especially nice in the master bathroom and kitchen. On chill winter mornings the feel of a warm floor is nice.
Ruby Throated Hummingbirds can be seen in the backyard and from the kitchen window as they dart about the Chinese Lantern flowers
Two osprey nests also can be seen from the kitchen and the master bedroom. It is a treat to hear their cries as they circle on the thermals gaining altitude to then glide off to catch a meal. When they return sometimes they are harassed by crows or vultures or both as these thieves try to rob the ospreys of their catch. We have seen battles between the osprey pairs and groups of vultures. Each year several chicks hatch in each nest. The ospreys take turns guarding them. As one guards the other one strikes at the vultures diving toward the nest.
I designed and engineered and built our house about 30 years ago. When I say I built it I mean I acted as the contractor hiring different workers for different phases of the construction. I did build all the stairs. I did the copper gutters and downspouts and I did most of the stonework, 120 yards of stone from Sears Point which I handpicked at the quarry.
Cleanliness:We clean all contact surfaces in the house including all counter tops, table tops, door knobs, cabinet and drawer knobs, railings, chairs, table tops, window sills and any spider webs we find inside and outside (they spin new webs over night). We wash all linens including towels, sheets, pillow cases, the bedspread and table cloths. We clean the bathrooms and all floors. We also put all decorative pillows through the dryer on high.

Tax rate 10% of rent tax rate Fees for additional guests may apply....Read more
