This is one of those homes you see and wonder "Wow, who gets to live there?" Until recently it was just family and friends, and now it's your turn.
Built for families, the open floor plan upstairs is perfect for spending time together. Fantastic hiking, mountain biking, and strolling literally from your doorstep, as we share 100 yards of property line with the Point Reyes National Seashore along the Inverness Ridge Trail which is ideal for all levels, and connects with many other epic trails.
Tree House 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 (King, Queen, Queen, 2 Twin) 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 with high wood ceilings, with french doors leading out onto the deck with a gas BBQ and views for many miles.
The layout is truly perfect for families and small groups, whether hanging out together upstairs with the open floor plan, or wandering off for a bit of personal space. The home was re-built twenty years ago, after the Mount Vision fire, and was designed specifically to be enjoyed as a family retreat. You will enjoy the thoughtful and functional feel of this home, as well as the stunning location. Comfortable, clean, inviting, without being too ostentatious nor pretentious, this is a perfect home for relaxing with friends and family and enjoying the miles of trails literally at your doorstep.

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 and those with strollers and toddlers. 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, with some serious loops possible, like down to Drakes Estero and back, or over to Limantour Beach.
We have a nice kitchen stocked with all the condiments and spices you'll need, as well as every cooking and baking implements you can think of. Organic coffee beans, grinder, french press, coffeemaker, good sugar, cinnamon, tea, but the cream is up to you.
Interaction with guests
This property is professionally managed by Point Reyes Vacation Rentals, a small local family-run business. We work closely with the owners to provide our guests with a wonderful experience in a well maintained home. You will be provided with detailed arrival instructions for self check-in. One of us is always nearby and available all day, every day, should any issues arise or just if you have questions.
Other things to note
This home does have stairs up to the living room/kitchen area, so it is not appropriate for those with mobility issues.
If this property doesn't fit your needs, contact me. I have several other properties in the Point Reyes/Inverness area. Chances are I have just what you're looking for.
There's one small, but new, flatscreen t.v. with 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 (which can be iffy in the Point Reyes area.)
Have fun, be respectful, alert us right away if something is broken or amiss.
This is not the place for parties, if that's what you're looking for, contact me, I have other homes that might work for you.
Note: We reserve the right to enforce charges via the Airbnb Resolutions Center for damages or unreasonable use of listing utilities. Abuse of house amenities may result in post-reservation charges equal to the value of costs incurred. By booking our listing, you agree to these terms and all other house rules.
Non-guest visitors are limited to 4 without prior approval. Don't try to throw your wedding here - if that's what you're looking for, contact me, I have other properties that could work for you.
No animals - no exceptions, no matter how well behaved you may think they are, so please don't ask. If you simply must bring your pet, we can refer you to a local lady who dog-sits at her home, or to one of our other properties which welcomes dogs.
No smoking inside - does that even need to be said anymore?
Violation of either of these rules will incur a minimum $500 cleaning fee.
Other than that, we're easy and will assume that you'll be respectful and responsible.

We are Point Reyes Vacation Rentals, helping property owners market their vacation homes and to provide the best possible experiences for our guests. My wife and I both love to surf, hike, beach-comb, explore farmers markets, and eat good fresh local food prepared well. We both have careers in hospitality, and we feel strongly about the importance of customer service and the feeling of satisfaction that comes from providing others with the best possible experience. We love being hosts, and providing a nice, clean, comfortable "base camp" from which you can explore this amazing area we are so lucky to live in.
