About this listing

Charming Old Inverness cottage perched at the edge of Alder creek. Enjoy warm central heat, gas fireplace, sunny deck overlooking the creek, games and books and cozy beds. One mile to beach, one mile to Inverness Village.

The space

Our home is classic Inverness arts and crafts style, right at the edge of lovely Alder creek. There is a large sunny backyard and a large deck in front at the edge of the creek-enjoy the sounds of the creek making its way to the bay! We are a mile from Chicken Ranch beach and a 15 minute walk to the village of Inverness. We often walk to town for coffee on weekends. Our two kids enjoy Inverness and the house is very kid friendly. Ideally the home sleeps 4, but there is a sofa bed appropriate for small kids (but maybe not comfortable enough for adults), so we could consider up to 6 guests.

Guest access

You can access the backyard, with a sunny, flat grassy area, which is kid-friendly and the creek in the front yard, which is suitable for bigger kids (may need supervision).

Interaction with guests

This is not our home so we are not normally available on-site. We are available by phone/email for assistance as much as you need us to be. Otherwise, we leave you to enjoy your stay.

Other things to note

The home is comfortable and has most modern amenities.We have a selection of books, games, puzzles and a WiFi-enabled TV that can stream Netflix, Amazon, etc.. The internet connection is fast and you can access WiFi throughout the house. Our kitchen has everything you need to make meals-enjoy them at the table inside or on the deck. If the evening is cool the propane fireplace is very cozy. The central heat warms the house up very quickly. Washer/dryer is available for your laundry. In the mornings, we provide coffee for you-make it in the coffee machine or in the French press.

A lovely cottage in Inverness It was a great home base for hiking in Point Reyes. We really appreciated the welcome basket, and the incredibly well equipped kitchen. For morning and evening sun the backyard was perfect.

Peter and Christa's house was very lovely, we had a wonderful time, especially enjoyed very much of it's beautiful garden with all the spring flowers. The bedrooms and bathroom are comfortable, it was very thoughtful of them to have clean towels organized in an easy access cabinet, and provided nice basic quality soaps, especially friendly for kids. All basic amenities were functioning and equipped, Peter and Christa even prepared a basket of wine, snacks and a list of recommendations of the area. Overall it was wonderful and family friendly, we look forward to another visit sometime in the future!

The place is quiet and beautiful. It's perfect for family or couple friends trips. The towels are clean and soft, and I like that.

This little house worked very hard for our family of four and provided a terrific home base for all of our exploring around Pt. Reyes. It was convenient, comfortable, and great for relaxing after a full day of hiking. The hosts even provided a sweet welcome basket filled with wine, coffee and snacks. Highly recommend.

If you are looking for a cozy place, to hang out and read, hike, and disconnect, this is the place. Point Reyes offers many options for hiking, going to the beach, and exploring one of California's most beautiful coastlines. This place is great for a family of 4. Comfortable, clean, a heater that works well and a fireplace is all we needed to enjoy a holiday together in the peaceful community of Inverness.
