Inverness Secret Garden Cottage
Ranked #2 of 10 Inverness B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 August 2016

Convenient for hiking and exploring -- that is, if you can tear yourself away from the lovely cottage with a view and garden with so many interesting specimen plants. Highly, highly recommended, and we will dream of returning!

Thank you!! We enjoyed your review and also the very nice entry you wrote in our guest book. It is especially noteworthy that you are a Level 4 TA Contributor (44+ reviews) and speak so highly of our Inverness cottage!

We also appreciate that you took the time to send back one of our dining table napkins!!, which probably got mixed with your luggage....very well done in the "extra effort" category! We hope to see you again; you took very good care of our cottage.

Sincerely, Patsy and Phil

One always takes chances when booking sight unseen online. What a treasure! The cottage is gorgeous, the garden stunning and the hospitality was perfect. It is also perfectly placed to enjoy all of Point Reyes National Seashore.

One of the best experiences we have had traveling. The owners were extremely helpful, and the cottage was amazing and immaculate. The beautiful gardens provided a secluded and tranquil setting. This is a special place.

It's rare that our high expectations are met, but they were exceeded in this lovely, large cottage where my wife and I (with our teenage son who slept comfortably on the pull-out couch, aero bed), spent two lovely days hiking, sightseeing and exploring the Point Reyes rugged coast, lighthouse, local wildlife, beaches and small towns.

It's a place we would want to return to again and again as it offers everything we could want (beauty, comfort, quiet, conveniences, ease of use, prime location) and lovely extras like a pagoda style outdoor bath with view of the bay and a redwood tree, along with a large, clean private deck for dining and relaxation. On a clear night the stars are viewable through the arched and sun Windows. And the gardens surrounding the cottage are exquisite.

Phil was an extraordinarily accommodating host who welcomed us upon our arrival and provided us valuable touring suggestions.

We appreciate Phil and Patsy's hospitality and the care in which they offer and maintain this delightful rental.

My husband and I love the Inverness Secret Garden Cottage. This was our second visit and we will surely return. A lovely cottage that is well appointed, with a great deck tucked away in amazing gardens. Close to fantastic hiking in Point Reyes, the delicious Osteria Stellina restaurant in Point Reyes Station, and of course Cowgirl Creamery! Great getaway that is close to home (Oakland, CA). Thanks, Phil and Patsy, for another great stay!
