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!

This was our third visit to one of our favorite places to stay. This is a very private and comfortable cottage in the midst of a beautiful garden. There are several fountains, and the running water adds to the peacefulness. There is also a bathhouse with a cast iron tub and a view through the trees to Tomales Bay. The cottage always feels like home to us. As I’ve said in other reviews, the atmosphere is so relaxing that it’s a bit hard to leave for all there is to do in and around Point Reyes National Park, but we love the park, as well. We stayed over Memorial weekend, so our goal was to avoid the crowds, and by-and-large, we were successful. Our hikes were to places we hadn’t been before, and they were fascinating for their display of the diversity of the Point Reyes area. Our ventures into Point Reyes Station were our only encounters with crowds, but it was worth it for a visit to the local grocery store and a late lunch at Osteria Stellina, our favorite restaurant there.

We are always looking for reasons and ways to get back to this wonderful place.
