Inverness Secret Garden Cottage
Ranked #2 of 10 Inverness B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 November 2016

Wonderful cottage for a couple or 3 people. Kitchen means you don't have to go to restaurant. Beautiful views, trails from the front door. Owner helpful. Treat it gently, please! We want to return.

Space stove keeps you warm. Enjoyed the outdoor bath house!

Room Tip: The room is wonderful.

The Cottage is delightful incl. continental breakfast and nice views. We greatly enjoyed the fabulous gardens in which we could hike thru and observe and take pictures of so many varieties of beautiful plants and trees.

Room Tip: outdoor bathtub; large deck from which the night sky is visible..

We're glad you enjoyed the gardens....we spend most of our time, rain or shine, keeping things looking good! Many of the original 60 year old specimen plants and trees have come from the SF Botanical garden. We have temperate rain forest plants from around the world and are fortunate that Inverness is the perfect place for them. We look forward to your return visit.

I have stayed here several times over the years, and every single time have had a wonderful experience. Stepping inside the garden gate at the entrance feels immediately peaceful and relaxing.The setting is completely private, surrounded by a beautiful garden. There is a view of Tomales Bay from the cottage, a soaking tub up a garden path, and a sunny deck on which to have morning coffee, or a glass of wine at the end of day after hiking, biking or kayaking in the area. The cottage is immaculately clean, uncluttered, and comfortable. The owners have thought of everything...organic breakfast items in the refrigerator, fluffy robes, restaurant suggestions, trail maps, etc. Staying here is my all time favorite getaway!

Room Tip: This is a very spacious, well designed cottage with an open floor plan, best for couple or a single...

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
