Located one mile south of Inverness and near the Point Reyes National Seashore,
Marsh Cottage has been a favorite retreat since 1985 for those who prefer the comforts of having
their own completely equipped cabin as their home-away.
Ideally suited for couples, the cottage sits on a salt/freshwater marsh at the southern end of the bay; local wildlife and flora create a unique and magical setting that enhances guests’ experience of the Point Reyes area in all its seasons.
The covered porch and marsh deck (and bed!) look out across the cattails and beyond the bay to the hills surrounding Black Mountain – a view especially welcome on rainy days with a cozy fire and a good book. It has an equipped kitchen and full bath, queen bed, desk and sitting area, propane fireplace, guidebooks & maps, sound-system, free WiFi, daypack, board games, even binoculars.
It’s a perfect base from which to explore spectacular Point Reyes National Seashore, with its miles of trails in every type of scenic terrain, prolific wildlife, private coves and dramatic beaches– all accessible by car, foot, bicycle, kayak or even horseback. Two historic villages close by, the enchanting Inverness and classically western Point Reyes Station both host a variety of good restaurants and shops both practical and unique. Begin your adventures at the Bear Valley Visitors Center, or just use one of the many guidebooks in the cottage, for a day of hiking, tidepooling, birding, picnicking, swimming, exploring hillsides of wildflowers, or, like many guests, just linger in the peaceful comfort of Marsh Cottage.
