By the Sea: Wee Housie, Inverness, California
This 800 square ft. redwood 1917 cabin is virtually unchanged from its original plan, and is a rare example of an “unimproved” all-redwood cabin/small house in the charming village of Inverness, nestled between Tomales Bay and Point Reyes National Park. It has been gently restored into a romantic rustic cabin, and retains all the original redwood planking, half doors, wobbly glass in the windows, and the open fireplace (wood provided!)
There is a master bedroom with canopied queen bed, and a closed-in sleeping porch with 2 singles that can be converted to a king. There is one bathroom with tub/shower and an outside shower for the adventurous.
Hot water is now on-demand and, in addition to the fireplace, we have added forced-air heating to take the chill off when you arrive and are waiting for the (very efficient) traditional fireplace to warm the heart of the cabin.
The cabin is ideally located 5 minutes from Inverness village center and the spectacular beaches of Tomales Bay State Park.
10 minute drive to the town of Point Reyes Station, the epicenter of exceptional California organic food, wine, cheese and restaurants; Cow Girl Creamery, Hog Island Oysters, Marin Sun Farms, Osteria Stellina etc. Live music at the Dance Palace.
San Francisco and Wine Country are a little over an hour away by car.
The owner is an architectural photographer, and his architect clients who have seen the cabin have been stunned by its charm and authenticity.
The sailboat in the photos will be available to qualified people for charter on Tomales Bay, a 5 minute walk from the house. She is an English design from 1911 and was shipped over here.
