    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!

    The Inverness Secret Garden Cottage is Delightful, Private, Quiet and Tranquil. The Surrounding Private Garden is Colorful and Inviting. The Location is Perfect for Visiting the Point Reyes National Seashore. The Owners were Gracious and Helpful. A Memorable - Joyous Experience. Big Termite

    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!More
