We recently stayed in the Little Room, having previously stayed in The Cottage, which is now unavailable. We found the room just as advertised; a cozy room accessed by its own entrance, with double bed, private bath and small garden. Knob Hill is located on a dead-end street, far enough off Hwy. 1 to provide plenty of peace & quiet.... More

All in all our stay here was fine. The little room was clean and warm. We just stayed one night before moving on up the coast. That being said, I would not stay there again and would not recommend it. Janet was not friendly in our correspondence and gave very short answers both on the phone and in email. There... More

Thank you for your comments. I'm so sorry we didn't meet. I tend not to bother people, since most of my clients come for the peace and quiet that my place offers, in order to truly enjoy our beautiful Point Reyes National Seashore. However, I am always on the property to answer any questions and to give advice as needed.... More

If you are looking for a no frills, peace and tranquility place to stay while visiting Pt Reyes than this is the place for you. Janet was very nice and accommodating, asking us almost daily if there was anything we needed. We enjoyed the kitchenette with little fridge, dishes available and some biodegradable soap and dish tray under the bathroom... More

Cozy, quiet, close to nature. Simple, thoughtful, comfortable rooms, lovely views to Inverness Ridge across ravine from cottage or master room, owls hooting at night, stars aplenty, low key, short trail downhill to town, privacy. Peaceful.

I loved Knob Hill, it's walking distance to town, basic amenities were provided and the "quiet" was perfect. The host was kind enough to provide lists of places to go and have Thanksgiving dinner, very helpful advice... I did see the dog, who was very friendly. For the price charged it's more than one would expect considering Point Reyes is... More

I've stayed at Knob Hill several times, and have been in all three of her rooms. They are all different, but all cozy and simple, the way Point Reyes is. It's friendly and casual, and if she is not there, Janet will leave instructions for you on the door. I personally like the cottage the best, having a real county... More

We loved the cottage - it was cozy, private, sunny, and well appointed. Quite a bargain. Janet was more than helpful with directions, suggestions, even reservations. It was a short walk to the town, easy to get to the National Seashore.

After marathon work schedules and a four-day conference in San Francisco, my husband and I looked forward to a 4-night stay in Point Reyes where we could unwind and relax. Based on the features listed on its website, we selected Knob Hill's master suite as our vacation "home". Upon arrival, we found a note on the front door directing us... More

I am so sorry that the Master Suite was not what you had expected. If you had knocked on my front door (this was the one which had the note which directed you to the Suite), I would have given you a land line, hair dryer and anything else you needed. Or.... on hearing of your concerns, I would have... More
