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!

One always takes chances when booking sight unseen online. What a treasure! The cottage is gorgeous, the garden stunning and the hospitality was perfect. It is also perfectly placed to enjoy all of Point Reyes National Seashore.

One of the best experiences we have had traveling. The owners were extremely helpful, and the cottage was amazing and immaculate. The beautiful gardens provided a secluded and tranquil setting. This is a special place.

It's rare that our high expectations are met, but they were exceeded in this lovely, large cottage where my wife and I (with our teenage son who slept comfortably on the pull-out couch, aero bed), spent two lovely days hiking, sightseeing and exploring the Point Reyes rugged coast, lighthouse, local wildlife, beaches and small towns. It's a place we would... More

My husband and I love the Inverness Secret Garden Cottage. This was our second visit and we will surely return. A lovely cottage that is well appointed, with a great deck tucked away in amazing gardens. Close to fantastic hiking in Point Reyes, the delicious Osteria Stellina restaurant in Point Reyes Station, and of course Cowgirl Creamery! Great getaway that... More

This was our third visit to one of our favorite places to stay. This is a very private and comfortable cottage in the midst of a beautiful garden. There are several fountains, and the running water adds to the peacefulness. There is also a bathhouse with a cast iron tub and a view through the trees to Tomales Bay. The... More

75 reviews so far and every one five star... well here's one more. The place is beautifully designed, appointed, and kept up in every way. The location to the parks, ocean, bay and hiking is as central as you can get. And the gardens... its like a professional botanical garden, with all sorts of interesting species showcased among walking paths... More

I just stayed at the Inverness Secret Garden Cottage a few days ago and loved every minute of my woodsy, garden-y stay. It was so private and peaceful and I got in such a good amount of time reading my novel and then walking the lush Inverness ridge trails. The cottage is warm and inviting, and all was pretty and...

Truly a magical place to spend a weekend. Patsy and Phil have created a perfect cottage and provide everything you need to get away and enjoy all that makes Pt. Reyes the special place it is.
