We really enjoyed our stay in the Grandview Suite at the Black Heron Inn. Clean and comfortable accommodation and very well provisioned. This property adjoins protected wetlands and has a wonderful view of the wildflowers, rolling hills and lagoon. Our unit had a sunny private deck with Adirondack chairs, an expansive wet bar with refrigerator (pre-stocked with breakfast items), a sitting area below and a bedroom loft with a comfortable king-sized bed. One caveat -- if you have any difficulty with stairs, you should reserve one of the two lower units instead since the bathroom and bedroom are located on different levels.
One of the nicest things about the inn is the privacy and quiet, yet you're only 5 minutes from Point Reyes Station. If you go, make sure to reserve a table at Osteria Stellina for dinner. It has the best local food.
The binoculars, selection of books and dvds, bathroom amenities and full-sized coffeemaker were definite pluses.
