Getting AroundYou will need your own transportation Other Things to NoteI'm thinking this verbatim review from another website we advertise on will give you the best idea of what you're in for when you stay here: We were greeted by an excellent host in Rob. He took the time to walk us through the ins and outs of the house and sure enough within the first 10mins he pointed out some river otters sunning themselves on the boat landing pad beneath our stunning deck. The house is exactly what the doctor ordered if you are looking for a getaway of peace and quiet. The house is well equipped with all the necessary items to hunker down and take in the amazing views. We grilled every night and ate breakfast every morning on the (URL HIDDEN) need to spend time inside other than for sleeping. The house is ideally located for quick day trips to Pt. Reyes Station, Pt. Reyes National Seashore and the quaint town of Inverness. One last thing...pretty great to take a soak in the hot tub after a long day of hiking. If you want quiet and views, this is the place. Kevin
