About 23075 State Route 1

This waterfront cottage sits on the shore of Tomales Bay, just down from the historic Nick's Cove restaurant. From this cozy retreat you can enjoy gorgeous, ever-changing water views including the pristine hills of the Point Reyes National Seashore and Hog Island. This peaceful getaway is just a stone's throw from top dining and entertainment. Park your car and relax by the fire, or explore nearby trails and waterways. This is the life.

Point Reyes National Seashore
The cottage looks across Tomales Bay to the Point Reyes National Seashore, a vast protected wilderness area established by John F. Kennedy in 1962. The natural beauty brings a feeling of harmony with the wild that can balance the energy of an urban lifestyle. When you’re at Angel Rock, inspiring Point Reyes attractions like Wildcat Beach, Alamere Falls and the famous 1870 Point Reyes Lighthouse are only a short drive away.

Activities in Point Reyes
Over 150 miles of hiking trails traverse a variety of terrain across the Point Reyes area. Because of the many estuaries, there are miles of calm waters to explore by kayak and canoe. And of course all that water attracts birdlife, so bird watching is a popular activity. Plenty of other wildlife roams the hillsides too, including herds of elk. The tule elk are a subspecies found only in California… in the Owens and San Joaquin Valleys, and on Point Reyes.

Whale Watching in Point Reyes
The areas around Chimney Rock and the Point Reyes Lighthouse offer some of the best whale watching in the state. Here at Point Reyes National Seashore the peak of the southern migration usually occurs in mid-January and that of the northern migration in mid-March.

Nick’s Cove
One of the most scenic drives in West Marin is along east shore of Tomales Bay to the little village at Nick’s Cove. In the fall you may witness the migration one of the many species of birds heading south for the winter. Fishing boats, sailboats are a common site on the pristine waters of the bay and so are the magnificent sunsets.

Nick’s Cove is one of the last remaining historic settlements catering to the early California tourist trade on the beautiful Tomales Bay coastland. It’s served as a depot for tourism, local fishermen and agricultural operations throughout its history.

“Nick’s is a very special place that honors and respects the area, giving visitors a glimmer of an agrarian life that’s so near but really so far from the city consciousness. It seems impossible to believe it’s still in the 415 area code.”

–Michael Bauer, SF Chronicle
