About Lori

Our family, originally from the Midwest, now calls California home. We share a love for adventure, nature, good food, and relaxation. We welcome you and hope you enjoy this restorative, magical slice of Northern California.

Lori purchased this house in 2015

Why Lori chose Marshall

We fell in love with Tomales Bay on our first visit - the stunning views, multitude of outdoor activities, and exquisite local food and wine - it's the best of what Northern California has to offer.

What makes this house unique

One can spend the day mesmerized by the waves on the bay, and the options for adventurous souls are endless. The famous Hog Island Oyster Co., Marshall Store and Blue Waters Kayaking are only steps from our front door. Beautiful redwood forests and recreation in the Russian River Valley lie to the North, the world-renowned wine regions of Sonoma and Napa to the East, San Francisco to the South, and the untouched natural beauty of the Point Reyes National Seashore to the West.

Wonderful retreat on Tomales Bay

  • 5 of 5

For 11 years we have visited this gem of a place and in many ways feel like Sea Mist is our home away from home, at least for a few days in July. the location is outstanding, being on the bay is a huge treat and incredibly relaxing. You'll experience all kinds of lovely nature, exceptional views, sunsets and have some of the best night sleeps ever. The property is well appointed with everything you could want to a true get away in this lovely part of Northern CA. The proximity to the Point Reyes national park is excellent, the local oyster places divine and the many choices for hiking, wine tasting, seeing charming local towns or just counting the cows, horses, peacocks, pelicans, seagulls, deer, etc. there is something for everyone here! We can't wait to return.

Fun place for a couple. Great location for accessing Point Reyes, Inverness, and beaches.

  • 4 of 5

Very simple and clean. A little rough around the edges, but very livable. Locks on doors require lifting and shoving. Slide bolts don't match up to holes. Landscaping has deteriorated due to lack of water. Surprising since unit #2 has beautiful roses, etc. Anyway, a great value.

Charming Studio

  • 5 of 5

This lovely cottage studio has everything one would need for a quiet getaway. The views were inspiring and we even caught a glimpse of a sea lion and sting ray from the deck. We’ll forever have fond memories of watching the sun set across the bay. A true hidden gem. I would absolutely return!

Wonderful west view cottage over Tomales Bay at Marshall

  • 5 of 5

This is a very attractive cottage which is setup for a single person or a couple. We saw a photo that featured this cottage on the cover of Coastal Living magazine! It is quite photogenic! It looks exactly like the photos!! Nice wood stove was well used each night after sunset. We stayed three nights and drove north to Sea Ranch one day and another day trip to Point Reyes peninsula where we saw Elephant Seals, a coyote, Tule Elk and plenty of happy dairy and beef cows. The views at Point Reyes are some of the best Coastal views in California. Great weather too. We ate in the area and had wonderful breakfasts we made at the cottage before leaving for the day. Coffee on the deck and wine and cheese at night was a special memory. We can say that you will not be disappointed in staying at this cottage over the Bay. We will be back and refer our friends. We came from Sacramento in just a couple hours and very lovely drive on Petaluma Marshall Road. Check it out and have fun!

Always the best

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Seamist 1 and 11 for more than 20 years. We have celebrated many good times there.

The new owners have really spruced it up and have wonderful coffee, spices and extras.

The sunsets are to die for. The oysters are fabulous. The view from Seamist 11 is so relaxing. Like you are on a boat and the waves lapping put you to sleep.

We come for a week once a year and really enjoy every minute of our time at Seamist.
