OUR BEACH COTTAGE 'Helen's Hideaway' is a wonderful setting for a family or friends vacation. This is a simple and well-maintained beach cottage, located right on Tomales Bay. Helen's is our family cottage that we enjoy sharing for you.
WE ARE HAPPY TO LET YOU KNOW THAT WE HAVE IMPROVED OUR COTTAGE AS OF OCTOBER 1ST -- NEW WINDOW COVERINGS, UPGRADED MATTRESSES, IMPROVED UPSTAIRS BATHROOM … A LITTLE MORE TLC!!
WE HAVE A NEW DOCK -- rebuilt and ready for fishing or just contemplating the beauty of the bay!
OUR FRONT GARDEN IS SURROUNDED BY A SECURE FENCE -- a lovely and private place to read the morning newspaper or surf the web. A charcoal grill invites you to barbecue local fish, fresh veggies from Point Reyes or a good local piece of meat.
OUR INTERNET ACCESS IS EXCELLENT AND OUR FLAT SCREEN TV with Sony Entertainment Network, Netflix and connection for your laptop (pc) can connect you to the outer world.
The center of this cottage is a large living room with floor to ceiling windows overlooking Tomales Bay. You can experience the Bay from anywhere on the first floor. It's a great place to watch wildlife while you have an intimate or family meal, read a novel in front of the fire, or just sit and relax.
The house has a master bedroom downstairs with an adjoining bathroom with shower. Upstairs has 2 bedroom, one with a queen size bed and one with twin beds. There is a bathroom on the second floor, with a tub and overhead shower.
The house is surrounded by a deck and has a dock that reaches out into the bay. It's a perfect place to watch the sunset, sip a glass of wine and just enjoy the bliss of beautiful Tomales Bay.
The house is walking distance to the Tony's Seafood Restaurant, The Marshall Store, kayaking, and Hog Island Oysters. Enjoy day trips to Point Reyes Seashore, the Russian River, local wineries, whale watching, etc. We are very well located to take advantage of all the West Marin has to offer!
If you are not up for driving around, its a great place to sit in front of a roaring fire with friends and loved ones. We have a collection of old DVD and videos and a paperback library. If you like to fish, you can throw a line out from the deck or the pier. Digging clams under the house is another afternoon activity. Small charcoal barbecue available to cook your catch!
This is not an elegant house, but comfortable, family-friendly and situated in the midst of spectacular beauty. If you are looking for "hotel perfect" this is not the house for you. We welcome you to share our family space and to live in it as though it were your own home.
