Last weekend the weather reports were predicting 90-95 degree temps for Saturday and Sunday. I told Mountain Man that we needed to get away, perhaps to the breezy Pacific ocean.
We batted around ideas. San Francisco is usually a lot cooler, but most of the hotels were booked due to the Final Races of the America’s Cup starting last weekend.
We remembered going away to Point Reyes seven years ago for a getaway, and decided this would be perfect for us and our three adventurous kiddos.
So, we booked a cottage at the Cottages at Point Reyes Seashore for Saturday night and headed over to cooler lands after all three soccer games were complete Saturday morning.
Cottages at Point Reyes Seashore used to be called Inverness Valley Inn. The new name was recently implemented when new owners took over earlier this year. The owners are doing a Wonderful job with the Inn. Everything was in great condition. This a is a perfect spot for a couples getaway, family getaway or corporate retreat. So serene and away from it all. Yet, so close to many fun activities.
After arriving to Inverness and checking into the Inn, we drove about 5 miles to North Beach, and were mesmerized by the cool breezes and rough waves of the Pacific. It was perfect. The breeze made the 60 mile trip totally worth it.
Here’s a few photos from our journey….
Photos of Cottages at Point Reyes are below. This is a beautiful 15 acre property surrounded by Redwood trees. While walking around the trails on the property, there is a canopy of beautiful trees shading you. You really feel like you’re getting away from it all. There is also a pool and hot tub, and tennis courts on the property. We ALL loved it here and will definitely return soon.
Cottages at Point Reyes Seashore is directly across the street from Chicken Ranch Beach, a gorgeous setting on the peaceful Tomales Bay.
On Sunday morning, we headed out to the Lighthouse at Point Reyes. Quite Amazing. The fog in the morning is dense and chilly (loved it).
The Pacific Ocean never looked so beautiful. These are photos from North Beach in the Point Reyes National Seashore stretch of beaches.
