Welcome to Olema Cottages. Enjoy your weekend getaway or extended stay in your own private, spacious cottage near The Point Reyes National Seashore Park entrance—an hour north of San Francisco and an hour south of Napa and Sonoma wine country.


Here’s what you’ll love about your stay at Olema Cottages…

The best location

Your vacation rental cottage, nestled in the town of Olema, is just 1/2 mile from the Point Reyes National Seashore park entrance. You’ll have convenient access to all the area’s best beaches, hiking, cycling, kayaking, whale watching, birding, dining and shopping. We are easy to get to and easy to find your way home to after a day of exploring. 

For those times you don’t feel like getting in your car, we are just minutes walking distance from two excellent restaurants and wine bars, a market and a deli. 

Each cottage comes with an extensive guide to local restaurants and activities so you can plan your perfect getaway each day and then return and unwind with a sunset view from your own deck, porch, or patio.

Privacy and space

You’ll have privacy and independence in your own comfortable, well-appointed one-bedroom cottage or spacious private-entry guestroom in the renovated 1892 farm house. Don’t come out to this wide open country setting just to be crowded into a small room, or bump into other guests! Our cottages and rooms are situated to give you space to really relax, and privacy to enjoy your vacation however you like. 


We’ve put a great deal of thought and care into making your stay comfortable. That means you’ll have the comforts of home as you enjoy the incredible peace and natural beauty of Point Reyes. Country charm is one thing, but no one wants to sleep in a “rustic” bed or wish for better towels or linens. Sure, you can light up the wood burning stove because it’s fun and romantic, but cottages have modern heating systems to make sure it’s a choice and not a necessity. Our beds are comfortable, our towels are plentiful and luxurious…we’ve taken care of the details so you can focus on enjoying your time away without compromises.

A peaceful, garden oasis setting awaits you at your home-away-from-home in Point Reyes. Whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway or a home base for outdoor activities, Olema Cottages is the perfect choice for lodging on the Point Reyes Peninsula.

Extended stays

Looking for more than a weekend city break? Our cottages are comfortable and well appointed, making them ideal for longer stays. We offer discounts on stays of 5 or more nights, weekly rates, monthly rates and we charge no cleaning fees and no security deposits. Even if you have to pop back for the odd meeting, or to take care of some details at home, we are only an hour from San Francisco. This is truly the most convenient location to take a long break, a real retreat. You’ll feel a world away, while everything you need is within reach.
