Gorgeous country views, super comfy beds, plenty of space and tons of privacy.

Sound like your kinda Point Reyes getaway? 

We think so…and so do our guests! Our cottages have private decks, patios and yards, kitchens with gas ranges for those times you don’t want the bother of walking two minutes to one of our amazing neighborhood restaurants — and classic West Marin country views of horses grazing on pasture against the backdrop of Inverness Ridge. 

We’re set on a peaceful country acre studded with flower gardens, towering eucalyptus trees and a contemporary sculpture garden with installations by well known artists.

“Explore the Point Reyes National Seashore by day and relax into your farmstead cottage at Olema Cottages…”

Cottage Living Magazine

Where the heck is Olema?

If you’ve been to Point Reyes before, you’ve probably driven right through the historic, tiny village of Olema — known as the gateway to the Point Reyes National Seashore. We’re 1/2 mile from the park’s entrance, a scenic hour’s drive north of San Francisco and south west of Napa + Sonoma wine country. 

We’ve got two fabulous restaurants right next door and all the food, galleries and live music of Point Reyes Station are five minutes up the road.

It’s beautiful here, and more relaxing than you can imagine. Our vacation cottages are quiet and peaceful and sooo comfortable. You won’t want to leave!

Your private entrance for your morning beach walk. You’ll probably have the entire beach to yourself so just get up and go. Because when is the last time you regretted a morning walk?
