We have stayed at Helen's House and the Glass House many times over years. We've always had a wonderful time. We'll be back!

Listen up VRBO what my wife and I do, while we are seeking a peaceful, well planned weekend to celebrate our 30th Wedding anniversary, is our personal business.

We hiked Bear Valley and Muddy Hollow while comfortably lodging at our favorite delightful location next to a Tomales Bay State Park. We cooked our own meals mostly in the well equipped kitchen, played scrabble evenings with excellent light and a forest view from the dining area, read and lounged on the voluminous couches and again at night read a bit in bed with great lighting and a glorious full moon view! Outside I recorded great horned owls,, spotted towhees and California towhees first morning on Merlin and in the afternoon viewed two new warblers and a sweet nuthatch in the birdbath from the kitchen. We love this place!

The house is cozy with dark wood paneling but large windows to take in the view of the carefully landscaped garden and Tomales Bay beyond (fog permitting). It's very quiet and private, with easy access to some of the most scenic locations at Point Reyes National Seashore and a short drive into town for shopping or dining. We plan to return.

Great location, amazing view, and fabulous garden. Well stocked kitchen. Minimal soap and shampoo in the bathroom. Unclear why half bath was locked and not available for use. A few more amenities would be nice.

Our family of four was looking to stay at a peaceful getaway for a weekend not too far from San Francisco. This place was perfect! It had everything we needed to unplug and reconnect as a family. We also did some nearby sightseeing during our brief stay. Barbie and Jeff are terrific hosts. I hope they will have us again sometime. :-)

Our relaxing 3 day stay at Helen's House came at a perfect time of year. The view of Tomales Bay, the morning fog, lovely gardens and the location right inside Tomales Bay State Park made the house site extra special. The comfortable home was well stocked with plenty of comfortable seating, lots of kitchen tools, a nice guidebook selection and plenty of extra bedding. Hikes were filled with beautiful views, the scent of wildflowers and lots of wildlife. A lovely nearby grocery store and other mealtime options helped round out the stay. Would love to return!
