A beautiful rainy winter stay here at the Colby House. This is true classic Inverness experience where you get to go back in time and live a magical life with family or friends. We are definitely coming back! Thank you.

Beautiful weather, charming cabin, excellent location. We adored Colby house. The camp-like atmosphere was perfect for our family. We played loads of tennis, beach and yard football, shucked too many oysters, and would absolutely go back. Great for families and friends who get along well and love the outdoors. Dogs love it too! Zoomies of happiness everyday! Thank you Kerry for sharing this gem with us!

On the one hand, this is a pretty cool property. However, for the price, I felt this property was just not worth the money. It needs a ton of maintenance and just presents as old and run down. I've stayed at older properties which have been maintained nicely. The bedroom and bathroom layout is very strange and not private, the kitchen is very small. The best room was the large living room off the kitchen. It was difficult to make a fire as there was kindling and no ax to split the wood. The room over the garage was good, but not very clean. I would recommend the owners refurbish and fix everything before renting it out. I won't be coming back anytime soon. The biggest positive was we did enjoy the tennis court and our dog was happy chasing after his frisbee in the large yard.

We have been going to the Colby House for many years - each summer for a family get together. No TV!!!! Cabin-style rooms!!! Large lovely porch and large dining table that accommodates our crew. A huge fenced in yard where our grandkids can run freely and a tennis court to boot. Plus the pleasant weather in Pt. Reyes. We have enjoyed so many great times at this wonderful spot. However, we were disappointed this past June on our trip because the conditions in the kitchen have deteriorated. The faucet leaked. There was chauking around the sink that was peeling off and mold growing all around the rim of the sink. The fixture in the bathroom sink is way too large for the size of the old sink so it is tricky not to spill water on the floor when using it. We hope the owners will attend to these issues - especially in the kitchen. Putting in a new counter and sink would really make it a more appetizing place to prepare meals. We still had a great time and hope the upkeep issues can be attended to in the near future.

Would be a great place for a family with kids; birding was wonderful; easy access to Point Reyes Seashore, birds, whales, elk, coyotes, and other creatures. For a group with couples there was a lack of privacy, and it was more rustic than we had expected from the online profile.

Colby House is the type of getaway that one rarely finds. Many bedrooms (there were nine of us), a large family room with a classic and grand stone fireplace, well equipped kitchen, your own tennis court, a ping pong table, a large yard that is fenced in, and dozens of other games for children and adults. You’re also near the water with parks and public beaches. It is old but that is part of its charm. They just don’t build them like that anymore. We hope to get back there next year.

A true calm in the woods just above the wee town of Inverness and Tamales Bay. All a very short walk away. The "camp" is quiet and the grounds spacious. Lots of board games. A delightful tennis court and a brand new ping pong table in the garage. And then of course it sits at the entrance of Point Reyes National Seashore which is one of the treasured spots on the planet earth. We cooked and played and really "got away".

Esta propiedad es maravillosa, incluso en invierno, sentarse en frente de la chimenea y tomar te caliente en la sala o jugar uno de los varios juegos de mesa que hay en la casa es la mejor manera de pasar un buen tiempo en familia o con amigos. Cada vez que voy a este lugar juego tennis, y voy a caminar alrededor. Hay un cafe muy lindo cerca de la propiedad donde se puede disfrutar de la vista del lago. Recomiendo este lugar y los invito a que disfrutes de las maravillosas y magicas ventajas que provee. Ana Barrera
