The wild Northern California coast mingles effortlessly with Japanese simplicity in this Inverness bed and breakfast.
The focus here is on an uncluttered peace, not striving toward anything, yet calling your attention to the inherent beauty of small details. The ikebana, the hand carved wood panels, the handmade ceramic tea cups that fit so perfectly in the hand. And of course, always, the forest.
This is an ideal location for Forest Therapy, sometimes called forest bathing — supporting the health of the body and mind by being fully and quietly present in nature.
The property is up in the treetops of Inverness, and at the end of where people live and the nature preserve begins. You’ll be close to local restaurants, Tomales Bay is just down the road and all the wild, pristine beaches and hiking trails of Point Reyes National Seashore are at your fingertips.
And after a day of exploring, you return to the deep serenity and immersion in the forest that are the signature features of Osprey Peak.
Rooms are comfortable and designed to merge the cozy inside with the forest outside. The two main floor rooms have soaring wood ceilings and a towering window that looks out onto a sentinel tree, and beyond. The downstairs room has a sliding glass door that opens onto a stand of swaying bamboo and a private deck.
