Water Eden Cottage is a beautiful artfully designed waterfront studio cottage surrounded by gardens & nature's bountiful beauty and variety. The view from this retreat is of the glistening water of Tomales Bay to the sandy beaches and
tree-adorned hills of spectacular Point Reyes National Park.

Be nourished by the beauty, sea life, and ever-changing water and skies of pristine Tomales Bay. The cottage is built at this beautiful bay with a water-view 8’ floor-to-ceiling window & sliding glass door. Cozily enjoy wind and waves traversing the bay. Watch dancing sunlight sparkle on the water. Your private lush garden and patio under the apple tree is complete with a bench and chairs.
Free wireless in the cottage, on the deck, in the garden and patio.

When you walk through the gate, you are greeted by cheerful flowers, picturesque trees, and stone sculptures that welcome you to the private patio and cottage entrance. At the patio a gate opens to the 14' deep waterfront deck and glistening water that flows underneath and to the opposite shore of Tomales Bay. Charming, peaceful and magical as morning lifts revealing an unforgettable view of the National Park... as the tide rhythmically flows in and out offering music of lapping the shore and pilings… as the sea birds call out and clouds pass over to an ever-changing vista of sky and water.

Enter the artfully designed, light-filled studio cottage that opens to the patio and the deck and find you are still surrounded by natural beauty. An 8' sliding glass door looks out to deck and water, large windows frame lovely views of the trees and surrounding gardens everywhere you look. The complete kitchen offers a delightful view of gardens through a porthole window.

The bathroom offers an experience of luxuriating in art and beauty… exquisite tile work, a charming copper bowl sink set atop a beautiful redwood burl base, an 8 jet Jacuzzi tub with a large window looking out at the private garden and cliff top with sky beyond. It's a WOW!

Water Eden cottage is furnished with a comfortable queen Murphy bed and comfortable full size futon couch. Both the Murphy bed and dining table look out on the water. There are enticing books for a quiet, inspiring read about local history and places to visit. Sit on the deck, climb down to the rocky beach at low tide (access is shared), or enjoy gazing at the water in comfort in all kinds of weather from inside the cottage or out. If you gaze long enough, you'll notice a seal or otter swimming by. You may see kayaks from the near-by concession paddling across to the beaches on the far shore or an occasional oyster boat pass by. At various times of the year the Bay teems with sea birds, schools of herring, salmon, dolphin and feasting seals. If you’re lucky sea otters, a great blue heron or snowy white egret may invite themselves onto the deck.

Water Eden Cottage is an incredible and inspiring setting for the thinker, writer or painter part of us all. This is the perfect setting for when you long to slow down, open yourself and be nourished and restored in a quiet, serene place overflowing with nature's magic. It’s ideal for a secluded retreat, for just getting away from the fast pace and noise of 21st century life. This is a place to ponder what's really important, or for a couple wanting to enjoy and connect with each other in a quiet, nourishing and romantic space.

Should you want to pull yourself away and enjoy a walk, you can wander the old fashioned Marshall Boat Works, enjoy delicious sandwiches and decadently irresistible barbecued oysters at the Marshall Store overlooking the water, chow down at Tony's Seafood or walk the other way to the lively and delicious happening at the Hog Island Oyster Company.

If you can stand leaving even longer, there are great beaches and hiking trails in Point Reyes National Park. You might enjoy a walk on its endless miles of white sand beaches or gazing upon the abundant wildlife: the herd of albino deer, Thule elk, nesting American Bald Eagles, unbelievable variety of plants and ancient redwoods, or, visit the award winning Visitor Center and carefully restored Native American Village, Kule Loklo.
Take a short drive (30 minutes) and you can walk Dillon Beach and buy fresh crab from the boats of Bodega Bay. Just 15 minutes south is Point Reyes Station, then Inverness and Olema all of which offer a variety of fine restaurants, galleries and shops to explore, and great entertainment as well. A twenty minute drive North on Highway 1 brings you to Freestone and the Osmosis Spa, offering enzyme baths in a Japanese garden setting. Out-of-this world bakeries can be found in Point Reyes Station, Tomales and Freestone.

It’s a short walk to the Hog Island Oyster Co., Tony's Seafood and Marshall Store & Boatworks (great fun when herring are in season). Each serves decadently delicious locally grown oysters (my favorites are the barbecued and Rockefeller... mmm!). Great restaurants and bars, some with music, are nearby in Point Reyes Station, Olema, and Inverness. Have a ball at the Dance Palace in Point Reyes Station. You’ll find delicious bakeries in Pt. Reyes Station, Tomales (15 min), and Freestone (25 min).

This is a small studio cottage, which can comfortably sleep 4. If you're on a budget, you'll find it's the best bargain on the Tomales Bay waterfront.
Optional second unit is a complete private house with its own kitchen & features a hot tub in the garden, stream with waterfall and pond. Both units together have 2 hot tubs, 2 bathrooms and sleep 8. See our listing for Water Eden HOUSE
Our manager is available at all times to answer questions and is a short distance away in case of a problem or emergency.
