“A Treetop Fantasy” Time Magazine

“Blackthorne floats among the treetops like a great ship” AAA's VIA magazine

Would you like your vacation or corporate retreat to be in a one-of-a-kind, totally unique home resembling a giant elegant tree house that Sunset magazine called “A carpenter’s fantasy”?

[Please Note: The owner also purchased the beautiful 1-bedroom cabin next door. For guests that want to have 7 bedrooms and 7 baths, you can simply add $250 per night (plus tax and cleaning) to your bill, and rent “The Cabin” as well. Two pictures of The Cabin are included on this page, or go to Home Away 3831658 or VRBO 3831658ha to see many pictures.]

The Blackthorne (formerly the Blackthorne Inn) is a 6 bedroom 5.5 bath totally private 3200 square foot home resembling a giant, elegant tree house with 3500 square feet of decking adjacent to a national park (The Point Reyes National Seashore) yet centrally located only 1.4 miles from the town of Point Reyes with its fine dining and shops, 2.5 miles from the village of Inverness, minutes from world class ocean beaches and Tomales Bay State Park swimming beaches, less than a mile from the Park’s headquarters with endless hiking trails and less than one hour from San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge and the Napa/Sonoma wine country.

“The Blackthorne, about an hour north of San Francisco, looks as if it were built by mad King Ludwig working in wood.” The Dallas Morning News

General Description: This 4-story home sits on a private 3 acres that feels like a thousand acres as you are surrounded by national park in total privacy. The Blackthorne rises to the level of the treetops with the help of a 4-story handmade cedar spiral staircase. The atrium built with floor-to-ceiling glass doors from San Francisco’s former train station connects to the living room with its 20 foot ceiling, 6 skylights, castle-like turrets, and walk-in stone fireplace.

First, Second and Third Floors: The first floor has two large bedrooms, one with its own additional sitting room, each with private entrances and decks. There is one full bath on this floor. The second floor has the living room, large dining area, kitchen, atrium, half bath and massive decking and separate laundry room with 1 washer and 2 dryers. The third floor has two very unique gabled bedrooms complete with skylights and stained glass, each with its own private bathroom and deck.

4th Floor and separate 1-bedroom suite: The octagonal shaped bedroom on the 4th floor has floor to ceiling glass on 7 of its 8 sides and treetop panoramic views on all sides. This room connects to a one-of-a-kind footbridge that leads to a private deck with bathroom and hot tub and both indoor and outdoor showers. In addition, there is a separate one-bedroom suite next to the 5-car parking area with queen bed, small living room, private bath and Satellite TV included with your rental.

“This is an architectural achievement. The operative word here is ‘elegant,’ for while whimsical in design, offers every imaginable comfort and feature”
Diane Siskin, Chattanooga New-Free Press

For your enjoyment, the home comes with four televisions with 170 channels, DSL high speed wireless internet, 150 first run high definition movies (DVD's), over 100 CD's for music as well as 4 ipod players, five telephones with unlimited local and long distance calling (in the U.S.),a gas Bar BQ Grill, a sparkling hot tub and baby grand piano. In addition, guests are provided with 4 tennis racquets, tennis balls and a key to a private tennis court 3 minutes away for unlimited tennis.

If you want a one-of-a-kind experience that you, your family and friends will remember, talk about and return to, visit this unique place and see why the New York Times reader’s poll gave The Blackthorne its 5 star highest rating.

Although children love the Blackthorne, the home may not be suitable for young children as there are many stairs and balconies.

“Which brings us to treehouses. At their simplest they are for kids, at their most complex, for Tarzan and Jane. Or they were until The Blackthorne.”
Robert Ragaini, The Boston Sunday Globe
