Terri was great, the breakfast was freshly made and delicious and the room was just perfect, not sure we could have asked for more, even the location was pretty central to Point Reyes.

Perfect location for exploring Point Reyes!

Good location for visiting the park. Not hard to find in the dark. Convenient computer room and printer for printing boarding passes! Owner gave us a great restaurant recommendation near the San Francisco airport. Room had a nice window seat.

Great night with friends

We stayed in the Inverness Ridge room and enjoyed it very much. Bathroom was roomy and the room was comfortable. Breakfast was delicious.

Like the option of not having to have breakfast and saving a little money.

This is the best place to stay in the Pt Reyes area,especially if you like the quietness of the sitting room and the hospitality of the innkeeper. The breakfast is amazing and the afternoon wine and cheese is the best. Do yourself a favor and visit.

Enjoyable experience

The morning breakfast was wonderful and very tasty. It was nice to have coffee available in the reception room all afternoon.

Great place to stay - especially for books lovers

We stay for the weekend together with other couple and truly enjoyed the experience: the location, the comfort, the wonderful window seals with cushions for reading, the knowledgeable and lovely host. The breakfast was delicious and the relax atmosphere just what a doctor could prescribe for relaxation.

My wife and I enjoyed two wonderful days exploring the Pt. Reyes region, highlighted by our stay at Ten Inverness Way B&B. Host Teri Mattson is gracious and made us feel right at home. Her breakfasts include items from her garden - yummy! We will definitely return.

Not to be missed

Our Favourite Hideaway

This is one of our favourite B&Bs we love coming to stay here. The breakfasts are delicious and it is near many good restaurants for dining in the evening. Our last visit [our 2nd stay] we were in the Inverness Ridge room, we opened our windows each morning onto the view of the mountain and the birds singing. We always plan on playing Mastermind in the sitting room, but end up having a glass of wine and nodding off to sleep because we are so relaxed! It is a perfect, quiet retreat after a day out exploring the beautiful surrounds.
