2. The Blackthorne
Rent the party house, but sleep in the tree house. That’s right. You can stay in the entire house (6 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, and a hot tub) but the top floor lookout tower is a glass-ensconced octagon surrounded by woodsy views. Kayak, hike the trails, or hit the beach with your buddies during the day.
$525 per night, 266 Vallejo Ave, Pt. Reyes Station (415-454-5515).
