About Us

Doris & Greg first met in the summer of 1963 in Germany, where Doris was working as a medical secretary at 2nd General Hospital, Lansdstuhl and Greg was in the U.S. Army, stationed in Kaiserslautern. After Greg’s tour of duty, Doris followed him to California where they first lived in Redwood City and then in Fairfax, California.

In 1972 they found an acre of land in Point Reyes, built their own home and raised their three sons. After the boys left home they started Ferrando’s Hideaway B&B in 1988, with one cottage and later expanded to 3 rooms in the main house.

In 1993, Greg started building a new home, just three blocks from the original homestead. Their vision was to have just two deluxe cottages for people to have privacy and enjoy the magnificent Point Reyes area. Alberti Cottage was opened in 1995 and Alberti Bungalow was added in December of 2000.
