Black Mountain Farm overlooks the Nicasio reservoir and the rolling hills of West Marin County. We have a cozy little off-the-grid "cottage" next to our pond with a bed, solar lights and incredible views. A perfect spot for artists, bikers, hikers and birders to come and enjoy a completely unplugged (no electricity/no heat) vacation. Its like Glamping in a wooden tent! . In Spring, there are lambs, baby rabbits and chicks! Come out to the country for a technology cleanse! No dogs!

The space
Black Mountain Farm is a family fiber farm (wool and angora) with views for miles of the rolling hills of West Marin and the Nicasio reservoir. We are only an hour north of the Golden Gate Bridge but far-removed from city life - fresh air, peacefulness, wide open spaces. There is a privacy gate at the end of our driveway - please read the directions on how to open it. Sheep, horses, chickens, turkeys and wildlife roam happily on our property. The Point Reyes National Seashore and Tomales Bay are only minutes away. Not suitable for children. We block the listing during the week to offer a Covid19 buffer between guests. The pond is not safe for kids under 14. No dogs!

Guest access
The pond cottage sleeps two people. It is far from the main house with plenty of privacy. There is a privacy gate at the end of our driveway - please read the instructions on how to enter the property before coming as there is no cell reception in the area. Guests can enjoy the grassy three-acre area around the pond which is great for outdoor games and just hanging out. There is an outdoor kitchen with a Coleman camping stove, pots, pans and some dishware. A fire pit is available for use during WINTER months only; you can purchase wood from the Jacksons, conditions permitting. We provide fresh bottled drinking water and there is an outhouse with a composting toilet. The outdoor bath tub/shower is run with a portable propane gas water heater so in the Winter months there is less warm water; you may need to miss your daily bathing and enjoy knowing that you are part of water conservation on the Farm -:). The cabin is insulated but has no heat so bring extra sleeping bags if you get cold easily. Boots are a must in winter with all the mud on the farm! Not safe for children. we only offer this listing on weekends to provide a Covid19 buffer to guests. The pond is not safe for kids under 14.

Other things to note
As is common throughout the Bay Area, weather can be variable…foggy usually in the morning and brilliant sunshine later in the day. We have a farm dog that roams the property guarding the sheep and chickens. She is friendly and her name is Ruby. There is a privacy gate on the driveway. The remote control to open the gate is in a wooden box on the support post on the left side. Please remember this as there is no cell reception to call us when you are arriving. No dogs!

I am a Fiber Farmer. I raise sheep and Angora rabbits and use their fiber to create clothes. I am also a Mom of two beautiful and very active, busy kids. I enjoy tending my animals growing; veggies, fruit, eggs and meat from my farm for my family. I grew up in Italy and began to learn about how a farm can sustain us both physically and emotionally. I have lived in 3 countries and 4 states; no matter where I go I always seek out beautiful water vistas and farm land. I have always wanted folks to see the magic that see experience every day here on Black Mountain Farm. Check out my wix.com web (Email hidden by Airbnb) for what is currently happening on the Farm.
