Lynne was great at coordinating and making me feel very welcome. Lynne's place is part of a larger home and on a high ridge near what's called China Camp state park. Sitting on the deck with a glass of wine, the birds soar right over your head. So peaceful. You feel as though you're miles from civilization but in reality...10 minutes. Amazing. The bed is comfortable, the place is very roomy and access to your car is via maybe a dozen steps, max. I couldn't have asked for a better place to spend a weekend. Thanks Lynne.

This is the perfect spot if you want a little getaway for a long weekend...or week. It's nestled on top of a hill overlooking a valley, providing a splendid dose of quiet and nature. I was looking for a private tiny home in the forests nearby, but this proved to be even better. It's also a hike away from the excellent nature reserve China Camp. Lynne was an exceptional host as well. Super responsive and super accommodating!! Highly recommended, can't go wrong with staying here. Bring groceries.

Timothy, Thank you for your lovely words. I am so glad it was a perfect place for you. And yes, sometimes we have snacks on hand. Meanwhile the small grocery is about 2 miles away.

Lynne's place is an absolute sanctuary with beautiful views to wake up to each morning and the quiet surroundings make it a relaxing place to come home to each day. It is also conveniently located to downtown San Rafael where there is excellent Sol food (a must try if in the area !) Given more time, we would have explored the beautiful hiking trails that are just round the corner. Lynne was also a very responsive host. Though we did not meet her, she left us with clear instructions for the house. She provided everything we needed for the stay. We would highly recommend this place !

I really enjoyed Lynne's place located outside of town and up in the hills. The bedroom was large and easily accommodated my trip. Having a full kitchen was also handy and enjoyed eating out on the deck with a view of the surrounding hills. Lynne was out of town while i stayed at her place but she checked in via email to make sure everything was going well and left great notes for us. I would certainly consider her place again if i am back in the San Rafael area. Jim
