  • Marilla's Cottage by Creek is private and cozy. She was welcoming and friendly. The cottage is located above a waterfall in a redwood canyon - truly lovely: mossy, cool and shady. The cottage is a converted garage - comfortable and well equipped. The town of Mill Valley is a charming upscale town with good cafes and restaurants. The location is ideal for touring in the Bay Area with easy access to Muir Woods, San Francisco and within day-trip range to Sonoma wine country.

  • Marilla's cottage was all that she said.....quaint, quiet, walking distance-4 blocks to many "fine restaurants" & budget eateries too...The town of Mill Valley is a special place to visit just a short bike ride from the Maritime & tourist town of Sausalito...PS Marilla is a sweetie too, bringing fresh flowers to us....

  • I can't believe my weekend has come and gone. Marilla's cottage was the perfect location. It is situated in lovely Mill Valley and just a few minutes walk from the center of town. Every aspect of arriving, getting my key, coming and going was a breeze. The pictures display the cottage accurately and all was nice, tidy, and clean. I had a beautiful basket of fruit, coffee, cinnamon roll, and chocolate! Fresh flowers in the room were beautiful. I was lucky to have one night or rain (much needed these days) and the cottage was so cozy. Marilla followed through on all communication and all was just as planned and desired.
    Thank you Marilla!

  • Marilla's cottage is incredibly peaceful and charming and the best place to stay outside of San Francisco in the sweet city of Mill Valley. We don't want to ruin the surprise but we were so delighted to be greeted by the beautiful redwood forest/park adjacent to the cottage. The area provides the ideal stroll through the forest into town. The stream/creek was the perfect way to lull us to sleep after exploring the beautiful bay area all day and night.

    Marilla has equipped the cottage with everything you need and more - from kitchen with toaster, toaster over, fridge, coffee press and everything you need in the bathroom. She is also a gracious and delightful host, leaving us a surprise gift of chocolate and rolls on our door.

    We can't say enough great things about Marilla's cottage and we will be back again one day.

  • This place is so very lovely and cozy..!
    The sounds from the river is always in the background, and everything there made me feel very much at home.

    Marilla is such a beautiful being.. There was connection straight away and
    I appreciate so muc her humour, curiosity and light..
    I’ve been so grateful for meeting her..
    As a host she was very caring, checking if the cottage was warm enough, and if I needed anything in the kitchen.. Really nice to be sincerely cared for like that..

    I will definitely come back to stay at the cottage :)

  • The cottage was wonderful !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The pictures of the cottage tell you what you will experience visually but they can not convey the warmth and love Marilla has given to her cottage and her guests. We so enjoyed our stay. We enjoyed visiting with Marilla and exchanging stories over tea and chocolates.

    Be sure to find Yum Chocolates behind the USbank. Delicious!!!! Savor each one. We also really enjoyed Vasco Italian restaurant. We had to go back and eat another meal because we sat the the cooking bar and watched all salads and appetizers being prepared.

  • I had such a nice relaxing weekend at Marilla's cottage. She set the tone off perfectly with her warm welcome and offering anything she could to make our stay as comfortable as possible. That treatment lasted until the minute we drove off. The cottage was very clean and cozy. It was a great stay! Thanks again Marilla.
