About this listing

This lovely studio cottage in Mill Valley, Marin County, just North of San Francisco, sits beside a stream, just 20 feet from a small waterfall. It is only a five minute walk, alongside the creek through a redwood grove, from downtown Mill Valley!

The space

This cottage is a lovely, private, fully furnished studio in the redwoods of Mill Valley, Marin County, California, just North of San Francisco.

The cottage sits beside a stream only 20 feet from a small waterfall. A five minute walk alongside the stream and through the adjoining Miller Redwood Grove leads to the heart of the village of Mill Valley. There the visitor finds the Sequoia movie theater (chief venue of the famed Mill Valley Film Festival), the Mill Valley Market grocery, the Book Depot book store, several fine coffee houses and restaurants, and Sweetwater, Mill Valley's beloved music hall.

Public transportation to San Francisco and other locations in the area is available at Lytton Square, the gathering space at the heart of the village. Golden Gate Transit. (URL HIDDEN) provides the bus service between Mill Valley and San Francisco. Detailed trip planning is available up to three weeks in advance at their website.

The Cottage by the Creek has a simple, charming ambiance. Comforts include a fully equipped kitchenette; bathroom with shower; and an adjustable queen sized bed with vibrating massage. Wireless internet is provided.

This is a great location for hiking, biking; or day trips to the Wine Country of Sonoma, Napa, and the Russian River. Point Reyes National Seashore, Muir Woods, and the recreational opportunities of Stinson Beach and Bolinas are short drives away.

The cottage is a cozy and convenient place to stay in Mill Valley. I stayed here with my boyfriend to attend wedding festivities over the weekend, so we were mainly there at night to sleep. The house is on a very quiet street but within a few blocks of Downtown Mill Valley. It's very private and tucked away behind the main house. Check in was almost automatic since Marilla and Cordelia leave the keys for you so you can check-in at your convenience. The cottage itself is great for 1-2 people and there is a stove for cooking, a mini-fridge and microwave, and it has many other essentials you may need. The area around is so quiet (and peaceful with the faint sound of the creek) and you can sleep soundly here. It was a great choice for us for a quick weekend trip.

Great little place tucked into the woods yet very conveniently located close to the heart of Mill Valley. Bed is ideal for a couple, anything else and it might be a little cozy.

We had a wonderful stay at the cottage by the creek. It was so peaceful sitting out back by the waterfall, and we loved being able to walk along the creek into town. The convenience to the town square can't be beat, and Cordelia made sure to check in on us to make sure our stay was going well. Would definitely recommend a stay here!

A pleasant, cozy abode situated under a beautiful forest canopy, Marilla's creekside cottage was tidy, comfortable, secluded and yet walking distance to shops and restaurants. Great place for a writing retreat!

Beautiful location near Muir beach. It's a cozy cottage next to a larger house that is also rented out. But you still very cute and private.
