Description

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, as are TV, VCR, & DVD.

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 available for daily, weekly, or month to month rentals. The standard rate given is for stays of two and more nights.
For single night stays a special rate of $240.00 is available only by "Special Offer", in response to inquiries about one night stays. That rate will be established by a "Special Offer" for the night when responding to the guest's inquiry.

Interaction with guests

Although I love to meet and greet my guests, and to learn about their lives and travels, I also understand and respect that some guests want complete privacy. The location of the cottage makes either approach easy and natural.

The neighborhood

West Blithedale Canyon is one of the loveliest areas in beautiful Mill Valley. We are tucked in a valley on the slope of Mt. Tamalpais, with redwoods and bay trees. The cottage is next to a public redwood grove through which a path from the cottage and house passes, beside the creek, to within a block of downtown Mill Valley shopping and entertainment.

Getting around
