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!

Marilla's cottage was so adorable! It was quiet and situated in the beautiful woods, but very close to lots of cute shops, restaurants, etc! The bed was so comfortable, and it had everything I needed. My only regret is not being able to stay longer.

We loved this cozy cottage tucked into the most beautiful redwood forest! It was a lovely walk into town and convenient to everything. I would be happy to stay there again.

We had a very comfortable stay in this quiet, scenic place that was also close to the lovely downtown area of Mill Valley. We liked the comfy bed sheets and fluffy towels.

This is a lovely cottage behind the main house in Mill Valley. Even though it is within walking distance of the center of Mill Valley you feel more like you are in Muir Woods. It is so quiet that both my husband and I slept in each morning. There is a creek just outside the cottage, and you can hear the waterfall. Just a 5 minute walk though redwoods by the creek, and you are in a small shopping district, with a variety of eateries, coffee shops and a small grocery store. It was less than a half an hour drive into San Francisco. It is a great location if you are interested in seeing both the city and experience the natural wonders of the coast. There is no parking on the property, but the street parking was right in front of the house and didn't prove to be a problem.

A lovely cozy cottage in the trees, studio style. Wee kitchen with most of what you need to make a meal if you're eating in. A short walk to Mill Valley itself, and cafes and markets etc., and the bus route. We enjoyed out stay!
