  • We enjoyed our stay at the quaint cottage perfect for a long weekend getaway to the bay area. The creek and wooded scenery was very relaxing, and Marilla made sure we were very comfortable and stocked with coffee, dairy, treats and other essentials.

    Wifi and cell service was spotty, so we needed to connect to do mapping and other trip planning and search tasks once we got out of the wooded areas. In general being disconnected helped us relax more, so it wasn't a big deal. :)

    The cabin was an easy walk to downtown Mill Valley and quick drives to main routes for sightseeing. Overall, it was a great place to stay and unwind. Thanks for having us!

  • Marilla was a great host, and made us feel right at home. Upon our arrival, she gave us a brief tour of the property, a comfortable cottage surrounded by gorgeous landscape and tall redwoods. Marilla was also kind enough to leave us a care package of baked goods, fruit, and snacks, a very nice gesture which we thoroughly enjoyed. This was the perfect getaway, surprisingly close to SF, yet very quiet and calming. I had a great time exploring the area.

  • Feliks and I enjoyed our stay at the Cottage greatly. Surrounded by Redwoods, ferns and flowers, it is an easy walk along the creek into town.
    Marilla was a helpful, friendly and gracious host. She left treats for us and Peet's coffee.
    It was interesting and a pleasure to spend time with her.
    When visiting family in the area we would definitely like to stay there again.

  • I had an amazing time at this cottage. From the moment we met Marilla I knew it was going to be better than any hotel stay. She showed us around her beautiful backyard, and led us to our perfect cottage by the creek. Inside she had prepared pastries, chocolate, and some fruit for us to enjoy. We were in town for a two day wedding, so it felt so good to come back to a relaxing and quiet cottage after the day's busy festivities.

    The room had a ceiling fan, a dehumidifier, a mini fridge, amazing water pressure in the shower, a very comfortable bed, a coffee maker, and many other useful things. Our views from all of the windows made it feel like we were in the middle of a forest. It was the perfect amount of room for two people, as well. Marilla was the sweetest host, never giving up an opportunity to chat with us for a bit. We left the day of her birthday! Hope it went well!

  • We had a great, restful time in this little cabin and found fresh flowers waiting for us upon check-in. It is close to Muir Woods, Marin Headlands and the City. You are also in walking distance of the fun shops and restaurants in Mill Valley. Book it and tell Marilla hello from us!

  • An amazing time everything I could have hoped for and more. Great area everything previous tenants say is so true and more. The cottage was perfect Marilla is truly an inspiration of kindness. I have no words to express my gratitude

  • We had a wonderful time at Marilla's Cottage by the Creek. The view was amazing, the bed was comfortable and the shower was powerful. It was so soothing to come back to a hot and forceful shower stream after hours of walking through San Francisco. Marilla left a basket of treats and was more than willing to help us with anything. She even called us in the middle of our trip to make sure that we were enjoying our stay at her Cottage, since we were in the City every day. She is a very kind woman. The only downside to our trip was that we spent so much time in San Francisco, that we didn't get to enjoy morning coffee by the creek or walking the trails near the cottage. This is a great place to stay whether you want a break from the busyness of life or need a cheaper option just outside of San Francisco. Couldn't have been happier with our stay. Highly recommended.

  • We had a wonderful time at the cottage. We loved being able to walk into town and enjoyed the peaceful setting. Marilla was warm and welcoming and very responsive.

  • Marilla's place was wonderful — very convenient to all the attractions of Marin County and not far from downtown San Francisco. Marilla is a gracious and thoughtful host. Would absolutely stay here again!

  • 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.
