Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a most wonderful stay at The Cottage! It was so relaxing, pleasant, and quiet inside the house and outside in the yard under the beautiful Oak trees.
    We loved watching hummingbirds coming to the feeders. Tammy and Rob are great hosts. They were happy to have us stay at their place and did everything they could to make sure we were comfortable and enjoyed our stay, including leaving us snacks, food for breakfast and drinks. The hot soaking tub outside was a treat! Sierra Madre is such a great town. We enjoyed the small town atmosphere, walking all over and going hiking. We will be back! Thanks Tammy and Rob!

  • We very much enjoyed our stay at Tammy's Cottage. This is an adorable, small cottage with a super comfortable bed, well-equipped kitchen and an awesome outdoor space with hummingbirds and huge live-oak trees. We were in-town to visit our son and his family and found we didn't want to leave the serene backyard of this cottage! Tammy had everything perfect for us with welcome champagne, snacks and everything we needed for breakfast. The Cottage is in Sierra Madre which if you are not familiar with this town, is like being "outside the city" while "in the city"! The locals are laid back and so friendly, with great little restaurants and easy access to the Mount Wilson hiking (website hidden) is also very close to the 210 so it has easy access to Pasadena, LA and points east. If you are looking for a comfortable, peaceful and unique place to stay I would definitely consider the Cottage. Tammy and Rob are great hosts, the neighbors are friendly and helpful, and the surroundings quiet with the San Gabriel Mountains as a backdrop. Don’t miss Mary’s Market around the corner for super Saturday morning pop-overs and great breakfast and lunches throughout the week. Fantastic accommodation and we will stay again when in the LA area. Thanks Tammy for helping make our trip perfect. Happy New Year.

    Response from Tammy:

    So happy to hear all your positive comments, Donna. Thanks for including the info about Mary's Market, it's a unique place. I'm glad you enjoyed our backyard. We feel the same way! We make some trade-offs with our indoor square footage, but our outdoors, neighbors, and nature more than make up for that! I know you'll be back to see your grandbaby---next time perhaps we can meet. Until then,

  • This is the most wonderful, darling little cottage you could imagine staying in. It's straight out of a children's book. Very cozy and inviting with a great lot that includes two large oak trees that shade the entire place, a relaxing outdoor patio arrangement with a hammock swing, and a heat it yourself hot tub. Thank you Tammy for accommodating us in your home so well!

  • We had a perfect stay at the Cottage on Christmas eve. The cottage is very charming and cozy and our daughter was mesmerized by the beautiful oak trees.

  • We had a great stay at Tammy's cottage. We did not take advantage of the hot tub, though we did enjoy sitting out under the big oak tree in the back. It was perfect for the two of us. Thanks, Tammy!

  • Tammy's cottage is fantastic. Located right next to the Sierra Madres, it is well appointed, and within a short drive of the main part of town, the racetrack, and numerous hiking trails. Check-in/out was very easy and Tammy was extremely accommodating and communicative.

  • We absolutely loved and enjoyed our 7 day accommodations at the Cottage in Sierra Madre. It was a wonderful, and relaxing experience, lovely, cozy, and very clean cottage in a quiet neighborhood surrounded by beautiful trees with in minutes to groceries, restaurants, mall, park etc…. Rob and Tammy are wonderful hosts, very personable, caring and friendly, just a phone call away if you are in need of anyting. I can honestly say we made everlasting friendship with both. Given the opportunity with no doubt we would love to stay at the Cottage in Sierra Madre again. We highly recommended it. 5+ stars.

  • We loved our visit from start to finish! Rob and Tammy were responsive, personable and helpful. They left us helpful information about the house and Sierra Madre, and even greeted us with a delicious chocolate bar to kick off our stay. The house is adorable, with a lovely contained backyard. We really enjoyed hanging out under the huge oak and watching the world go by. It's located in the foothills of Sierra Madre so it feels a world away from LA but is still within walking distance of the Mount Wilson trail head and all the shops and restaurants on Sierra Madre's charming main street. The neighbors were all very friendly so we felt very welcomed throughout our stay. We highly recommend this bungalow retreat!

Hi, I'm Tammy. I am a 2nd Grade teacher and mom to our two Shih Tzus, Rocky and Lincoln. Rob works in marketing technology and enjoys Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I love cooking, especially in my newly remodeled kitchen. We enjoy traveling, food and wine tasting, great restaurants, and music. We love our little canyon community---a true sanctuary from the excitement of Los Angeles, only minutes, but a world away. Our wonderful neighbors, proximity to nature, and quiet serenity certainly combine to make a 'Mayberry' feel. If you like a little country with your city, we'd love to share! Happy Vacationing! Tammy
