Enjoy private, updated cottage with Queen Bed and large bath/shower, next to open space and trials, walking distance to town, with mini-fridge, hotplate and microwave. Property in quiet neighborhood. Great place for inlaws
Sit by our fishpond and relax, read a book on our huge lawn in a relaxing chair under the cherry tree, or stroll to the Marin Stables and say hello to the horses...The cottage is recently built with 400 sq ft of space to relax and chill out. Mini-fridge, sink, microwave, coffee pot, large bath and all new facilities. Pack n Play, Futon or daybed available if needed. *No smoking, please*. Also note because we are deep in a valley, our wifi and cell reception is spotty...so come here to disconnect!!
We are next to 24,000 acres of open space with miles of trails, close to San Rafael, San Anselmo, west Marin, etc. walking distance to town, restaurants, parks, etc. (1 mile to downtown Fairfax)
Interaction with Guests
The cottage is on the far side of the lawn, with a grape grotto entrance and plenty of room to relax in our quiet neighborhood.
Eclectic Fairfax, next to Marin Stables, Deer Park, lots of mt. biking and hiking trials...45 minutes to West Marin Beaches, Napa, Downtown SF.
Walking distance to downtown Fairfax. 1 mile.
Other Things to Note
Cell phone coverage is spotty, since we are in a valley. Could be a good thing? Wifi also spotty but we have an hard wire you can plug into. We also have 2 friendly huskies on the property who will greet you with a howl and a tail wag!
Please keep gate closed so dogs don't escape! And no smoking in the cottage!!
Marla's cottage is perfect. It's very clean, cozy, and functional. Located just a few steps from the trails and only a mile from downtown Fairfax, but it feels completely removed and in the woods. It was the perfect getaway and while we didn't get a chance to meet Marla, her husband was very friendly and gave us a rundown of the cottage when we arrived. Not to mention, their huskies are adorable and friendly!
Very cute studio, well appointed and comfortable. Gracious hosts including a very sweet pair of huskies. A great place for a quiet getaway. Lots to do close by or do nothing at all except relax!
Relaxed, comfy and casual: this is what defines staying at Marla's place in Fairfax! We're big Fairfax fans and were delighted to find a totally new trail literally next door to this place. In addition to being really "in the woods" the cottage is super cozy, refurbished with a new bathroom and modern amenities, a huge TV screen and surrounded by fluffy grass, hills and two completely loving Siberian Huskies who will greet you upon your arrival. They stocked it with a few snacks and a casual welcome note. Everything was lovely and just *easy*. We're so glad to have this option in Fairfax!
The cottage was great and the location is perfect for hikers/walkers. We hiked the trails and walked into town for coffee and dinner. We didn't use our car the entire time. Walking back from town in the evening we heard owls hooting a couple of times.
Marla was friendly, responsive and helpful. We were out most of the time so unfortunately we didn't get a chance to meet in person.
We had some trouble with the wifi, but in retrospect I'm happy I was on the trail instead of checking email.
The private cottage was great; perfect for a quiet weekend to relax. There are hiking trails behind the Marin Stables, right next door. Also - the cottage has a fantastic, deep bath tub with jets.
Marla was a gracious host and very accommodating. We had everything we needed for our stay. I'd definitely go back!
Marla and her husband were fine hosts. We were welcomed when we arrived, but barely saw them after that. The cottage was wonderful, and included amenities not in the listing (including wireless internet). We were concerned about the smell from the stables, but it was minimal outside and did not make it inside. I would definitely recommend staying here.
We lived in Hawaii for many years, so we bring the Aloha spirit to our home and life. We have twin 4 year old girls and twin 8 year old huskies! Everyone will welcome you then let you have your space in the quiet cottage.
