Enjoy private, updated cottage with Queen Bed and large bath/shower, next to open space and trials, walking distance to town. 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 400 sq ft with lots of space to relax and chill out. Pack n Play, Futon or daybed available if needed. *No smoking, please*. Also note because we are deep in a valley, 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 flat mile to downtown Fairfax, one large block from Deer Park Villa)
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. We have two sweet, older huskies who like to hang out in the yard and welcome you with a cute husky howl.
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 flat mile. Also a block from Deer Park Villa - great space for wedding parties and wedding guests to stay.
Other Things to Note
Cell phone coverage is spotty, since we are in a valley. Could be a good thing? Wifi works well. 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!! No pets please.
Was welcomed by amiable host to a lovely and quiet cottage with a great bed, shower, jacuzzi bathtub, kitchenette, refrigerator, and in a lovely natural setting. She invited us to ask for anything we needed and we had a lovely stay just right for our visit.
Marla and John have a spacious cottage which includes a deep tub for a relaxing bath or if you prefer a shower with a rainfall shower head and a very comfortable bed. There is information about the town of Fairfax and the history of the area for your reading pleasure. Marla responded to our request right a way and had everything ready for us when we arrived.
I stayed in this cottage for several weeks, and loved it! The inside is spacious and has a comfortable bed, a huge bathroom and a kitchen with amenities. There are so many spectacular places in the immediate surroundings; horse stables, trails, mountains, lakes, redwoods, and it's in close proximity to great food and restaurants as well. You probably need a car, but there's a lot to do within walking distance. Besides the location and the beautiful weather that California has to offer, it's always nice to be in good hands with your hosts. Marla and John were attentive about my comfort, and very accommodating... in particular about making some last minute changes on my behalf. They have adorable twin girls and 2 awesome huskies. I came on a healing retreat and found it to be very peaceful, quiet, and restorative.
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.
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.
