Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • My wife and I had a fantastic weekend in Joan's secluded Mill Valley retreat. The room was charming and bright, even nestled into the redwood hills. The room was stocked with fresh towels, refreshments and a lot of reading material to enjoy on the private deck. The neighborhood is close to town, but just enough out of the way to feel like you're in the wilderness. We would certainly come back.

  • We had a wonderful, restful stay at The Hawk. We were in town for the Dipsea Race. Joan was an excellent host - she gifted us with an abundance of healthful treats, most of which we packed up for a post-race picnic. The Hawk is beautifully furnished...we enjoyed pulling a few of the books down from the shelves, relaxing in the sauna post-race, and waking up to the breathtaking views of Mt. Tam. While we've stayed closer to town in the past, we loved being away from it all in our own little "treehouse" and soaked up the quiet, peaceful setting of the forest.

  • We could not have been more pleased with The Hawk! It was lovely, peaceful and private nestled within the forrest. Joan was very attentive to our needs, but at the same time she was very respectful of our privacy. As a bonus, we arrived to find a few welcome goodies in the kitchenette. Thanks, Joan!

  • The Hawk was perfect for our weekend getaway to the bay area! The room is truly private and detached from the rest of the house, with its own deck and little sauna amid a forest of redwood trees. The silence was golden, and little things like an assortment of tea/coffee and trail mix were a nice welcoming touch.

  • A beautiful, very quiet and very comfortable place. As advertised. Sumptous bed. The floors were so clean you could eat from them. The kitchenette had healthy nosh goodies teas and the bathroom had pleasant toiletries. Joan's communicative and her offering is both gracious and thoughtful. My only regret was that I was hustling with business; I couldn't in the moment of my stay make time to talk with her. When I return to the area, I'd be inclined to again look her place up and see if it would be available.

  • Thank you Joan for another peaceful vacation. This is the second time this year that we have stayed at the Hawk and I think that speaks enough for itself = ].

  • The Hawk is absolutely charming! The room is nestled among red wood trees but also offers a nice view of the mountains. The room is tastefully furnished and feels warm, cozy and inviting. You even have your own sauna room and a nice little deck! Joan is a wonderful host, very caring and attentive to details. If you wish to experience the charm of Mill Valley this is the place to stay.

  • The Hawk is a very secluded, private and beautiful little space. The magic of the redwoods is incredible and this property is right in the middle of it = ]. Joan was a great host and I would highly recommend this retreat to anyone who is looking for peace and serenity. The deck is amazing and provides an excellent meditation space to relax and connect...

  • Joan's place is absolutely lovely. It has a beautiful little deck that makes you feel among the trees. The sauna was easy to use and handy after a long weekend. The Hawk felt very welcoming from the moment we arrived. Joan was sweet enough to leave us yogurt and fruit and some nice goodies from the bakery. She also made sure that everything we could possibly need during our stay was handy in the space. Definitely appreciated!

I am an adventurer, and and an entrepreneur. Mother of two grown daughters and three grandchildren. Still Light Pond came to be in a dream...redwoods, a pond, a meadow, a old red farmhouse, exquisite light. I went online and imagined where that kind of property could be...and indeed it existed and was for sale, and I bought it without questioning why! I feel privileged to be her steward this last decade. The location feels like Italy with the soft and 'forever' light. The natural pond, seasonal creek, redwood grove, large flat meadow, little hiking trails, orchard etc. all on just 4 acres feels like a thousand! The setting and the finishes to the house I was lucky enough to do with the addition of the master suite have indeed made it a mini estate.
