The Space

Hillside Fairfax stylish cottage with view and hot tub is nestled in gorgeous nature and walkable to town.

You will so love staying at this sweet cottage in the trees in Fairfax.

Will you hike up into the hills through a redwood forest onto high meadows with spectacular views? Will you walk down to downtown Fairfax and have a delicious meal, shop the boutiques, see a movie, attend a festival or hear live music? Or will you just take a hot tub on the deck watching birds fly into a serene sunset?

This Scandinavian-style cottage is petite but wonderfully comfortable, with a full modern kitchen, dining nook, and living room.

The master bedroom features a comfortable, new queen bed and en suite bathroom with shower. The second bedroom, great for a child but suitable for an adult, has a twin bed that and an en suite half bathroom.

Both bedrooms lead out to the spectacular 500 square-foot deck that is really the heart of this home. With a hot tub, tree-top location and vast valley view, you will want to spend all your time (and eat your meals!) out on the deck.

Down in the yard a heavenly hammock awaits your afternoon nap and skygazing.

The kitchen has a dishwasher, full size new gas stove and oven, microwave, double sink and refrigerator.

Ceiling fans, central heat and an air conditioning unit all keep you comfortable whatever the weather.

For your convenience, there is a washer and dryer for your use.

This is a wonderful place to bring a child or two! There is a swing and playhouse in the yard and many toys and children's books.

The location of the cottage is indeed very special. In a hillside Fairfax neighborhood, you can walk to world-class hiking right out the door. But it's also a 15 minute walk down the hill to downtown Fairfax, one of the most vibrant charming towns you'll ever fall in love with. And a walk just around the neighborhood will reward you with Mt. Tam views, friendly neighbors, redwoods and lovely homes.

This is also a great jumping off point for exploring Pt. Reyes, Bolinas Beach and Petaluma to the West, or San Francisco, 45 minutes South.

Whether you want a personal retreat, a romantic getaway or family fun, we welcome you to a lovely experience in Fairfax you'll never forget.

  • The cottage is very clean, comfortable and furnished with everything we would need. The deck has a wonderful view and we went hiking in the hills just up the street. Cate was a great hostess- very communicative and responded to an unexpected plumbing issue immediately. Check-in was seamless. Be prepared for a long, curving and narrow street to negotiate to get there- but the woodsy neighborhood, view and quietude made it worth it. (It wouldn't be something you would want to do several times a day!)

  • What a special place! From the hooting of owls outside our windows at night to the towering redwoods at every turn...Our family of three had a great month-long stay in Cate and Kristian's cottage. The location was impeccable and in walking distance to both town and hiking trails. Cate and Kristian were attentive hosts and filled with suggestions on things to do in the area. The hot tub was an enjoyable way to relax after a hectic day and our daughter was thrilled with the well-appointed child's room. We would definitely return if in the area again!!

  • We had a great time at Cates place. Top of the hill which means a curvy drive but top of the hill also meant sunny rolling trails right at the doorstep. Parking was tight, a big car will have difficulty. The cottage itself had everything we needed, warm and cozy with a lovely deck with a sweet little got tub and a great view. Highly recommended. Thanks Cate!

  • Cate and her husband were outstanding hosts, both readily available to answer all questions and generous with their time. We came to Fairfax to house hunt, and they went out of their way to offer us their help. Their little cottage is in a very lovely place, with easy access to beautiful hiking trails that we took full advantage of. It's also very close to the conveniences of Fairfax, San Anselmo, and San Rafael.

  • Great host. Very easy communication and checkin. The cottage is small, but has a great large deck and view and is very close to San Rafael.
