Self check-inCheck yourself in with the keypad.

This cozy studio cottage (lovingly called the Writer's Cottage) at Stemple Creek Ranch in West Marin is a sweet retreat. It has a small deck with a BBQ, tiny kitchenette, outdoor shower, and views of the countryside that stretch for miles.
We have two other AirBnB lodgings on the ranch - A 5 person "Rustic Cabin" and a 6 person "Charming Farmhouse". We also have an event venue including a beautiful barn if you are looking for somewhere to host party, wedding, or corporate event.

Loved staying at the ranch. Beautiful and peaceful location. I saw newborn calves romping about with their moms, herons and cranes. Lovely getaway.
