Interaction with Guests
We love company and sharing a bottle of wine over dinner. Our beautiful little town is one of the best kept secrets in the Los Angeles area, along with Pasadena. We're happy to have you as our guests.
Beautiful Garfield Park, downtown shops, great restaurants, & train station are all within walking distance. Beautiful safe small town vibe of Craftsman homes only 8 miles from happening downtown LA. Mission Street (3 minutes away) is filled with great boutique clothing shops, galleries, restaurants, soda fountain, gifts, music conservatory, antique stores, used book store, charming train station, Irish pub, Mexican bakery, and lots more. Arts festival, Farmers' Market every (URL HIDDEN) much going on all the time.
I don't use my car much at all. All walkable. Train goes to downtown L.A., Hollywood, Long Beach, the ocean, Pasadena, East L.A., etc. So much to see and do in Pasadena...theater, movies, outdoor events, shopping, etc.
Other Things to Note
Kitchenette includes small fridge (2nd fridge available for long-term stays) microwave, toaster oven, egg cooker, coffee and tea maker and hot plate. No stove. A small gas grill with griddle outside the cottage can be used for grilling/cooking.
This is a relatively quiet neighborhood. We should probably keep it that way. No more than two people can stay in the cottage. No unpaid guests. Absolutely no smoking. Well behaved dogs are welcome with an extra $100 security deposit if arranged in advance.
