Other things to note
Day Guests
Our home and property are for registered guests only.
We do this as we have agreements with our neighbors to limit the number of guests. Also, we share our driveway with a neighbor so we need to be sensitive to the number of vehicles in the driveway.

If you wish to have up to two (2) day guests on one day during your visit, that would be very fine.
But please advise Geraldine and Joe in advance that you having guests and on which day so we can make arrangements with neighbors. Please ask guests not to bring dogs.

Water useage is a universal problem for all Californians. We trust all guests will be environmentally responsible about their personal water useage.
Due to Marin Co water restrictions and costs, on site laundry facilities are available at a cost of $10 per laundry load. We supply Tide Complete tablet detergent.

The "common space" queen bed is an air mattress for use in the living room, adjacent to the kitchen & dining areas. The air mattress is available for the occasional family who requires it. Please request in advance.

Location

Lagunitas, California, United States

We are located in Marin County in the forested, tranquil San Geronimo Valley, surrounded by rolling hills, douglas fir, oak and bay trees. There are excellent hiking trails, golf and restaurants very nearby. World class hiking, biking and equestrian facilities are a short drive.

If you or your children have not seen the giant redwood trees, that truly is a must do. In this regard, our home is about 8 minutes from Samuel P Taylor State Park, where there are magnificent redwood trees, many right next to the Lagunitas Creek. This experience is highly similar to visiting Muir Woods but you do not need to park, take a bus and wait in long lines with a huge crowd of people. Samuel P Taylor Park is a mystical place … children & adults can walk right into the hallowed out base of some giant redwood trees. Plan a picnic ... the kids love playing in the creek.

The many beaches near us offer adults and kids great joy!
The village of Stinson Beach, has a spectacular beach and the quaint town features good restaurants, art galleries, surf shop, etc.

Point Reyes National Seashore Headquarters is about 20 minutes from our Lagunitas home. It was established to preserve and protect wilderness, natural ecosystems, and cultural resources along the diminishing undeveloped coastline of the western United States.
The Seashore is a sanctuary for myriad plant and animal species and for the human spirit—for discovery, inspiration, solitude, and recreation—and exists as a reminder of the human connection to the land.
Marine biologists have identified nearly a third of all known marine mammal species in the waters surrounding Point Reyes. Blue whales and humpback whales feed there during spring and summer months. Gray whales migrate past the shores twice a year on their round trip from Alaska to Baja.

The Point Reyes National Seashore Visitor Center on Bear Valley Road is a fantastic opportunity for children & adults. There is a natural history museum, maps of all the hiking trails, Miwok Indian cultural experiences AND, across the road, the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake Trail … it’s just a short hike, but very memorable.

On the way to Stinson Beach is the "Five Brooks Horseback Riding" facility. You can take short or all day trips inland or to the seashore.

Nearby Tomales Bay features “Blue Waters Kayaking”, a full service kayaking outfitter.

Local Restaurants & Deli:
Lagunitas Grocery & Deli is just at the bottom of our hill. It features an extensive deli. The owners create marvelous home cooked breakfasts served in a quaint dining space where locals gather.

“Arti Restaurant", also just at the bottom of our hill, features Indian fare and gets RAVE reviews.

"Two Bird Cafe at the Valley Inn", about a mile away, provides very fine American food dining for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is a charming outdoor dining deck. In season, they serve fresh oysters.

The town of Fairfax is about 15 minutes away ... LOTS of great live music, movie theater, restaurants, bakeries and coffee shops.

The village of Nicasio, about 10-15 minutes away, features the "Rancho Nicasio” restaurant, an old fashioned saloon type of building. Movie celebrities have been known to visit there when visiting director George Lucas' ranch down the road. The "Rancho" has lunches, dinners and music in the evenings ... on the weekends they host live lawn concerts with BBQ food ... makes for a GREAT day!

Lots of fresh, organic, local food, cheese and organic markets ... no shortage of gluten free offerings. The "Good Earth" market in Fairfax is all organic.
The Fairfax Farmer's Market is on Wednesday from 4 - 8 pm.
The local San Geronimo Farmer's Market is also on Wednesday from 1 - 7:30.

There are glorious hiking trails right from our driveway ... do a search and all of them will pop up. We're also happy to give you ideas when you arrive.
