Forest Knolls is a funky old hippie town that consists of a local Saloon, park and small store. This is where the hippies went when the Haight got "weird". All the classic characters passed this way at some time or another. Jerry Garcia left the planet from Forest Knolls.
There is buses that run up and down SFD. Check web for info. on West Marin Stagecoach.
Other Things to Note
This is a hiking, biking kind of place.
Please no raging parties. We do have neighbors across the seasonal creek that need some quiet time after 10 pm. Voices carry up the canyon as well. We have cable music stations but not big speakers. Enjoy yourself.
This is a beautiful place in an ideal location. With easy access to Point Reyes Seashore, Tomales Bay, and Mt. Tam, the relaxing house and kind host complete your experience. Particularly appreciated were the flexible departure/arrival times, plenty of pantry staples for cooking, excellent wifi, and backyard hot tub. Thank you Tim!
Yellow Cottage was the perfect Marin getaway! Tucked away in Forest Knolls with a feeling of seclusion, but close to everything in Fairfax/Point Reyes. The house itself is very nice. Stayed warm on the chilly nights with the indoor gas fireplace (and the hot tub of course!) Great kitchen too! Outfitted with enough cutlery/dishes to roast a turkey, bake a pie and grill oysters (on the propane BBQ out back!)
A few notes about the sleeping arrangements: The main bedroom is great, but has a curtain instead of a solid door (just FYI). Also hard to tell from the photos but the loft has TWO twin beds in it, so a great set-up for family or friends that can share a room but not a bed.
Host is very communicative and helpful through the whole process...though we didn't need much support because everything was set-up perfectly for us! THANKS Tim!
Very comfortable, lovely home in a gorgeous setting. Tim was easy to communicate and very accommodating.
The house was great. it gave me what i wanted, a nice quiet retreat close to great outdoors adventures.
Tim's place is lovely. We really enjoyed the house's location -it is surrounded by beautiful trees-, the large and well maintained backyard, the hot tub. Inside the house our kids were thrilled to find a mezzanine. The house is cozy and well furnished. We would definitely come back.
This home worked great for my family to visit 4 days. We managed having only one bathroom, even with the 3 females. Tim has done a thorough job describing the property. It is in a quiet sub division off the beaten path. I would definitely recommend if you are a small family looking to be centrally located between Napa/Sonoma and the city.
We enjoyed the hot tub after packing in two long days of sight seeing. Specifically walking from Union Square to North beach - our trolley didn't go that route. He has furnished soaps for laundry / cleaning kitchen, etc. so I didn't need to buy that for our grocery visit. Muir woods and the coast around Stinson Beach are breathtaking - I hated to leave for Ohio.
Absolutely wonderful home!! Very tastefully decorated with modern amenities. We had a great time, so much to do in the area. My husband and I came for our anniversary, had dinner nearby in Olema, then attended a wedding in San Rafael on Saturday.
The cottage was fully stocked, comfortable bed. Beautiful yard and super cute porch. Can't wait to go back!
