Guest room in my 2 bedroom home in West Marin. Very close to private meditation center, Spirit Rock. The room includes a double bed, an adjoining spacious deck & hot tub, a private bathroom and beautiful views. The kitchen is available for your use as needed. Hiking and bike trails are very nearby, as well as the coast only 30 minutes away; and San Francisco under an hour.
This is a wonderful setting in the redwoods for your private retreat, vacation get away, or just a stop on the way. Also available for long term stays.
I interact with my guests as needed to accommodate their needs and just enough so that we may get to know one another and feel comfortable. I have treasured meeting my guests and found it to be a lovely balance for meeting new people.
I love living in the trees and having a view of open space; a feeling of being remote, yet only minutes away from the highway and then just short distances to the east or west.
Public transportation is limited, however it is doable. In this area it is best to have your own car.
Marin County requires a 10% Transit Occupancy Tax which is already included in this price!
Laurie weaves a cozy warm atmosphere of Welcome for her guests.
She went out of her way to make sure I was comfortable.
In many small but significant ways, she went out of her way to assure I felt welcome.
With respect to my attending a retreat at a local center, she graciously provided the space for my being able to continue my commitment of silence during the retreat ...while traveling back and forth from the center to her home.
The house is located in one of the most amazing areas of West Marin. Towering redwoods canopy the environment while nature is at her very best all around.
The location gives you the feeling of being way out in the wild..while, in fact, you are 8 minutes from one of the best towns in Marin County - Fairfax.
My wife and I stayed for two nights at Laurie's. The house is charming, with a beautiful terrace. Laurie was very friendly and respected our privacy. We were hiking at Point Reyes that weekend and the place is 30 mins drive from Bear Valley Visitor Center.
Laurie was very friendly and a gracious host. She has a beautiful home among towering trees. We enjoyed our stay!
Beautiful home in a beautiful location. Super quiet and peaceful. Host is very generous and friendly. Would highly recommend!
I am so grateful for my long stay at Laura's cozy house. I was ill for much of the holidays, and could not have had a kinder more considerate housemate. The room was warm and comfortable, and I felt comfortable
even though I was not well.
Laurie was great and very responsive. We booked within hours of needing a place to stay and the service was spotty, but she kept on trying. Her home is welcoming and warm and remote (which is what we wanted), so get there before dark. Laurie was a great hostess and knows the balance of giving privacy and talking if wanted. The bed was comfortable and the shower was great!. The hot tub under the stars and redwoods was amazing! We would stay again!
Laurie has a magical space, and is very friendly and conscientious!
She was a wonderful host, I highly recommend you visit.
My stay at Laurie's was very comfortable and peaceful. The room is quiet and clean and access to the hot tub under the redwoods was a definite plus. I look forward to staying with Laurie on my next visit to the Bay Area and will recommend her to anyone I know who is looking for a room/sanctuary to stay in on a visit to Marin.
It does not get better than this - a house in the woods, peace, quiet, great host, open kitchen, fresh air, birds chirping in the morning. Highly recommended.
At Laurie's place we felt welcome instantly. Laurie provided accurate directions to her home and although we only stayed for one night but it was a very relaxing one. We we're happy that there was a small healthy breakfast and we think Laurie is a great host! Recommended.
