Great little cottage
This cottage was fantastic -- great location, super clean, fully stocked with cooking equipment, easy check in, and a wonderful stay. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a great getaway in Marin.
Cynthia's Mill Valley Garden Cottage was perfect! It was clean, welcoming and cozy, perfect for our night away from city life. Cynthia was a wonderful host, providing essentials (towels, cooking tools, coffee, tea, etc.) and providing reading materials and maps for the surrounding area, which was very helpful since we wanted to hike around Muir Woods. Thank you Cynthia! We have raved about your place to our friends and will definitely return another time!
Cynthia's cottage in Mill Valley is Adorable.
We loved calling it our home for the weekend ... Cozy and convenient!
It's a really charming place and we will definitely stay there again.
I booked Cynthia's cottage for two colleagues who travelled to San Francisco/Mill Valley for a work retreat. They absolutely loved it and raved about it for days afterward. The cottage was adorable and very clean, and also tucked into a cozy, beautiful neighborhood. Communication with Cynthia was very friendly, warm, clear and concise, which is always a bonus! She was especially accommodating to me when, at the last minute. Thank you for a wonderful experience!
Every inch of this cottage is absolutely adorable. The pictures are true to the space. The best part is that I felt inspired to write there. I wish I could have stayed longer to get more writing done. Thank you, Cynthia for a great stay. I look forward to coming back.
Really nice little place to stay, about 20 mins walk from Mill Valley down town. Perfect for us as we were hiking and biking all weekend.
Clean and stocked with everything we needed. Cute chickens in the back yard! Fun cottage style decoration. Would stay again
Great little place in a super quaint little area - and not too far from the city. Loved my stay. Highly recommend!
Thank you for the wonderful stay at your adorable cottage. It exceeded our expectations! The property was great! We also really appreciated the directions that you left for the wedding we were too attend. Thank you so much! If we are in mill valley again, we will definitely reach out to you!

I would give this place a solid four star based on the cottage alone. The cottage itself was very clean, organized and cute. Overall, no complaints regarding the place itself. Everything was fine until our last night, which happened to be on the night before labor day. the host had a dinner gathering that went beyond 9pm and finished around 1130pm. My complaint regarding this was that the party/gathering was in the shared backyard and we can hear all the loud conversations after 9pm. I would have looked pass this matter had the host informed us ahead that she would be having guests over till late hours. Similarly, as i have mentioned to the host that i will be having an toddler staying with us, therefore i have informed her about our situation and gave her notice. From my experience with people of different cultural backgrounds, past 9pm usually means quiet time, which in this case was not.
I was expecting a quiet and peaceful weekend to escape the busy city life and I was very dissappointed that this had to happen.
Bottom line, i want to give it 2 stars because of the surprised late party but the place itself was immaculate and very nice. So i am giving it a solid 3 star overall.
