Cozy Lagunitas Nook

Cabin - Entire home/apt · Sir Francis Drake Blvd, Lagunitas-Forest Knolls, CA 94938, United States

The Space

This is a studio in a private hideout in Lagunitas, next to the main house. The property is situated in a gorgeous valley full of redwood trees and flora. It is separated from the main road by a small creek, with a walking bridge connecting the home to the carport though a password protected gate. Trees, flowers, and ferns populate the yard, bringing in little birds, dragonflies, and frogs. We recently built a pond with lots of fish. Hopefully very soon we'll have some turtles in there as well.

The studio has an extra-long full-sized bed, 2 lounge chairs, a TV, and plenty of closet space. It's equipped with a small kitchenette with a small refrigerator, convection oven, sink, and 2 burners. The bathroom has a fully functional shower. At night you can see the stars from the comfort of the bed through the skylights.

Stepping outside the studio, you'll see a lounge area with comfortable blue chairs, and the chicken coop with our hens (all named after famous female singers. We'll introduce you, if you'd like!). Beyond the fire pit is the creek. We have a little island where you can climb down and observe the salmon swim upstream, and the crawdads fight one another for their ladies honor.

We are located within a 5 minute drive to Spirit Rock, 30 minutes to Stinson Beach, and about 45 minutes to San Francisco. There are lots of places to go hiking and swimming around here, and it's a great area for biking.

As far as media entertainment options, the studio does have a TV with premium cable, and we offer free wifi.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We adored Linda's place, the Lagunitas Nook! The scenery just outside the cottage's front door was gorgeous, and crossing the beautiful bridge over the quiet stream every time we returned made us feel like we were in a private, magical place. Morning greetings from penned up chickens was a treat. The space inside the nook was a perfect size for two, with rustic, comfortable decor. It was a quick drive to all the wonders of Marin county and we loved having such a great base (and fabulous and thoughtful hosts) for launching our adventures. Linda sent us an exhaustive list of suggestions for places to go when we arrive and we took many of them!

  • Charming little cabin... Very clean & stocked with everything you need. Beautiful grounds, sweet chickens, and a great location. Linda was warm, let us check in early. While we crossed paths with her, the unit is very quiet and private. Delicious Indian food down the road. Got it to go & enjoyed under the trees on our patio. The unit is a good size for two people. We brought our two year old & on the rainy day he was climbing the walls! Best for one or two.

  • Linda, her husband, and adorable dog were all so incredibly welcoming. Their cottage was extremely romantic and they were so kind in advising us where to eat. Highly recommended for a quick drive north from the city to getaway for the weekend! Will definitely visit again :)

  • The nook was a fantastic destination for a quick weekend getaway. The property is comfortable and tranquil, and Linda was delightful to coordinate with.

  • My wife and I loved this little place! It is perfectly situated to explore the entire Point Reyes area. It is small and compact, but the skylights and windows make it feel nice and airy. We were here for a week and didn't feel cramped at all. I was able to do a lot of cooking in the kitchenette. It is well laid out for a small space and comes well supplied with basic pots, pans and cooking utensils. Robert and Linda were great hosts. The gave us fresh eggs from their chickens and had lots of advice for activities in the area. We can't wait to come back!

  • Lagunitas Nook was super cozy and as described. Friendly hosts made sure we found their place easily (somewhat) on a dark & stormy night. Crossing the creek to get 'home' each day was a nice experience. Recommended!

  • Our cozy stay in Lagunitas was a little dampened by the rain, but Linda's place was a terrific place to be "stuck" inside. Comfortable, clean, and functional, very nice experience!

  • My boyfriend and I had a lovely time at Linda's place. It was quiet, clean and had everything we needed. Linda was thoughtful, welcoming and responsive. The close proximity to Pt Reyes Station, Inverness and many great hiking trails was ideal. It was the perfect weekend getaway!

  • A wonderful, magical wee place. Linda was a very welcoming host. Hope we get to come back for a longer stay!

  • This was one of the most wonderful Airbnb stay that my husband have ever had! The place was absolutely perfect! We love to cook on our trips, and the little kitchen was perfect for all of our cooking needs. Linda and her husband even lent us some of their butter and jam! The entire property is gorgeous, with the bridge and stream underneath. The best part is definitely stargazing at night--it was absolutely breathtaking! It's a short drive to Point Reyes and other hiking sites. The bed was quite comfortable, and the Nook itself was a wonderful quiet retreat site if you're feeling a bit agoraphobic. Would definitely come back again!

Hello, I'm a long time resident of Lagunitas, a gardener, a beekeeper (my bee hives are down the street, not here on the property), and a green build professional. I'm looking forward to meeting folks from all over the world. I've hiked all over the Valley and can show you the best trails.
