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, flora and fauna. 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.
We had a great time! The place is right on a river, and close to all kinds of nature from beautiful woods to rolling hills to beautiful seashore. The house was perfect for the two of us. We enjoyed the hens also. We had as much privacy as we wanted, and we enjoyed meeting one of the hosts, who told us about some of the surrounding areas where we could ride our bikes. We would definitely recommend this spot.
Wonderful cottage. Both Linda and Robert were very helpful. Cottage was clean and the setting was very private.
Linda was so wonderful and helpful - not only was she available to share advice/tips the whole weekend, she was also kind enough to send us tips in advance of our stay and made the key exchange a smooth, easy process. The space was exactly as described, and was the perfect home base for adventures in the area.
We loved staying in the cozy nook! It was a perfect place to relax after a long day of hiking. Great location for outdoor activity and close enough to Point Reyes Station and Fairfax for some more food options. Linda was very welcoming and accessible, but also gave us plenty of privacy. The place was very neat and clean.
Robert greeted us when we arrived. He made sure to ask if we had any needs, if we wanted to know about paths nearby to walk and to contact him if we had any questions at all...no issue too small. Both Linda and Robert are easy to talk with and very friendly and helpful. The cottage was nicely arranged, an additional portable heater was brought in against the cold, the wifi signal was strong and reliable, dishes and silverware were adequate, etc. Overall, accommodations were plentiful, and the stay was as comfortable and pleasant as can be.
I had a wonderful time staying in Linda's listing! It was very clean and beautiful and peaceful. I would definitely go back.
The Cozy Lagunitas Nook is indeed cozy, and cute too. There were wonderful little details all over the property, like the colorful lights on the bridge and charming crescent moon in the bathroom. Linda was great with communications, and so nice, giving us a tour of her apiaries and chicken coop. The Nook was super clean, and the bed was really comfortable. It was a great location for hiking in Samuel Taylor Park, and a beautiful drive to hikes in Point Reyes - we would totally stay here 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.
