About This Listing
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.
After having laptop, phone, camera, passport stolen in Oakland (bad crime rate; middle of the day, packed Walmart car park; bag on back seat. Do NOT leave any bag in view on a seat in a car) I was pretty shaken up and annoyed. I've re-thought my feelings about America in general, and now have far less trust in the US in general. Business meetings were cancelled and will remain so.
So - with that as a backdrop, Linda offered me her laptop to help find details of the embassy and sorting other items. I am enormously grateful to her for providing an environment to help sort everything out. The nook itself is lovely, as is the surrounding countryside. Both she and her husband were wonderful!
Linda and her husband were very kind and accommodating. They made sure we got in safely and had everything we needed.
The nook is cozy. Small but has everything you need. The estate is lovely with a little pond and lots of greenery.
The on,y thing you should know is that you will need a car to get around and are a little while away from wine country. That being said, the drive was stunning (although a little too windey for night time drives).
Linda's nook in Lagunitas was a fantastic find! If you are visiting family in the San Geronimo valley as we were, this cozy cabin is for you. It's just like the photos and the description. It has everything you need, and the light from all the windows and skylights is beautiful. Thanks, Linda!
We had an amazing stay at this beautiful location. Linda and her husband were so kind and welcoming and the place was gorgeous and super close to great hiking. Definitely recommend it!
About the Host, Linda
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.
