Designed and built by Sam (product designer/sculptor) for our visiting east coast parents, our backyard cottage is modern, stylish, cozy and private. Our family-friendly neighborhood is right on the border of Berkeley and North Oakland, and very convenient to Rockridge shops(10 minute walk), the Berkeley Bowl (7 minutes), and Ashby Bart (5 minutes, if that!). We think you'll find our sunny cottage a clean, comfy welcoming place to stay when you visit Oakland or Berkeley.
The cottage has a queen bed and bathroom with shower. There is a microwave, small fridge and electric teakettle. My mom liked to have the place at a nice toasty 85 degrees, and it's very well insulated.
Sorry No dogs other than ours!
My neighborhood is very family friendly, and there are several nice cafes within a couple blocks (Nomad Cafe and Sweet Adeline) . The cottage has it's own deck and chairs, if you want to bring your coffee back and have it outside under the giant Japanese Maple.
Sam and Mittie are happy to help with suggestions or ideas if you need us, but also happy to give you privacy.

A backyard cottage just like Mittie's is my ideal kind of place to stay whenever i visit the East Bay. I feel lucky to now know about it. I loved sitting outside my room at night while feeling perfectly safe. The location couldn't be better and Mittie was very gracious and accommodating. Highly recommend!
From reservation to saying goodbye, our stay in Mittie's cozy cottage was perfect. My husband and I stayed five nights while visiting his daughter and touring. The location is convenient and safe, on a quiet, residential street, walking distance to a couple of cafés and to Ashby BART. Parking was never a problem for us.
There is side gate access to the backyard cottage, which is such a pretty setting, where I enjoyed one afternoon reading and having tea in the natural garden.
The interior of the cottage is welcoming, very clean, bright and well lit, has a high pitched ceiling, curtained windows that work, and is very nicely appointed with ample shelves, a table and chairs, loveseat microwave and mini fridge, and a cabinet with cups, bowls, glasses and plates. We enjoyed the teas and coffee each morning. While there is no closet, it was convenient to hang a couple of plastic hangers from the bookshelf, and there was a suitcase rack provided.
Like the rest of the cottage, the bathroom is exceptionally clean, stocked with fluffy towels and a bench/shelf to put toiletries.
The bed is wonderfully comfy and the bedding is delightful and plentiful. The portable heater was welcome for taking the chill off the room but we did not need it through the night because the bed was so cozy.
Mittie made us feel at home, providing privacy while ensuring us that she was just a knock or phone call away. She and I made contact by text...so convenient. If I lived there full time, I would be happy to have Mittie as a neighbor, she is just that nice to be around.
Cozy quiet cottage and a very friendly and hospitable hostess. I had a very good one night stay. There are coffee shops very nearby that you can easily walk to. I also walked to Rockridge College Avenue which is a bit further away.
My husband and I had a great time staying in Mittie's cozy cottage. The location is incredible--very close to the Ashby BART station and easy to jump on the expressway in all directions. Great comfortable bed and lovely garden right outside.
Mittie was quick to respond and very nice upon meeting. The accommodations were as described: quaint, cozy, and comfortable. We would stay again, if in the area.
Another great experience at Mittie's. I always have a comfortable and peaceful stay here. Thank you Mittie!
Beautiful Cottage. Private and Quiet. Will come back again! Thanks Mitte :)
Mittie's cottage is perfect! Exactly as pictured in a quiet yet accessible neighborhood. I would definitely recommend and would stay there again in a heartbeat.
The cottage was perfect; very clean and cozy . . . Mittie respond quickly to our last minute request and welcomed us warmly. Highly recommend this sweet little spot. It's nice and quiet, but close to everything.
