About this listing
Sunny room with comfortable queen bed and sitting area. Rustic charming house is close to bus stop, town, hiking/biking trails. Easy access to SF by ferry or bus. Local books/maps on hiking and biking will help decide which of many places to visit---Muir Woods, Pt Reyes, Golden Gate Recreational Area, Mt Tam State Park, Angel Island.
Breakfast foods available. Use of well equipped kitchen. Please note that there is one bathroom in the house and it is shared. I can easily adjust my schedule to make sure guest have lots of time uninterrupted when needed.
The house is two blocks from quaint downtown San Anselmo with coffee shops, restaurants, bookstore and independent shops. Fairfax, a town with more music at night, is one mile west. Moving further on, the towns get smaller and the farm/ranch/open spaces get bigger. The Bear Valley visitor center at Pt Reyes is a 35 minute drive or you can take the West Marin Stage public transportation from the bus stop two blocks away.
You can also take the ferry from nearby Larkspur for a relaxing cruise to the Ferry Building in San Francisco and take BART or MUNI for an evening on the town.
This area can also be a base for trips to the wine country in Sonoma or Napa. The town of Sonoma is another 35 minutes away.
The bedroom room and sitting area. The garden with several places to sit. The kitchen in the morning---and space in the refrigerator. For longer visits or guest with special food needs, please ask me.
Washer and dryer are not for guest use. But ask me if you have some items to wash on a longer visit (or a spot you need to remove). We have a drought and I only wash when there is a full load.
Interaction with Guests
I try to find out what is comfortable.
Each guest situation is different. I am happy to talk about the area and its sights. And to bring out maps and books---or to leave them for guests choose.
There is a bus stop two blocks away.
Look for consideration on both parts. Breakfast foods will be available for guests to cook for themselves. Light kitchen use can be arranged as well. This house is small but there are many doors as in many vintage houses. These can be closed to reduce noise in most situations.
The expectation is for quiet time after 10:00 pm. Any exception to be discussed. Reasonable requests encouraged.
