About this home

This newly remodeled 800 sq ft. cottage features a living room with a gas fireplace, open kitchen layout, 1 bedroom with Queen size bed and a loft with a Full size bed. 5 sets of French doors and a large skylight make the cottage light and bright. The cottage is in a "park-like" setting on 1 1/2 acres up on Mt Tamalpais. It is private and quiet and feels like you are worlds away, yet SF is about a 30 minute drive down Panoramic Highway. The quaint town of Mill Valley is about a 12 minute drive down the hill. Muir Beach, Muir Woods and Stinson Beach are all within about a 15-20 minute drive. Hiking trails and biking trails are available right out the front door of the cottage. A gas barbecue and outdoor eating area are available outside on the deck that wraps around the home. Mill Valley has many fabulous restaurants and boutiques to explore. Sonoma Valley is about 30 minutes away and Napa Valley is about an hour's drive.
Please be aware that the road leading to the property is winding and narrow but once you get there you won't want to leave because it is so extraordinary!

Also, please note that the loft is not suitable for children under the age of 8 as it requires climbing up a vertical ladder.



Please note that this home will be professionally managed starting August 1, 2021 and owners will be handing off day to day duties to the manager. All messages and responses including requests to book should be immediate and you will have a near 24/7 contact person during your stay.

    Enchanted Forest

    Close your eyes and imagine your "Happy Place". Staying in this beautiful , bright cottage in the middle of a redwood forest, watching the fog roll in over the tall trees, the sweet smells of the forest, the sound of the wind blowing though the trees above, the kaleidoscope of shades of green with the sun peaking thru an open spot , a family of deer grazing on wild blackberries, and a real wood fire in the fireplace on a cool evening! This is my new "Happy Place" ! Once you park your car you will not want to leave! You follow a beautiful path and finally see the cottage enveloped in nature! Numerous trails surround the area from the forest floor to the mountain tops with views of the bay to the east and ocean to the west. The cottage itself has all of the modern conveniences of home, a well stocked kitchen, outdoor grill, and cable tv. You can even binge watch your favorite Netflix if you have a home account. The reservation process was easy , and hosts Steve and Marilyn provided great communication throughout our visit. Thank you! Can't wait to come back to this paradise!

    Even with the soggy rainy week this cottage made our trip!

    The property itself is absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately, the weekend we stayed was very rainy and cold, but staying at the cottage with the warm crackling fire and movies helped us make the most of the soggy weekend. When the rain cleared, my young kids 7 and 9 had so much fun just playing outside and exploring beneath the massive redwoods. The property was a perfect base camp to go to Muir Woods and Point Reyes.

    This cottage is absolutely perfect!

    Marilyn's cottage is flawless with an incredibly convenient location no matter what you're looking to do. Easy walk to drop into the Muir Woods or hike along the Dipsea trail to Stinson Beach. Short drive down to Mill Valley for dinner or supplies and a quick 30 minute car ride gets you into downtown. The space itself is cozy and homey without being too cluttered. Plenty of amenities if you want to cook, wood for the fire and our two kids loved the sleeping loft. All in all a great place that we'll look to return to again.

    Very cozy and quiet stay close to San Francisco

    Very nice cottage in the mill valley woods. We stayed here while visiting San Francisco. It costs an half hour to get to the city, but that's fine! The charming house has all the comfort you need and is very relaxing when coming back from a busy day in the city. Mill valley and Sausalito are very nice to visit as well! We would come back here when visiting the city!

    Treehouse Getaway

    We enjoyed every aspect of our 4-day stay! The location is a dream if you are looking for the smell of redwoods, fog blowing through the trees, amazing hikes in all directions, and a feel of seclusion and quiet but with loads to do. You will follow a windy road and it is a bit hidden, but Marilyn's directions are perfect. The place is lovely inside and Marilyn was always quick with responses to our questions. We took many of her suggestions and they resulted in wonderful experiences. We would absolutely stay here again!
