Located in the lower level of a three-story 1919 Late Victorian cottage, with a separate gated entry court yard garden, this charming, spacious one-bedroom suite is 729 SF-almost three times as large as a typical hotel room-and can sleep 4 comfortably. It is less than a two minute walk to the Mill Valley Plaza and Depot, Sequoia Theatre/Mill Valley Film Festival and Mill Valley Outdoor Art Club, less than a three minute walk to City Hall, three coffee houses, twenty restaurants and popular Mill Valley Market (Grocery, Produce and Meat Departments, Delicatessen, Wine and Spirits and Ready-to-Eat Foods) and easy walking distance to 142 Throckmorton Theatre [Live entertainment including dramatic and musical theatre, comedy, jazz, classical concerts, cabaret, dance and youth performances], legendary Sweetwater Music Hall, the Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival and Mill Valley Library.
Situated in Mill Valley's best weather area, the rental suite location is ideally suited for: (1) Vacations; (2) Family or guest holiday visits; (3) Business travel; (4) Extended stays due to re-location or house-hunting; (5) Temporary housing due to home construction, alterations or additions and (6) Close proximity for reception or party preparation at Mill Valley Outdoor Art Club.
Mill Valley is a picturesque California town of 14,000 residents and creative hideaway situated on the eastern slope of Mount Tamalpais. Nestled among redwoods, hills and canyons, Mill Valley is only ten minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge and City of San Francisco, yet less than one hour from Sonoma and Napa Wine Country.
What sets Historical Mill Valley apart is not just the spectacular physical beauty of its setting, but equally its human environment-uniquely combining tranquility and liveliness, privacy and community involvement, urban sophistication and village charm. Starting in 1905 with The Dipsea Race, the first cross-country race in the country, Mill Valley has a rich cultural tradition with the Mountain Play in 1913, the Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival in 1957, the Marin Theatre Company, a professional regional theatre in 1966, the Mill Valley Film Festival in 1978 and the 142 Throckmorton Theatre recently revived, although in existence since 1915. Re-opened in February 2012, after a lengthly absence, is the Sweetwater Music Hall located in the remodeled Masonic Hall and located two blocks from the Rental.
Mill Valley is flanked by the picturesque City of Sausalito, 10 minutes south and the Town of Tiburon 10 minutes east with Angel Island State Park only a one mile ride (via Angel Island-Tiburon Ferry), all on San Francisco Bay. Although Mill Valley is close to San Francisco, it is adjacent to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and only 10 minutes to the Muir Woods National Monument and Tennessee Valley Trail head, 20 minutes to Muir Beach, or Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, 30 minutes to Stinson Beach and less than an hour to Point Reyes National Seashore.
Although one recommends longer stays, Mill Valley is only a 2-1/2 hour day trip to Monterrey and Carmel and four hours to spectacular Lake Tahoe or Yosemite National Park; Yosemite Valley should be on your 'bucket list' and, especially during late spring, one of the most beautiful places in the world.
