Property description

Nestled in the coastal hills of Bolinas, on the Briarcombe property is the 'Cottage' .

Beautiful, elegant, artistic, serene, romantic, full of nature and private.

We are 1 minute away from HWY 1 on the outer edge of Bolinas and the northern tip of the Bolinas Lagoon facing the coastal hills. 10 minutes from Stinson Beach, 3 minutes from Bolinas Beach and 45 minutes from San Francisco. We are located in ' The good weather zone' in a really beautiful valley of birds, deer, oak trees, meadows, horses and gardens.

The cottage is an elegant, open space design with unobstructed views. There are 2 sleeping areas consisting of 2 queen size beds surrounded by windows. The kitchen is cozy but well supplied with appliances and everything you should need. The main deck looks out to the hills and is private and awe inspiring as is the whole 3&1/2 acre property. There are books, games, WiFi, stereo, satellite TV, playstation, telephone and barbeque out on the patio. There is also a basketball court surrounded by beautiful oak trees, not to mention a stage (with electrical) for events in the meadow.

Please check out the property video at the top. This was done before we added the gate house as a new listing. There are now 3 rentals on the property.

Events such as weddings, retreats or private parties can be held on this beautiful property which includes the main house. Please contact us for wedding & event rates.

In general, for weddings, the full property (house & cottage)must be rented for a minimum of two days with a separate wedding location fee of $3,000.00. Maximum number of guests is about 80, We can no longer have loud amplified music in the meadow. Acoustic music is welcome.

Please contact us for more pictures and information. Search for 'Briarcombe' on information regarding the main house.
