The town of Fairfax is a wonderful combination of boho arts, yoga, mountain bike riders,farmers market, lovers of good food and entertainment. We have two markets, one the "world famous" Good Earth natural food store. Our house is within walking distance of the town center on a closed road with minimal car traffic

2 bed rooms. (1 Queen and 1 single)

Large living room area.

Full bathroom.

Jr kitchen, we have a toaster oven,microwave, coffee and tea, so it's good for a little snack or breakfast.

We're located just 10 min walk to downtown Fairfax where there's lots of good food, bars with live music,yoga and possibly the best ice cream shop ever.

The bus stop is located right downtown so it's easy to catch a bus to the city, or a shuttle to the beach.

You'll also be located a 10 min walk from loads of hiking and mountain biking trails in Deer Park. If you're feeling energetic you can hike up to one of the five lakes nearby, or just drive 20 min up the hill.

Terrific, cozy home in beautiful Fairfax

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed here for a week, and it was perfect. Quiet neighbourhood, quiet home, and very comfortable. The owners are very kind, welcoming, and attentive to our needs (which weren't many/any, but they were immediately responsive with any questions we had). Teresa brought my daughter a very thoughtful gift, and it meant a lot to my daughter. Will definitely stay here again for an extended stay. Bonus: Fairfax is a wonderful town, with great food, shops, movie theatre, and people, and is a great place to base yourself to explore Marin/Sonoma/Napa, or to go into San Francisco or the East Bay. It's my favourite Marin County town.

Relaxing stay at cozy cottage in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the location of this cottage with all the redwoods and nearby trail. The cottage was cozy, inviting and clean. Our family of four stayed here comfortably, one of us in the pull out sofa. Our host was gracious, providing us with umbrellas on a rainy day and anything else we needed. We appreciated the coffee beans and coffee maker. We would have loved more time here. We visited Muir Woods and Beach and Mt Tam. Thank you, Teresa!

Cozy and great location

  • 4 of 5

My family had a great time there. It was walking distance to Fairfax. The place had all we needed. We had to keep fire and radiators on to keep it warm enough, but they did. The only thing strange was the bathroom. There is not a door on it so you have to keep the fan on so everyone can't hear everything in there and it was freezing in there. But it wouldn't stop us from staying there again.

We had the best time!

  • 5 of 5

We really had a wonderful time! This vacation was so relaxing and beautiful. This forest cottage was cozy and full of terrific surprises. Teresa made sure we were comfortable and if there was anything we needed just let her know! The kitchen was perfect for a nice breakfast, complete with coffeemaker, griddles, microwave, toaster oven and any other contraption you might need to mix up a big meal. The beds were comfy and there were plenty of blankets and quilts if we got chilly. We felt right at home and we were in awe of the peace and quiet of the woods. When we were ready we went for a walk and found the sweetest little town to visit about 10 minutes walking distance away. There were plenty of yummy places to eat and lots of shopping. We went to Muir Woods for our holiday but there are plenty of great things to do. The ferry to San Francisco is close by(about 4 miles). There are many parks and trails and lakes. Fairfax seems to be a place bicyclists congregate. We read our books and played backgammon and had long lovely conversations that lasted for hours. The perfect place. Thank you to Teresa! We had a fabulous time!
