About the property

1921 cottage in the woods

Our cozy 1921 cottage apartment is located in a quiet neighborhood beneath 19 200 foot redwood trees. In Fairfax, you're not too far from anything!

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

You'll have your front entrance & front deck.

2 bed rooms. (1 Queen and 1 single)

Large living room area.

Full bathroom.

Gas Fireplace

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.

Guest access

You'll have access to the whole front cottage, with your own private entrance w/o passing through. We live in the back of the house through the back gate. We have chickens and a dog that roam around in the yard so we ask that you not open the back gate. There is plenty of free parking down the street.

Interaction with guests

If you're independent, that's cool. If you would like recommendations about what to do in the area, where to eat, etc. we're happy to chat. We're usually home and or available on our cell phones.

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.

Great Location, Private and Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at the cottage was wonderful. The cottage was very clean and ready for us when we arrived. Teresa gave a very comprehensive and thorough tour and made sure that all of our needs were being met, even to the point of leaving a friend's home roasted coffee for our enjoyment. The charm of this place is unbeatable and it is extremely comfortable. Do not look for televisions to occupy your time as there aren't any in the cottage, so make sure you have plans to get out and enjoy some time in the surrounding areas, or have great, long conversations on the deck...which is what we did! My only complaint is about the parking. If you have a very large vehicle, there really isn't a great place to park it. The street parking is not reliable near the house and you cannot park on the street by the house due to it being a fire road. Otherwise, it was a really wonderful end to our trip down the coast of Oregon and California!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review I really enjoyed having you stay and hope your dad had a blast I go to great length to ensure a parking spot for my guests in giving up my only spot on the property to my guests I'm sorry you could not manoeuvre the truck to park there Our contractor who has the same truck had no issues with fitting in the spot and I did move the truck that I parked across the street to accommodate you we are on a dead end street with only five more houses up the street then trails sorry you had to knock off a star for that Parking is always at a premium in the bay area I always provide a parking spot for my guests

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!
