Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5+)
As your summer plans take shape, please note that there is a 3-night minimum stay during June, July and August. Thanks!
Lolo's Cottage is the ideal destination for your coastal getaway... Situated along a gorgeous stretch of Tomales Bay, just an hour’s drive from the Golden Gate Bridge and Wine Country. The setting is sublime and amenities abound.
Curl up in the window seats to watch the changing light on the bay. Or dine on the dock at sunset and watch the cormorants dive for their own dinners.
We have everything you need for a comfortable stay. The kitchen is fully equipped for gourmet cooking and we provide complimentary breakfast fixings and all the cooking basics. Just bring your ingredients and you're ready to cook.
Each of the three bedrooms has its own design and color theme and the luxury of down comforters. In addition there is a pack 'n play for families with infants.
I provide an Insider's Guide to area activities and restaurants to help in your trip planning. The Cottage is a 5-minute walk to Hog Island Oyster Co and a 10-minute walk to the Marshall Store & Deli.
We offer high-speed wireless internet connection, and a CD player. There is no TV. However feel free to play any of our DVDs on your own computer. There are lots of board games for your use.

West Marin is known for its exceptional restaurants, many featuring Tomales Bay seafood, local artisan cheeses and organic ingredients. Did I mention the bakeries? There are three...all are scrumptious! Art galleries, boutique shopping and a fabulous spa are memorable destinations during your visit—all within a short drive.
Kayak adventures launch just 1/4 mile from the cottage…explore the inlets and secluded western shores of the Pt. Reyes peninsula. Harbor seals often swim alongside your kayak in the winter and spring seasons!
1/4 mile in the other direction and you'll find Hog Island Oyster Company, offering BBQ facilities and freshly harvested Tomales Bay oysters. Beaches, hiking, biking and equestrian trails abound at Point Reyes National Seashore and nearby State Parks.
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: Two things to know about us: the first is we love the outdoors. We ride horses on the trails with kindly mounts from a local stable and ride bikes throughout the Tomales Bay area. We walk and hike the trails and love the surprises that come with each season: a swath of lupine on a spring-green hillside; ospreys feeding their chicks in their pole-top nest, low-tide walks that reveal anemones, star fish, fan kelp and tiny crabs usually hidden by high water. The second thing to know is that we love to eat. Fresh seafood and locally grown organic foods are available year 'round. Just-harvested oysters are a 5-minute walk from our front gate and the area's restaurants merit several stars with varied cuisines and the freshest seasonal ingredients...Heaven!
Why the Owner Chose Marshall, CA, USA:
We'd been visiting the Point Reyes area for decades-- family day trips to the beaches and hiking trails and getaway weekends just for ourselves. We always dreamed of our own home in the area, but it was rare to hear of properties for sale... so it remained just a dream. When the opportunity for this magical bayside cottage came up, we jumped at the chance and have been been delighted with our decision ever since. It's been 12 years and the WOW hasn't worn off. We're delighted to share it with you!
