About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

We are sorry, but currently the Retreat in the Redwoods is undergoing renovations and not ready to rent. Once available, w will only take reservations via TEXT messages or email directly to the owner 415-66-7387, or Please do not call the owner.

One available, we will update our listing with all the upgrades that we have made.

Have your own private room and share this amazing custom 3500 square foot home in San Geronimo Valley located in the AMAZING West Marin redwoods! Somewhat like a bed and breakfast... without the breakfast! The house is completely furnished, including your room with contemporary furnishings. There are typically 2 rooms to choose from, the Harmony Room and the Tranquility Room. Both rooms have lovely redwood views and provide two 100% organic Turkish cotton bathrobes for your use and enjoyment while visiting.

The Harmony room is furnished in dark plums and browns with ivory accents. It has a nature / trees / floral motif (and yet not feminine looking) ... It has a queen sized bed with memory foam pad and feather comforter, heating blanket, nightstands, 2 dressers, cable TV, stereo, new refrigerator, new microwave, new coffee maker, closet and a chair. It is great for people that might be staying longer, for there is more clothing storage. This is a beautiful room with art of orchids and magnolia blooms.

The Tranquility room is furnished in sunset colors of rusts and purples, with a sailing motif (and yet not masculine looking) ... It has a queen sized bed with memory foam pads, heating blanket, fluffy comforter, nightstands, TV, stereo, a butcher block table and 3 stools for eating / computer use / studying. It has a mini kitchen including a refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven and hot plate. It is great for people that might want to come up for the weekend or a week or two, for it is more self contained and may suit someone or a couple that wants to retreat without as much interaction with others in the house.

The large kitchen facilities are available for all to use. Also shared is the entry and public areas of the house. (Living room with fireplace, dining room, breakfast room, laundry, kitchen, hot tub and decks)

We provide a lending library of DVD movies to suit almost any taste and there is cable TV throughout,

The hot tub is located just behind the house and is only about 5 years old. It is the perfect place to get a jet massage while enjoying the redwood forest.

Oh, and last but not least... "Must Love Dogs". Pets are welcome; as long as they are 4 legged and bark (as opposed to meow)and you have prior approval from us. We have 2 dogs already at the house, Hansel (a miniature american eskimo mix) and Tasha (a Tibetan Terrier) are both loving rescued shelter and humaine society dogs.

This is a magical place that we call home, and we share it only to loving people that appreciate the beauty and wilderness that only the San Geronimo redwood valley can provide.

The Master Bedroom is the addition to make a full house rental when available.


Hot tub with a view of the redwood forest by day, and starry sky by night.

There is a heated dog room with a dog door and fenced yard.

There is plenty of parking.

Activities and Attractions:

San Geronimo Valley is close to Fairfax... and Point Reyes Station... in West Marin. It is a 45 minute drive to San Francisco, 20 minute drive to San Rafael, 15 minute drive to Point Reyes Station, 10 minute drive to Fairfax, 5 minute drive to Samuel P. Taylor State Park.

Dining / Entertainment: The Two Bird Cafe is in walking distance from the house. It offers home cooked gourmet breakfast, lunch and dinner with a wonder wine selection. In a short drive over the "hill", you will be in Fairfax, the home of great restaurants, shopping, Movie Theater, Iron Springs Brewery, live music, and farmers market during the summer. San Rafael is just a bit further which offers even more dining, shopping, theaters, and a downtown-wide farmers market during the summer on Thursday nights with entertainment, gifts and children's rides.

Hiking: The house is situated in a park like setting on 1.5 acres of redwoods. It backs up to 1600 acres of wilderness with hiking and equestrian trails nearby. There is a seasonal creek that runs through the side area...and the Papermill creek running nearby where you can still watch the Coho and steelhead spawning. It is a bit out in the country... but that is what we love about it! There are hundreds of miles of hiking in the shadow of Mount Tamalpais.

Biking: Marin is the birthplace of the mountain bike, with miles and miles of open terrain to discover. There are 2 mountain bikes that are available to use (must have bike shoes). Street biking is also very poplar here, and many local coffee stands and pastry shops cater to touring bikes.

Boating: The house has 2 river kayaks to borrow and a hobie cat sailboat. There are a few places to take them locally, let us know when booking if this may be of interest to you so that they can ready upon your arrival!

Beaches: Point Reyes, Bolinas and Stinson Beach are all fairly close

Golf: The world class 18 hole San Geronimo Valley Golf Course is right across the street! It is open to the public, with a clubhouse restaurant for breakfast and lunch, and some dinners.

Local parks: Samuel P. Taylor State Park, Mount Tamalpais State Park, Point Reyes National Seashore, Muir Woods National Monument

We are happy to share our tour books, dog park books, hiking and biking trail maps and give recommendations for day trips.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Trey and I met 17 years ago sailing and share our love for the outdoors, and all activities associated with it. We love hosting in our home, and have met so many beautiful people from all parts of the world through doing this.

Why the Owner Chose San Geronimo, CA, USA:
Trey and I purchased the home to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The moment you drive over the mountain into the San Geronimo Valley, you are immediatly drawn to the country ways, horses, cattle, deer... and of course the beauty of the valley! We live on the property and enjoy coming home to a vacation every day.... life is great out here! Close enough to civilization, but a feeling of being in the middle of nature. I have always enjoyed going to gausthouses in Austria while growing up, so i wanted to do the same here. It is somewhat like a bed and breakfast, however... much more affordable... because with the full kitchen available to all.... I do not provide breakfast!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have been told that the favorite thing at our property is waking up in the extremely comfortable beds to the large picture window within the redwoods. It has been descibed many times as like waking up in a treehouse. People love to sleep in here, and just relax. Hiking and exploring come in a close second to favorite activities!
