Sweet Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful stay at this beautiful cottage. It's an ideal location if you're looking for a place to escape near nature for relaxation and peace. It's near Mount Tamalpais State Park which offers several nearby hiking trails. It's also within Mill Valley which has several cute and delicious shops and restaurants nearby. It's a decent drive into the city/SF for more adventures if you're in the mood to mix up your trip. Katie (cottage owner) was a pleasure to communicate with - very sweet. Highly recommend.

Great location and cozy accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Mill Valley! The cottage is beautiful, and Katy was a very gracious host! We really enjoyed the downtown Mill Valley area too (great restaurants and shopping), and the proximity to Muir Woods was ideal. The cottage is well equipped and spacious for two couples, and the grounds of the property reminded me of a well maintained park. We would definitely stay here again!

Lovely cottage! Perfect place to stay when visiting San Francisco

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five had a delightful stay at this sweet cottage. It is impeccably clean, well appointed and comfortable. We especially enjoyed Mill Valley, and we were very happy we stayed here instead of in the city. We did drive into San Francisco to tour around and this cottage is conveniently located so this was a breeze. I highly recommend staying at this lovely cottage.

Great little house close to town

  • 5 of 5

Was perfect for our needs as the couple got the bedroom and my friend and I slept on the daybeds just outside for the bedroom. Probably wouldn't be ideal for 2 couples, but great for kids, as the days beds were in a living space and not a separate room. Cottage was very cute on a nice property just a bit outside of downtown.
