About the property

Mid-Century Mountain Home with Breathtaking Views

A nature lover's dream....

The large windows of this rustic home look out on the San Francisco Bay and the trails of Mount Tam are literally right out your door. It's hard to believe that San Francisco is a mere 14 miles away when you wake up to deer in the garden and the smell of pine.

There's a large patio surrounding the property from which to enjoy the ever-changing vistas of San Francisco and Mt. Tam . And despite the mountain setting, it's only a mile drive down to the quaint Mill Valley town square.

This cozy artist's retreat is located at the head of a hiking trail which will take you as far as Stinson Beach (if you've got the energy) or as close as the little stream about half mile down the fire trail.

A large fireplace, terrazzo floors, eclectic antiques and interesting old books... It is very much a retreat whether you want to stay put & relax, sail or mountain bike, experience small town life in Mill valley or explore the many sights in San Francisco.

Sleeping: 2 bedrooms (1 king + 1 queen)


Fully Equipped kitchen

Ample parking (rare in this neighborhood)

Incredible views, peaceful location, and comfortable, charming home

  • 5 of 5

This property was incredible! The views are spectacular! Photos don't do them justice. We enjoyed sunrises and sunsets immensely! The house is like a time capsule of the sixties, but that is part of what makes it so special. The decor is unique and interesting. My husband and I traveled with another couple and each couple had their own comfortable bed and their own bathroom. It was perfect! We enjoyed all the sightseeing we did (Alcatraz, Yosemite tour, Lombard St., Painted Ladies, Golden Gate Bridge, Muir Woods), but wished we had one more day to just relax at the house. The owner was very accessible, friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this properly. We loved our stay!!

Peaceful getaway

  • 4 of 5

This is an older home full of charm and antique novelties in a serene peaceful environment. It was spacious and accommodating enough for two couples to enjoy comfortably although unfortunately it was unseasonably hot and the home lacks air conditioning. It's situated above the quaint but very expensive town of Mill Valley and just a few miles to Sausalito where we attended the annual Art Festival which is a must for those of you who appreciate art and live music. I would be very happy to stay here again, thank you again Susan for allowing us to stay at your home.

Beautiful house and incredible location

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house. Way up windy summit road perched below mt tams peak with views of the bay.. The house is largely unchanged from its 1950s era build a la Frank Lloyd Wright. Special place

Lovely spot

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful spot. Incredibly quiet, very clean. Great views of Sausalito and SF from one patio, and of Mt Tam from another. While the kitchen indeed is circa "mid century", I loved the layout, and found it to be very well supplied in terms of prep and serving materials. We had a lovely time.

Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

We went on a couples vacation to San Francisco & rented this home. After being out and about in the city/bay area with all of the people and traffic it was so nice to come back to this amazing quiet place. It is a short drive to Mill Valley from San Francisco & then up a few winding roads to the house. If you like retro & antiques, this is the place for you! When we were there, however, we spent most of our time outside which was amazing. The landscaping around the house is beautiful. In front there are great views of the bay and in back is beautiful Mt. Tam. We enjoyed watching the little hummingbirds & listening to the owl hoot at night. The bed in the master bedroom was a bit firm for our taste but the queen bed was very comfortable. It is a short drive to Muir Woods which was our favorite adventure of our trip (get there by 8:00 am to beat the crowds). Mill Valley is a quaint/lovely town. Stefanos & Tamalpie both had wonderful pizza. Thank you to Susan for sharing her home with us!
