Guestbook comments from the manager

Good morning Kelly ~

Sorry this is so late, but I wanted to thank you again for sharing your magical Muir home!! It was even more beautiful than we could have imagined! Doing a fare amount of traveling and renting houses for most of our trips, your home managed to surpass all the others we have rented in location, comfort and attention to detail! The book you left with info (dr's #'s!!!) and menus ~ was a Godsend and we checked in with it a few times! The kitchen and laundry room were one of the best stocked I've ever come across! I love to cook and so to have great appliances, pots, pans, spices, etc. is a blessing! The bedrooms were super comfy and the whole place was immaculate (unfortunately rare!) In short, WE LOVED staying at Muir Cottage and need to go back again!!!

Thank you again!

Peace. Joy. Love

great property in great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our visit and this was a perfect location. In the woods which was nice and cool on some very hot days. The grandkids had a great time outside playing around the redwoods and nearby. We felt well cared for.

Enchanting cottage experience in a quaint town!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Creekside Cottage over Spring break with our two little boys and a couple of extended family members. The location and the ambiance of and from the cottage is simply stellar. Ton of great walks and hikes from the cottage itself including and not limited to Cascade Falls and up to the Mountain Home Inn (where we had a well deserved lunch). Easy walk to the center of town for some nice dining options including decent Indian food at Prabs, casual American dining at Bungalow 44, Beerworks, Playa (Mexican), etc. The house itself is well furnished with plenty of room for 4 adults and 2 kids and stocked with books and games for a family. It is bright with skylights in virtually all the rooms and as its best part, one can always lean to hear the sounds of nature including the creek that goes all around it. Kelly, the owner was very responsive and accommodating. Will hope to stay at this beautiful place again.

total tranquility

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful! The sound of the babbling creek to lull you to sleep each night and wake up to each morning and views of the lush green surroundings out every window. We were blessed to have perfect weather for our stay and the accommodations were great for our family (we took our 2 young adult kids and their spouses). The master bed was wonderful and the kitchen was well equipped. A little sad that the hammock was not available but plenty of seating on the deck and in the yard area. This is such a beautiful area to walk and explore, and it is an absolute perfect driving distance to San Francisco and the Napa area. Would recommend Creekside Cottage and would love to revisit!

Beautiful, Cozy Hideaway in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

After a trying personal journey over the last couple years, my family was looking for a place to just get away from it all. This special home did not disappoint! Wonderfully and luxuriously appointed, hidden away amidst majestic redwoods, situated next to a delightful creek, just a short walk to downtown Mill Valley...this place was exactly what the doctor ordered.

For those of you with young children, it's no small blessing that the trappings of civilization are just a short drive or an app away. Food, groceries, last minute supplies...everything is right here! But the amazing thing is that when you're in the house, you really feel like you're in your own private, meditative, peaceful place. It's truly like having the best of both worlds. And meanwhile, aside from the TV, the media room is also stocked with board games, books, toys - all manner of ways to stay entertained and have fun as a family!

In short, we've absolutely loved our time here, and we're already plotting for when we can come back. Thank you for having us!
