About the Property
Cottage is a studio, Carriage House a one bedroom with private deck.
SPRINGFIELD ONE BEDROOM APARTMENT AND DECK : (SEE NOTES in the RATES section)
The upper story of our carriage house, The Springfield, is a home we created for ourselves while we renovated the main house on the property. It is sophisticated yet warm and cozy at the same time. You will enjoy your privacy inside or on the deck, and can look out at the beautiful trees which surround the property. It will be your oasis in which to relax from the outside world, yet only a 5 minute walk (on level ground) to the center of Mill Valley. If you feel more adventurous, you can explore the majestic nature of Cascade Canyon or Mt. Tam which begins just down the block.
The apartment is composed of a living room, open kitchen, bedroom, bathroom with glass-tiled European shower which is beautifully lit by a diffused glass window in the shower, and a deck off the bedroom. The bedroom has a queen size bed, feathertop mattress, and the linens are 'second to none'. It is outfitted with wireless internet and a modern AV system which includes digital cable, flat screen TV, and DVD/CD player. The kitchen has a gas stove, large refrigerator, Nespresso coffee system. Parking is always available right in front of the house.
GARDEN COTTAGE STUDIO (lower cost):
Nestled into a lush, beautifully designed garden, flanked by cherry trees and a majestic fig tree, this garden cottage is the quintessential Mill Valley retreat for a visit to this gorgeous area. The front of the cottage features a cute porch that faces the garden. Inside, 'center stage' you will find an incredibly comfortable queen size bed with fabulous European sheeting. The carrera marble bathroom has a glass enclosed European (Hans Grohe) shower and its window faces the fig tree, just renovated to include the new heated marble floor, too. The kitchen area is small but well appointed with a large refrigerator, a four burner gas stove, and sink. You will also find a coffee machine for your morning java and a microwave for a quick meal. And there is a fabulous fire place perfect for cooler evenings curled up with a book.
A cute round mirror-topped bistro table with two chairs sits in front of a window facing the garden.
There are of course WiFi and cable TV.
Snuggled into the yummy sheets and surrounded by nature you might have your best sleep ever.

Mill Valley is becoming the hub of Southern Marin County, just a 10 minute drive across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco. It is known for its bounty of outdoor sporting trails and roads (hiking and biking) and has a lively art, restaurant and evening cultural events (Sweetwater, 142 Throckmorton) scene. Mill Valley hosts an annual international Film Festival each October. It is also a short drive or bicycle ride to West Marin and the Coast, including Stinson Beach, Bolinas and Point Reyes Station.
About the owner: We've lived on both coasts (NY and CA) and have been back in the San Francisco area for quite some time now. Mill Valley is a treasure but we love to travel (Europe, Asia and South America) to take in different cultures, meet people, and experience the local food, music, art, architecture and nature. This is a special location from which to explore the trails of Marin County or to drive a short distance to San Francisco, Berkeley or Napa Valley...and if you need suggestions don't hesitate to ask.
Why the Owner Chose Mill Valley, CA, USA:
This is one of Mill Valley's most unique properties with perhaps the best location possible. You can enjoy a lush garden filled with roses, dahlias, rhododendrons, camellias, and succulents that is screened by beautiful mature trees and still gets lots of direct sun. You will love being so close to downtown Mill Valley or the hiking trails, without being in the middle of it all.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
When you approach this property the first thing you notice is that while very conveniently located close to the center of Mill Valley, it has unusual privacy due to the lush landscaped gardens that surround the Cottage, Carriage House and our home. You're also just a few steps from the Dipsea stairs or other trails in Cascade Canyon. But, unlike Cascade Canyon, you can enjoy sunshine here because the majestic redwood trees are also just a few steps away from our property. We have taken our time over the past 8 years to meticulously renovate, decorate and landscape for comfort, beauty and enjoyment.
