'We stayed a few nights with Mark and Elizabeth, and all I can say is they are the best hosts ever. . .Our daughter loved the little playground next to the bakery, it was also a plus that Mark offered a stroller which we forgot at home. Every morning a hot breakfast was provided and it was delicious!'

About Mark Weiss

Sixteen years ago I fell in love with an abandoned restaurant with four tired cottages on three acres of wild blackberries and old growth redwoods on Austin Creek. It has been an exhausting/exhilarating labor of love that has enriched our lives in more ways than we ever imagined. We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we have!

Mark Weiss purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Mark Weiss chose Cazadero

Come stay with us and benefit from the tranquility and beauty of Austin Creek with majestic Old Growth redwoods towering above. Relax and unwind in our little corner of paradise.

Our Cottages are located on the grounds of award-winning Raymond’s Bakery. While you are here, you are welcome to enjoy an afternoon in the garden, take a stroll along Austin Creek, play bocce, relax under the gazebo or nap under the Gravenstein apple tree. In the evenings you can unwind by the campfire.

What makes this cottage unique

We own and are the bakers at Raymond's Bakery Bed & Breakfast just a three minute walk around the redwoods. So be ready for some gold-medal baked goodies to welcome you to our corner of paradise. We can also share the secrets of a few swimming holes and where to find the best skipping stones.

We loved every part of our stay at Raymond's Bakery, but especially the hospitality. Mark and his family are incredible people, and incredible hosts. We loved getting to be a part of the world he has created in Cazadero, and will certainly be back again, hopefully soon!

Although we ended up staying at a different property, we had an absolutely fabulous weekend. Thank you Mark for making our anniversary weekend so memorable! You were such a gracious host to invite us into your bakery party like we were old friends. We truly had an amazing time. Thank you!

My husband and I are expecting our frist child, and decided to go on a Babymoon. One of the places was here at elim Grove cottages, and we are so happy that we stayed here. Mark is an amazing person and was great company, and the food at Raymonds bakery was amazing.

We had a very relaxing time and would recommend staying here if you just want to get away.
