'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.

Mark makes everyone feel like a personal guest
Mark makes everyone feel like a personal guest of the family, really nice overnight get-a-away for me and my kids
Nice place to stay
We enjoyed our mini family vacation in Elim Grove Cottage. Mark is a generous and friendly host who made us feel at home, and am amazing baker! Multiple kinds of fresh bread from the oven for breakfast was a treat, along with eggs, yogurt, and fruit. The bed was also very comfortable, there was a separate little bedroom for our kiddo, a beautiful creek to play in, and even a waterfall within easy walking distance. We'd be happy to go back. Thanks for your hospitality, Mark!
Fabulous a true get away
The redwoods swallow you up and the sound of the creek is soothing. Comfortable
Great experience. We love this place.
The place is lovely and amazing. Mark is a great person and thank you for sharing your story and great coffee. My daughter and I truly had an amazing time. We will certainly be back again, hopefully soon!
This place is a DREAM
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!
Mark is such an amazing host!
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!
The owners provide a warm, appetizing atmosphere in this undiscovered woodland paradise along tranquil Austin Creek, only 20 minutes from Guerneville, Russian River wineries, or the Pacific Ocean.
