Quiet hideaway in LaFayette

  • 5 of 5

Loved our quiet hideaway in downtown Lafayette. Very clean, comfortable and private. Evelyn stocked fridge with welcoming drinks and coffee and bagels for breakfast. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

We loved staying in the cottage. It was perfectly located near downtown Lafayette, the highways and bart. It was very secluded, cozy and charming. We plan on staying there whenever we are in the Bay Area visiting family.

Perfect location for us!

We will definitely stay again because it is so close to our family! Everything we needed was there...clean and well-kept. Walking distance to shopping and dining...close enough to walk to BART for other excursions.

Ideal cottage

  • 5 of 5

A perfect cottage with all necessary facilities. Ideally situated for the BART transport, giving quick access to the city. Superbly clean and well appointed, and a bonus to find a welcome pack in the fridge, It was great to wander round the town and shop for food without a car! We would return, should our travels find us in the Bay Area again. Very happy travellers from Sussex, UK. Thank you Evelyn
