Property description

Quiet neighborhood, close to Gerstle Park and the freeway and walking distance to downtown. The home sits on a hillside that overlooks the town, which is small cafes, shops, a couple of bakeries, and a very active evening life, including great music venues like the Fenix and George's. A very short drive gets you to Terrapin Crossroads (owned and operated by Phil Lesh) and the eclectic Studio 55. We have a men's and a women's bicycle if you want to tour on two wheels. A little over a half hour into the heart of San Francisco and an hour to Healdsburg or Napa in the Wine Country. 40 - 60 minutes to coast locations and Point Reyes (40 minutes) is definitely worth a visit. Great dog walking if you bring your dog. Ask me for suggestions. A very comfortable getaway.

About the owner: We live one hour away in Point Reyes. I am a Marin Master Gardener and owner of two herding dogs. In my spare time I like hiking, kayaking, and working in the community.

Why the Owner Chose Gerstle Park (San Rafael, CA, USA):
