Overview

About the property

Cabin, Studio + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

This quiet and secluded sun-filled cabin, the former home of German actor Klaus Kinski, is set at the end of a dirt road high on a ridgetop between the San Geronimo Valley and Nicasio. Nestled in a grove of towering redwood and Douglas fir trees, bordering Samuel P. Taylor State Park, and a half-mile from the closest house, it offers breathtaking views of Mount Tamalpais and San Geronimo Ridge to the south and Bolinas Ridge to the west. The cabin boasts a wood stove set in a large stone fireplace for relaxing evenings and romance. A queen bed is at the top of a spiral staircase in a loft overlooking the living area. Hiking and mountain biking trails leave right from the front door. Its location between Central Marin and the Point Reyes National Seashore makes it easy to take advantage of all that Marin County has to offer while affording guests unparalleled privacy.

There is a long, bumpy dirt road to the cabin that currently requires 4WD or AWD.

Heaven at the top of the mountain. This place is magical.

  • 5 of 5

There is a wonderful element of surprise. My husband and I experienced peacefulness that we do not get in our every day pace. We slept so well. The hike on the east ridge was beautiful. The view is magnificent. It is the perfect place to go and recharge.

Wonderful stay in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We were so lucky to have been able to stay here! It's in a secluded area in the woods, and a nice place to unleash our 2 kids and 2 dogs in the woods. The cabin was beautiful and well furnished and had everything we needed to make dinner. Thank you Liz.

Special place in the woods

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful retreat from which to recharge and regroup from the pressures of everyday living. The drive over from SF is lovely but surprisingly quick. You have the experience of feeling worlds away while " tucked up there" in this jewel of a place. We will most certainly return. Thank you Liz and Chuck for opening this special place to us. (and special thanks to Chuck for the ride back down the hill!)

Best regards,

Justin Green

only a little over an hour drive from San Francisco but it feels a world away. Such a beautiful property, romantic cabin, on acres of land. Hikes start on the property. We will definitely be back!
