Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
This romantic cottage located on historic 'Ark Row', has a quiet, peaceful setting with a lovely view across the bay. The cottage itself is located in town on its own private dock over the water. It is not 'near' the water, nor does it simply have a 'view of' the water. Drop a pebble a the dock and is splashes into the water. Read or write, dine or observe a parade of maritime life: sailboats, diving Pelicans, and curious seals. Though ten minutes to the Golden Gate Bridge and 15 minutes to downtown San Francisco, you will be in your own secluded world.
Throughout Marin County there are fabulous biking and hiking trails with kayak and boat rentals available in Sausalito. The mini environment of maritime Sausaiito has long been recognized as the most temperate weather in the Bay Area - cool in summer and characteristically fog free most of the year.
Available for long or short term rental, historic waterfront ' ARK' (House on a dock.)

About Marion Slater
I have owned the cottage for more than 40 years, it was originally a boat house owned by a captain of a fishing boat. I had always admired the property for its location on the water, when it was offered for sale I was happy to buy it, have been glad I did.
Marion Slater purchased this Cottage in 1969

What a special little gem....
I booked this place for my parents and it is absolutely darling! I would recommend it for anyone wanting a special Sausalito getaway in prime walking distance to everything! I did have challenges getting a hold of the owner a few days before the trip. I had a few unanswered emails as well as unreturned voicemails I left her. This sent me into a panic the day of check in and I was exploring backup lodging plans. If this happens to you rest assured the key is left for you at the door! I am so happy I checked! Enjoy this little slice of paradise!
We loved our stay! So close to everything in Sausalito yet very quiet and relaxing. Enjoying the view from the room or the deck was delightful. Thank you!
Very nice. We would love to stay there again.
I found the stay to be most enjoyable. The unit was clean, the bed was comfortable, and all else was fine.
Only two things I found to be improved were the commode seat was way too small and it would have helped to have heavier window coverings. I kinda like to sleep in on vacation.
Appreciate thee comments made by this guest, and will act on his requests.
A restful respite
The cottage is immaculate and quaint with amazing views of the water. I heard sea lions barking. A heron on a rock. So relaxing
Comfy bed, kitchenette and good shower.
Who could ask for more. Close to the ferry or bus to SF if you do not have a car. Check the ferry schedule as they do not go constantly
I would go back in a heartbeat. Marion is very sweet and accommodating.
Awesome waterfront bungalow
We stayed 5 nights and enjoyed the location and quietness. Located near markets, restaurants and just outside the main drag, so not a lot of tourists. We did not have a car and relied on the ferry to go to SF. The ferry and town are a short walk away. We would definitely stay here again.
Sausalito Annual Trip
We've vacationed in Sausalito four years now for the annual art festival and have always had a great time. This is the first year we decided to stay somewhere different and tried Marian's Cottage by the Bay. It was very cute, clean and had everything we needed, however the weather was so blasted hot even the fans did little to keep us cool so we cut our trip short. The setting is perfect for relaxing on the deck in the morning with our coffee and in the evening with our wine. The location is perfect for both walking to the festival and shops/restaurants. Plus having a dedicated parking place makes it so much easier to come and go and not feel obligated to leave the car in one place for fear of not having a place to park upon returning. Marian is a delight. The only negative, we did have an issue with a lot of little ants at the front door but hopefully we took care of them.
