About Judith

Artist and public health advocate I've lived in San Francisco for 40 years originally from Nyc. Now semi retired I'm transitioning my life to the more quiet and serene settings in Fairfax, Marin. I love it here, and will assist you by sharing all its beauty and secrets so that you will end up loving it too.

Judith purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Judith chose Fairfax

If you're looking for serenity under the trees and stars this is your place. Gorgeous landscaped garden. Full kitchen. Fireplace Yet close to the charming town of Fairfax and only 35 mins to San Francisco or the wine country.

What makes this cottage unique

Beauty. Quiet. Private. Lots of hiking trails. Waterfall nearby. Movie theater, restaurants, cafes and music venues a mile away in the town of Fairfax. San Francisco takes only 35 minutes and there is public transportation if needed.

Cute Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This spot was great for getting around the area, nicely situated close to town and other neighborhoods. The neighborhood was lively with activity and could be heard once in the cabin, but otherwise this space felt private and relaxing.

Owner's Response: As you can see from the other reviews, guests talk about how the cottage is an incredibly quiet sanctuary that provides peace and serenity. I don't remember what day you were here, but I can only imagine that it was a very rare occasion for there to be any activity in this neighborhood (as long as I've lived here there has never been much activity, but perhaps this was a rare occasion). Certainly I can guarantee that this is not the usual experience for our guests.

I had a wonderful time when staying in Fairfax, CA. This place had all that I needed for a great stay. There are lovely hiking paths very near by. The town of Fairfax is fantastic, with lots of places to eat and shop. There are many nearby attractions.
