This lovely studio cottage in Mill Valley, Marin County, just North of San Francisco, sits beside a stream, just 20 feet from a small waterfall. It is only a five minute walk, alongside the creek through a redwood grove, from downtown Mill Valley!

The space

This cottage is a lovely, private, fully furnished studio in the redwoods of Mill Valley, Marin County, California, just North of San Francisco.

The cottage sits beside a stream only 20 feet from a small waterfall. A five minute walk alongside the stream and through the adjoining Miller Redwood Grove leads to the heart of the village of Mill Valley. There the visitor finds the Sequoia movie theater (chief venue of the famed Mill Valley Film Festival), the Mill Valley Market grocery, the Book Depot book store, several fine coffee houses and restaurants, and Sweetwater, Mill Valley's beloved music hall.

Public transportation to San Francisco and other locations in the area is available at Lytton Square, the gathering space at the heart of the village. Golden Gate Transit. (URL HIDDEN) provides the bus service between Mill Valley and San Francisco. Detailed trip planning is available up to three weeks in advance at their website.

The Cottage by the Creek has a simple, charming ambiance. Comforts include a fully equipped kitchenette; bathroom with shower; and an adjustable queen sized bed with vibrating massage. Wireless internet is provided.

This is a great location for hiking, biking; or day trips to the Wine Country of Sonoma, Napa, and the Russian River. Point Reyes National Seashore, Muir Woods, and the recreational opportunities of Stinson Beach and Bolinas are short drives away.

Interaction with guests

Although I love to meet and greet my guests, and to learn about their lives and travels, I also understand and respect that some guests want complete privacy. The location of the cottage makes either approach easy and natural.

The hostess was excellent for communication and accuracy. This place is super cozy and enchanting, with a rustic feel next to a woodsy creek that trails down to the center of town. Easy to walk there to enjoy restaurants, shops, and coffee houses. It felt safe for my son and I, and we loved it!

We loved our stay in Marilla’s cottage! The road the Home is on is lined with Redwoods and is one of the most picturesque streets I’ve ever seen. The cottage itself was perfect for two, cozy and in a wonderful location - with a cute backyard to boot. Would definitely recommend!

Marilla has done a lovely job transforming her garage into a quaint little cottage. We enjoyed our stay. The bed was very comfortable and the stay was cozy. Thanks!
