Welcome to your quiet mountain retreat.

Situated on a private road in a hillside forest, this studio is ideal if you are seeking a restorative retreat in nature, a romantic getaway with your partner, or just want to change up the scenery for a restful staycation. Wake up under a canopy of trees and enjoy a morning coffee out on your own private back patio. You may even be visited by deer or hear the meditative flow of the creek that runs along our property during the rainy season.

The space
The studio is privately tucked away under Bay and Buckeye trees. It receives soft, natural light through all its windows and yet always stays nicely shaded and cool. Among our guest favorites are the private back patio and the fireplace to get warm and cozy on those brisk mountain evenings.

You'll have your own fully equipped kitchen, complete with a refrigerator, coffee maker, dishwasher, washer/dryer, fresh local coffee, seasonal tea blends, and other treats to help make you feel at home. There’s also a table where you can set up your workspace (or enjoy your meals on) and fiber internet for quality WIFI speed and connection. This little zen oasis is the ideal environment to focus, create, think, read, work, and just quietly be.

Where you’ll be

Mill Valley, California, United States

We are located in the heart of outdoor exploration: hike to the peak of Mt. Tam or under the old-growth redwood trees of Muir Woods; paddle-board across the Richardson Bay or bring your own seaside picnic to Stinson Beach.

You can also enjoy your time here in Mill Valley with a walk downtown or a visit to the cute shops at the Lumber Yard. Bookend your day of rigorous adventuring with locally sourced produce from Good Earth Natural Foods, a coffee from our neighborhood favorite, Equator Coffees, or al fresco dining at Hook Fish.

We're also about 10 minutes from Sausalito and are conveniently located en route to other North Bay adventures like wine tasting in Sonoma or shucking fresh oysters in Tomales Bay. We're about 20-30 minutes from San Francisco (it's a beautiful drive across the historic Golden Gate Bridge), and depending on traffic, about 30-45 minutes from Berkeley and Oakland.

I'm an art director, photographer, and visual strategist, and run my own creative studio from the comforts of my dream home - where I live with my life partner, Stephen - nestled in the trees of Mill Valley, CA. As a creative, I'm always curious about exploring other cultures and traveling with the lens of a local. I’ve lived in six different countries, but have been in the Bay Area for nearly eight years with Stephen. One of my favorite creative projects was curating the Zen Studio in the Trees. We transformed the in-law guest suite attached to our house into a beautiful, quiet retreat for people seeking soulful nourishment and inspiration while surrounded by nature. It’s deeply fulfilling to get to offer a space like this to people and to know that they are receiving the relaxation and recentering they needed. Looking forward to sharing this journey with you, as either a guest or host! xx
