Situated on a secluded 1 1/2 acre garden paradise our the cottage is not visible from any neighboring homes. It's a great place to write your memoirs, commune with nature, write that book or binge watch Jack Ryan. And given the current environment, THE COTTAGE IS METICULOUSLY CLEANED.

The space
Just minutes from Muir Woods, Mt. Tam & less than 1mi from the famous Mountain Home Inn off Panoramic Highway.

***The road getting here is windy, but once you're here we guarantee you will not leave.

Our dream like cottage is set on a 1 1/2 acre "park-like" setting with a beautiful garden.

This mountain retreat is situated on a hill with beautiful views of the valley, and the Bay. It offers a ladder-to-loft hideaway for an extra 2 people (in addition to the quaint master bedroom).

A fireplace in the living room will truly bring you comfort and warmth in any season.

Note that our washer/dryer is below the home - meaning you'll have to exit the main door and walk outside to perform wash/dry.

Please note: Access to the property is down a narrow street and requires a 3 mile drive up the famed Mt. Tam and Panoramic Highway arterial streets. Once here you are guaranteed to find peace, quiet, relaxation and no desire to ever leave our mountain retreat and hideaway.

A Note About Our Weather/Climate:
For most times of the year, we are blessed with perfect Northern California weather. Cool mornings and evenings and warm and pleasant mid day and afternoon temps.
Please note, that the home is located in a “banana belt’. The fog can be blowing in heavily on the mountain but at our place it can be beautiful and sunny. It’s actually pretty weird!

Two thumbs up from me.

The enchanted cottage is the perfect cozy nest away from home. It is in a great location to explore a lot of Northern California. Head the detailed recommendations of the very attentive hosts! Until once driven the mountain is a bit hard to maneuver and its a tight drive to the cottage. There is a charming hiking path off the cottage, and I had fun just walking around the neighborhood. The cottage itself is meticulously clean and well appointed. I cook a lot and was very pleased with the kitchen. The fireplace is huge and adds so much ambiance. It was wonderful to sit by the fire, sip a glass of wine and look out the window at the large Redwoods lit up by path lights. The observation deck was a lovely space to enjoy a cup of morning Java, and read a book or a newspaper. There is quite a lot of garden space so I would think a great space for kids (old enough to climb ladder to loft) to have fun. The cottage is a super find and I recommend it. I especially liked its clean simple uncluttered style. Lots of towels and shampoo etc supplied. Two thumbs up from me.

Pictures don't do this place justice!

his place was better than we imagined! Great location to relax but close enough for things to do. Wonderful location for a romantic getaway. Definitely a must stay. The pictures don't do this place justice!

It truely is an enchanted place

Thank you A.C. for that wonderful cottage of yours! It truely is an enchanted place that is thoughtfully and tastefully furnished! Also, the being surrounded by big Redwood trees is just overwhelmingly beautiful! We loved it and consider it one of the best get-aways/short-trips we ever had! We loved it and will come back! 5+ stars!

Love love loved the location!!!

Love love loved the location!!!Beautiful place- it feels like u r in the jungle! The house is super modern and cool as well! The hosts were amazing and had quick communication. *note: no a/c which means it gets really hot during the day in July. There are only a few windows that open with screens.
