Enjoy private, updated cottage with Queen Bed and large bath/shower, next to open space and trials, walking distance to town. Property in quiet neighborhood. Great place for inlaws

The space

Read a book on our huge lawn in a relaxing chair under the cherry tree or stroll to the Marin Stables and say hello to the horses...Walk into town to hear some great live music or jump on your mountain bike to explore miles of the best trails in the world.
The cottage is 400 sq ft with lots of space to relax and chill out. Pack n Play, Futon or daybed available if needed. *No smoking, please*. Also note because we are deep in a valley, cell reception is spotty. (URL HIDDEN) come here to disconnect!! Internet works great.

Guest access

The cottage is on the far side of the property, so lots of privacy across a large lawn. Parking is on the street. We are next to 24,000 acres of open space with miles of trails, close to San Rafael, San Anselmo, west Marin, etc. walking distance to town, restaurants, parks, etc. (1 flat mile to downtown Fairfax, one large block from Deer Park Villa).

Interaction with guests

The cottage is on the far side of the lawn and plenty of room to relax in our quiet neighborhood. We have two sweet, older huskies who like to hang out in the yard and welcome you with a cute husky howl. We also have twin girls, 7 years old.....If you want privacy, we can be very invisible, or if you want kids laughter, a beer on the deck, or a welcoming conversation about our neighborhood and us, we can do that too! We are super flexible!

Other things to note

1. Cell phone coverage is spotty, since we are in a valley. Could be a good thing? Wifi works well.
2. We also have 2 friendly huskies on the property who will greet you with a howl and a tail wag! They sometimes visit the cottage so if you are allergic to dogs or scared of them, probably not the place for you.

Marla was a great host and we enjoyed our stay! Perfect location for an event at Deer Villa, and walking distance to lots of restaurants and bars in town.

We visited for a wedding in the area. The cottage was perfect for our needs. Best part about the stay was the hospitality from the owners!

It was really great staying here. The family was helpful and friendly and we felt very comfortable. I loved getting to know fairfax and there are a ton of things to do and see in the area. The home is located very close to the main town area of fairfax and it's a quick drive or walk to hiking spots. Around the towns and such there are areas with no cell reception so you'll probably want to load directions on your phone before leaving the cottage but the wifi was good and reliable in the cottage. Thanks so much!

A few things to note: -This *very* clean full apartment has all of the conveniences, is located near historic Marin sables, as well as adjacent to an Open Space Reserve, where we enjoyed a day hike. Trail maps for Marin County are found online. -You may have wild animals nearby (we had raccoons on the roof which are a wake-up moment, saw about a dozen deer, etc.) -We spent time in nearby funky Fairfax and dined at Madcap, which is a new gourmet destination within a mile or so in San Anselmo. -This unit is very private and quite well equipped, with a spacious bathroom including huge shower and jacuzzi tub. -The hosts are incredibly nice and friendly, but honor privacy is that is your goal.

This cottage is in a great location. It is walking distance to downtown Fairfax and next door to wonderful biking/hiking/running trails. It is very peaceful. The yard and furnishings are dated and tired, but everything was very comfortable. We did not feel it was a great value for the price.

We lived in Hawaii for many years, so we bring the Aloha spirit to our home and life. We have twin 7 year old girls and twin 11 year old huskies! Everyone will welcome you then let you have your space in the quiet cottage.
