Rustic charming house is close to bus stop, town, hiking/biking trails. There are two larger bedrooms with very comfortable queen beds--- European Sleepworks bed in one room and Earthsake bed in the other. The very small third bedroom has a small bed, which is smaller than twin, but it has a handmade McCroskey mattress on steel frame with springs makes it oh, so comfortable. Small bed is suitable for smaller woman or child. The house has one bathroom, small and nicely detailed.
Easy access to SF by ferry or bus. Local books/maps on hiking and biking will help decide which of many places to visit---Muir Woods, Pt Reyes, Golden Gate Recreational Area, Mt Tam State Park, Angel Island.
Use of old fashioned, well equipped kitchen. Kitchen is 1940s so does not have a dishwasher or garbage disposal. This house is two blocks from quaint downtown San Anselmo with coffee shops, restaurants, bookstore and independent shops. Fairfax, a town with more music at night, is one mile west.
Moving further on, the towns get smaller and the farm/ranch/open spaces get bigger. The Bear Valley visitor center at Pt Reyes is a 35 minute drive or you can take the West Marin Stage public transportation from the bus stop two blocks away.
You can also take the ferry from nearby Larkspur for a relaxing cruise to the Ferry Building in San Francisco and take BART or MUNI for an evening on the town.
This area can also be a base for trips to the wine country in Sonoma or Napa. The town of Sonoma is another 35 minutes away.
Washer and dryer may be used for longer visits. If you have a specific request, please ask me.
Please make sure you have checked that it is OK for the host to contact you by telephone. This makes the process far easier than strictly email.
My house and garden have been described as a tranquil and peaceful environment to experience the best that Marin and the bay area have to offer.
Please ask me and we can work out a plan that suits your needs. I have had many guests and each one is different.
House is two blocks from the major transportation "Hub" in San Anselmo. If you are coming by public transportation, please let me know your needs and timing and I will try to point you in the right direction.
