The house is a perfect hotel alternative for me as a business traveler. All the comforts of home are found here and the decks make the house's livable space much more generous that the square footage suggests. I enjoyed meals on the deck and the wonderful views across the valley. Access to the Mill Valley’s square is a nice walk or a very short drive. Each business day I drove to one of the two nearby ferry terminals, parked my car and commuted across the bay into SF. The short walk from the SF Ferry Building to the Financial District is a wonderful beginning or end to the workday and the ferry schedule offers convenient times throughout the am and pm rush hours. Mill Valley is full of tight, windy and hilly roads, so I rented a small car that made driving and parking more manageable. This house and town are each a wonderful place to stay and for many reasons.
