CHARMING 1 BEDROOM MILL VALLEY COTTAGE

Mill Valley Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This freshly remodeled semi-attached cottage features a beautiful garden setting in the desirable Strawberry section of Mill Valley. The fully furnished and equipped property borders open space - deer are sighted almost daily! It's quiet and peaceful yet only 6 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco!

Easy parking and quick access to the coast, Mount Tamalpais, Muir Woods, Stinson Beach, and the wine country further north. The bus stop and shopping center is a 5 minute walk.

Ideal for up to two Bay Area vacationers, friends visiting the area, or house-hunters. We also have lots of 'newbie' grandparents! No worries, this cottage is upscale, not 'funky.' No stairs, steps or narrow mountain roads to contend with either!

Please call about availability since we occasionally neglect the calendar function.

'This is a very comfortable, quiet, well equipped cottage with helpful and accommodating owners. The location and freeway access are ideal. We will stay there again next time we are in Marin.'

Chuck and Eileen Ballinger are the owners who live in the semi-attached main house (garage in-between). Eileen is a real estate broker fluent in French. Chuck is an author/ artist/ general contractor/ traveler.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1985

It's proximity to San Francisco is very convenient while its setting in Marin adjoins rural open space. Marin County is our favorite place in the world - and we've been almost everywhere!

The cottage looks out on a beautiful European-style garden with terraces and a large fountain (see photo). Strawberry Center is a five minute walk with many restaurants and shops. The cottage is almost three times the size of a hotel room with a fully equipped kitchen. And it's been totally remodeled in 2009!

CONVENIENT PLACE, LOVELY STAY

  • 5 of 5
Great place, very spacious (unlike many other choices) for two people and lots of privacy. Lots of quiet too! The owners were very accommodating for our busy schedule and made us feel at home. The location is very convenient for getting around Marin or into SF or up to Napa and Sonoma. Great for a short stay or a couple of weeks stay...we did both!

WONDERFUL COTTAGE!

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is a wonderful home away from home for us. We have stayed here several times as we visit our family in the area. It is furnished very nicely, extremely clean and well stocked. It is located on a lovely street and the view of beautifully maintained gardens adds to the feeling of peace and tranquility at the end of our busy days here. Chuck and Ilene are gracious hosts and very helpful. We look forward to returning to this cottage on our next trip to the area.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
Spent 4 enjoyable days in this lovely cottage visiting San Francisco, Marin, and Sonoma Counties. It was great to return each evening from the day's adventures to such a lovely and relaxing environment. The cottage is tastefully furnished, well equipped, and super clean. Plenty of books and other information available in the cottage to help you plan activities as well as a very knowledgeable host.

Our recent 1 week stay was wonderful. The cottage is spacious, with a separate bedroom. Chuck and Eileen are excellent hosts and gardeners. This location provides easy access to the CIty and the wonders of Marin County.

GREAT FIND IN MILL VALLEY

  • 5 of 5
This was our second time staying at this cottage. The location is very convenient to San Francisco and the wine county. The cottage is clean and quiet, and has a lovely garden and outdoor sitting area where we spend a bit of time reading in the sun. There are stores, restaurants and bus stops close. I walked up the hill every day to view downtown San Francisco across the bay. The owners are very friendly and helpful, giving suggestions on places to eat and visit in the area. There is a nice library of books for those days you want to just sit and relax and get away from the hustle bustle.

LOVED BEING IN MARIN AT THIS COTTAGE!!

  • 5 of 5
We LOVED staying here this July!! The kitchen, the gardens, the bedroom, EVERYTHING was fantastic!! It was an easy walk to Strawberry Village. We even took public transportation into Tiburon! It was quiet, we slept great, lots of room, and it was great having such a well-equipped kitchen!!

Everything about the place was welcoming to us!!!! Chuck and his wife are both wonderful, lovely people!! We went to the 4th of July fireworks on their invitation and enjoyed their company immensely!!

Can't wait to go back and see them again. They became our friends! We recommend this cottage Very, Very Highly!! Next time we come to Marin we will be there at Chuck and Eileen's. Enjoy your visit......We know you will......... Nancy Lee and Ron
