Bolinas Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Nestled in the coastal hills of Bolinas, on the Briarcombe property is the 'Cottage' .

Beautiful, elegant, artistic, serene, romantic, full of nature and private.

We are 1 minute away from HWY 1 on the outer edge of Bolinas and the northern tip of the Bolinas Lagoon facing the coastal hills. 10 minutes from Stinson Beach, 3 minutes from Bolinas Beach and 45 minutes from San Francisco. We are located in ' The good weather zone' in a really beautiful valley of birds, deer, oak trees, meadows, horses and gardens.

The cottage is an elegant, open space design with unobstructed views. There are 2 sleeping areas consisting of 2 queen size beds surrounded by windows. The kitchen is cozy but well supplied with appliances and everything you should need. The main deck looks out to the hills and is private and awe inspiring as is the whole 3&1/2 acre property. There are books, games, WiFi, stereo, satellite TV, playstation, telephone and barbeque out on the patio. There is also a basketball court surrounded by beautiful oak trees, not to mention a stage (with electrical) for events in the meadow.

Please check out the property video at the top. This was done before we added the gate house as a new listing. There are now 3 rentals on the property.

Events such as weddings, retreats or private parties can be held on this beautiful property which includes the main house. Please contact us for wedding & event rates.

In general, for weddings, the full property (house & cottage)must be rented for a minimum of two days with a separate wedding location fee of $3,000.00. Maximum number of guests is about 80, We can no longer have loud amplified music in the meadow. Acoustic music is welcome.

PERFECTION!!

We have just returned from celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary at Briarcombe cottage. We absolutely chose the right spot. It was very scenic, very quiet, very private -- providing a great mix of relaxation, intimacy and excitement -- the latter primarily from getting to photograph the beautiful fox who was sharing the property and the stunning wildcat who visited as well. We were not adventure seekers this time around, but the cottage is close to so much, you can't go wrong -- surfing, kayaking, hiking, ....
Rozlyn handled our accommodations with professional care and a very nice personal touch. Thank you, Rozlyn!

We had an outstanding several days in Bolinas at Briarcombe. The photos almost capture the beauty of the place. Kevin (the owner) and Rozlyn (the manager of the property) are very welcoming. I can not say enough good things about this rental.

Weekend Getaway

The Briarcombe Cottage was terrific. My wife and I left our kids with my parents and spent two relaxing nights at the Cottage. The location is perfect: barely over an hour from the East Bay, located about a quarter mile off Highway 1 on a quiet street, with the Cottage itself situated at the base of a hill, practically in the woods. Within a short drive of Pt. Reyes Station and great hikes (I recommend the 9.6 mile Tomales Point hike). The owner and property manager go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable (in our case, even going so far as to purchase a brand new basketball when I expressed an interest in shooting hopes on the property).

wedding weekend BRIARCOMBE!

When my wife (new wife) were looking for a location for our wedding we never thought finding a place as perfect as Briarcombe would be possible. But of course, Briarcombe DOES exist! It had everything we were looking for. The houses were all comfortable, well equipped, and above all absolutely beautiful! The houses are architectural masterpieces and there are so many little special features that set it apart from, really, any house I've ever been in. We used the meadow for the wedding and the stage came in handy, as did the folding tables and chairs. There are multiple kitchens which allowed us all to prepare dinner without stepping all over each other. The location is easy to find and immersed in the natural beauty of Bolinas. Deer were steady visitors and hawks flew overhead, not to mention the loads of flowers and trees. I would highly recommend this place, it's magical, beautiful, and just absolutely amazing!

A beautiful retreat

My husband and I were out to visit my daughter who is on an internship and living in Dogtown so the Briarcombe cottage was a perfect location for us. We found it to be an amazing spot to relax the mind and spirit. Between the beautiful flowers and vegetable garden, the birds, and the house itself, there was always something to feast the eyes upon. The house was well equipped and comfortable with everything we needed. It did get cool in the morning and evening, but there is heat available in the house & plenty of warm blankets. (Beware of the small refrigerator & freezer if you have a lot to keep cool- we managed fine, but were told that there was additional space if needed in the garage.) Additionally, while not a problem for me, the shower was a bit short for my 6'2 husband, but manageable. Kevin & Meguni were very welcoming & accommodating without being obtrusive in any way. We were allowed to pick fresh vegetables right from the garden- which was wonderful to add to our salads. The property is a quick drive to Bolinas and close to other small towns for groceries or restaurants, if desired. The restaurant & smoothie place in town were both very good. We also took a yoga class in the community hall- the teacher had plenty of mats and props if you don't have your own. There are many nature hikes and nature areas in the Point Reyes area which were wonderful to visit- however, it's so beautiful right there, that you may not want to venture out. All of our communication with Kevin was positive. He promptly answered our questions and was a great resource for places to pick up supplies. The descriptions and photos clearly and accurately depict the property's appearance and amenities. We would highly recommend this property to friends and relatives. We hope to return in the future as there was not enough time to explore this beautiful area.

Please google about west Marin & the bay area. I am far too lazy to talk about all the good things to do. Bolinas and area is an incredibly beautiful & magical place to be, especially Briarcombe.
