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.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2009
The property has been in the family since 1970 and it wasn't originally intended for use as a vacation rental.
Come and see or read the reviews. It's one-of-a-kind.
My only complaint is that I never wanted to go home after staying in the cottage for a week. Waking up in the little bedroom and only seeing greenery outside was the perfect way to start the day. My boyfriend and I spent most of our days hiking in Muir Woods and Pt. Reyes and exploring the towns nearby. Most afternoons, we grabbed some delicious local groceries and came "home" and cooked. The kitchen, while small, was equipped with all the essentials and there was a great gas grill outside. While there are two other rental units on the property, we felt we had enough privacy as there is quite a bit of space between them. Rozlyn, the property manager, was nothing but lovely and communicative and made sure we had everything we needed.
I cannot wait until my next opportunity to stay at the cabin again.
We wanted to gather with some friends during a week-end
and ended up spending a most enchanting week-end at Briarcomb.
Some of us knew the place, we rented a while ago the main house,
and this time we decided to rent the cottage.
We all agreed the place, its setting in a beautiful environment,
were very unique and full of character.
To crown it all, each of us felt instantaneously at home
and at the same time far away from our daily surrounding.
This is the perfect blend to relax, enjoy oneself,
and the company of close friends.
Charm and aesthetics are not easy to find but you get it all at Briarcomb.
My husband and I stayed in the Briarcombe cottage for 5 nights in September. The weather was perfect, the flowers were blooming, the beach and Mount Tam were just minutes away as was the organic veg stand and Cow Girl Creamery, but best of all- we got to come home to peace, quiet and beauty every day.
Braircombe looks like it was built by artists- every square inch of the beautiful wooden interior just glows with care. It was clearly built for comfort and peacefulness and that is what we found. When we spoke to Rozlyn, we felt assured that we would be well suited to stay in the cottage and it felt like home immediately. Every night we saw the stars overhead and every morning we awoke with the birds and went out to see if there were deer in the meadow. We took our coffee on the deck and watched the wildlife play. It was beautiful and we were sad to go home.
I am looking forward to going back again. The proximity to "The City" as well as to the quaint town of Bolinas and Point Reyes Park makes it a perfect choice for travelers who want to sample both sides of life.
Thank you for your hospitality! See you soon!

My husband and I stayed at the cottage the weekend of our Bolinas wedding. It was the perfect place for me to get ready with my bridesmaids the day of the wedding, and was a wonderful and much-needed retreat on the wedding night. It is quiet, beautiful, and secluded. There was a family reunion going on at the larger house on the property, and we never heard a thing.
We chose to take some of our wedding portraits at the property, and they came out beautifully, as the scenery around the property is simply stunning: large, beautiful trees and mature gardens.
It was also a very convenient location to downtown Bolinas and to our wedding.
I hope we'll be able to stay again in the future!
I stayed at Briarcombe this past weekend with a group that rented all 3 buildings, but for a small group of 1 or 2 couples, the Cottage would definitely be the most relaxing and nature-filled choice.
The building is the deepest into the property, and I felt like I could have taken a nap there and had the most relaxing, quiet sleep I've ever had. So serene, the views are instantly calming.
My husband and I stayed here for two nights to just get away. Luckily we were the only ones on the property which was nice!
The cottage was clean and when we were greeted by the property manager we were thrilled. She walked us through everything. She was the sweetest lady ever. She even got rid of a big spider web on the deck for me since I told her I was terrified of spiders.
The weather was nice. It did get a bit hot during the day inside but that would be my only complaint.
We will def be back here! It was a nice place to just get away from our fast-paced lives.
Please google West Marin & the Bay Area. There are so many wonderful things to do. Bolinas and the surrounding area are an incredibly beautiful & magical place to stay, especially Briarcombe.
