BRIGHT 1BR COTTAGE W/LOFT IN THE HEART OF BERKELEY - YOUR NEW FAVORITE GETAWAY!

Berkeley Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Berkeley, California

Coming to California? What better way to spend a trip than nestled in your own private cottage? You’ll be living like a local in no time when you check-in at this Berkeley gem. 

 

This darling guest cottage is ideal for a couple’s weekend away or a laid back trip with friends. One bedroom provides a Queen-sized Bed, and an elevated loft, accessible by ladder, can provide additional sleeping as well. You’ll love the traditional Tudor-style architecture that frames this private escape. Natural light and warmth flood this home with private en suite bathroom. You’ll love coming home after a day of exploration, grabbing a book, lounging on the patio, or catching up on work under a sky lit desk (free, high-speed Wi-Fi). This chic yet comfortable property offers exactly what you need to rest and relax while traveling to the Bay Area. 

 

Located in the heart of the Claremont/Elmwood area of Berkeley, this home positions you perfectly to explore the best of Northern California. The famed University of California, Berkeley, is a brief 5 minute drive from your accommodations, making it easy for you to catch a game at the recently renovated Cal Memorial Stadium, a concert at the Greek Theater, or take a tour of the on-campus Berkeley Art Museum. The historic Claremont Club and Spa is a mere 10 minute walk, where you can access the Bay Area's best family aquatic facility, complete with a 25-yard heated outdoor recreational pool, a 25-yard heated lap pool and outdoor jet-stream whirlpool. The Club also hosts a sauna and steam room, as well as 10 outdoor tennis courts.

For dinner and drinks, top-rated Elmwood/Rockridge restaurants and bars are within walking distance, including Wood Tavern, Southie, and The Trappiste Provisions. Grab a treat at Tara's Organic Ice Cream or Ici and then catch a movie at the Elmwood Neighborhood Cinema -all within walking distance! Tilden Park, Lawrence Hall of Science and the Botatnical Garden of Berkeley (with 13,000 different kinds of plants from around the world) are less than 3 miles from your accommodations! The metropolis of San Francisco is also nearby, accessible via BART from the Rockridge Station, providing many more sights to be seen. Plan a visit to the legendary Alcatraz Island or sample seafood fare at Fisherman's Wharf. The wine country of Sonoma and Napa counties also make for a wonderful day trip.

Whether you're here to wander and relax or visit your UC Berkely student, this guest cottage makes the ideal home base for your stay!

a graceful cottage in a beautiful berkely neighborhood

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in the cottage for 10 days at the end of May, and could not have had a better experience. The cottage is freestanding and provides complete privacy. The design is graceful - the exterior is a tudor style that matches the main house. The interior is quite spacious, with a separate living room, bedroom, and even an office to work in. It was immaculate on my arrival, and the owners provided a complimentary bottle of wine and fresh flowers to brighten it and make me feel welcome.

The location is another big plus. The cottage is situated adjacent to the owner's home, in a beautiful neighborhood in Berkeley, so parking was easy and safety was not an issue. UC Berkeley is 5 minutes away, and College avenue is just a short walk. The Rockridge Bart station as also quite close by, and there is easy car access to San Francisco via highway 24.

The owners were lovely; happy to chat or answers questions when I had them, but also happy to let me have privacy. I can't imagine a better spot to stay on my next trip to the Bay area, so I am hoping the cottage is free the next time I am in town!

Great Base for an East Bay Visit

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent four nights in the cottage. In was a wonderful location for enjoying "Old Berkeley." Close to the UC campus and the Claremont Hotel, the cottage is in walking distance of a wide array of restaurants, markets, and residential neighborhoods which are a delight to explore. The design and decor of the cottage, which feels brand new but fits with its 100 year old home, were exquisite. We had no problem parking. The loft is accessible by a ladder so it would be an adventure for older children but might be a challenge for younger ones or anyone afraid of heights.

Perfect cottage! Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week at this cottage and found the amenities and neighborhood exceptional! The inside was pristine and perfectly equipped for light breakfasts and snacks and happy hour! The location was a short walk to a fabulous market, fun shops and restaraunts -Claremont and College Streets. Just a short drive to great hiking in the hills of Berkeley and an easy 15 minute walk to the train (BART) - with easy access to all of the Bay area!! The cottage is close to the main house and very secure, and the owners were delightful. Nice outdoor areas for leisure as well. We will definitely stay here again and have already recommended it to friends!! Perfect. Just perfect!

Claremont Cottage is a gem

  • 5 of 5
We loved this cottage, furnished beautifully, elegant and homey at the same time. Rooms are appointed with original works of art and with bouquets and potted plants, just an example of the many thoughtful touches that make you feel welcome and at ease. The hosts go out of their way to make you feel comfortable in every way. The neighborhood provides a quiet base from which to explore the city’s unique offerings, by foot or by car, or stay at “home” and have a picnic lunch on the patio.

Beautiful space, great light, quite and clean.Close to everything! Owners are wonderful, friendly, and most accommodating. I slept better on the bed in this place than my bed at home. Looking forward to a return trip to Berkeley and will certainly stay here again.
