Mill Valley is a picturesque California town of 14,000 residents and creative hideaway situated on the eastern slope of Mount Tamalpais. Nestled among redwoods, hills and canyons, Mill Valley is only ten minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge and City of San Francisco, yet less than one hour from Sonoma and Napa Wine Country.
Historical Mill Valley has a unique village charm as well as its human environment-uniquely combining tranquility and liveliness, privacy and community involvement. Starting in 1905 with The Dipsea Race, the first cross-country race in the country, Mill Valley has a rich cultural tradition with the Mountain Play in 1913, the Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival in 1957, the Marin Theatre Company, a professional regional theatre in 1966, the Mill Valley Film Festival in 1978 and the 142 Throckmorton Theatre recently revived, although in existence since 1915. Re-opened in February 2012, after a lengthly absence, is the Sweetwater Music Hall located in the remodeled Masonic Hall right down town.
Mill Valley is surrounded by the picturesque City of Sausalito, 10 minutes south and the Town of Tiburon 10 minutes east with Angel Island State Park only a one mile ride (via Angel Island-Tiburon Ferry), all on San Francisco Bay. Although Mill Valley is close to San Francisco, it is adjacent to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and only 10 minutes to the Muir Woods National Monument and Tennessee Valley Trail head, 20 minutes to Muir Beach, or Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, 30 minutes to Stinson Beach and less than an hour to Point Reyes National Sea Shore. Mill Valley is only a 2-1/2 hour day trip to Monterrey and Carmel and four hours to spectacular Lake Tahoe or Yosemite National Park.

Wonderful property for a family. Well-equiped and charming, and walkable to everything! Hosts were fabulous.
Our family had a wonderful Thanksgiving vacation in Mill Valley. Sally and Mike were gracious host and everything met our expectations. The home was lovely and welcoming and conveniently located to downtown Mill Valley. Their home was equipped with everything we needed especially for a great turkey dinner.
My family just stayed in this perfectly charming home and everything was absolutely delightful. My daughter got married Saturday at Outdoor Art Club and the location was ideal (which is why I selected this rental). Even more, this lovely home provided such a comfortable home base and the background of some fantastic photos of the bride and bridal party "getting ready". Sally and Michael worked hard to make everything just perfect including lovely flowers on the dining table. There were supplies for a quick load of wash, honey for our tea, and hand soap. We will definitely stay here again!
My sisters and I took my mom to this incredible piece of paradise to celebrate her 75th bday! I cannot say enough about this incredible tree-house hideaway. Every amenity was there however it was not so much about the amenities as it was the sheer charm of this incredible place. The garden, the decor, the owners, I cannot say enough it was so difficult to leave. It is also super convenient to downtown Mill Valley which I cannot say enough about either. Charm, is again the word that keeps coming to mind. I will definitely be back!!!
My family was in the Bay Area for my husband’s burial at sea. We wanted cozy, comfortable and location was important too. We couldn’t have made a better choice than this pristine Mill Valley home. Sally was helpful from our first contact. She made it easy to find, welcomed us with open arms and was available as needed. Everything was perfect and our family time together was easy and relaxed. We walked to downtown Mill Valley for dinner, coffee, etc. and that was so easy and convenient. The garden, birds and waterfall were especially loved and appreciated. Thank you Sally & Michael for sharing your beautiful surroundings with my family.
Since our daughter's wedding was at the Outdoor Art Club, we needed a close by residence from which to "home base". Sally and Michael's home was the perfect spot. It easily accomodated our family of five adults. The bride and bridemaids all got their hair and makeup done at the home. The crown jewel is the back deck/yard as it is very tranquil to sit and enjoy the gardens and many birds. Even a hawk paid us a visit! We would stay here again.
