It's within walking distance of all the great dining spots in town like the Lark Creek Inn, Left Bank, and Larkspur Café Theater, Rulli's Café. It's also just a short hike to a scenic trail heads in Baltimore Canyon and King Mountain leading you to the hiker's paradise of Mt. Tamalpais, Mt. Tam Watershed and Muir Woods. Not only is this a hiker's paradise, but this is also the birthplace of mountain biking and all the great Marin mountain biking is right here.

This has been a family home for the last 21 years. Now that the kids are grown it just makes sense to have the home available to Bay Area visitors so that others can enjoy what we have known for all this time.
Larkspur has been a San Francisco get away since before the Golden Gate bridge was built. It is convenient to the city of San Francisco, yet without all the hassles and noise of the city life. There are some great and I mean great restaurants a short walk into town (2 blocks). The hiking trails in Marin are phenomenal and plentiful for all levels. The best weather in the bay area and lush gardens surrund you.
