This delightful cottage sits across the lawn behind the main house in our family compound. Located on a large redwood studded hillside lot in the idyllic Town of Ross, the cottage is minutes from the slopes and trails of Mt. Tamalpais (where mountain biking was invented). If you're a runner, hiker, walker or biker (both road and mountain) this is an ideal location. Hiking and biking maps are provided.
Your hosts are very knowledgeable about the area and are happy to make suggestions about biking or hiking routes, gallery suggestions and restaurant recommendations (there is a book of menus for our guest's use).
A flight of stairs from the parking area leads to our very private and comfortable cottage featuring a luxuriously outfitted queen sized bed, fireplace and a great view across the valley below. Make a fire in the evening, slip into one of the soft and cozy bathrobes that are provided and enjoy a cup of tea or glass of wine. Privacy with all the conveniences and charm of a small town a short walk away. A great way to get away from it all and yet be close to everything!
A wide variety of other activities are close by: San Francisco is just 30 minutes South; Stinson Beach is just 'over the hill;' Napa Valley and Sonoma wine country are 50 minutes North and nearby you have world class restaurants, shops, art galleries and antiquing in both Ross, San Anselmo and Larkspur. An easel for plein air painting is available upon request as are binoculars for birdwatchers.
