Lolo’s Cottage is the ideal destination for your coastal getaway... just an hour’s scenic drive from the Golden Gate Bridge and the Wine Country. We're located directly on Tomales Bay amid the rolling hills of West Marin. Curl up in the window seats to watch the changing light on the bay. Or dine on the dock at sunset as cormorants dive for their own dinners.
We have everything you need for a comfortable stay. The kitchen is fully equipped and we provide hot and cold cereals for your breakfast and all the cooking basics— oils, vinegar, sugar, flour, etc. and 30+ herbs and spices. Just bring your ingredients and you're ready to cook.
We offer high-speed wireless internet connection, a CD player. There is no TV, however you may enjoy our large selection of DVDs on your own computer.
Each of the three bedrooms has its own design and color theme and the luxury of down comforters and pillows on the beds--voted 'super comfortable' by our guests. In addition there is a crib for families with infants.
The standard rate is $325 per night triple occupancy with a $50 per night supplement for each additional adult guest. A low season rate of $275 per night applies for midweek rentals in January and February.
Two things to know about us: the first is we love the outdoors. We ride horses on the trails with kindly mounts from a local stable and ride bikes throughout the Tomales Bay area. We walk and hike the trails and love the surprises that come with each season: a swath of lupine on a spring-green hillside; ospreys feeding their fledgling chicks in their pole-top nest, low-tide walks that reveal anemones, star fish, fan kelp and tiny crabs usually hidden by high water.
The second thing to know is that we love to eat. Fresh seafood and locally grown organic foods are available year 'round. Just-harvested oysters are a 5-minute walk from our front gate and the area's restaurants merit several stars with varied cuisines and the freshest seasonal ingredients...Heaven!
We've been visiting the Point Reyes area for decades-- family day trips to the beaches and hiking trails and getaway weekends just for ourselves. We always dreamed of our own home in the area, but it was rare to hear of properties for sale... so it remained just a dream.
When the opportunity for this magical bayside cottage came up, we jumped at the chance and have been been delighted with our decision ever since. It's been 6 years and the WOW! still hasn't worn off.
