1921 cottage in the woods

Our cozy 1921 cottage apartment is located in a quiet neighborhood beneath 19 200 foot redwood trees. In Fairfax, you're not too far from anything!

The town of Fairfax is a wonderful combination of boho arts, yoga, mountain bike riders,farmers market, lovers of good food and entertainment. We have two markets, one the "world famous" Good Earth natural food store. Our house is within walking distance of the town center on a closed road with minimal car traffic

2 bed rooms. (1 Queen and 1 single)

Large living room area.

Jr kitchen, we have a toaster oven,microwave, coffee and tea, so it's good for a little snack or breakfast.

We're located just 10 min walk to downtown Fairfax where there's lots of good food, bars with live music,yoga and possibly the best ice cream shop ever.

The bus stop is located right downtown so it's easy to catch a bus to the city, or a shuttle to the beach.

You'll also be located a 10 min walk from loads of hiking and mountain biking trails in Deer Park. If you're feeling energetic you can hike up to one of the five lakes nearby, or just drive 20 min up the hill.

Super house and super host.

  • 5 of 5

Teresa furnished this lovely house with detail for everything. We loved it. Great location: very quiet, yet also very close to San Francisco, Muir Woods and other areas.

We would certainly stay here again.

My son and I stayed at this lovely cottage for 2 nights. We were happily surprised! It is super close to the town of Fairfax and all of the wonderful shops and restaurants, and is close to hiking trials as well. The cottage was clean, the beds were very comfortable, and we enjoyed the fireplace. We were able to cook our meals at night, even though it doesn't have a full stove - there was a hot pot and a plug in burner/hotplate, and a small fridge and coffee maker. Teresa checked in with us daily to see how we were doing and to see if we needed anything. I would definitely stay here again. A bargain for what you get!

Short but sweet stay

  • 5 of 5

Clean, cute and solid representation of coastal Marin. Teresa was more than accommodating to myself and family. Excellent communication. I even got to fall in love with yet another Marin town. Fairfax is an exceptional community with so much character. Thank you for everything :) Would def recommend.

Very charming cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a writers retreat here and it was really the perfect location and space. Big skylights throughout, a fireplace, and a cute little deck gave us many spaces to get creative in. The house also butts up against a national forest, so it was great to have hiking trails right out the door as a way to take a break and get revitalized. The hosts were responsive and sweet. And all the beds were SO comfortable. I am very picky with beds and every single bed was amazing. I highly recommend this place!!
