Guestbook comments from the manager

Good morning Kelly ~

Sorry this is so late, but I wanted to thank you again for sharing your magical Muir home!! It was even more beautiful than we could have imagined! Doing a fare amount of traveling and renting houses for most of our trips, your home managed to surpass all the others we have rented in location, comfort and attention to detail! The book you left with info (dr's #'s!!!) and menus ~ was a Godsend and we checked in with it a few times! The kitchen and laundry room were one of the best stocked I've ever come across! I love to cook and so to have great appliances, pots, pans, spices, etc. is a blessing! The bedrooms were super comfy and the whole place was immaculate (unfortunately rare!) In short, WE LOVED staying at Muir Cottage and need to go back again!!!

Thank you again!

Peace. Joy. Love

Our Five-Star review of this property, and owner, is a bit redundant from all the reviews written by the lucky travelers preceding us in finding this gem. Everything was wonderful and I agree with every positive thing said so far below.

Kelly was clear, efficient, thoughtful and very generous in sharing this beautiful home. My family loved everything about our three days in Mill Valley for a family wedding.

Dreamy cottage surrounded by redwoods.

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent experience at the Muir cottage. It really worked out very nicely for us. Fireplace and central room was the highlight with lots of natural light and beautiful wood details. Muir Woods is not more than a few miles away and you could walk to downtown mill valley. I went for a run and found some nice trails nearby. Would love to come back here sometime soon! 5 stars!

Ideal home.. ideal neighbourhood .. ideal town

  • 5 of 5

An immaculate home with all amenities needed plus a lot more!

The description of the home is accurate, and in fact does not do it justice. Kelly was very helpful and made sure that all the information we needed we got. From our initial interest until we left the property she was a call or email away.

One cannot ask for a better location..... 20 minutes to SF, and 20 minutes to 2 national parks.

A family friendly and safe neighborhood with a beautiful park.. pass this and you are in Mill Valley town center.. here you can find an abundance of restaurants and boutiques to suit all tastes.

Walk the other direction, and take a dip in a natural spring... walk with deer through 200-500 year-old red woods, and feel the peace & tranquility.

Already planning a return trip!

This property is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The Luxury Creekside Cottage in Mill Valley is everything you could imagine! From the first moment we opened the doors, we realized how lucky we were to have chosen this rental. The house was immaculate, the area is spectacular, and the owners are very friendly and extremely accommodating! Thank you Kelly!! After visiting San Francisco and enjoying all of the tourist destinations we had come on the vacation for, we immediately realized that Kelly was right.....the area within walking or short driving distance from the house is hard to leave. Just opening the doors and smelling the Redwoods was enough to start every day off right. I have recommended this house and area to many friends and hope to get back myself within the near future.

Serene Muir Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Like a fairytale cottage surrounded by forest complete with redwoods and a stream flowing through the property. Spacious and very comfortable with lots of beautiful Windows, a large peaceful deck and nice furnishings. A short walk to the charming town or walk to several woodsy hikes from the front door. We didn't want to leave.

Magical house in the redwoods

  • 5 of 5

Muir Cottage is the perfect getaway. Nestled in the Redwoods, only a few minutes walk from amazing hiking trails and swimming holes, it's hard to believe that it's so close to San Francisco. You can also walk into town, which we did daily. The house is beautiful, comfortable, and stocked with everything you could need on your vacation. My three boys (2, 6 and 8) thought it was one of the best getaways we've been on and keep begging to go back!
