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

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We were not sure exactly what we were getting into, but we could not have been happier with our stay in Mill Valley. A lovely town nestled into Muir Woods. Kelly could not have been a better host! Highly HIGHLY recommend staying here!

Beautiful home in a fairy tale setting

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 stayed over a long weekend in November. We walked to town each morning for coffee through what felt like a redwood forest, so quiet and peaceful. The home is lovely and comfortable with a large wrap around porch and a cozy seating area around the fireplace. Great communication with Kelly before and during our stay. We’re keeping this one for a future visit.

Beautiful, warm, welcoming home!

  • 5 of 5

I came to stay in the cottage with 4 girlfriends for a weekend girls' trip, and we had an AMAZING time. Kelly was a wonderful host - we had a whole weekend planned to spend time in Sonoma, but the Nuns fire broke out causing the whole area to be in smoke (and devastation closer to Sonoma). Kelly was very understanding and helpful as we considered whether or not to cancel our stay. Ultimately we decided to move forward with the reservation, and we are SO GLAD that we did! Not only was the smoke not an issue, but the house & area felt magical.

The home is gorgeous - we felt tucked away in the woods and saw deer scampering by on multiple occasions outside. It's a very warm, comforting, relaxing space. Completely stunning with so much natural light and windows to see the beautiful surrounding landscape. The beds were welcoming and super comfortable, and the whole home felt like just that -- a home. A place to retreat to relax and enjoy ourselves! Kelly checked in after we'd arrived to ensure everything was ok (which it was :)

The fireplace was a great touch, and we spent a lot of time relaxing in the common room by the fire on the comfy couches.

Overall the home was a delight. No complaints from anyone - the whole experience was lovely.

Thank you, Kelly!

Tremendous property

  • 5 of 5

This is a quintessential Mill Valley, Northern California home. It's gorgeous. Terrific views all around. So many great places to hang out inside and out. Easy walk to town. Super comfortable beds. We can't say enough good things about it. Thanks so much, Kelly!

Perfect and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time with our family during the wedding festivities in Mill Valley. The house was perfect for us and we enjoyed everything about it, the location, watching the people and dogs go by, the view, the lovely creek, the deer, and the comfort of the home inside. Loved the comfortable beds, large closets, great bathrooms, and gathering around the table. We didn't even turn on the TV! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful property for others to enjoy. Hope to come back someday. Estep family
