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

Beautiful, Cozy Hideaway in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

After a trying personal journey over the last couple years, my family was looking for a place to just get away from it all. This special home did not disappoint! Wonderfully and luxuriously appointed, hidden away amidst majestic redwoods, situated next to a delightful creek, just a short walk to downtown Mill Valley...this place was exactly what the doctor ordered.

For those of you with young children, it's no small blessing that the trappings of civilization are just a short drive or an app away. Food, groceries, last minute supplies...everything is right here! But the amazing thing is that when you're in the house, you really feel like you're in your own private, meditative, peaceful place. It's truly like having the best of both worlds. And meanwhile, aside from the TV, the media room is also stocked with board games, books, toys - all manner of ways to stay entertained and have fun as a family!

In short, we've absolutely loved our time here, and we're already plotting for when we can come back. Thank you for having us!

Enchanting Cottage in Mill Valley

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed three nights in this truly enchanting home. The home is filled with natural light and the views are just beautiful. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything that you might need and more. We stayed during a rainy three day period, but that didn't put a damper on our visit. We stayed busy, but I think that we could have stayed nestled in the quiet of this home surrounded by the beautiful trees and the babbling brook the entire time and been perfectly happy. I would highly recommend staying in this enchanting home in Mill Valley.

Awesome Home in the Redwoods

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent property. We were seven Moms who took a weekend 'off'. There are hiking & walking trails out the front door, expensive shops in town for window shopping, terrific restaurants (La Ginestra & Playa). The house is large enough to accommodate a large group (8) but you don't feel on top of each other. The house feels very relaxed and homey. Being able to see the redwoods out the many windows and hearing the creek outside make Muir Cottage a great retreat to relax and rejuvenate.

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!
