About the property

Mid-Century Mountain Home with Breathtaking Views

A nature lover's dream....

The large windows of this rustic home look out on the San Francisco Bay and the trails of Mount Tam are literally right out your door. It's hard to believe that San Francisco is a mere 14 miles away when you wake up to deer in the garden and the smell of pine.

There's a large patio surrounding the property from which to enjoy the ever-changing vistas of San Francisco and Mt. Tam . And despite the mountain setting, it's only a mile drive down to the quaint Mill Valley town square.

This cozy artist's retreat is located at the head of a hiking trail which will take you as far as Stinson Beach (if you've got the energy) or as close as the little stream about half mile down the fire trail.

A large fireplace, terrazzo floors, eclectic antiques and interesting old books... It is very much a retreat whether you want to stay put & relax, sail or mountain bike, experience small town life in Mill valley or explore the many sights in San Francisco.

Sleeping: 2 bedrooms (1 king + 1 queen)


Fully Equipped kitchen

Washer / Dryer

Ample parking (rare in this neighborhood)

Peaceful and Beautiful Retreat Home

  • 5 of 5

This lovely mountain home is a wonderful place for a retreat. It is so peaceful and the views of the bay including the San Francisco skyline are breathtaking! Our daughter and grandson, from Washington D.C. joined us for a couple of days at this property. Our 12 year old grandson loved exploring the suroundings with our small dog. Our daughter enjoyed the peacefulness and homestyle comfort.

Fantastic Views

  • 4 of 5

The house is situated in a very quite location half way up a mountain. The views are spectacular and the house is quite and spacious. The style and decor is quite dated but in keeping with the age of the house and while this works fine, some might find the beds and sofas uncomfortable.

World Class Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Susan, the homeowner, is fabulous and so flexible and accommodating. The home has all you will need with so many neat home character features, antiques, tons of books, and on top of the serenity and quiet setting the home is situated between Mt Tam in your backyard and clear sweeping views on the SF Bay in the front yard. It's breathtaking. And all the birds right over you and in front of you, I got to experience why this place is so special and magical. I felt so deeply inspired here and it's just the perfect place to relax and allow your imagination to be free. There's even a great trail behind the home to hike as well that leads to a waterfall. I'll definetly be back here. I stayed with my mother and my girlfriend and we just had such a wonderful experience. Great space for your pets to play too. You will love this home!

We feel so grateful to have found this place and had the opportunity to stay for 2 months. Susan was beyond kind and accommodating and the home was "perfect". The views are spectacular and the home itself is beyond cozy. The decor with antiques, books and paintings take you back in time and make you want to sit back, pour a martini, put on some Frank Sinatra or Herb Alpert, and relax! We also loved the easy access to hiking right out the door and the property is partially fenced which was great for our 2 labs who, after their daily hike, loved exploring and chasing the squirrels. But the best part was the "feel" of the peaceful and beautiful. Although we live close by we plan to visit again...hope to make it at least a yearly event. I cannot recommend this place enough for a weekend or longer stay. We LOVE this home! It is a truly special place!

Great Escape!

I live in Tennessee and have several adult children that live in California... in planning my yearly trip there in 2014, I found this place on VRBO... it couldn't have been a more positive experience!... Susan was absolutely wonderful to work with and the place has a magical feeling!... great location, very clean and comfortable, leaving us with the feeling 'we could so live here'...thank you for memories we will always cherish!

Absolutely magical!

  • 5 of 5

This quiet, mountain-side retreat couldn't be more enchanting. The original 50's vibe and authentic vintage decor makes this cozy home so welcoming. The hills are filled with trails that wander from the backyard up thru redwoods and over creeks to the breathtaking views of the bay and ocean. Such a relaxing and peaceful environment, perfect when it's time to recharge. There's something special for each and everyone in the family to appreciate. Thank you so much for opening your family's home, so we could enjoy a little slice of paradise. We will be back!
