Overview

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

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay definitely gave us a "homey" feel. Everything was well maintained. So much to look at in the home - books, artifacts and antiques. I feel this is a home that is more for adults. While the road to the house could be a little tricky and requires you to drive carefully, the house is well worth arriving at. So much to do and explore in the area - Muir Woods and the Ocean, the Marin Headlands area, Sausalito, Angel Island and, of course, Mill Valley. Good restaurants we ate at: The Dipsea in MV and Sam's in Tiburon. Would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful property!

We had such a great time staying here! The views were breathtaking and the property was equally enjoyed by the kids and the adults! We hope to return in the future.

Amazing views! Fantastic retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this eclectic retro home. It was very comfortable for our party of four adults. Amazing views of the Bay and SF in the front and Mt. tam in the back! Windows everywhere to optimize the views and comfortable outdoor seating to enjoy it any time of day. Easy access to trails. This was our first trip to this area of the country. I should have realized that the roads would be narrow and winding with some steep drop offs, but it caught me off guard - first few times up to the house were hair-raising, but definitely worth it!

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.
