Plan your Bay Area holiday from this magnificent retreat surrounded by the best of Marin, San Francisco and the Napa wine country. The picturesque large A-frame home sits on a quarter acre of full grown redwoods with breath taking views of the San Francisco Bay.
Step out your door onto Mt Tam’s best trails and walk across the road to hike in world-famous Muir Woods National Redwood Forest. After a day outdoors visit downtown Mill Valley (10 minutes) or cruise over the Golden Gate into San Francisco for dinner (20 minutes). With Sausalito harbor and Stinson Beach surfing around the corner and the Wine Country 45 minutes away, our home is the perfect anchor for anything from a long Bay Area weekend or a month “in residence” in the town that some consider the most beautiful in the Bay Area.
Quiet and serene, our home has many amenities, but the best part for us are the two large decks; one with mature redwoods growing right up through the custom built decking and the other hiding a large, new hot tub in a fern and bamboo grove. Recently remodeled the home features vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, wood burning and gas fireplaces, granite countertops, new kitchen appliances, plush white carpet in master bedroom, teak deck furniture and much more.
There are 2 bedrooms, including the Master with its picture window and view of the Bay, a media room with 48” HD TV that can also sleep two with an inflatable bed and 2 full bathrooms. The spacious loft offers another space to hang out or work (if you can tear yourself away from the views long enough to use the free wireless).
Visitors tell us that planning their stay around Mt Tam and Mill Valley offers a more relaxing way to experience the entire Bay Area – close to the City and amenities, but with the feel of a local resident and plenty of space to chill. Our home is so quiet you can literally hear the hawks as they fly overhead. Come and experience it for yourself!

We enjoyed your peaceful and gorgeous surroundings this past week. Our family enjoyed relaxation and quality time together in this "little piece of heaven"! Perhaps our journeys will bring us back again! 'Til then, many blessings to you and your future guests!
We were looking for a weekend getaway for a small group of new moms who have been friends for years. Somewhere peaceful was essential and this fit the bill perfectly. The view and the deck are amazing as the pictures would lead you to believe. We walked to the popular hiking trails that lead us to Muir Woods. The drive from the main highway is a little tricky, so I recommend making it during the day the first time. Everything was clean and in excellent condition. Vessy left us to ourselves but left lots of useful printed information, which is my idea of a perfect host!
Our family (my husband and I, along with our 3 young adult children) spent 4 nights in the home over Christmas. Getting to the property was part of the fun. It was close enough to everything we wanted to do, yet far enough away for quiet and relaxation. We walked to the trail head and hiked on Christmas morning, then came back to the house and prepared a full Christmas dinner, including turkey with all the fixings and a homemade apple pie. (The knives in the kitchen could use sharpening. :) ) Having the full kitchen made it feel like a "home away from home." It was an easy commute to San Francisco, but we also took the ferry one day - which was one of my daughter's favorite things. The house is exactly as advertised, clean and well maintained. Instructions were clear and communication was good. We highly recommend this property.
If the owner/manager gave the place more TLC, the house would be lovely. After our group provided a somewhat extensive list of improvements, we were assured attention would be given to the place so future renters would be more satisfied than we were. The amenities were tacky (eg. lots of chipped dishes, frayed towels, flimsy lamps) but the view with redwoods and the hot tub were exceptional. If you have a large group, ask about the square footage.
As a resident of the Bay Area, this house provides an incredible weekend escape. It's cozy and unique and has great amenities. I would highly recommend this Mount Tam. getaway!
Property was tucked away in the mountains of Mill Valley and still convenient to town. Beautiful setting with trails nearby as well. House was a great setup for our needs, clean & well maintained. Would recommend to friends & would stay again!
The house looks exactly as it is pictured and fit our family needs perfectly. It was literally a 10 minute drive from where we needed to be the majority of our trip. The roads are quite winding and for the folks that may be motion sensitive I highly recommend sea bands (for motion sickness and bought on line via amazon). The information provided before hand helped us out greatly in regards to grocery stores, restaurants, etc. The house was clean and had all the amenities listed. Would stay here again and have recommended it to family !
