About Katy Spence
My name is Anna and Le Nid (the nest) is the lower in-law to what was my long time family home (Casa Anna) for 40 years. Due to a fall a couple of years ago, I made the decision to move to a senior community that was closer to my daughters Kerry and Katy who will be your hostesses during your stay. While I do not live in Le Nid any longer, my daughters share the lovely stories they have collected from guests. I know you will enjoy your stay in this beautiful home and town. Mill Valley has been a place for me to raise my 4 children after having relocated here from a small town in Wyoming back in 1969.
Katy Spence purchased this Guest House in 1973
Why Katy Spence chose Mill Valley
I bought this property because it was a serene and safe neighborhood to raise my children as a single parent. I had relocated to MIll Valley from Wyoming in 1969 and discovered Mill Valley and the beautiful Mt. Tamalpais to be a place of peace and safety. I have taken care of this property for over 40 years and am thrilled to be able to share it's beauty with you. If you need a larger home to accommodate your party, Casa Anna, the unit upstairs will sleep 8 guests.

There is beauty everywhere with antiques, ethnic rugs and rustic built-ins throughout the cottage. There is a flat screen television with cable, and wifi.

It is a 20 min drive to the beaches, 20 minutes to San Francisco, 10 min to Sausalito and 1 hour from Napa and Sonoma and the best wine tasting in the world.

Charming and well located
This place is right near town but still on a charming quiet street. Very comfortable. The owner was responsive and friendly. I'd easily recommend it.
Just what we needed.
At the end of a long road trip up the coast (and many hotels) we finally landed here in Mill Valley. It was just what we needed. Everything was clean and just as described. It was easy to walk to town for essentials. Communication with the owner was great, more responsive than any owner we've rented from.
Thanks again !
Perfect - location and set up
We loved staying at Le Nid. As other reviewers have stated, the location near the downtown is perfect, to stroll the Mill Valley streets, shop, check out the restaurants, hit a movie etc. Katie was friendly and helpful, met us on our way in, and wanted to hear about our weekend plans. Katie knows the area well and is very helpful with restaurant choices and suggestions for activities. We found the place perfect for my wife, daughter and me. We really enjoyed our stay, you will as well.
Lovely Place and just a short walk to city center
This was just the place for us. We were traveling with another couple and the place could not have been any better. It was very clean and well appointed. Katy was just a jewal to work with. She met us and went over everything to make sure we were comfortable. She even replaced the sofa sleeper with a very comfortable queen size bed. You want regret staying here.
The place is perfectly located, only a couple of blocks from the town center.The cottage is comfortably furnished and we really enjoyed our time there!
Nice layout for the family and easy walk to town
Nice place and a good layout for our family of four. You do notice the tenant upstairs walking around and this may bother some people. We know the area well because we used to live in Mill Valley. You can't beat the location and the unit was clean and nicely decorated. It is definately worth the money if you need two bedrooms for your group.
