Luxury and Privacy among the ancient oaks
Lynne and Tim Martin
About Lynne and Tim Martin
We traveled for almost five years without a home base, living in HomeAway/VRBO properties internationally. Lynne wrote the best-selling Home Sweet Anywhere, How We Sold Our House, Created a New Life, and Saw the World about our adventures. It's now published in eight languages! We packed this house with every amenity we longed for as we traveled. It's minimalist but wildly comfortable with gorgeous linens, brand new appliances, heavenly beds and furniture, total privacy, high ceilings, big windows and a commodious outdoor room where we can enjoy the nature all around us. We want to share all this peace, comfort and beauty with you when we hit the road now and again! We are certain you'll love it! For a few days, a few weeks, or even longer, it can be YOUR Home Sweet Anywhere.
Lynne and Tim Martin purchased this House in 2015
Why Lynne and Tim Martin chose Templeton
Creekside Cottage is unique. It's on a gorgeous country lane covered with an arch of oaks. There are no neighbors nearby, and the simple facade belies the dramatic interior, where fifteen-foot ceilings and huge windows embrace a magnificent stand of old California oaks. Resident deer, squirrels and hundreds of birds are our only neighbors. And yet, Trader Joe's is 1.5 miles away. There are 200 wineries in the area, and the beach is twenty minutes away. This is the perfect place for one or two couples to get away and enjoy the magnificent central coast!
What makes this House unique
Our home is wheelchair accessible. The master bath features a roll-in shower and accessible private toilet. Doorways are 28" wide. You can enjoy a day of touring wineries or the area's other attractions and retreat to your private oasis for a completely relaxing, romantic evening! You'll receive a signed copy of Home Sweet Anywhere when you arrive! It's just the thing for you to read on a sun-dappled lounge by the creek!

Get away from it all
This property is beautiful! Lynne and Tim thought of everything - even robes in the master bath. We loved the peace and quiet, and not seeing anything or anyone but wildlife. Lynne was a wonderful host, keeping in contact without being intrusive. We will definitely be back!
Thank you, Christy. You get first prize for the best guests ever! My house and garden were spotless after your visit. Please come back when you can stay longer!
A little piece of heaven!
We could not have picked a better place to celebrate our 28th wedding anniversary! It was a wonderful stay and a great location!
This was our second time back to this lovely house. One of our favorite things to do was to sit in the beautiful backyard with a glass of wine and watch the deer playing on the hillside. The location is perfect! The house could not be cleaner or more comfortable. Lynne has definitely thought of everything . We can't wait to plan our next trip. Thanks again for everything, Lynne!
Susan, thanks so much for your kind words. It encourages me to work even harder to make my lovely guests happy! Please, please come again! Autumn is lovely up here!
Perfect hidden getaway!
This gorgeous house was the perfect setting to celebrate our 15th anniversary with our married best friends (matron of honor and best man). Having the equivalent of two master suites was absolutely ideal for two couples. The kitchen was so perfectly arranged and well stocked with all of the necessities. We were thrilled to find a bottle of wine, cheese, and crackers awaiting us upon our arrival. These are the things that set this place apart from all of the others!! The peaceful backyard property is something you will not find in other home rentals... welcome to the coolest natural aviary you'll ever experience! We spent all of our mornings outside sipping coffee and eating breakfast and ended our evenings sipping wine by the gorgeous fire pit. We can't wait to plan our return trip!
Angie, your glowing review made my heart sing. It means so much to me when my guests appreciate Creekside Cottage as much as I do. Please return in another season. The forest changes all the time. You were excellent guests and treated my home as if it were your own.
Beautiful property in serene neighborhood.
We are two couples who like to visit what is in the area but also appreciate having a quality place to call, “home” while traveling. This property served us well. It was within 15 minutes of wineries and restaurants. It also boasts a gourmet kitchen and grill to enjoy when you have an evening at home.
This getaway is so charming. Lynne is a wonderful hostess. The home is just lovely and the creek side views are so calming and stunning. We will be back! Thank you Lynne!
Thank you for being such lovely guests. We look forward to your return!
