Perfect location, cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Quail Cottage for 5 days/4 nights, and really enjoyed our stay. The cottage was clean, and had all the basic amenities that we needed. We were two couples, and the size was cozy, but nice. It was the perfect distance from both the coast and from wine country. Robin was very friendly, and was available to answer questions or give advice if we needed it, but also gave us our space. We would definitely stay here again if we were in the area, and were pleasantly surprised by Novato, it is a charming smaller city that we had never paused in on previous visits.

A calm retreat near Sonoma and San Francisco

  • 5 of 5

The Quail Cottage was so wonderful I don't even know where to begin. It was a calm, quiet retreat from all of our busy activities in Sonoma and San Francisco. The private yard was nice for relaxing in the hot tub under the stars and having our morning coffee in the crisp morning air.

We traveled with our 10-yr-old and our 13-yr-old, so having two bedrooms and a kitchen was essential. We had breakfast at the cottage every morning before we headed out for the day. I should note that the cottage is also down the street from a park where the kids liked to go play Pokemon go! LOL

The owners are pleasant and helpful. I really can't say enough how much we enjoyed our visit and we will absolutely be returning!

Great Place, Nice Owners !

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to stay with a day's notice. I received a quick response and Paul and Robin had everything ready to go for us.They made it easy. I have lot's of wonderful things to say about Quail Cottage. It's very cute. But let's get to the important things. Very clean is probably one of my most important things I look for. This place is super clean. It's well stocked with everything you need for a stay. Nice clean linens and comfortable beds. We had beautiful weather and enjoyed breakfast on the deck each morning. Well stocked kitchen. Each night my husband and I enjoyed the jacuzzi. Very peaceful and quiet. We will return ! Thank you Paul and Robin for a wonderful stay!

Really nice!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay for a trip to the wine country or west Marin. Paul and Robin are great hosts (be sure to ask them for their recommendations where to go). The rental is immaculate and fully equipped. It really could not be nicer. Even though it rained the entire weekend, we had a great time.

Charming Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is charming and fully stocked. There was nothing we needed to go out to purchase except food. Is was immaculately clean, private and totally comfortable. The king size bed was outstanding.

There is nothing I would change.

West Novato is serene and quiet -- away from the noise of the highway. A two minute drive to lakes and pasture lands with beautiful views of Mt Burdell and popular walking paths.

Indian Valley golf course on Stafford lake is a 5 minute drive west. Five more minutes you can visit The Marin French Cheese Company, which is the oldest cheese manufacturer in the USA and a unique part of American history . Known by locals as The Cheese Factory and by its brand name, Rouge et Noir , Marin French has produced hand-crafted Artisan soft-ripened cheese since 1865.

Drive another 20 minutes and you're in Point Reyes Station- home to Cow Girl Creamery, art galleries, and shops.

Old Town Novato has history museums, a fun Irish Pub (Finnegans), antique stores, Whole Foods, & many eclectic restaurants. Hop Monk Tavern is a popular entertainment venue with great food, and their own brewery. Another favorite is the historic Rancho Nicasio Road House owned by Bob Brown (famed manager of Huey Lewis and the News). Sometimes there are big surprise performers & only a 20 minute drive through beautiful West Marin. The Larkspur Ferry Terminal is 20 minutes south on 101. Ferries leave hourly for San Francisco but the Golden Gate Bridge is just a 30 minute drive.

Historic Sonoma Square and the beginning of Wine Country is a 20 minute drive. There are more than 370 wineries for you to enjoy in Sonoma County alone. Napa Wine Country-home to around 400 wineries-is just 30 minutes away.

When you arrive we'll offer dozens more places to see and experience-all that are within 45 minutes!
