Separate Guest House on owner's property near to Mt. Tam Hiking Trail
We have lived on Middle Ridge for over 30 years. The cottage was our home while we were building our main house on the same lot. Now the cottage is a rental. We have met so many wonderful people who have stayed there over the years. Everyone who has lived there has enjoyed the brilliant space.
Marianne purchased this Cottage in 1978
Why Marianne chose Mill Valley
Our Mt. Tam perch has the best weather and some of the best views in town. You can walk out the door and be on a mountain trail in minutes or drive a few miles and be in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
What makes this Cottage unique
Our two level cottage is built on the Middle Ridge of Mt. Tam facing east. It has decks off of French doors on each level with dog gates to keep pets in or out. The downstairs bedroom is perfect place to tuck in for a dreamy night’s sleep – the morning light, birdsong and breezes will awaken you, unless you close the curtains. Walk up the spiral staircase to a great room flooded with natural light. This open area has a writing desk, kitchenette, napping loft, dinette and living room. In the adjacent room there is a library and a TV. Stay in, relax and enjoy the sweeping views or step out to experience any of the many adventures the Bay Area has to offer. Come and enjoy!

Peaceful quiet paradise
The house, property and host exceeded my expectations! We wanted a quiet, green filled environment and got both. We loved the views from both deck patios and spent time enjoying them with morning coffee listening to birds and evening dinner & wine. Great hiking nearby, and right from the house. Our host was very thoughtful and the house had everything we could have wanted. Kitchen was well stocked, the layout was fantastic -upstairs an office area with big window looking into the forest, kitchen & table with sofa with Mountain View, another room with tv and a great place to read by the big window, downstairs master suite with comfy bed, big closet, & bath. A great, calm place to unwind, I look forward to returning there often!
My wife were looking for a place to stay in the San Francisco area... We came across this property and decided to book it due to the photos, price and reviews... Well I have to say, the photos don’t even compare to what this home looks like in the flesh... this place is AMAZING . The owner went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed as well... out of our whole trip experience, this place was at the top of the list and we plan to return in the future for sure.
Gorgeous, Relaxing, Homey, A Step Back in Time!
We had the most relaxing few days at this peaceful cottage above Mill Valley. The view is incredible and I felt like I was just connecting with my happy hippy self for a few days. It's a great opportunity to look out on nature, take a nap up in the loft, cook a dinner and eat on the porch, or just read a book while listening to the birds. I can't wait to go back!!
This property and all it had to offer was just spectacular. It is an easy trip into San Francisco, minutes to Mt. Tamalpias, Muir Woods and Muir and Stinson beaches, an hours drive to up Sonoma and even close enough to Sacramento to visit easily. The cottage was lovely, fully equipped, beautifully decorated with amenities like heated bathroom floors! The owner was helpful and made us feel at ease. Absolutely a wonderful stay.
I am very picky and I have only praise for this property. It is the best home rental I have stayed in. If you are going to be in the San Francisco area, sign up ASAP!
Outstanding Hospitality and Relaxation!
The location and view were breathtaking! When you're in the SF area, this is a must stay location with a wonderful host Marianne. Will be back again for sure!
