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!

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!
I almost had to pinch myself upon arriving—even the incredible photos can’t do the location/cottage/view justice. The house was stocked with everything you could need, plus so many unexpected extras: fresh flowers, trail maps, great novels, etc. I stayed for two weeks and never wanted to leave! Marianne is the loveliest host...so kind and generous.
perfect retreat in Mill Valley
Great location, views, and surroundings. We cannot wait to return!
This is one of the best VRBO's I've stayed at. A real getaway but still close to everything. You are perched on the side of Mount Tam overlooking the valley below and the bay in the distance. The home is very comfortable and complete with all you will need. Mill Valley is a treasure as well.
