The Maple Cottage sits on a quiet 12-acre property surrounded by trees, looking down the hillside over Tomales Bay, the Giacomini wetlands and across to Point Reyes Station. While the studio does not have a kitchen, there is a mini-fridge with freezer, coffee maker, cutting board, cheese knife, and wine glasses, as well as Strauss organic cream waiting in the fridge.
The studio features a king bed with Coyuchi Organic Fair-Trade Cotton linens. High wood beam ceilings with integrated roof windows combine with radiant heated concrete floors and ample large screenless windows to create an open, inviting and relaxing ambiance. A new mini-fridge and coffee maker (with coffee and accessories) are provided, as well as EO bath amenities. Please note that this studio does not have cooking facilities. This serene getaway proudly boasts no TV nor telephone, although we do have excellent WiFi and cell reception for your convenience. We use all "green" cleaning products, just as we do in our own home.
Just outside there is a lovely terrace with a bench and table. Surrounded by tasteful landscaping, you can enjoy your morning coffee or evening wine while looking down through the forest out onto the Giacomini Wetlands and the waters of Tomales Bay.
Your cottage is over 100 yards up the driveway at the top of a quiet residential road, so zero traffic noise or light pollution. Just the sounds of nature and the clinking of your wine glasses (provided).
Just one hour from the Golden Gate Bridge, it's easy to find (only 3 turns once you exit the 101 Freeway), and with your own parking area & entry access separate from those of the owners' adjacent home. So you probably won't see or hear them, but they are nearby if you need anything. From your doorstep you can go for a stroll through the "neighborhood" and hike or bike directly into the Point Reyes National Seashore. There are several excellent restaurants and cafes within a 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk (and what a lovely walk it is!)
We are also happy to help with any concierge services you may require (dining recommendation & reservations, luggage drop-off, flower arrangements, champagne, car/driver hire, etc...). If you have any questions or need additional information, you can click "send us a message" or call and we will respond promptly.
Our garden attracts many birds, especially Juncos, Quail, Jays, and Pine Siskins. The property sits in the midst of a forest of California Live Oak, Buckeye, Douglas Fir, and Hazelnut trees, with an underbrush of Coffee Berry, Huckleberry, Elder Berry, Ferns and grasses.
The owners are a local couple who live in the adjacent house and have been using the cottage to host local authors, speakers, chefs, and musicians attending local events and enjoying their time in this magnificent area. Now it can be enjoyed by all.TripAdvisor property ID 2546187...Read more
