    This place is amazing. Apart from the house itself (which is incredible), you are 10 minutes walk one direction to Cascade waterfall and trails; 10 minutes walk the other direction to artisanal coffee and world class cuisine. Great playroom for young kids. Fireplace. Wrap-around decks. Babbling stream to sleep by. Can't say enough good things about this place. And Kelly - the owner - has exquisite taste, handles the paperwork very professionally, and is a gracious host. Very happy she chooses to share this little slice of awesomeness with the world. 26 February 2015 - 23:22:58

    It was great to be in a peaceful environment, and all 8 of us enjoyed the house, the trees, the birds, the creek. It was nice to be within walking distance of the town and the park. It was also nice to be so close of a drive to Muir Woods and Mount Tamalpais. Would definitely recommend Muir Cottage! 29 June 2015 - 18:09:26
  3. Lovely, spacious and charming cottage which makes the PERFECT base for exploring the town and numerous hiking trails of Mill Valley (even without a car!). It was easy to fall into the routine of a daily hike followed by relaxation on the lovely wraparound porch, or reading a book under the shade of the redwood trees. Bright and airy, with lots of privacy and space, I will definitely be booking this place again for future vacations! 23 July 2015 - 14:12:24

    Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. We are on the way to the airport very reluctantly! We had such an amazing trip, we are trying to figure out why we don't live here!! All of your recommendations were great- you have started somewhat of an obsession with geocaching for our family- how fun! The kids are saying this was our best trip yet. 03 August 2015 - 03:07:12

    My family has just returned from a week long holiday at Muir Cottage in lovely Mill Valley. The location of Muir Cottage is absolutely perfect for exploring around town on foot or for hiking some of the local trails that begin just steps from the front door. It is also perfectly situated for excursions all around Marin, trips to San Francisco, to Napa, and beyond. The cottage itself stands amid giant California redwoods, in such tranquil surroundings that it feels like a real retreat from the daily grind at home. Muir Cottage is just beautiful and so well appointed, my whole family really felt at home and we just loved it all! We hope to return soon. 15 August 2015 - 03:38:45

    We stayed at the Muir Cottage in May 2015 and had a wonderful weekend with our parents and son. We needed a tranquil spot that could accommodate both sets of parents and our little family of three. This house was perfectly relaxing and casually luxurious and the location was just dreamy amidst the redwoods. There was great hiking for those who wanted exercise and great lounging for those less mobile/motivated. The first floor master suite was a must have for my in-laws (father-in-law is not very mobile). The ample outdoor space was great for all. The house provides the opportunity for everyone to be together spaciously. Perfect. The owners are very thoughtful and check in via text to make sure all is well. Loved some of the small touches that included a basket of new socks at the front door, so the no-shoes rule is easy to comply with and he bottle of wine. Absolutely perfect experience I will remember forever. 16 September 2015 - 17:53:10

    I have to express that the days that we stay in the house were incredible. I have to congratulate Kelly because the place is magical. The wood, the comfort, the decoration, all the details in the house are expectacular. We never going to forget those days. 30 September 2015 - 18:27:08

    I contacted Kelly, the owner, because my husband and I wanted to book the house for two weeks for a retreat and place to write. On the very first morning, huge construction equipment showed up, bringing with it lots of people and lots of noise. I called Kelly and she quickly discovered that a month long city construction project was just getting underway. Knowing that the entire point of our trip was quiet, she very graciously allowed us out of the contract and refunded our money. Of course it was quite a disappointment to us but working with Kelly made it easier. She treated us like people, not like dollars. It's very clear that the good mojo in the place has a lot to do with her. We'll hopefully get to try again but either way, the experience reminded me that you can still count on the goodness of people. I can say with complete confidence that anyone working with Kelly can trust they are in good hands! 29 October 2015 - 00:36:12

    Loved the house and location. We had a quick family get together and the best description is that it was perfect. Kelly was very attentive, responsive and professional. We loved her taste and we live in a similar home in the midwest that tries to have the casual elegance of hers. 15 November 2015 - 18:30:04

    Muir Cottage is the perfect getaway. Nestled in the Redwoods, only a few minutes walk from amazing hiking trails and swimming holes, it's hard to believe that it's so close to San Francisco. You can also walk into town, which we did daily. The house is beautiful, comfortable, and stocked with everything you could need on your vacation. My three boys (2, 6 and 8) thought it was one of the best getaways we've been on and keep begging to go back! 28 July 2016 - 22:51:48

    Like a fairytale cottage surrounded by forest complete with redwoods and a stream flowing through the property. Spacious and very comfortable with lots of beautiful Windows, a large peaceful deck and nice furnishings. A short walk to the charming town or walk to several woodsy hikes from the front door. We didn't want to leave. 09 August 2016 - 05:35:38

    Muir Cottage has all the comforts of home, movies, games, a fully stocked kitchen, . It is beautiful and quiet. Hearing the creek running past the house is very soothing. The property location is great for hiking, biking, walking to town, traveling to wine country or San Francisco. Having redwood trees just outside the front door was really cool too. I would recommend this home to all of my friends. 11 March 2016 - 20:29:38

    This gorgeous house is so stylish and clean that it feels like you're staying in a five-star hotel instead of someone's home! My husband and I stayed there with our two young kids, plus two friends, and it still felt spacious. The location -- it's nestled among redwoods, just minutes away from downtown Mill Valley (tons of boutiques and great restaurants) -- is pretty magical, too. No complaints here! 11 December 2013 - 21:56:31

    Our family of 6 stayed over a long weekend in November. We walked to town each morning for coffee through what felt like a redwood forest, so quiet and peaceful. The home is lovely and comfortable with a large wrap around porch and a cozy seating area around the fireplace. Great communication with Kelly before and during our stay. Were keeping this one for a future visit. 12 November 2017 - 16:08:00

    We were not sure exactly what we were getting into, but we could not have been happier with our stay in Mill Valley. A lovely town nestled into Muir Woods. Kelly could not have been a better host! Highly HIGHLY recommend staying here! 15 November 2017 - 18:50:00

    Amazing home in an absolutely gorgeous setting. Photos are accurate and the place is even better in person. 03 October 2017 - 16:45:00

    I came to stay in the cottage with 4 girlfriends for a weekend girls' trip, and we had an AMAZING time. Kelly was a wonderful host - we had a whole weekend planned to spend time in Sonoma, but the Nuns fire broke out causing the whole area to be in smoke (and devastation closer to Sonoma). Kelly was very understanding and helpful as we considered whether or not to cancel our stay. Ultimately we decided to move forward with the reservation, and we are SO GLAD that we did! Not only was the smoke not an issue, but the house & area felt magical. The home is gorgeous - we felt tucked away in the woods and saw deer scampering by on multiple occasions outside. It's a very warm, comforting, relaxing space. Completely stunning with so much natural light and windows to see the beautiful surrounding landscape. The beds were welcoming and super comfortable, and the whole home felt like just that -- a home. A place to retreat to relax and enjoy ourselves! Kelly checked in after we'd arrived to ensure everything was ok (which it was :) The fireplace was a great touch, and we spent a lot of time relaxing in the common room by the fire on the comfy couches. Overall the home was a delight. No complaints from anyone - the whole experience was lovely. Thank you, Kelly! 15 October 2017 - 17:35:00

    The house is just beautiful, and beautifully maintained--and everything it promised. We'd come back in a heartbeat. Thanks very much! 19 January 2018 - 14:07:00

    We love this place. Beautiful oversize living room, surrounded by redwoods with a creek wrapping around it. The beds and furnishings are all super comfortable and first rate. Highly recommend. 29 January 2018 - 19:54:00
