I spent a couple nights at Patricia’s on a music practice retreat (just me and my instrument). It was a great place for a productive retreat... beautiful views, well stocked kitchen, excellent location to take hikes on my breaks. As others have noted, it’s an older, rustic space,…

Terrific spot up in the trees but close to town. Full of Fairfax charm and character. I was provided everything I wanted or needed! Would stay there again in a heart beat

The eclectic decor and knick knacks made my stay even more interesting and enjoyable than I imagined. So much personality! The penultimate Marin county cottage? I say yes!

We were happy to host you at the cottage. The cottage is over 100 years old - yes, as you noticed the glass in the kitchen and entry are about that old. Lots of wonderful music history as well -- Chuck Day jammed here with Van Morrison +
