Evelyn's cottage is charming and the inside is even better than the pictures. Lots of sunshine, but lots of privacy. The location in Lafayette is perfect for walking to restaurants, stores and BART. Hope to stay with her again soon.

Evelyn was a great host! She made us feel very welcome when we first arrived. She spent a few minutes going over the cottage and what it had to offer and then left us to enjoy it. The kitchen area was perfect for home-cooked meals while away. It was great to not have to eat out for every meal.

We’ve now had the pleasure to stay a second time with Evelyn in the Cottage. And while I am delighted to sing well-deserved praises I have only one reservation in offering this glowing recommendation; this gem will become well known. The cottage is truly a gem. Well appointed, the cottage, tucked away in a garden, is a like a retreat. Evelyn is a wonderful and gracious hostess. The cottage well furnished as if a second home, is in easy walk to downtown Lafayette and the Bart. I can’t say enough about it. We look forward to many more visits to this home away from home.

Evelyn's cottage is quiet, clean and oh so peaceful! It was exactly what I needed. The best part about the cottage is Evelyn. She is amazing. I will defiantly be back....if only just to see her again! Thank you to Evelyn!

What a find! Tucked away, off of a quiet side street in Lafayette, we walked down the drive to discover a very lovely, well appointed cottage with a kitchen and dining area, living room, bath, and a separate bedroom. It was like a home away from home. Evelyn was also a delight. She warmly greeted us and wanted to make sure that we could settle in, noting that there were some goodies for breakfast in the fridge. We could come and go as we please, and knew that she was there, if needed. We travel to Lafayette at least two times a year, and had enjoyed other accommodations, but after discovering this “home away from home,” Evelyn tops our list. Truly a gem.

a delightful house, very self contained and comforatble, with lovely gardens for relaxing. Easy walk to town, and to the BART, to the City for conferences at rush hour, daily. Superb value. Evelyn was very welcoming and then available, but not at all obstrusive. We will definitely plan to visit, and stay, with her again.

I live in the home in front of cottage. I teach Diamond Approach (psychology/spiritual
path) Travel throughout the year. Lafayette Reservoir is about 2 miles from house - 2 great trails: 1 is 2.7 miles and the other 4.8 miles. GREAT WALKS.
