        Loved Everything!!!

        Teresa was a very nice host!!! The cottage was in a very nice, quiet area and within a beautiful walking distance of the quaint town of Fairfax. Lots of great restaurants!!!! We loved everything!!!!

        5/5 Excellent


          The cottage is everything and more. Walking out to see the redwoods right there was amazing. Teresa and her family are the best. Everyone made us feel very welcome. My husband and I are doing my bucket list and hopefully we will be able to come back and stay here so I can finish it. I’ve been using airbnb and Vrbo for years and this was by far the best place yet.

          5/5 Excellent

          This was like staying in a friend's cottage. Every need was anticipated and we were so cozy in this adorable, serene cottage. The online pictures don't do it justice! Loved being a ten-minute walk to a cute downtown with great restaurants. We'd come back to Fairfax just to stay in this cottage.

            Perfect getaway in charming cottage.

            Our family of four really enjoyed this property. We could walk in to Fairfax downtown with lots of restaurants, yet enjoy the silence and great feel of the charming place. We hope to be back very soon and stay longer. The owner is also great and lives right next door.
