This is a magical setting. Located in enchanting Downtown Larkspur with sunny views of San Francisco Bay, Mt. Tamalpais, surrounding hills and downtown Larkspur. This craftsman style 3 level home is surrounded by charming gardens and fruit trees.

There is a shaded outdoor patio area, sunny and Wisteria shaded decks and a redwood hot tub to relax and watch the stars. Perfect after a day of touring. This charming house has a stone fireplace and wood stove.

This is a great location to take advantage of all that Marin County, the San Francisco Bay Area and Napa and Sonoma Wine country has to offer. This Home is Minutes from Larkspur Ferry, which is a great way to get to San Francisco.

Larkspur, which is out of the fog belt, was a vacation destination for San Franciscans before the Golden Gate Bridge was built.

Located on a level lot 2 blocks from the main street in Larkspur which features include cafes, 4 star restaurants and entertainment.

From the wine country in the north, the city of San Francisco just to the south, and all of the great outdoor activities available in Marin and on the Bay, this is a place you'll be just as happy to hang out and enjoy all that the Bay Area offers.

Activities (on site and nearby):

Shopping, Sightseeing, Restaurants, Kayaking, Sailing, Boating, Swimming, Surfing, Windsurfing, Biking, Mountain Biking , Wildlife Viewing, Hiking, Fishing from Saulsalito, Rock Climbing, Fitness Center/Gym, Antique Shopping, Cinemas/Movie Theater s, Live Theatre/Music, Museums, Horseback Riding. Whale watching.

Our Larkspur Retreat is a rustic yet comfy 4+ LOFT bedroom house nestled in a sunny Larkspur. It's within walking distance of all the great dining spots in town like the Lark Creek Inn, Left Bank, and Larkspur Café Theater, Rulli's Café. It's also just a short hike to a scenic trail heads in Baltimore Canyon and King Mountain leading you to the hiker's paradise of Mt. Tamalpais, Mt. Tam Watershed and Muir Woods. Not only is this a hiker's paradise, but this is also the birthplace of mountain biking and all the great Marin mountain biking is right here. This slice of heaven is also just 10 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge so all of San Francisco's cultural riches are a short drive or Ferry ride away. And it's also a quick trip to many other great spots such as Stinson Beach, Point Reyes National Park, Berekely, the East Bay and the Napa Sonoma Wine Country.

Suitability: Kid Friendly, ** Smoking Not Allowed **

About The Owner

Empty Nesters.

The Owner purchased this house in 1991

Why The Owner chose Larkspur

This has been a family home for the last 21 years. Now that the kids are grown it just makes sense to have the home available to Bay Area visitors so that others can enjoy what we have known for all this time.

What makes this house unique

Larkspur has been a San Francisco get away since before the Golden Gate bridge was built. It is convenient to the city of San Francisco, yet without all the hassles and noise of the city life. There are some great and I mean great restaurants a short walk into town (2 blocks). The hiking trails in Marin are phenomenal and plentiful for all levels. The best weather in the bay area and lush gardens surrund you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your home. We did a lot of family things around the area and San Francisco. It was very comfortable for 9 adults.

Wonderful location for a family getaway

  • 4 out of 5
We really enjoyed our time at this home. Comfortable with lots of space to spread out despite having 8 of us there. Our kids loved the gardens. Great access to all sorts of activities and an easy walk to restaurants, park, and a grocery store. Wish the hot tub had been in better shape, we ended up not using it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at the house. I Apologize for what turned out to be a crack in the uptake line which caused a low water level in the hot tub. Please be assured it has been fixed and if you book again I will be sure to include a free night.

Wedding party from Scotland

We had a wonderful stay in this lovely, comfortable home. There was a disaster when the fridge died on the 2nd day but the owner could not be more helpful and, when it could not be fixed immediately, arranged for a small fridge to be purchased and installed so that we could keep essentials like milk and fruit juice fresh for our grandchildren and arranged a satisfactory compensation payment at the end of our visit. The house is spacious and the garden is large. There is a beautiful wisteria covered balcony where we could enjoy relaxing in the sunshine. The hot tub came on later in the evening and we were all asleep early, tired out by sightseeing. The house being on 3 floors allowed each part of our family to enjoy their own space. North Bay Taxis proved to be excellent and saved us trying to drive on unfamiliar roads. Warmly recommended. Try the Fenix restaurant in San Rafael especially their live music night for Jazz and Blues. All the local eateries are first class. The frozen Yoghurt place is a must.

Clean, comfortable, great location

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful family reunion at this house. There are spacious areas on different levels inside and outside where groups can separate and do their own thing. The furniture and beds are comfortable--you can enjoy your vacation without leaving the house. Much more room than I anticipated--the pics and description don't do it justice. You can walk to Rullis and Larkspur restaurants, yet the house is perched on a quiet spot above the trees. Nice view of St. Patricks bell tower. The Golden Gate ferry to San Francisco is a few minutes by car or bike. Oh yes, great off-road bike and walking trails nearby.

Wine tasting in nearby Napa and Sonoma Counties. Marin itself is famous for Mountain Biking, Hot Tubs and great music(ians). Larkspur is a great spot to visit San Francisco or the Wine Country. There is a great music scene, plenty of hiking and solid top resturants. Major cities in the county include Mill Valley, Tiburon, Larkspur, Sausalito and San Rafael. Plenty of Bay activities, ferry to San Francisco and nicest weather in the area make Larkspur an ideal spot to come and stay.
