We're a family of four (kids are college age and now mostly only here to visit) who have lived in the Bay Area for the past 25+ years, and at this location for the past 9. We feel extremely fortunate to have such an incredibly beautiful and relaxing place to call home, and we very much enjoy having our guests experience this part of the Bay Area. We've worked hard to maintain a comfortable, natural feel to our property and love being surrounded by beautiful California landscape and wildlife. Having been here so long, we're a wealth of information regarding places to visit and things to do--off the beaten path.

Why Brenda chose Lafayette
Orinda is a beautiful, wooded, central location from which to access the entire Bay Area.
What makes this cottage unique
Our property is a private, secluded, retreat-like setting--the perfect place to 'come home to' after a busy day of sight-seeing, tourist activity or hard work. It offers easy freeway and BART access, yet once you're here that world is a galaxy away. We take pride in having maintained a comfortable, well-maintained but casual and welcoming environment.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We very much enjoyed the cottage and now understand the
reasons behind the superlative reviews! We have a lot of deer but
rarely do we see wild turkeys, so that was a treat, as well. Your property
is a little slice of heaven! We’d definitely consider returning in the
future and we appreciate your and Don’s thoughtfulness.
