My month-long stay here was memorable and relaxing. It was a great place for me as I acclimated to my new job. Everything was clean and comfortable. Jeff was a communicative and thoughtful host. The space was private and a quick drive into town. The hill is not for the faint of heart, which was a good metric on the wild country that is Marin! Such an amazing and beautiful setting which I now hold dear, in part due to Jeff’s hospitality. — Paul
