Property Description

Surround yourself with forest and creeks at this West Marin vacation home, where you'll enjoy gorgeous west Marin views with hiking and mountain biking from the house.

Conveniently located less than three miles from the town of Fairfax, this bright four-bedroom home is just down the road from renowned Spirit Rock, San Geronimo Golf Course, 45 minutes to the coast and hiking or mountain biking from the front door. Tamarancho is a 15 min. mountain bike ride from the house offering fabulous single track and the famous flow trail. Fairfax (5 miles) has a number of restaurants, shops and the galleries of Point Reyes Station or Central Marin featuring towns of Tiburon, Sausalito, San Anselmo and more are about 10 miles.

Enjoy panoramic views of San Geronimo ridges from the living room and deck. The main great room features a combined kitchen and living room with large windows, a fireplace for crisp evenings and foggy mornings.

The open kitchen, with its generous counter space, modern appliances and dishwasher, and plentiful cooking tools, is a natural gathering space. Guests can enjoy wine and appetizers around the kitchen before filling their plates in the dining room for eight.

But it is the stunning outdoor space that makes a visit to Woodacre so memorable. Guests can visit the many outdoor options hiking, golfing, biking or trips to the beach enjoying breakfast on the deck or late afternoon sun; take a soothing soak in the private hot tub.

And although this peaceful home encourages family and friends to relax with limited cellular service, it is not without modern comforts and has a TV and cable. Flip on a DVD, browse the wireless Internet, or host a board game tournament for the ages. There's also a land line phone and a washer and dryer for your convenience.

This cozy home has sleeping space for a maximum of eight adults (but better suited for a total of 6 due to the bathroom situation) and two children, its important to mention that there are only two bathrooms, one bathroom serves the room on the main floor and the living room, the second bathrooms is adjoined to two bedrooms upstairs, the third bedroom upstairs has to go through one of the other two rooms to get to the bathroom. From the driveway there are 10 stairs up to the front door where a large deck looks out to the surrounding hills of San Geronimo ridge. Three bedrooms have queen size beds, the fourth bedroom has a double with a single bed in a loft. One bedroom has a bathroom that serves as the bathroom downstairs, while the upstairs rooms have a shared bathroom.

Hikers, bikers, and nature enthusiasts will feel right at home in this beautiful pocket of Marin County, where the surrounding hills of Golden Gate Park provide access to San Geronimo ridge, Mt Tamalpais or Samuel Taylor Park. Point Reyes, Drakes Beach, Bolinas with surfing or paddle boarding and Stinson beach are 20 miles away where you'll enjoy countless species of wildlife along the way.

Jan to March there is the possibility of skiing while enjoying San Francisco. I often do day trips to Sugar Bowl or Sierra, leaving by 7 and returning by 6 the same day but this a a long day offering 3 hours of skiing. If you do this during the week its possible this would be tough to do around a weekend.

Fortunately it cooled off on our 2nd day so we were able to enjoy it more. We numbered five guests total and we all fit extremely well into this home - plenty of independent space and also good-sized gath... Read More

Great escape to the woods

We were a party of 5 for four days over Labor Day weekend. The house is quite an secluded, but not too far off the beaten path. The hot tub was enjoyable and the interior is modern and accommodating for family cooking and fun.
