About

You'll have a living room with fireplace and reading materials, wi-fi, and satellite TV, as well as a complete kitchen with dining area. The bathroom has a tiled shower and heated floors. The separate bedroom has a king-size bed with pillow top, luxury linens, and plush robes.

A Perfect Weekend in Tomales

5 on September 03, 2014

What can we say but perfect? The Apple Garden Cottage is a dream from the moment you walk in until the moment you leave. We arrived and let ourselves in to a lovely great room including the kitchen and fireplace living room - and the radio was playing some of our favorite classical music. Moments later Jan, the innkeeper, came to greet us and show us around. The cottage is charming with a fabulously comfortable bedroom and a very nice bathroom. There were crackers and cheese and a bottle of their very own apple cider awaiting us - a perfect arrival. This is an ideal spot from which to poke around the east side of Tomales Bay and Nick's Cove is a short ride away for dinner. You can also easily visit Point Reyes National Park/Shoreline as well as go interior to the wineries of Sonoma County. Jan leaves the makings of a wonderful breakfast at your door each morning. We found ourselves eating a late lunch/early dinner of oysters and then being drawn magnetically back to the cottage for our evenings around the fire with a glass of wine. No need to be out on the roads at night when you have such a comfortable accommodation awaiting you. If you are in the area you cannot do better - we commend Jan for being such a perfect hostess!

Perfect place. Great owners. Thank you


A thoroughly wonderful experience

I'm almost tempted not to write too glowing a review lest I let the secret out...but that wouldn't be fair to Jan, the proprietor, who was so wonderful to us during our stay. The accommodations are perfect--beautifully appointed, luxurious, and tasteful. The hospitality is impeccable--delicious breakfasts, thoughtful assistance, and a hostess in Jan who goes out of her way to ensure a memorable experience. I couldn't have been more pleased with my decision to stay at AppleGarden Cottage.


Perfect blend of luxury and nature

5 on July 02, 2014

The cottage is a nicely decorated one-bedroom home, complete with full kitchen, living room, and private porch. Towels and linens are high quality. Jan, the proprietor, delivers a gournet breakfast each morning, typically including fresh eggs or berries from the farm and other local meats and produce. The cottage is located among farms outside of Tomales, with beaches and hikes and excellent restaurant choices in Point Reyes Station or Petaluma just a short drive away. We have stayed here every year for the past 4 years and plan to continue our annual visits.


Wonderful!

A wonderful, relaxing and friendly place to stay to get away from it all. Perfect cool climate, very comfortable cottage, great accomodations with all of the latest amenities and great homeade breakfast. Beautiful countryside. Restaurants for dinner were not far away.

A Peaceful, Quality Get-Away and Rural Delight

4.6 on April 03, 2014

If you're a foodie, you must go here. We greatly appreciated the quality of the ingredients and the lovely breakfasts. Pat, the proprietor, even prepared gluten-free scones and muffins that were excellent. Lots of fine touches around the cottage, comfortable bed, easy to use appliances/heating. I loved looking out the kitchen window in the morning while the cows grazed nearby (20 ft!) and the wild turkeys trotted across the pasture.


The perfect place to stay

5 on April 03, 2014

We spent 4 wonderful, quiet days and nights at the Apple Garden Cottage last week of March 2014. The cabin was beautiful in all respects, bed very, VERY comfortable, Jan's cooking was amazing. She and her husband were the perfect hostess and host, around in case you needed anything but unobtrusive. The cabin is close to the town of Tomales and Pt. Reyes Station but one felt like one was in the middle of the country at the same time. It was a perfect stay and we are making this cabin our yearly birthday trip.
