The cozy bed and breakfast cottage in Tomales, CA is surrounded by an organic apple orchard and vegetable gardens. On a small farm, it’s just minutes from Dillon Beach and Tomales Bay, and a short scenic drive to Point Reyes and Bodega Bay. As the only guests on the farm, you'll appreciate the privacy while enjoying all the amenities of a B&B. 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 complete breakfast is delivered every morning to your door; the refrigerator is always stocked with organic yogurt, milk and butter, as well as eggs from the farm chickens. Home-made granola and cookies are provided as well. Your innkeeper, Jan and her husband Lou, live in the farmhouse across the driveway and have lived in the area over twenty years. Enjoy country living for a few days! The cottage is available for longer vacations as well.

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

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.

Looking forward to a return visit.

My husband and I had a wonderful get away weekend at the AppleGarden Cottage. The rooms were tastefully decorated and comfortable. The breakfasts delicious and the restaurant recommendations for dinner did not disappoint. We will be back.

FANTASTIC weekend away

We had a wonderful weekend staying in the cottage. The innkeepers were very sweet, attentive when we had questions, and quiet when we did not. The cottage was lovely (wonderful shower, great heated floors, comfy bed, cozy living room) and the breakfasts were amazing. Highly recommended!

cozy getaway

I took my husband here for his birthday this week, not quite knowing what to expect. It surpassed my best expectations! Really clean, exception little cottage, with a well-appointed kitchen, sweet and cozy living room, and delightfully comfortable and beautiful king-sized bed. We had plenty of privacy, but Jan was there when we needed her. Her breakfast, full of home-made goodies like granola, scones, and poached eggs. was divine. She had given us a large bottle of her own hard cider and some homemade cookies the night before, which we were too full to enjoy after dinner at Stellina in PR Station, which I also highly recommend. We instead took the cookies with us on our hike the next day, and will enjoy the apple cider this weekend. I plan to go back again!
