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 thoroughly wonderful experience

5 on July 09, 2014

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

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.

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.
