We just spent the weekend at Windsong Cottage, and for us, from the amenities to the view, it was absolute perfection. We decided on it because it looked beautiful on the website and the price was very reasonable compared to some of the other cottage lodgings in the area. We arrived and let ourselves in, and were soon greeted by Tony, the proprieter, who warmly welcomed us, showed us the basics, and left us to our privacy. The view, out of 3 large windows, is of a 4-horse pasture with Tomales Bay and hills in the background. It is calming and mesmerizing. The bed is extremely comfortable. Here are the amenities: kitchenette - table, stove, sink, well stocked cupboards & fridge, including fresh fruit, homemade banana bread, english muffins, milk, juice, coffee, eggs, butter. Microwave, coffeemaker & toaster. Tap water is delicious to drink. Big, tiled shower and big showerhead, fluffy towels. Wood burning stove. Big, clean, private hottub with view of stars. Big windows that open to let in the breeze.Comfortable, big couch. Rocking chair. Small TV & telephone (in case you must).NO INTERNET & LIMITED CELL RECEPTION - YEAH!! Plenty of lamplight - or not. Small, newish weber BBQ. Walking sticks and information about what to do in the area, books. Plenty of closet space and extra blankets. Small table & chairs outside. Since it is a yurt, it is a round cottage with a big round skylight right over the bed - sublime! The space is roomy and the decor eclectic. The attention to detail to provide every comfort was amazing. It is almost one mile north of town on Hwy 1, very easy to get to. We had sunny weather, but are returning when it's not - this place is great, rain or shine. We also had great meals at Stellina, Olema Inn and Olema Farmhouse, and also a great picnic with cheese, bread and deli stuff from cowgirl Creamery. We ate at the picnic tables at Drake's Beach - the visitor center there blocks the wind. Hiking at the Lighthouse, Chimney Rock and Limantour was windy but worth it. And Tony was a great host. This is a place for people who don't want everything new and matching, or maid service. This is not a hotel. If you stay, remember - this is someone's home - just not attached. Pick up after yourself, do your dishes and leave it better than you found it. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
