“Peace in russian hill”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

A warm, comfortable tidy cottage tucked away in a big city! The perfect place to base yourself when exploring San Francisco. Close to transport, shops and dining. Polk street is easy walking distance to experience excellent food! The bed was amazingly comfortable and provided the best night sleep ever. Highly recommended!

Stayed May 2014, traveled with friends

The cottage is hidden away behind a building on a steep residential street in Russian Hill. I really liked the location as the sleep quality was great. The garden at the cottage entrance was stunning upon first view and then refreshing each time we arrived.

I felt safe the entire stay. The neighborhood was upscale.

The character in the cottage is cozy and decorated with taste. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom clean and well stocked with cozy towels.

I'd go back for sure.

I left my phone in the room and they mailed it to me the day I texted to request it be sent. They didn't have to do that but they did anyway.

Honesty goes a long way with me.

This is Annie's Cottage in San Francisco. We've been coming 1-2 times a year for about 15 years. It is our "home" away from home. You won't find anything like it.
Nestled in the Russian Hill district, it is quiet and accommodating. You can easily walk to neighborhood shops, restaurants and catch a bus or a cable car.
Annie's home is set back away from the street. She has a beautiful, serene garden and koi pond. The lower level is the room she rents. The room is spacious and comfortable plus a nice balcony. It is beautifully furnished with antiques. The room is like having a small studio apartment (without a full kitchen.) However, there is a refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, toaster and electric teapot for hot water. Cabinets are stocked with oatmeal, cereal, tea, coffee. We buy fresh fruit and snack food at the market.
Annie's Cottage - Unique - Centrally located to all of the sites in the city - Comforts of home

Room Tip: Reserve early because she fills up fast.

We stayed at Annie's Cottage for 6 nights and we could not have picked a better place to stay. The location was brilliant, the cable car runs a 2 minute walk either to Union Square Area or going the other way to Fisherman's Wharf - what could be better. Great neighbourhood - coffee shops, a small supermarket and good restaurants - everything you need.

The cottage lived up to all its reviews - lovely and comfortable, clean, spacious, quiet and the balcony is an added bonus.

All is all a fantastic find. We will recommend to anyone travelling from the UK.

Our first trip to CA and the first two nights we stayed at Annie's Cottage. Husband & I were greeted by Gilly since Annie was out of town, she meet us outside on the street right before you walk in to the secret garden then to our getaway. Gilly was very very pleasant with a great smile, gave us great tips on the neighborhood, places to go in the area. We loved the location of the cottage, we walked every where, Fisherman Wharf, Lombard Street, down the street for all kinds of restaurants for dinner, coffee shops down the street for our morning cup of java. The cottage was clean comfortable, comfy bed with private deck to use if we wanted to, it was cold in early June so we didn't sit outside. We are planning to go back in 2014 and will definitely be calling Annie first for availability, thank you Annie and Gilly for making our vacation one to remember!!!

My father and I stayed in Annies cottage two nights last week. Annie was out of town, yet still got back to us in a very timely manner. Her cottage is adorable and priced well compared to other accommodations in San Francisco. The location was fantastic. We would most definitely stay here again. Thank you Annie and Gilly!

When we got to Annie's Cottage it was late, so we didn't have the opportunity to really see it lit up in all it's glory. In the morning we woke up to see an amazing view on the back porch. Annie's garden was just as it looked in pictures and our room was nicely decorated and cozy.

We totally got sense of privacy, even though the room we were in was attached to the main house. The way the entrances were configured, the inn keeper entered the garden and went to the left and up, while we went to the right and down.

Annie and her boyfriend were very accommodating and recommended a ton of places to visit. They also told us how to get away torn efficiently and cheap.

Probably the best part about this place was its location. We were either walking distance from everything we wanted or we could just hope on the Hyde / Powell street trolley. The stop for the trolley was only about 300 ft from the inn.

I would recommend this place to anyone thinking about staying in the San Francisco area for a romantic getaway.
