Located in beautiful West Marin, our space is one that offers tranquility and refuge.  We have hosted many happy gatherings (i.e. Easter egg hunts, BBQ + live band birthday celebration, and even a small wedding) and we look forward to hosting you during your stay.   The land is fertile; guests can also pick apples, tomatoes, peaches, blackberries, grapes or anything that is in season and available in our garden or on our land.  At night, enjoy the twinkling lights and hanging mason jars in the trees. We are three miles from Samuel P. Taylor State Park, natural pools at the Inkwells, and miles of hiking.  Our property is about 45 minutes from Marin County beaches (Stinson, Bolinas, Limantour), Tomales Bay, Hog Island Oysters, and Pt. Reyes National Seashore. In the opposite direction, we are three miles from Roy's Redwoods and seven miles from Nicasio Valley Cheese Company (plus a seasonal pumpkin patch). This is an awesome location for relaxing on site or for being a hub for various day-trips in West Marin.  Other local amenities include a coffee shop (w/a nice bathroom, 1-mile down the road), a market/deli/burrito shop, a farm stand with local produce, and an amazing Indian restaurant all within 2-miles from the site. A well-behaved dog can stay as well but can not be left unattended.  We have a friendly Mini-Golden Retriever that likes to greet everyone.  Please note that while West Marin is mostly rural where many homes sit on large acres of land, we are still in a quiet neighborhood setting.  No loud parties, no smoking, no loud voices after 9:00 PM.

Lovely teeny oasis.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the grateful shed. I sat by the fire and had cheese and crackers, I swung on the tire, swing, said hello to the fairy castle, jumped on the trampoline, and snuggled in my cozy little space. I had dinner at the local Indian restaurant, which was delicious and then listen to some great live music at the Papermill saloon. The next morning, it was absolutely pouring. I opened all the floor to ceiling windows, snuggled in my sleeping bag, listened to music and wrote in my journal while watching the rain pound the earth, and the beautiful trees swaying in the wind. I walked a mile to the coffee shop once the rain stopped, and then walked the trail behind the property up to the fire tower. I’ll have to go back because it was too foggy to see the great view from mount barbabe(?). Jenelle and Amy were gracious hosts. I look forward to spending time there again in the future.

Great short visit!
I so enjoyed my short stay with Amy and Jenelle. Amy was super helpful and showed me around the property and told me about a great place to hike with my dog nearby. I would love to come back and stay for a longer next time! I would highly recommend this spot to anyone who would love a peaceful, beautiful place to camp.

This site had camping views, with the benefit of more modern comforts. My dog had a blast. The hosts offered to let him sleep in the shed, but I opted to have him sleep in the car because it was cool enough and a little muddy with the recent rain. The hosts were very friendly, helpful, and interesting to talk with. They really took care of all the little details, such as a local hiking guide and portable work desk. The enormous tree on the property was stunning, I've never seen anything like it before. I think my favorite moment was waking up and watching the quail graze peacefully through the large windows. A great getaway that isn't too far from civilization.

Everything was just as listed, and because of their thorough instructions, we had a very smooth stay. The property was amazing and it truly felt like we got to escape the busy Bay Area, even though we were only a few miles away. Great hidden gem.

Nice spot, quick commute from SF
Jenelle and her partner are welcoming hosts. The shed was cute and comfortable. The property is lovely! It was a nice bonus to be able to use the trampoline in the yard. I recommend this place as a nice (and close) escape from SF.

I had a peaceful stay at Jenelles property. I arrived late and was greeted with a smile and lots of information about the area. I would gladly come back to stay at the grateful shed.

Lovely place - Janelle and her family were more than welcoming! The lighted tree at night is a highlight, makes for an incredible backdrop to photos. We even got to pick apples from their apple tree!

Amy and Janelle are awesome hosts and even had a welcome kit with s’mores and maps of all the nice hikes in the area! We loved the beautiful tree and Orvis the dog was a highlight, be prepared to pet him all evening. I’d come back again 100% and would highly recommend the listing.

I loved it here so much. A lovely space with very kind hosts who provided wonderful amenities that we were expecting. Very close to a state park and recreation areas for hiking and lovely cute towns for shopping and eating. Will be back again...and I have already recommended to friends

Wonderful hosts Enchanting Campsite
Jenelle and Amy’s place was wonderful. We went during a heat wave and it was hot during the day, but we drove to Bolinas and Stinson Beach to cool down. It’s a beautiful 1/2 hour drive to the coast. Lagunitas cooled down nicely in the evening and the beautiful trees and lighting on the campsite is enchanting. We will be back.

Great first time Hipcamp experience
This was our first time using Hipcamp and we loved it. The place was as good as advertised. The space was perfect, the lights were magical, and the location was excellent. Amy and Janelle were fantastic hosts. The amenities provided such as camp toilet, electricity, water and fire pit augmented our experience. We highly recommend it!

Perfect hospitality and great location to explore the Pt. Reyes National seashore. Orvis the dog checked in regularly for a friendly visit and was charming. Would definitely recommend this site to others.

We enjoyed camping under the big Buckeye tree with the fairy lights that lit up at night. We positioned our camper van so that it faced the tree and a seasonal dry creek (would love to see it when it has water). The host's house was behind us. We had a nice conversation with the hosts and Orvis, the dog was a friendly host as well. It is located in a country setting residential neighborhood so the neighbors were spread apart.
