Little Lemon Cottage is a 1 bd/1 ba 500 sq.ft. retreat-style guest cottage located in Albany right next to Berkeley. Set in a lush & cozy backyard near Solano Ave, which is dotted with small shops and cafes, it's an ideal location for those looking for a small town feeling within proximity of the city. This cottage was built with the needs of our guests in mind, including private laundry. The cottage is located steps from an array of Albany/Berkeley culinary culture, cafes, shops, and markets.

The space
This is a private stand-alone backyard cottage in the Albany/Berkeley area, 30 min to 1 hour from SF depending on traffic. It's an ideal location especially for those visiting family and friends in the East Bay. It's located in a quiet residential backyard with its own entrance and private outdoor space. It's minutes from BART, walking trails, UC Berkeley and Oakland. If you are looking to spend most of your stay sightseeing in SF, it may be best to look for options in the city as the location may seem far for those wanting to have immediate access to San Francisco.

The open-floor plan will welcome you into a full kitchen, brand new appliances, private laundry machine, queen-size bed, flat screen TV with cable, appleTV, and Wi-Fi. We supply coffee, cotton towels, linens, and detergent. There is a sofa bed in the living room (queen-size) with plenty of plush bedding available too.

Guest access
Guests can access the entire cottage, including private back deck and side patio, which is for your exclusive use.

Other things to note
It's a quiet residential neighborhood; quiet hours are from 9PM to 8AM. We do not allow cigarette smoking or pets anywhere on the property. Some urban noise which includes the sound of BART and children playing outside may be noticeable, but hopefully not disruptive to our guests.

For safety and security, there are surveillance cameras located in the driveway and front property. These surveillance cameras are all located outside the building and ensure the safety and security of our family, our guests, and outdoor oasis. To ensure full privacy for our guests, we created a covered side patio and private back deck exclusively for the cottage.

Location

Albany, California, United States

Located in the heart of Albany, CA, the cottage is steps away from this small town's "main street,” Solano Avenue. The neighborhood is home to restaurants, local cafes, shops, and markets in the East Bay. It's a 20 min walk on the Ohlone walking trail to El Cerrito BART station, 30-60 minute drive to San Francisco depending on traffic and minutes from Berkeley's Gourmet Ghetto, UC Berkeley campus, and Oakland. It's easy to access beautiful Marin (20-30 min) and Wine Country (1-1.5 hours) via the San Rafael / Richmond bridge.

I am an Mid-Atlantic native born and raised in the Washington DC area, moved to Albany in 2011. As a daughter of two hospitality workers (a chef and housekeeper), I am attentive to the needs of my guests and aim to provide a comfortable stay in one of the best small towns by the Bay. I have spent time in other parts of the US too (Chicago, Los Angeles, Dallas) and countries (Thailand, Sweden, France) and always appreciate meeting those who have traveled especially from far away. I live in the main house on the property. I am a Human Resources professional by day and enjoy gardening, cooking, hiking and reading during my off hours. I am delighted to share this unique private backyard cottage with my guests.
