The space

Rustic, charming, Stable Cottage is what was once a carriage house in the early 1900s. Located in the heart of Berkeley, just around the corner from the historic Julia Morgan Theater on College Ave. which is the gateway to U.C. Berkeley's lively and inviting campus. It's less than a 10 minute walking distance to many fabulous restaurants, movie theater, great shopping, grocery stores, library and hiking trails. Public transportation is one block away.

The Stable Cottage has a fully equipped kitchen, and comfortable living/dining room. The cozy master bedroom has a sloping ceiling (triangular in shape). Surrounded by tall trees, some have described it to feel like they're sleeping in a tree house! There is wifi and a washer and dryer. While relaxing on the private deck it's easy to imagine you are in the country.

My family and I, along with our quiet, friendly dog live in the front house. We are happy to answer any questions you may have and to also honor your privacy. The Stable Cottage is a perfect little respite after a day out exploring the Bay Area!
