the-eco-nest is an eco-dweller's delight nestled in a forest of redwood & madrones yet only 45 minutes from SF, CA.
We border acres of open space for hiking & biking in West Marin's San Geronimo Valley, between Pt. Reyes Station & Fairfax, CA..
The NEST is chemical-free, free of mold, & does not use microwavse, smartMeter or WiFi. We provide a cable internet connection.
There is a landline phone for your use should you need to be on a lengthy call, as we don't use Wireless at the NEST.
MCS & EMF STATUS
Although the ecoNEST has
been checked for environmental, chemical, & EMF/RF toxins by Healthy Building Science, the NESTmay not be safe for all people with MCS.
We ask guests to refrain from bringing or wearing clothing or body care products with fragrance, but some still do.
The exterior of our home is Cedar siding, and we use propane for heat. Some MCS people react to Cedar and/or propane.
We live in a rural area where some neighbors use strong wifi &/or smartMeters,
so if you are very sensitive to EMR/RF, we might not be the best place for you.
Yes, WE AREPET FRIENDLY
We also allow non-shedding hypo-allergenic dog breeds & some other pets!
Please call for more info on hosting pets. There is an additional pet fee and deposit.
WE DO NOT HAVE KITCHEN FACILITIES IN THE NEST
Guests may use the guest refrigerator & breakfast nook in another building. There is a stainless steel kettle in the NEST.
Yummy breakfast places serving fabulous organic coffee & good food are within a 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk.
You will get a guide book of our favorite places once you reserve the NEST.
