The Vibe: Architectural awards abound at our favorite mountain-glam getaway. We wouldn’t argue with awarding “Camp Teepee” as many prizes as its rooms have views — which is to say, nearly as many as the 78,000 times the home has been saved to “Idea Books” on Houzz.com. Lodge-like and luxe, you won’t want to miss out on our latest mountain-mansion-mania.
The Details: The charming chalet encapsulates a cutting-edge combo: it’s at once nestled-into-nature, and old-world opulent. The interior and exterior exude a flawlessly fluid feel, both boasting floor-to-ceiling glass, custom stonework, and classic wooden beams. Old-growth trees found only in NorCal’s nature scene add to the splendor of the grounds, visible from every vantage point, from the online-iconic “Reading Nook” to the sprawling lawn outside.
The Scoop: Pied-à-where? You won’t believe how much convenience meets seclusion until you arrive here. Just 30 minutes over the iconic Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco, you’ll find Camp Teepee atop a private driveway at the base of Mt. Tamalpais. Logistics are as breezy as the mountain air that you’ll enjoy. Unparalleled privacy and space — and you’re still just minutes from the cozy-chic town of Mill Valley.
