Retreat from the city in this garden cottage.. In Short This lovely oasis was built in 1907 on peaceful Russian Hill. Featuring just one accommodation that is reached by way of a beautiful garden, it promises a private, restful stay. The interior features lively artwork and bright colors. There's a sitting area, and furnishings include country-style antiques and a queen-size bed. Keep in mind that parking can be a bit tiresome; fortunately, the cable car is only half a block down the street.
