Tam, Mt. Baldy, and surrounding ridgeline views; enjoyed from most rooms throughout.  128 Winding Way is also totally private and extremely quiet but just two blocks from Laurel Grove with very easy access to the award-winning K-8th grade Ross School, the Marin Art and Garden Center, Pixie Park, the Ross Common and downtown Ross’ many quaint shops and restaurants.
