About Kim Brandstater
My husband, Justin , and I have lived here for 22 years in our historical victorian home. We also own the property directly in back. We love to meet people. My husband and I are both artists and enjoy beauty. Justin is a photographer as well. We love to travel but are quite happy on our property :) We have designed everything to feel like we are on vacation in the south of France :) I think you'll feel that way too. Lavender Cottage is an extension of who we are and has great attention to detail. We welcome you!
Kim Brandstater purchased this House in 1997
Why Kim Brandstater chose Sierra Madre
Lavender Cottage is newly renovated and is on a quiet and beautiful residential street just a short walk away for town and even closer to Mt Wilson hiking trails. Our town has it all yet we are a few miles away from Pasadena, Arcadia and Monrovia. Downtown is just a 20 min freeway drive away also.
What makes this House unique
Peaceful and beautiful setting. Mountain views. Bright and airy cottage feel.
100% refund if cancelled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Quiet, clean and cozy with the comforts of home, and at a fraction of the price and hassle of a hotel, I highly recommend.
Great guests! Clean and respectful. Would love to have again!
perfect quiet family retreat
The home was clean and comfortable, beautifully decorated and wonderfully manicured yard. Great shops and restaurants within walking distance. Responsive owner who lives nearby. Thanks so much, we'll be back!
Wonderful guests and great communication. Left the place in great condition. Would love to have you all back again! Thanks
Cute Clean Cottage!
This cute house was perfect for my family of five! It was clean, bright, cutely decorated with very comfortable beds. The two bedrooms plus pull out sleeper couch worked well for us. The kitchen had all the amenities we needed. We especially enjoyed the Keurig coffee maker with selection of coffees as well as the snacks, scone mix, and sparkling water provided for us by the owners. The outdoor garden space was fabulous, too. The owners were very easy to work with and it was nice that they checked in with us upon arrival. This house is situated on a quiet neighborhood street in a great town. The location worked well for us needing to get to Pasadena and the surrounding areas to visit family. Highly recommended! Would book again if we return to this area.
Thank you for the wonderful review. I’m so glad your family had a nice and comfortable stay. Thank you so much for taking good care of the house- you’re all welcome back any time!!
Attention to the details of convenience
What a comfy/cozy rental gem! There was even a court yard tree which provided a juicy lemon for our tea. Would not hesitate to book here again for our return trip!
Thank you so much! Please come back again. I think you left the place cleaner that when you came! Thank you for respecting our cottage. You were wonderful guests. Take care
Lavender Cottage: a perfect home away from home.
The Lavender Cottage perfectly fit our needs as we were visiting family in the Sierra Madre/ Pasadena area. We loved the quiet neighborhood and being within walking distance to both the quaint downtown of Sierra Madre and the trail to Mt. Wilson. The cottage is very comfortable and well appointed. We enjoyed the wonderful sunny LA weather in the backyard as we watched the hummingbird flying from flower to flower. Kim Brandstater was very attentive and responsive to our inquiries. It was a perfect home away from home
Thank you for such a wonderful review! We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. Hope to have you all back again someday!!
