                  Mendocino is a destination perfect for enjoying the Northern California Coast. The quaint village, reminiscent of a New England town, has many boutique shops, art galleries, and charming restaurants. Hiking at the Mendocino Headlands State Park is adjacent to the village. The Pt. Cabrillo Lighthouse and the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens are two popular attractions less than 15 minutes away.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: I purchased The Larkin Cottage in 2006. I really was not looking to buy a property in Mendocino but I had recently retired and came to the area to visit a friend. I saw this lovely property and knew it would be a wonderful place to share with my family and friends. The Larkin Cottage was an extra bonus!

                  Why the Owner Chose Mendocino:
                  The Larkin Cottage property has so much character. The main house on the property was built in the late 1800's and originally was located closer to the highway. It has been well loved and cared for over the years. The Larkin Cottage was the original chicken coop, converted to housing in the 1940's for the original owner's son to live in after he married. In the 1970's the guest house was added and much later the gazebo and play house. All of the buildings have been remodeled in the last 5 years.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  The Larkin Cottage is so private and yet so close to town. It really is a special place.
