About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Forest Haven Cottage is located in Westhaven, approximately two miles south of Trinidad within walking distance of two art galleries and Moonstone Beach. It is the perfect location for enjoying the beauty and recreation of Trinidad's beaches, forests, Patrick's Point State Park, Redwood National Park, Humboldt County and surrounding areas.

Oftentimes out of the fog and wind of other beachside properties, our cottage offers an affordable alternative to enjoy fishing, hiking, and relaxing on the north coast. We are surrounded by a mature redwood forest intermingled with old growth stumps, ferns and a seasonal creek.

Our fully equipped kitchen and home in our secluded, relaxed forest atmosphere will provide you with the escape you and your friends or family are looking for. Whether you want to curl up and read a book in front of the woodstove, or spend an active weekend hiking, biking, fishing, beachcombing, perusing our many unique shops and art galleries and dining in one of Trinidad's fine restaurants, Forest Haven Cottage is the ideal home base.

About Annie Lindquist

Tom and Annie have lived in Westhaven since 1987. Tom runs a small landscape construction business and Annie teaches 2nd grade at Trinidad School.

Annie Lindquist purchased this cabin in 1987

Why Annie Lindquist chose Westhaven-Moonstone

We fell in love with this property in 1987 because of the beautiful redwood forest, the space to raise chickens, plant an orchard and turn the property into our own little slice of paradise!

Private One Bedroom Cottage in the Redwoods with Hot Tub

Cozy and Comfortable (and Chickens!!)

  • 5 of 5

This cozy cottage was just what we needed! We absolutely loved hiking the Prairie Creek Redwoods Park every day. When we arrived, the chickens ran to meet us, hoping for a snack. That beginning was enduring and so fun!! The bed is super comfortable and we enjoyed the beautiful redwoods setting. If your time/budget allows, we highly recommend Larrupin’ Cafe; the service and food is quite wonderful!

Annie is quick to respond to messages and was very helpful. We highly recommend staying here and will certainly keep this place on our list to visit again.

older cabin in need of updating

  • 3 of 5

The cabin is in a nice forested area. It is older and smells rather musty. It does have a nice bedroom and plenty of space. The kitchen was nicely stocked. The hot tub has broken dials and jets, but it does heat up nicely. It just needs updated. The toilet is loose, so you have to be careful. It needs re-bolted to the floor.

After my husband died I needed to get away, although last minute, Annie was able to accommodate me for a few days. I just wanted to be alone. I was able to book property easily and when I explained my reasons for coming to Trinidad, Annie was most understanding. The cabin so peaceful and private being just what I needed. The pictures do not do it justice, very well furnished with all one would need. Nice little patio in the back with a couple of chairs allowing me to sit and reflect. Chickens would greet me in the morning and I would have coffee on the patio. If you need solitude and peace this is the place......the bed sooo comfortable. Recommend it highly. Annie, if you are reading this again my apologies for locking myself out, thank you for being there for me. Certainly helped with my grieving process. Again, thank you for being so accommodating on such short notice, allowing my privacy that I needed so much. A big hug from me to you, bless you for being there in my time of need.

Comfortable cabin, wooded area, private

  • 4 of 5

Great cabin for 2-3, comfortable bed, wood stove, private hot tub on deck... bathroom on the smaller side, but worked fine for me and my dog. I had my privacy and everything I needed for a comfy stay. Plenty of wood, essentials in the kitchen, would stay again.

Location is slightly confusing as there are two "Haven" rentals, so keep in mind which one you're in :) This rental is closer to the road whereas the other loft one is set back behind the main house.

Host we're gracious allowing early check in and made sure I had kindling and (regular) maintenanced the hot tub. Good choice for Trinidad for me.

Private, quaint and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location to stay, close to Patrick's Point, Trinidad, the coastal lagoons and then close to arcata. The bed was as comfortable as ours at home. The hot tub was a perfect 102 and exceptional star viewing!! Water pressure in bath was great. Linens were nice. Outside shed to store our bikes and camping gear. Chickens in the morning were delightful. We highly recommend this rental and will stay again.
