About Annie Lindquist

Annie Lindquist purchased this cottage in 1987

Why Annie Lindquist chose Westhaven-Moonstone

We both moved to the Humboldt area to go to HSU. Upon engagement we knew we wanted to purchase a property with acreage for gardening, raising kids and chickens! We fell in love with our Westhaven property because of the beautiful redwoods, rural feel and community!

Will definitely book again

  • 5 of 5

This little slice of heaven is tucked away in the redwoods, walking distance to Moonstone Beach and others. The location is incredible, the interior is thoughtfully done (the host has thought of everything), and the town of Trinidad is a treasure. We couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more.

Peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was peaceful and secluded. Everything we needed was there. Loved the hot tub and fire. The only bad part was having to leave. Will definitely come back if ever in the area again.

A quirky, clean, private, well-appointed place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in Redwood Haven Cottage! It was very clean, the bed was super comfy, the towels were soft and fluffy, and the patio/hot tub were definite highlights! It is VERY private--be prepared to go down a very narrow and, at times, steep driveway. (The photo of the driveway has a bit of an optical illusion; there's actually a fairly steep dip in the middle. We were in a Toyota sedan and didn't have any trouble, but it does look daunting. Lower cars might have an issue.) The kitchen was great, and we were even greeted with fresh eggs! (The only thing I would suggest is replacing the cutting boards. Oh, and maybe getting a measuring cup and spoons. Honestly, though, they have just about everything else, so we probably just couldn't find them.) The bathroom was very clean! While we were there, the toilet tank wouldn't fill properly, but we contacted the host and he fixed it, no problem. There was plenty of hot water, but do be prepared for a wet floor--the shower is a walk-in one, so water tends to splatter, regardless of the curtain. Not a big deal, at all, just don't walk into the bathroom with socks on right after your shower. :) As other people have mentioned, the stairs to the loft are narrow and steep. There are also 1-2 steps throughout the main level: a step to go in the kitchen, a step down into the living room, 2 steps into the bathroom. For able-bodied folk like ourselves this wasn't an issue at all.(Except when trying to use the restroom in the middle of the night in the dark--that was a bit exciting!) We spent a lot of time out on the patio. I even took a nap out there because it was so relaxing. And I never nap!

I would absolutely stay there again, and hope to do so in the future!

Perfect little getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little cottage and hope to return next year. It was a perfect size for our 2 small kids and our dog. We could not get the internet to work at all but that was OK. Totally gorgeous and the hot tub was key!!

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin in the woods was exactly what we were looking for! We are from the East Coast so to stay in a cabin with Redwood trees right outside our door was amazing. And sitting in a hot tub under those trees - just can't describe how relaxing. We did take another guest's advise and sleep on the Futon in the living room. At our age and being tall, the steep stairs with low headroom near the bottom would definitely have been an issue in using the downstairs restroom in the middle of the night. The Futon was very comfortable and a good quality of sleep and rest. If you are looking for a place to be alone and have privacy this is it. We were glad we had rented a jeep because the driveway is as rustic as the location. The cabin was stocked with all the items we needed for kitchen and linens. Location was exactly what we needed. The ocean is very close by, but we preferred going to Trinidad for both dinner and sunset. The water temp in July was 51 degrees but the sunset was beautiful. The Avenue of the Giant Redwoods was about 30 minutes south and the National Redwood Forest about 30 minutes north. We would absolutely stay here again and would recommend this to any of our friends who plan to come to the west coast to see the Redwoods. As a side note, if you are flying in, we flew in to Sacramento and took the 5 hour drive through route 299 which was beautiful.

Perfect little get away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely loved our stay here! The house is surrounded by beautiful forest and feels nicely secluded. The patio is excellent. Hot tub, gas grill, lounge and dining outdoor furniture - just perfect! The cottage is really comfortable, with a fireplace, full kitchen and comfy bed. Annie was really accommodating. We would definitely stay here again!!
