Sweet cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this cottage. It was very welcoming and well stocked. We loved the wood burning stove. (Wood was provided). The furniture was lovely and so comfortable. We were fairly close to the Anderson Valley wineries, which we enjoyed visiting.

We plan to go back to this little sweet cottage in the future.

Absolutely perfect space!

  • 5 of 5

I so enjoyed my time at Ron and Deborah's cottage. The unit is beautiful with gorgeous woodworking inside and out and fantastic lighting in all of the rooms. There was plenty of heat, and also a lovely wood-burning stove! The cottage is surrounded by redwoods and it feels like you are in the heart of a lovely forest, but with easy access to the ocean (about 4 miles away). It's a very easy commute into Mendocino--just 4 miles down a single road and you're in the middle of town! I had the pleasure to meet Ron and chat a bit, but their house is distinctly separate from the unit and you really don't feel as if they are there, although they let you know if you need something, they are easily accessible. I had some concerns initially because they allow pets and I have allergies, but they assured me it is thoroughly cleaned between guests, and it was absolutely spotless. It has a full kitchen, which I really didn't use, but a fabulous gas burning stovetop which was a treat from my own electric range for making tea! Cannot recommend it highly enough. I'll be back soon!!

Beautiful and serene getaway!

The stay was perfect and I loved this house so much! It was perfect, cozy and serene. So relaxing to be in the woods and so close to town and all the beauty of the area. Had everything we needed, and couldn't have been happier!

Delightfully cozy serenity in the redwoods--A perfect rental

  • 5 of 5

The property and the owners have made this a perfect rental: Serenity and privacy in the redwoods better than pictures depict, cozy decor, thoughtfully appointed and organized, immaculate and very conveniently located to the town of Mendocino. The owners are very responsive and were a pleasure. I highly recommend this rental.

This is a perfect getaway spot for a couple or individual looking to head up to the Mendocino coast. Just minutes into the town of Mendocino by car, the cottage is a fantastic jumping off point for day trips up and down the coast.

Everything was exactly as shown and we loved the cozy in the forest feel of the place. Sometimes the redwoods can feel dark, but this place has so many skylights and forest facing windows, it was absolutely lovely! The wood stove was a treat and kept us toasty all weekend, we will definitely be back!
