About the Property

2BR ocean-view cottage, Trinidad, California USA

This secluded bluff-top house at the end of a private road has ocean views up and down the coast and is inundated by sounds of the surf. The cottage is perfect for a quiet retreat or a family vacation. Look for whales from the 40-foot living room, check out the surfers, or watch nesting seabirds on the rocks below. Walk to pristine beaches. Lagoons, rivers, and forest parks are just a short drive away. Fish or sea kayak out of Trinidad harbor.

The sheltered side yard has a campfire pit and a portable barbecue. Bedrooms feature good quality mattresses, down and non-allergenic duvets, all-cotton linens, opening windows. The cottage has hardwood floors, a gas fireplace, digital cable w/DVR, Wi-Fi, XBox, DVD/VCR/stereo system, and a fully equipped kitchen w/ Bosch gas range and dishwasher / Multi-Pure water system. Bathroom has clawfoot tub/shower. Proximity to ACV airport.

PLEASE NOTE: RATES displayed are for 2 GUESTS; RATES for MORE THAN 2 GUESTS increase accordingly and are displayed in seasonal rate NOTES and included in quotes.

NOT available for large parties or receptions. Some simple gatherings OK with owner agreement on file.

The cottage is close to the airport, restaurants, Humboldt Bay, a wildlife sanctuary and charter boats. Nearby historic towns feature music, movies, art galleries, concerts, and more restaurants.

Thanks to guests Jim Thompson (May, 2010), Wendy Moran (2007 - 2010) for photos taken during their stays at Bluff House.

Guest email during Bluff stay:: The house is wonderful. I wonder if I might extend my stay for two more nights if it is available. I would love to meet you as well. This house is truly a haven for me and I am so appreciative for the time here. -- Wendy M., New York

Car: Recommended

The best thing about the Trinidad area is the many uncrowded beaches and hikes through the redwoods and Fern Canyon. Add friendly locals, fishing out of Trinidad harbor, and easy-access kayak rental at two local lagoons. Find local fresh seafood, plenty of organic groceries, and several farmers markets. A lively arts and music scene surrounds the university in nearby Arcata with central town plaza. World-renowned marsh and wetlands, Humboldt Bay and Eureka old-town and historic Ferndale are also nearby. Good restaurants make for a special night out. Seasonal festivals, such as the Mad River Festival in nearby Blue Lake feature theater talent from around the world; Oyster Festival in Arcata celebrates local aquaculture and food; Wild Blackberry Festival in Westhaven and Trinidad Fish Festival are small, local community events.

 

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Westhaven-Moonstone, CA, USA:
I fell in love when I walked through the gate -- plain and simple, it felt like home. There's an intimate view of the rocks below and the house is perfectly aligned with them. But yet you see the whole sweep of the ocean. The curve of the bay to the north and Trinidad Head is close but when you look to the south, you see the long stretch of Clam Beach and all the way to Cape Mendocino on a clear day. It's a nice place to plant flowers, but the natural landscaping and the ocean provide enough beauty so I can keep yard work to a minimum.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
There's simply no better view on the coast. The combination of being at the end of the lane (so nobody walking by), the protected side yard, and the wide open access to the Pacific is just the perfect combination. I can sit inside the house with a book and feel like I'm at the beach but nobody will bother me. It's a simple cottage in a stunning location, which is just right for me.
