About Cherie McKinney

My husband's family owns the McKinney Cabin. The entire family would gather here when our children were growing up.

Cherie McKinney purchased this cabin in 1961

Why Cherie McKinney chose Bodega Bay

Dr. Mckinney and Barbara McKinney had several friends in Davis, CA that had vacation homes in Salmon Creek. They started coming to Bodega Bay in the 50's to enjoy the beach, gather clams, enjoy the crabs and visit with friends.

What makes this cabin unique

Our family loves just enjoying the views out to the ocean, we can sit for hours just looking out the windows. We shop for fresh salmon, live crabs and oysters and often have a barbecue on the deck. We drive to Bodega Head to hike the cliffs and see the surf or just stroll down to Salmon Creek to take in the ocean and birdwatch. Our favorite drive is to over to Occidental to the farmer's market and back over to the coast on Coleman Valley road. The views are breathtaking.

The best view of the ocean as soon as you walk into the home ...

  • 5 of 5

This house has the best views of the ocean and close enough to hear the ocean waves ... so very nice. The house was the perfect size for my husband and I ... although I do feel we would have been just as comfortable if we had a total of 4 people in this cottage.

The walk to the beach from the house took us only 3 minutes... so close !!!

Paper products... dish soap were all plentiful for our stay (3 nights) .. We didn't have to go out to the store to buy anything for the cabin... which is very thoughtful. That's the last thing I want to do while on a little holiday.

The big windows in the living room were sparkling clean!! ... (how did you do that? ... no streaks...) I would love my windows to be that clean at my house.

Thank you very much !!!

Home away from home but by the ocean

  • 5 of 5

This is our home away from home! Perfect location just a quick 5 minute walk to the beach and a quick 5 minute ride to the town. The views are amazing! There are some days we don’t even have to leave the place because you are looking at the ocean all day ( which is perfect for the rainy days) We always have everything we need in the kitchen which is nice and the place is very warm and cozy!! My family and I love this place!! Thanks for sharing it!!

Cozy with great views!

Had an awesome time!

The cottage is walking distance to the beach with great views. There is absolutely nothing negative that I can say. Highly recommended to families or friends [like us].

Thank you, Cherie

Loved It!!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a lovely few days staying at the McKinney Cabin. The home is perfect with everything one would need. It is perched atop a hill with gorgeous ocean and creek views. The beach is just a few minutes walk away (which I enjoyed each morning). And it is a short drive into town for shops and restaurants. So relaxing and refreshing - I hated to leave! We definitely hope to return soon.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 (with kids-11,13) stayed at this lovely cabin in late July. The location was PERFECT for so many activities. The public beach was an easy and enjoyable 5 minute walk, the waves are high and cold but the area where the creek feeds into the ocean is perfect for wading. Even my teen loved "snorkeling" for guppies. This is a great location for easy day trips like the Russian River and the wine country. The house was immaculate with comfortable furniture, a well stocked kitchen, quality linens, good toiletries and a beautiful view. Cherie was easy to work with.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I stayed in the cabin for six nights on our annual "girls' trip" this summer. We were immediately wowed by the views from the cabin and the extensive decks all around the property. Although we did adventure out each day (Schoolhouse Beach was a favorite), most of our hours were spent at the cabin cooking, chatting, reading, and watching the water. We got wonderful fish-n-chips from The Fishetarian as well as a lovely fillet of salmon to cook later - highly recommended. Grilling on a deck at the ocean is pretty much a dream come true! At night, the beds were cozy and the cabin was quiet and dark. We loved everything about our experience, and we will be back!
