About Linda Moore, Owner

I purchased The Larkin Cottage in 2006. I really was not looking to buy a property in Mendocino but I had recently retired and came to the area to visit a friend. I saw this lovely property and knew it would be a wonderful place to share with my family and friends. The Larkin Cottage was an extra bonus!

Linda Moore, Owner purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Linda Moore, Owner chose North Coast

The Larkin Cottage property has so much character. The main house on the property was built in the late 1800's and originally was located closer to the highway. It has been well loved and cared for over the years. The Larkin Cottage was the original chicken coop, converted to housing in the 1940's for the original owner's son to live in after he married. In the 1970's the guest house was added and much later the gazebo and play house. All of the buildings have been remodeled in the last 5 years.

What makes this cottage unique

The Larkin Cottage is so private and yet so close to town. It really is a special place.

Cozy Cottage By The Sea

  • 4 of 5

I loved staying at Larkin Cottage, in Mendocino! The proximity to the town was perfect and the charming French County feel was divine! The owner provided many dining ideas with local menus and the kitchen was fully stocked should you decide to cook instead. I will definitely return again!

The Larkin Cottage, Mendocino, CA

  • 5 of 5

The Larkin Cottage is as wonderful as advertised; cozy, very charming, comfortable, immaculately clean & with great amenities for a perfect time in Mendocino. The owner has thought of everything from a welcoming gift basket to brochures on things to see & do in the Mendocino area, to cozy robes! You are close enough to the village of Mendocino yet away enough to be in a quiet location. The gardens at the cottage are beautiful, a lovely front porch to relax on as well as a hot tub! We definitely recommend this wonderful cottage!

Absolutely loved our stay at the Larkin Cottage - best ever!!

  • 5 of 5

We had to go to Mendocino for a wedding. Upon searching, I found The Larkin Cottage, which seemed too good to be true. To my husband's and my delight, it far surpassed all claims and reviews about it. It was one of the top delights of trip. My husband, a cheapy not prone to noticing his surroundings, actually made comments about the comfort of the furnishings and the value of our Lodgings. From the time we opened the door to the time we shut it for the last time, we felt welcomed and and had a place where we could finally relax. The Cottage has everything needed to make anyone's stay a delight, no matter how short or long. My husband and I both are hoping for a return. I can't say enough about the Larkin Cottage.

Just what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

Larkin Cottage was just what we wanted for our seven day ocean getaway. The cottage was private, comfortable, well-maintained, clean, fully equipped and cheerful. The grounds were beautifully landscaped. Linda, the owner, was both gracious and helpful. She even loaned us a heating pad and ice pack for my husband to use on his ailing back. Mendocino has been my "happy" place to visit for a long time and Linda and Larkin Cottage made our stay that much more enjoyable. I would recommend Larkin Cottage to any couple or single person looking for a private getaway close to everything the Mendocino area has to offer.
