Overview

About the property

Adjacent to State Forest, Minutes to Mendocino and Ocean

This 700 square foot cottage is located on 5 secluded acres and was designed and built entirely by the owners. The cottage includes many special touches such as open beamed ceilings milled with local redwood. The cottage has tons of natural light. A wood pellet stove provides cozy heat and ambiance with the push of a button. There are also electric heaters in the bedroom and bathroom for additional warmth.

The cabin includes a private outdoor shower equipped with hot water, a private deck, an indoor claw foot bathtub and a compact yet full kitchen. The bedroom is outfitted with a brand new Leesa bed. There is also a twin bed which is perfect for kids. An additional futon with bedding is available to sleep a fourth person.

We are very kid friendly. Let us know and we will get out our trikes and cars for your child. We also have a very friendly dog but she stays on our side of the property most of the time.

We are also happy to provide recommendations for dining, beaches, trails or whatever else you are interested in seeing.

Jackson State Forest is our next door neighbor. There is a trail that leads from the property into the forest and we will leave you a map. Located ten minutes north of Mendocino and ten minutes south of Fort Bragg and five minutes from what we think is the best beach in the area.

We welcome smallish pets for an additional flat fee.

Hidden Secret

  • 4 of 5

My husband & I stayed here for a nice 3 day weekend. The cost is great, comparable to hotel stay only you get a secluded quiet getaway. We loved the cottage. We could bring along our furry baby too! The owner, Melinda, greeted us when we arrived and then we had the place to ourselves. Just note there is no TV unless you watch DVDs. Be prepared with a great book to curl up with or bring along a DVD to watch. The location is perfect between Mendo & Fort Bragg . The only knock was that our internet was spotty at the cottage but you could get it when you got back out to Highway 1. I would highly recommend this place!!

Second stay and already planning a third

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this great little cottage. It still has all the same charm and beauty as the first visit. It has everything a guest needs and is very clean. Plenty of towels, bath supplies (soap, shampoo) and kitchen supplies (small coffee maker, dishes, small fridge, small stove).

Favorite Things About The Cottage: privacy, outdoor showers, claw foot tub, quiet, quiet, quiet, beautiful setting in the trees, visits from Molly (totally mellow dog who we bring bones for just so she'll stop by for a visit)

Can't wait to start planning our next visit.

Wonderful stay for the family!

A wonderful cabin surrounded by woods. It was a perfect place for our family to enjoy a weekend exploring the Mendocino coast and woods.

Always a pleasure

  • 5 of 5

I have lost count of how many times we've stayed here. Either 4 or 5 over the course of 5 years. The cottage is comfortable and the hosts welcoming. Our 2 children look forward to our trip each year, and my wife and I leave each time fantasizing about buying an acre in Mendocino and building a house. If you want quiet, nature and relaxation, this is your spot

Loved it and will be back

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed with the cleanliness and simple, functional design of the cabin, and even more impressed with the story. Both of us thought about bugging the owners about the crazy story of building the simple cabin, moving there with infant children before plumbing was installed, and actually sticking around. The surrounding area is beautiful, the cabin far enough away from the main house to provide proper privacy, and the details, like anonymous paw prints in the bathroom tiles, exquisite.

Directly adjacent to Jackson State Forest with world class hiking and mountain bike trails that start on the property. Minutes to pristine beaches and both the village of Mendocino and the town Fort Bragg. The rocky coastline is perfect for abalone diving, kayaking through local sea caves, tide pooling, or just watching the sunset.
