Fox Kit Cottage offers a dramatic ocean experience in sumptuous comfort. There is nothing like it in Bodega Bay. Well-appointed, it has two bedrooms, one with a queen-sized bed, the other with two twin beds, and one bathroom. It is perfect for a romantic getaway or a vacation for a small family.
With its remodel in 2011, the cottage became an upscale retreat for its owners and guests. Sitting above Wright’s Beach, views dominate from nearly every room, and intense ocean scenes are customary. From the beautifully designed deck and spa you will relax, unwind and feel what the power of the sea can do to your soul.
The ocean is not the only attraction. There is wildlife everywhere. Birds, whales, and fox (the cottage’s namesake), are just a sampling of what is seen through cottage windows. From two short paths – Monterey Pine Path, and Bluff Path, you will enjoy coastal landscape and incredible views. The spacious lot hosts a majestic, intricately intertwined, 40-year old Monterey Pine tree, with a path under its canopy and a stone bench to sit and admire natural arbor artistry. The Bluff Path takes you down to a bench that sits amongst abundant fresh water springs, native foliage, with the vast ocean below.
Furnishings reflect a commitment to clean contemporary design, local art, and attention to detail. Amenities include quality bedding, thick bath towels and robes, and natural toiletries, setting this home apart from others. Those who like to cook will appreciate the 5-burner gas stove and fully stocked kitchen.
There are activities nearby for everyone: Horseback riding on the beach, surfing at Salmon Creek Beach, pampering at the Osmosis Spa, hiking among ancient redwoods at Armstrong Grove, golfing at Bodega Harbour, abalone diving, kayaking and swimming on the Russian River, zip-lining at Occidental …. The list goes on and on and we are happy to provide suggestions!

Great place to spend your anniversary
We absolutely loved the cottage. It was so homey and comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with pots, pans, utensils everything! Sitting on the deck in the mornings having coffee was magical as the ocean was so close to look at. My husband and I both slept like rocks on the queen size bed that they have there. I don't know what kind of bed it is, but it sure was comfy. It was a perfect getaway for us. We probably will book again next summer. We give it 5 stars
Perfect mother's day getaway
I stayed at Fox Kit Cottage for 2 nights with my mother and daughter, and it did not disappoint. The view was even better than it looks in the pictures. Huge waves crash into Hogback. We particularly loved the view from the dining room table, where we completed several puzzles, and of course from the hot tub. We also really enjoyed the large tree on the property, with its long twisting branches, and all the gorgeous flowers. A short walk gets you to Duncan's Landing, where you can choose to go south to a small beach with tide pools or north where you can walk for about 1.5 miles on Wright’s beach. The cottage was in excellent condition and had everything we needed. We checked in and stayed put, aside from walks to the beaches. It was quiet except for the sound of the waves, very relaxing. The beds were cozy and the bunk bed and TV nook with many big pillows were a hit with my daughter. Thank you for opening your home to us! We had a wonderful time and hope to come back.
What a gorgeous beach front home. You are literally right on the beach. It has been recently updated and we loved it. The hot tub is a great extra for those sunset evenings. There is something magical falling asleep and waking up to the ocean. We will be back. Thank you again
My family and I had a wonderful stay. The home is newly renovated and nicely done. The view was absolutely perfect! As others have mentioned, the kitchen is minimally equipped. We didn’t have large pans for baking or simple seasonings such as pepper. The ceilings are also very low in the bathroom and tv area, which can be problematic. Just a heads up for taller travelers!
Cozy Beach Cabin Close to SF
Our family of four came here for a winter long weekend get-a-way from San Francisco. Though it was a very windy weekend, the cabin is warm and cozy with beautiful views. The beds and couches are very comfortable. The kitchen is spacious and clean (though we had to use pans to cook our pizza- no oven trays). The cabin came with lots of DVDs and a nice TV space. Also, the front of the house is sheltered from the north&west and far enough off Highway 1, so I could sit out there and read in the sun, even though the ocean side was too windy. On our last day, the wind stopped and we got to enjoy the hot tub. It was a perfect end to a great trip!
Loved Our Stay!
We had a lovely stay at the Fox Kit Cottage last week. What a special place! The owners have done an absolutely beautiful job with the decor and making it feel cozy and inviting. All of the little details like the fox shaped door knocker and robe hanging hooks made it feel very unique and fun. It was such an uplifting and healing environment. We feel blessed to have gotten to experience staying there and hope to return someday. It certainly turned our stressful medical trip to the bay area into a refreshing respite. It really lifted my spirits. I can't physically hike, kayak etc. anymore because of my chronic pain/illness but I didn't even hardly miss doing those things...getting to stare out at the amazing ocean views from the hot tub, listening to the waves, and smelling the fresh air was wonderful in and of itself! We even got to see a pod of Grey Whales pass by. So awesome! Anyway, I just wanted to provide some positive feedback for you, the owners, and the cleaning staff. Kudos! Please pass our gratitude along to the owners for graciously sharing their little piece of heaven with us.
