We had booked Seahorse Cottage as our base and launch pad to explore Mendocino and as far north as the attractions in Leggett. But if there's anything we could change about our itinerary, it would be to just make Seahorse Cottage an attraction in its own right. It promises comfort and luxury melded into one perfect cottage that offers superb views of the Albion River Bridge from atop the ridge and awesome sunsets. I love that all the rooms generously let in natural light. Sitting at the dining table and peering out into the lush and lovely garden allows you glimpses of the hummingbirds that stop to feed.
For a quiet, undisturbed retreat into the hills and with magnificent views you could enjoy from dawn to dusk, it'll be tough to fine something that trumps Seahorse Cottage. The cottage was clean, the garden well-tended and the cottage well stocked. Looking forward to our next trip back for some peace and quiet amid the hum drum of city living...and maybe get some journaling done on the patio.
