THE PERFECT BEACH COTTAGE IN SALMON CREEK ~ OCEAN VIEWS TO 'AHH' OVER

Bodega Bay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 4 in beachy bliss ~ well behaved pets welcome!

The romance of a classic knotty pine beach cottage with white water ocean and beach views far up the Sonoma Coast is available at The Beach Cottage. This very warm, cozy and somewhat quirky cottage is decorated in authentic vintage 'beach'; colorful, joyful and fun. Bask in the views of sand, surf and Salmon Creek where it meets the sea. Watch the sun set on the ocean from your front row seat by the (gas) fireplace. Get lost in the ocean’s symphony as it crashes to shore. You can take a 5 minute stroll to the beach through our tiny hamlet on narrow streets filled with wonderful old beach houses. Take a few moments as you walk by Salmon Creek to feed the geese. The kitchen has everything necessary to create dinners of fresh seafood from the marina. Or go out to eat...there are several wonderful local restaurants. Interested in the 'art scene'? Let us know and we can provide a private artists studio tour within the village. To do or not to do...that's the question at The Beach Cottage!!

Important Note:: Please be aware that dogs are not allowed on Salmon Creek beach in order to protect the Snowy Plover, an endangered local bird. However, dogs on leash ARE allowed on the following beaches, Doran (a safe, fun place for both children and pets), Bodega Dunes, just south of Salmon Creek, Wrights Beach and Portuguese Beach, both just a very short drive north of Salmon Creek. Also, doggies ARE allowed off leash in the dunes right here around the village where they can run and run and chase all those things real and imaginary that dogs like to chase.

The Local Art Scene: There are several artists living and working in Salmon Creek village. If you would be interested in a studio tour let us know and we will set one up for you. Other local art/galleries in the Bodega Bay area include: West County Gallery (Valley Ford), Ren Brown (Bodega Bay), Local Color (Bodega Bay), Hand Goods (Occidental) and for the best bread you've ever had stop in at Wild Flour in Freestone, about 15 minutes inland through the delightful town of Bodega (where Alfred Hitchcock filmed 'The Birds').

Local Restaurants: For clam chowder you can't beat Spud Point Crab Co. on Eastshore Rd by the marina. Our best local restaurant for intimate dining, excellent food and delightful owners is Terrapin Creek Cafe, located just after the turn onto Eastshore Rd. Bluewater Bistro at the clubhouse in Bodega Harbour has great views and Thursday night jazz. The Duck Club (Bodega Bay Lodge & Spa) on the way out to Doran Beach has fabulous views and high end dining. On Friday nights the local wine shop, Gourmet au Bay, has happy hour so come enjoy some wine or beer while you sit on the back deck and enjoy the best harbor view and picture perfect sunsets.

We are an artist and a general contractor who have been living and working in the Bodega Bay area for over 17 years.

Diana Bundy purchased this cottage in 2004

We chose this property mostly because it's across the street from our permanent residence which makes it perfect for our families to visit with all the grand children. We've lovingly upgraded the home but have been careful to maintain its unique beachy-ness and vintage, warm feel.

We LOVED our stay at the beach cottage and will definitely be back. It was reasonably priced with amazing ocean views and my furry four legged "kid" was welcome there. It was a perfect relaxing getaway.

Vintage beach cottage makes for perfect coastal getaway

Just rented the Beach Cottage for a long weekend with some family who were in town visiting. The cottage provided the perfect cozy spot to relax and catch up during a rainy weekend. The cottage is a very comfortable size for 4 adults and is very well-appointed with everything one could need; from making dinner in the very cute kitchen, to picnicking at the beach (within an easy walk). The decor and ambiance contribute to the cottage's vintage beachy feel and it has been upgraded and modernized in a manner that maintains all the desirable vintage qualities while being very clean, warm and comfortable. There are even ocean views from the living room and quaint backyard. The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful and the location is very convenient to all the Sonoma Coast has to offer. We are looking forward to our next visit!

This Really is the Perfect Beach Cottage

My two friends and I stayed here this past weekend and we absolutely loved it. We were up in Bodega Bay to do some crabbing and this was the perfect location for a home base to hit up all of the spots around the area.

It got pretty cold at night in the area. Lucky for us this cottage was extremely warm and comfortable. After a long day of fishing and crabbing, this is a great place to come back to and relax.

My husband and I needed a few days - somewhere, anywhere - and the week prior, found two nights in an old favorite, Bodega Bay. The transaction went smoothly, and we arrived on a Sunday afternoon to gorgeous weather - a welcome relief from our 100 degree plus hometown. The cottage was delightful, from it's cheerful colors and joyful art, to its comfy couch and chairs. It's just the sort of place I'd like to own someday: old, with character and very well maintained, small but not too small, cozy, comfortable and efficient. The owners were friendly and accommodating and even brought us some freshly cooked, home-grown artichokes from their garden one evening. What a treat! My goal was to explore a little, relax a lot, and I read two books in the lovely quiet time we were there. My husband got to fish a few hours, and we used Diana's recommendation list in the kitchen to locate the best bread over in Occidental and the best clam chowder from a little place in the harbor. So good, we brought some home with us. The views are lovely, and we enjoyed both sun and fog, and fantastic sunsets from the back deck. I especially enjoyed the music collection and played fabulous jazz and old standards throughout our visit. Nice! Exploring the villages up the coast is so enjoyable, each beach as beautiful as the last. Overall a perfect experience for us, and we liked it so much we extended our stay. We will definitely return! Thank you, Diana and Mike!

Strolling to the beach is a delightful walk thru an unspoiled, vintage beach hamlet without a highway between you and the ocean. You can beach comb for miles along the coast. The Beach Cottage is quiet and peaceful where you can hear the ocean and shore birds calling. Sit on the new rear deck and watch exquisite sunsets or sit on the front deck and watch the sunrise over the hills to the east. Ahhh, life at the beach....
