Overview

Pescadero Cottage Rental Photos and Description

We work very hard to make The Cottage a magical oasis just for you. After all, this mid-century cottage was built by my grandfather!

When you open the gate you'll discover an AMAZING private backyard. You'll hear a waterfall splashing next to a hot tub that's awaiting you & your favorite beverage. You'll feel the warmth of a fire pit (that uses real wood) to snuggle up & roast a s'more or two or three... Take a midday snooze on the hammock tucked in a small grove of redwoods. Rekindle that child within with a game of Ping-Pong or horseshoes.

Wanna come inside?

The interior is decorated in a fun yet relaxed retro style. The living room has a 'kick back & relax' feel with original wood walls, a wood burning stove, Foosball, lots of games & books to keep you entertained and of course many personalized touches throughout.

The updated kitchen is fully loaded - just bring the food!

Slip into the king size bed in the master bedroom and... RELAX. The bedroom has views of the redwoods & its own private bathroom. The second bedroom has a king size bed & decorated in a lighthearted style with original artwork & views of our garden. A second full bathroom is just down the hall.

The deck overlooks 70 year old apple trees (that were planted by my great grandmother!) & the iconic redwoods. You'll hear chickens crowing in the distance and even an occasional wild turkey! I guarantee if you sit in our rocking chairs with your favorite beverage, you'll notice your worries melt away...

Whether it’s outdoor solitude that you desire or a little good old fashioned fun – you are sure to find it at The Cottage. Give yourself a reboot in our neck of the woods!

Other Amenities Include: gas BBQ, wood for fire pit & wood stove, cable TV, free Wi-Fi Internet, free local & long distance telephone, CD/DVD player, iPod cable to sound system, washing machine & dryer, parking off street and of course the mountain views!

About Amy Blomquist

I grew up in Loma Mar and graduated from Pescadero High with 16 in my class! I'm a graduate of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and worked as an actor for almost 6 years in Los Angeles. But I started to experience withdrawals from not being around the redwoods and had to come back ;-)

I currently work in health care with the elder population and run The Cottage with my parents!

Why Amy Blomquist chose Pescadero

The Cottage was built by my grandfather in 1946. The home was a weekend getaway for my grandparents. My family goes back many generations in the Loma Mar area. Come see why Loma Mar is a very special place...at The Cottage!

What makes this cottage unique

There aren’t too many places left wherein less than an hour’s drive from the city, you are embraced by massive redwood trees, birds, banana slugs, running water and the stars in the night sky. In a time where it’s becoming more and more difficult to keep up with our busy lives, The Cottage offers a much needed retreat to de-stress and rejuvenate your soul - all surrounded by the pace of nature. Our wish is that guests will experience the tranquility and uniqueness The Cottage and Loma Mar has to give.

Wonderful mountain escape

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is lovely and well-appointed with everything you can think of. Amy was responsive to our requests and questions and was always pleasant and helpful. It was a perfect location for a get-together with old friends. We enjoyed the rockers on the deck, the hot tub, cooking in the well-appointed kitchen, grilling fresh fish outside, fires in the fire ring after supper, and fires in the living room fire place on chilly evenings. (We also enjoyed local wines during many of these activities!) Spent one day going to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, another exploring nearby beaches and picking up fresh fish in Half Moon Bay. The last day we took a couple of nearby hikes through the red woods and then returned to the cottage to laze around. I have particularly fond memories of reading a book in the hammock under the redwoods. I highly recommend this vacation property. It's a great get away just an hour from San Jose.

Quaint, well-appointed cottage in the redwoods

  • 5 of 5
Compared to the photos and descriptions, the Cottage is possibly understated! Adorable, neat as a pin, wonderful attention to detail and well-appointed. The term "gracious living" comes to mind. We loved our stay here, and really appreciated how great the kitchen was. Everything we reached for (utensils, waffle maker, griddle, cutlery) was there, and the little notes and descriptions were a highlight. Thanks for the welcome basket; we mowed through several of the treats on our first evening while sitting on the front porch listening to the birds.

We had a wonderful time, and will definitely be back! Thanks Amy, Sharon and Irv!

Owner's Response: Gracious living – I like that! I may use that for our marketing ;-) Good to know the house had everything you needed to make your stay much more enjoyable. I’m always adding new things I think our guests might appreciate. Oh, and I heard you picked up a olallieberry pie from Duarte's - I'm so jealous! Many thanks for staying with us and we can’t wait to have you back again!!

What an incredible place. Totally exceeded expectations. Every touch was personal and welcoming. So much so that I had to keep reminding myself that I didn't actually know the owners. The place was beautiful, well appointed, decorating with charm and taste and very gracious. Generous treats at every turn. We hope to return again and again.

Owner's Response: It’s always gratifying to know when we exceed expectations - especially when you guys came up for an event! I always feel that when people arrive at The cottage, they enter as guests but leave as family. So, in a sense, you do know us now! ;-) Thanks again for staying with us and we hope you return as well!

THE BEST RENTAL EXPERIENCE EVER

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed in a lot of VRBO places all around the US and Caribbean and The Cottage experience was THE BEST! Amy goes above and beyond to accommodate her guests - she literally thinks of everything. The house is immaculate, stocked with everything you could want or need. The decor is cute and the outdoor area is awesome. So much to do - ping pong, horseshoes, bbqing, fire pit, hot tub, hiking, all on or from the property. I am picky, and I was so pleased. We kept noticing new things throughout our weekend stay, the herbs to cook with, the games, and on and on. Thank you Amy!

Owner's Response: So happy you gals had some good quality ‘girl time’ and got to take advantage of all the fun! My mom and I love to add new surprises and I’m sure there will be more the next time you come. Hope you enjoyed Harley Farms and took home some of their amazing cheese! Thanks again for staying with us!

Magical....restful....gorgeous property!

  • 5 of 5
Charming, magical, close to nature...hidden gem in Pescadero! Amy's rental was the perfect place for my family....we visited the goat farm, Half Moon Bay, downtown Pescadero, the beach...stayed in the beautiful redwoods but only 5-10 minutes from the beach - the best of both worlds! Wish we could have stayed more than 2 nights!!!

Not a thing to bring with you, the cottage is FULLY stocked! My family will return again and again :-)
