MAGICAL COTTAGE NESTLED AMONG THE REDWOODS WITH A UNIQUE WATERFALL

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!

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!

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

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.

Weekend at the Cottage in Loma Mar

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 28, 2013

We stayed at the Cottage for a fantastic three day weekend with our adult son and his guest. The Cottage is charming and meticulously cared for, and the gardens are cozy and welcoming. The Cottage owners anticipated every need by providing directions, entry instructions, grocery and restaurant locations, and links to area activities; they also left a delightful welcome basket, We spent our days hiking in area parks and beaches, and at the Cottage, we enjoyed the hot tub, horse shoes, ping pong, indoor games, and more. The Cottage is roomy, comfortable, and well equipped, and the owners could not be more hospitable. We did not have enough time to take advantage of all that the Cottage and area have to offer, and I would love to have the opportunity to return.

The best part of our vacation

Our family took a vacation in the San Francisco area in July. After exploring the big city and the area north, we spent the final 4 days here in this beautiful cottage. We made the right decision to end our vacation here and just RELAX. We have rented many vacation homes over the years and this has to be the nicest we have ever stayed in. Our hosts made it very welcoming for us, even including a gift basket with wine, cheese, crackers, pistachios, and marshmallows for roasting over the fire pit. The kitchen is fully equipped to include coffee and even a stocked espresso machine. There are many thoughtful and interesting things to notice in the cottage from labels on containers to the artwork consisting of locals photographs of chickens, pets, flowers, and even a banana slug. The landscaping around the house is a treasure -- many different types of plants and flowers. My son and I had fun playing ping pong on the back patio. Wood is provided to build a fire in the fire pit and my wife read there in the evenings while my son and I relaxed in the hot tub. We loved the lack of humidity and being able to sit outside with no mosquitoes! I am an early riser and sat on the front deck in the mornings and listened to roosters crowing in the distance and watched a deer grazing in the grass next to the driveway. The cottage is in a heavily-wooded, hilly, rural area. While there are neighbors nearby and people driving by on the road, the cottage has plenty of privacy with a fence and trees. We always felt secure and private. The cottage is about 20 minutes from Pescadero which has a gift shop, small grocery store, and Duarte's Tavern which is a good place to have a nice dinner. A little bit farther and you are on Highway 1 at Pescadero Beach so it's easy to get on the highway to explore Half Moon Bay or Monterey on a day trip. When we arrived at the cottage, all three of us were burned out. When we reluctantly left to go home, were recharged. I hope we can come back one day -- we would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Wow, what an incredible review! You’ve captured what so many guests love most about the Cottage - just sitting and taking in the sounds, smells, and sights. Our lives get way too busy and being in nature forces you to distress AND rejuvenates you at the same time! What a brilliant design! Happy you left the Cottage feeling recharged…sounds like we did our job ;-) We hope you can come back one day too! Thanks for staying with us.

Attention to detail!!

The cottage exceeded our expectations in every way possible. It was extremely clean and organized. Some examples... Every appliance was so well taken care of it gave us the impression we were the first family to use Them. There were a lot of little extra things for us to use like the welcome basket, fresh coffee, shampoo and body wash, and so much more. We felt at home in this beautiful cottage.

All the extras like the hot tub, ping pong table, football table, and all the board games made our time at the cabin very enjoyable. We are definitely going back.

Owner's Response: Yes, I do go over everything in the Cottage with a fine ‘tooth comb’ to make sure it’s as perfect as it can be-after all that’s what I would want! Glad you appreciated all the work we put into making it as special as we can. We are also sooooo happy you felt right at home, especially in the middle of the heat wave we had! Hope it wasn’t too hot…can’t wait to have you all back.

Wonderful place

  • Stayed: Jun 2013
This Place is really fantastic!!! Location is good and the photos was fine. But nobody can't describe this place with photos, you must see it by yourself. The property was VERY CLEAN!!! We are two couples from Sweden, and we have never rented such a good place before. The owner was very helpful and answered all our questions. We would really recommend this place to our friends. One thing about the restaurants in Pescadero and also the shops. The people there were not so friendly, we don't know if it was because that we are Tourists, but I Think the need to change their behaviour. We are used to all friendly people in the restaurants in California.

Owner's Response: Our first international guests AND from Sweden!!! My grandparents would be so proud ;-) Thrilled you found the Cottage so clean and comfortable. I work very hard to keep it as spotless as I can! I am disappointed that you didn’t have a great experience with the locals in Pescadero. Pescadero was just rated one of America’s happiest seaside towns by Coastal Living Magazine. I’m sad you didn’t experience that-maybe next time if you’re out our way. Thanks again for staying with us!
