BODEGA BAY IS YOUR BACKYARD...

Bodega Bay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 1 bathroom cottage, right on the bay, with stunning views.

Gull Cottage is an old fisherman’s cottage that narrowly escaped the wrecking ball. Thankfully, it was rescued by some folks who had great respect for the history of this small fishing village. They renovated it, added all the modern conveniences, but left the period look and feel of the old structure. From the living room, dining area, deck and hot tub, you can sit and watch the fishing boats go by. A wide variety of birds make their homes in our Cypress trees. The waters and bay flats below the cottage provide food for sandpipers, kingfishers, herons, egrets, pelicans, cormorants and more. On any given day you might spot an osprey diving for fish, sea lions and harbor seals gliding through the calm waters, or a pair of playful sea otters teasing the gullible gulls…all without budging from your chair. Gull Cottage is a charmingly decorated two bedroom (with one queen bed and one twin) one bath hideaway. It comfortably accommodates a maximum of three adults. There is a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, and living room. All have stunning views of the bay, marinas, and Bodega Head, but there's WiFi, a television and DVD player...just in case. Outside, the private redwood deck is a perfect spot to sip a glass (or two) of your favorite wine and watch the magnificent sunset. If you're thinking you'd rather relax in the spa, don't worry. You can see the sunset from there, too! Gull Cottage is located just off Hwy 1 in the historic Village district of Bodega Bay, within walking distance of gift shops, restaurants, grocery stores/delicatessens and wine boutique.

Suitability:
  • not suitable for children
  • pets not allowed
  • non smoking only

My family and I have always loved Bodega Bay. Most of them live in northern California now, so rather than visiting each of them separately, I got into the habit of renting a place in Bodega Bay so everyone could come here to be together When this old fisherman's cottage came on the market I jumped on the opportunity to finally have my own little place. The location, right on the bay and in the historic part of the village, made it an obvious choice for me. I can walk to restaurants, grocery stores, the post office, my favorite wine bar. I can sit for hours just watching the wildlife, the fishing boats...all from my window. If I feel like a drive, I'm less than an hour from gorgeous vinyards and wineries, from historical towns like Santa Rosa, Sebastopol and Petaluma. An hour's drive puts me in downtown San Francisco. And of course Bodega Bay itself is a small, close community. Even though I'm not there year-around, I still feel very much a part of it, and have made some good friends that I look forward to seeing a couple of times a year.

In Gull Cottage, you truly feel a part of what created and what sustains Bodega Bay as a community. It's a completely different experience than if you were to stay in one of the newer houses on the golf course. Seeing the wildlife so up close and personal, you are reminded of the thriving Native American culture that once called this area home. Watching the fishing boats go out and return with their catch, gazing down on what was once the local creamery (and during Prohabition a bootleg operation) it's easy to believe that Bodega Bay was given its name because it was a ship's store. Gull Cottage has stunning views from nearly every room, surrounding you with the very essence of Bodega Bay.

The place was absolutely fantastic. It is very clean and quite honestly, the wonderful pictures do not really do it justice. I loved it from the minute we walked in.

Thank you so much. I think I fell in love all over again in your place.

Cozy Bodega Bay Cottage

This property is pretty much as advertised, comfortable and right on the bay. The cottage was very clean, very private, and close to all of what BB has to offer. The views from the living room are fantastic and there is always something going on in the water. We watched seals and sea lions chasing fish right in front of the cottage. With the windows open we could hear the gulls, seal lions and fog horns. Really gave you a sense of being on the water. The check in procedure was extremely easy and both the owner and local agency were great to deal with during our booking.

Bodega Bay is known worldwide for scenic beauty, diverse wildlife (it's one of the top birding destinations) and of course as the location for Alfred Hitchcock's classic film 'The Birds'. A wealth of wineries are less than an hour's drive through lovely countryside. Book a tour or design your own and hire a limousine. Why not throw in a hot air balloon ride over the vineyards? For your dining pleasure, a wide variety of restaurants are accessible by foot or car. 'Wine Surfing' at nearby Gourmet au Bay is a must-do on a sunny afternoon. Horseback rides along the sea cliffs are but a short drive from Bodega Bay. Local outfitters offer kayak lessons and rentals, whale watching and sportfishing in season. For a truly unique experience, visit Osmosis Sanctuary and Spa nearby in Freestone and enjoy a cedar enzyme bath and pagoda massage. Spend quiet time before or after in their meditation garden surrounded by boulders, stone pathways, ponds and indigenous flora. Or simply kick back in front of the large picture window and watch the Osprey, Pelicans and Terns dive for fish. You're likely to see Sea Lions, Harbour Seals and even River Otters as well. And the sunsets are something to be savored.
