House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps up to 6)

Carole's Cove guests receive a complimentary welcome gift basket of locally crafted items and coffee. Whether you are thinking about writing that novel you always wanted to start, unplugging from the hustle and bustle or just getting together with friends and loved ones, our family cabin is the perfect get away. Located on an acre lot, 3 miles north of Mendocino Village and 5 miles south of Fort Bragg, with lovely landscaped gardens perfect for bird watching, picnics or croquette. Inside you will find thoughtfully decorated bedrooms, a full bath with garden views and a fully equipped kitchen and dining area that seats 6 to 8 people. Relax by the fire of the wood burning stove, sip a glass of wine on the deck while watching the sunset or play a rousing game of scrabble, every thing you need is here, just pack your toothbrush.

Walk to the Point Cabrillo Lighthouse, beach comb on the secluded beach, watch the sea lions basking in the sun. Enjoy whale watching from the bluffs or right from the cozy comfort of the cabin. Take a ride on the Skunk Train, Play a round of golf at the Little River Inn or enjoy a hot tub and massage at the Sweetwater Inn. Cocktail hour at the Mendocino Hotel is a must!

About Amanda Dutra

My family and I have owned this property for more than 30 years and continue to enjoy time spent together here. I have always enjoyed gardening and take pride in finding unique garden art and birdhouses to add to the landscape.

Amanda Dutra purchased this house in 1979

What makes this house unique

Conveniently located between Mendocino and Fort Bragg.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The cabin and location was wonderful. It was well prepared, clean and very comfortable. The view was amazing, both from the porch and living room and the walks to the beach, the lighthouse and the seal rock. We were in Fort Bragg Saturday and decided to go back to the cabin early just to enjoy it. Carole's Cozy Cabin is everything promised and more! Thanks for a great stay.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Great place, big, great grassy yard, great garden, great walks, nice private beach, great views of the ocean from the cliffs, well taken care of, well-stocked kitchen, plenty of firewood to keep you warm at night. Beds were comfortable. Great place.

Location and comfort supreme!

  • 5 of 5

Great location with the ocean, hiking trails and lighthouse steps away from this, cute, cozy cabin. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed, a real cooks kitchen! We loved the yard with the flowers and artistic details. We can't think of anything negative to say and would definitely book again! Tl

Best stress-free getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I visited for a few days and had the perfect getaway weekend! The cabin is extremely well-kept, clean, and comfortable with a huge yard area for kids and families. We couldn't have asked for a better view with each of our meals at the dining room table. There is a lot to do and see in Mendocino and Fort Bragg with Carole's Cove being a perfect location between the two cities. I guarantee you will forget all of your stresses and worries once you set foot at this cabin - thanks for such a memorable weekend! We will definitely be back!

Wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at Carole's Cove!

This place is a super cozy cabin, with all of the amenities. Very private with an awesome view. So close to the light house and beach.

The group I was with boogie boarded, body surfed and abalone dived!

Loved it!

Wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for allowing us to experience the coast in a new way. We’re sorta locals (over the mountains/Lake Co.) but past visits we camped or did day trips. What luxury to have all the comforts of home as our headquarters and explore at leisure. Thanks for the welcome gifts-----that was just the beginning of a lovely time-beaches, light house, hikes, tide pools- up close with seals and starfish, and a place for board games and family time. The happy spirit lives within these walls. Peggy, Rick, Asia and Ethan Jones

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you! The kids loved relaxing on the hammock and having the freedom to run around your lovely property. They also watched, for the first time, “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and “Smurfs.” The warm fire made the cabin a cozy retreat. We truly enjoyed waking up to nature’s sounds: the waves, the sea lions, and birds. Will definitely come again for our yearly tradition in 2015.
