A comfortable queen sized bed fitted with a down comforter, bookcase full of good reading material, slipper chair, and a handsome armoire complete the cheerful and cozy bedroom, from which you can access your private fenced garden to enjoy the peaceful outdoors.

The property borders Van Damme State Forest which features some of the area’s most amazing hiking trails through the unique Pygmy, and stunning Redwood Forests. Our area’s beautiful beaches and rivers, and the gorgeous Village of Mendocino, all found along one of the most pristine coast lines in Northern California, are only minutes away.

About Gabi Fienburgh

The owners, Richard and Gabi first moved to the coast more than 30 years ago, both originally from Europe.

Richard, growing up north of London, left England on the Istanbul Express and ended up in Western Canada. He visited a friend living in Mendocino and fell in love with the coast and the community here and never left. An accomplished musician, he still performs regularly in the “Mendocino Music and Stories” series.

Gabi has a similar story, growing up in Germany, she came to visit a friend in Mendocino and after falling in love with the beauty of the pacific coast and the wonderful people, essentially has been here ever since.

They met here on the coast, a notoriously romantic spot, and have been married for 25 years, raised three children and are now proud grandparents of two.

Along the way they developed their own 'design / build' construction company and have built and restored many fine custom homes on the coast. Gabi is also a licensed massage practitioner and manages a local spa.

Gabi Fienburgh purchased this cottage in 1992

Why Gabi Fienburgh chose Mendocino

After living on the coast for almost 20 years we finally found a place we wanted to buy. On a quiet rural road inland from the fog belt was a cottage, overgrown and with a glorious blossoming cherry tree hidden behind the house. It felt like it could be our home and over the years we have transformed it into a sunlit, open and peaceful place that is the heart of our family.

What makes this cottage unique

Often, if the coast is foggy, just 3 miles inland the sun is shining and the property, though close to the redwoods, has a mix of pine, fir, cypress trees, rhododendrons and open gardens that let the sun shine on us most of the day. Coming from hazy Europe we are still awed by the clear, dark, star filled night skies.

Peaceful, Comfortable and very charming!

  • 5 of 5
Perfect getaway. I celebrated my 50th birthday with my husband and it couldn't have been a better place. Very clean, decorated lovely, the bed was very comfy and the bathroom was roomy with a very large tub. Perfect for taking a relaxing bath. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed. The location was also perfect. We have been vacationing in Mendocino for the last 20 years and this was the first time we rented a house and couldn't have been happier! Gabi and Richard are the perfect hosts! Thank you for the Champagne and hospitality! The Red Barn is a true Gem!

Lovely, comfortable and quiet cottage!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a very relaxing stay at the Red Barn Cottage! Some of the highlights...comfortable bed, full kitchen nicely stocked, glorious soaking tub and very clean! Location was set in the coastal woods...so quiet! Loved that it was away from the busier tourist area! I loved the style of this home, and the extra attention to detail that makes this place so special. Very close to wonderful restaurants and of course Mendocino. This is the perfect place to have a romantic get away and enjoy the lovely North Coast of California! I would recommend this to anyone!! Thank you Gabi and Richard for being so accommodating and very kind!

A True Retreat

  • 5 of 5
What a perfect spot to stay in Mendocino! It is so quiet, off the beaten path, truly sits in the forest, and is exactly like the photos seen in the site. Everything is done to perfection and Richard and Gabe are more of that perfection! What a great getaway from the Bay Area...with great hiking and outrigging on the Big River very close by. Go midweek if you can and you will have Mendocino town completely to yourself. It was a magical few days at a fabulous property. Thank You Richard and Gabe for sharing your place with us. We loved it and will return soon.

Truly a retreat

  • 5 of 5
Mendocino was the location of our honeymoon 35 years ago, and we have visited there many times since in a variety of housing types. This cottage is very nice--convenient, clean, comfortable and well-appointed. What makes it even more special is the hospitality of its owners! My husband, adult son and I were very impressed and totally recommend it. It was hard to leave.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This cottage, located in the beautiful and woodsy area of Little River was quiet, immaculate, and had all the modern conveniences of a 4 star hotel. Hosts Gabi and Richard were very friendly and provided good recommendations that helped us plan some of our activities and dining decisions during our stay. A short 10 minute drive into Mendocino made the location convenient. We would recommend this to anyone looking for a great place to stay on the north coast. Our next visit will definitely be longer!

Girls trip

  • 5 of 5
This is an impeccably cared for property with good construction done by the owner. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed and more. The best part, is Gabriella is a massage therapist and we each had a massage in her studio upstairs during our stay, then a nice hot bath afterwards. The bedding was luxurious and the bed/futon were very comfortable. There's a lovely, private fenced sitting/garden area we enjoyed with a glass of wine at the table and chairs. The only thing that could make it any better would be a hottub. It's a little ways from Mendicino, about 10 min.'s but it didn't seem to be a problem since the views were so gorgeous. The information book was very helpful for hikes, restaurants, etc. Wish we could've stayed longer!
