About Owner/Manager

I purchased The Larkin Cottage in 2006. I really was not looking to buy a property in Mendocino but I had recently retired and came to the area to visit a friend. I saw this lovely property and knew it would be a wonderful place to share with my family and friends. The Larkin Cottage was an extra bonus!

Owner/Manager purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Owner/Manager chose Mendocino

The Larkin Cottage property has so much character. The main house on the property was built in the late 1800's and originally was located closer to the highway. It has been well loved and cared for over the years. The Larkin Cottage was the original chicken coop, converted to housing in the 1940's for the original owner's son to live in after he married. In the 1970's the guest house was added and much later the gazebo and play house. All of the buildings have been remodeled in the last 5 years.

What makes this cottage unique

The Larkin Cottage is so private and yet so close to town. It really is a special place.

Delightful Mendocino cottage

  • 4 of 5
This cottage was just delightful. It's as pretty as the photos lead you to believe. While not a beachfront property, it's close to everything - the village, the nearby gorgeous beaches, restaurants such as Trillium and Wild Fish. The boutiques are fun to pop into. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and took advantage of the cozy fireplace and porch rockers. So many details were anticipated to make our stay terrific. Thank you!

I needed a few days away from our summer heat and also wanted to visit a friend in the area. I have stayed here before with the previous owner and thought it was nice but with the new owner it's even better! Linda has perfected every detail in this cottage and it is filled with so much charm and love. Got a wonderful rest, enjoyed the coastal air, enjoyed shopping and visiting with my friend and even made a new friend while there! Have already booked it for next year!!

Owner's Response: Mila, I am so excited for your return visit. We had such a great time talking about all of the folk art finds we have come across on our journeys. I'm glad you really enjoyed your getaway from the heat.

Beautiful getaway for two

We had a wonderful extended weekend at the Larking Cottage. The ambiance is quaint and cozy and the perfect location to relax. Linda was wonderful to work with and went out of her way to look up a car service to take us to dinner as well. Highly recommend staying here!

What a place!!! We had a terrific stay at the Larkin Cottage. We had come from a week in San Fransisco and loved the slower pace. The cottage was exactly as stated on the website. There was nothing that we did not find we needed that was not there. The book selection was tremendous and exactly the kind of books I like to read. However... we found there was so much to see in the area that I did not get to read at all. The hot tub was great and used every night. The extras provided by Linda were wonderful and very much appreciated. Would we come back and stay at the Larkin - ABSOLUTELY - and I would recommend it to anyone in the area

What a wonderful stay! The Larkin Cottage was just as described and Linda really has thought of everything in this lovely retreat! From the welcome basket of goodies, information on local establishments, a wonderfully comfortable bed, extra towels, and a well furnished kitchen -- we really enjoyed ourselves! It's a small space, but well designed for comfort and ease of use! Didn't use the grill or hot tub -- but also wonderful nice to haves! The town of Mendocino is just a few blocks away for easy access to shops and restaurants as well. We were glad to be staying just outside of town for quiet and comfort. Would highly recommend the Larkin Cottage if you are looking for a clean, comfortable, and cozy spot in the Mendocino area!

Larkin Cottage/Mendocino

  • 5 of 5
Our recent anniversary stay @ Larkin Cottage in Mendocino was exceptional.

All the lovely amenities provided and the cozy, quiet atmosphere made for an outstanding visit. We travel often & this stay is among our top places! Our host insured the best quality in bath linens, kitchen dishware, etc. Our host maintained a customer service attitude from the day of our first email as well as our entire stay.

Additionally, our host's positive attitude as well as her sense of humor and graciousness left a genuine sense of value she places in all her guests.

The Larkin "take home" wine glasses were a nice treat to remind us of the beauty of our little cottage and that we must plan our next visit!
