A gas BBQ is located on the deck. The living room is equipped with a flat screen TV, DISH high definition service, WiFi, blue tooth dock for music on your phone or tablet, DVD player, and a DVD library of movies filmed in the area.

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.

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

The Larkin cottage is absolutely adorable and perfect for our stay in Mendocino while my husband and I were guests at a wedding. The cottage was cozy, clean and there was much attention to detail from the wonderful host Linda. Would definitely recommend to friends.

Thank you!

Fantastic!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Larkin Cottage. Linda is just a wonderful hostess. She has an amazing eye for detail and is the most thoughtful hostess of any place I've ever stayed at. Every amenity you can think of, it's there!

The outside of the property is immaculately yet beautiful kept. There's chairs outside next to the front door for drinking coffee or wine (whichever you prefer!). The hot tub was great on a chilly night and for staring out at the stars. Inside is just as sweet. There is a great gas fireplace to warm up next to, Dish tv and bookshelf full of books in the living room, and the kitchen is wonderfully stocked with everything you'd need for cooking. The bed was just perfect (my boyfriend is 6'3 and he was totally comfortable in it).

The details is what stands Linda apart from other property owners. She always has a basket of local goodies - beer or wine, coffee, and personalized Larkin Cottage glasses, amongst other things. She has big fluffy robes, towels and hair dryer and even a flat iron for those inclined.

We met her the second time we were there and she was just extremely attentive to everything. We'll be back!

Our stay at this lovely cottage was the perfect getaway. We plan to stay longer on our next visit. Linda was so gracious and she has thought of every detail to make the cottage a home away from home. We appreciated the basket of local goodies and the robes are a special touch. We have stayed in Mendocino many times through the years and this cottage surpasses them all in privacy and it is so clean !!! We are so glad to have found this little slice of heaven in the village.

Relaxing and picturesque stay at the Larkin Cottage in Mendocino

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our long weekend at the Larkin Cottage! Every room was so cozy and inviting - we felt right at home. We really appreciated all the extra touches too, like the soft bath robes, complementary wine, and breakfast goodies. A weekend soaking in the hot tub and lounging by the fire was exactly what we needed. Thank you Larkin Cottage! We will most certainly be back.

Larkin Cottage: a real treasure

  • 5 of 5

The Larkin Cottage is one of the nicest rentals we have ever stayed in! Linda was not only gracious in welcoming us, but very helpful in providing great places to visit, and a wide range of places to eat.

The cottage was immaculate and totally cute. Kitchen was well outfitted for cooking; bed was comfortable; fireplace was wonderful to sit in front of and read/daydream; nice shower/tub. Late December and bushes were blooming in the yard -- a private compound of 2-4 lovely cottages. The cottage is a short drive or 20 minute(?) walk into town.

Glorious.

Owner's Response: So funny that you commented about the garden. I am always amazed that there seems to be something in bloom at all times of the year. The rhododendrons will be coming soon. The first ones to open up are in The Larkin Cottage yard.
