QUIET COTTAGE ON 5 ACRES MINUTES FROM MENDOCINO AND OCEAN

Mendocino Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Adjacent to State Forest, Minutes to Mendocino and Ocean

This 700 square foot cottage is located on 5 secluded acres and was designed and built entirely by the owners. The cottage includes many special touches such as open beamed ceilings milled with local redwood. The cottage has tons of natural light. A wood pellet stove provides cozy heat and ambiance with the push of a button. There are also electric heaters in the bedroom and bathroom for additional warmth.

The cabin includes a private outdoor shower equipped with hot water, a private deck, an indoor claw foot bathtub and a compact yet full kitchen. The bedroom is outfitted with a locally made, very comfortable queen bed (Flo-Bed). There is also a twin bed which is perfect for kids. An additional futon with bedding is available to sleep a fourth person.

We are very kid friendly. Let us know and we will get out our trykes and cars for your child and feel free to come by and show them the bunny. We also have a very friendly dog but she stays on our side of the property most of the time.

We are also happy to provide recommendations for dining, beaches, trails or whatever else you are interested in seeing.

Jackson State Forest is our next door neighbor. There is a trail that leads from the property into the forest and we will leave you a map. Located ten minutes north of Mendocino and ten minutes south of Fort Bragg and five minutes from what we think is the best beach in the area.

A Perfect Family Get-Away

  • 5 of 5
What a perfect place for our young family! We were welcomed so warmly with a personal greeting and little extras that perfectly suited to us. The cottage was warm and cozy and offered every amenity we could want. Though quiet and tucked away in the red woods, the location was perfect for quick drives to a variety of activities - small town strolls, beach adventures, the famous skunk train and vineyards. Molly, the dog, was the sweetest and made us feel at home. We did not want to leave!

Perfect little cottage

  • 5 of 5
Very charming cabin! Clean and neat with lots of cute and personal touches. Everything you would need with no running to the store for this or that. Beautiful views of the forest set on a nice, quiet piece of property. Wonderful owners who leave you to your privacy once you arrive. They also have a dog that everyone loves. Cottage cute with nice flowers. We went abalone diving nearby and would love to go back to the same place. Awesome getaway!

Rather than simply chime in on all the five-star reviews — with which I all agree — I wanted instead to point out small things that we loved about this absolutely lovely cottage:

- the way the morning sun shines directly on the table on the porch — perfect for morning coffee
- speaking of morning coffee: having organic coffee beans + burr grinder + half and half already there = awesome
- the gorgeous claw foot bathtub
- a collection of DVDs, and a great-sounding radio
- delicious pastries and fruits, perfect for breakfast
- the warm living room, thanks to the wood pellet stove
- Molly, who would sit in front of our door and hang out with our Maltese / miniature poodle mutt
- the water pressure and temperature — actually, *everything* about the outdoor showers
- the stillness of the walking trails nearby, and the hand-drawn map that showed us the way

We've never rented anything at VRBO before, and Melinda's cottage has now raised our future rentals to an impossibly high standard.

Definition of a Cabin Getaway has been changed!

Words cannot express how pleased we were with our stay at this charming cabin. We looked long and hard to find a cabin to rent on our two week California Coast and this property has probably ruined us for all future cabin rentals. It was the perfect stay and our family had a great time. The interior is all wood and extremely warm. The property owners had fresh fruit and pastries upon our arrival and bottle of sparkling cider. The owners welcomed us when we arrived but left us alone after that except for our occasional questions. Our girls loved the property watch dog who came and visited numerous times (we were missing our dog so that was great!). My wife wanted to take the humongous bath tub home with us. The outside shower was an amazing experience (although I would suggest not doing it right after the bathtub has been filled, give the hot water heater some time to recover). We cannot wait to return...if we had known how much we were goign to love this property we would have doubled our stay. A real find!! All future rentals will be compared to this one! The only suggestion I would have is for an outdoor BBQ or Grill...but really that is it.

Owner's Response: Thank you Dave and family! We don't solicit reviews from our guests so we are always grateful to get them. BBQ has been purchased! (I actually purchased it before your review...thought we needed one).

Amazing little hideaway!

  • 5 of 5
This guest house was perfect for a romantic getaway! When we arrived there was fresh fruit and pastries waiting for us in the kitchen and the fire was prepared for us to start if the weather became cold. I would recommend this vacation rental to anyone. Beautiful scenery for hiking, biking and getting down to the beach. We will DEFINITELY be coming back to stay at this rental.

My husband and I loved this getaway in the woods! We enjoyed tea on the deck, the outdoor shower and the well-equipped space during our three-day stay. Sleeping upstairs was like sleeping in a treehouse, surrounded by trees and windows.
