Overview

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 brand new Leesa bed (Leesa.com). 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 our 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.

Wonderful Place, Wonderful Hosts

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I love this cottage. This was our second visit, and our two young kids love it as well. The Mendocino area is magical, and there are plenty of things to do, as well as the opportunity to do nothing or as little as you like. The property is cozy, clean and comfortable. Melinda and Jake are really nice people, and their dog Molly is great with kids. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a peaceful and quiet place to stay.

Awesome weekend in Mendocino

  • 5 of 5

Melinda and Jake have a beautiful cottage tucked away in the woods - an incredible setting. The pictures online don't do it justice - has a very traditional Tahoe feel. Our hosts were so friendly and accommodating - they were really knowledgeable about the area, had a fantastic recommendation for a hike (Jug Handle Beach), and couldn't have been more responsive. I'd absolutely recommend this property to others. (Also, their property is right between Mendocino and Ft. Bragg - getting to either town is incredibly simple).

So lovely

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage with our kids to celebrate our anniversery & it was a sweet experience . We were welcomed with blueberry muffins, cider for kids, fruit & other comforting touches: lavender salts for the amazing claw foot tub, candles around the tub, EO soap in the outdoor showers, & go cart for our little boy! It's a perfect location. We went for walks in the woods, to the beach, hiking.. Amazing.

Awesome getaway, down to earth owners....so close to the beach!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't thank Melinda and Jake enough for sharing their wonderful cottage with us. We had such a relaxing few days there. Their family is so welcoming and wonderful...had riding toys for my grandchildren to play with. What a treat after days riding in the car!

We loved our stay and will be back!! Such a beautiful area, their property is secluded and quiet, yet only a few minutes drive to the beach! Thank you :))
