CASPAR COTTAGE, CHARMING PRIVATE MENDOCINO VACATION RENTAL

Mendocino Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Caspar Cottage is a charming, quiet, nicely and newly furnished cottage that we built on our five private acres, just 3 miles up the ridge from the ocean and 10 minutes from Mendocino or Fort Bragg. It's a perfect place for a honeymoon, anniversary, special occasion or quiet retreat. It has a comfortable queen bed with down comforter and nice linens, sleeper sofa, fully equipped custom kitchen, gas BBQ and picnic table with string lights above for enjoying the outdoors in the evenings, lovely custom cabinetry and a beautiful marble tiled bathroom with a jetted tub and large shower.

The cottage is private, spotless, very comfortable and nicely appointed. Flames from an enameled European propane stove bring the warmth and coziness of a fire with the convenience of a thermostat. There is a CD player, DIRECTV w/ HBO, DVD/VCR with small library of films, Satellite INTERNET connection, iron and hairdryer. We provide coffee and tea, toast and jam and fresh fruit and flowers. From the cottage you can walk through the Redwoods to a beautiful WATERFALL, as we are near the Russian Gulch State Park Waterfall Trail and bicycle trails in Jackson State Forest.

We will gladly direct you to great restaurants, nice beaches, beautiful hikes and activities on the coast. For more PHOTOS and GUESTS' COMMENTS please visit our CasparCottage WEBSITE. Please CALL FOR questions and details and RESERVATIONS.

We built this sweet cottage on our five private acres near the end of the road at the eastern end of the Russian Gulch State Park. We also built our home and a small woodworking shop, and raised our children here. We have lived on the Mendocino coast for 35 years and love the Mendocino community.

Diane purchased this cottage in 1985

Mendocino is a beautiful coastal village perched on a headlands overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It has a very active artists' community with many art galleries as well as fine restaurants and shops. There are five State Parks along our coast, perfect for hiking and biking and kayaking and birdwatching and beach combing. There are many activities and festivals throughout the year. Whale watching weekends in March, a Film Festival in early June, the Mendocino Music Festival in July, Mendocino Art Center Fairs in July and November, Winesong! in September and Wine and Mushrooms and Crab Festivals in November and January.

We enjoy sharing our little oasis with guests who appreciate nature, peace and quiet and a comfortable, nicely appointed cottage to relax in and enjoy beautiful Mendocino coast. It's all about hospitality! Please visit our CasparCottage website and the Guests' Comments page.

WE MISSED THE OCEAN!

  • 5 of 5
So, we picked Mendocino to visit and get our ocean fix. We used to live in the bay area and the ocean was so much a part of our life. The Caspar Cottage was the perfect location because it was always bathed in sunshine as the ocean wasn't. Only 3 miles from the ocean in a little patch of heaven. We got to sit outside and have a glass of wine and it definitely felt like summer. The cottage is very warm and cozy and we loved it. Great amenities and flowers on the porch, in the garden and on the kitchen table. We really did feel at home as soon as we walked in. We would recommend the Caspar Cottage and whenever we need an ocean fix again.....we'll be back.

PERFECT MENDOCINO COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
We've visited Mendocino a number of times, and Caspar Cottage is now easily our favorite place to stay in the area. Just north of town, the location is very private, quiet and peaceful, and Diane and Bob were great hosts. The cottage is nicely decorated and well appointed, and more spacious that it might appear in the photos. Loved the fresh flowers from the owner's garden that greeted us on our arrival, as well as the charming potted flowers and plants outside the front door. The bed was very comfortable, and we enjoyed soaking in the Jacuzzi tub at the end of the day. We never got around to watching any of them, but there's also a wonderful selection of movies on DVD & VHS for anyone so inclined. The short hike to a beautiful waterfall in Russian Gulch State Park was well worth a visit. Other highlights of our visit were dinners at the Albion River Inn restaurant (ask for table 4, with a great coastal view) and Cafe Beaujolais, and a fabulous hike on the cliffs above the ocean at Pine Beach. We had the place to ourselves, and were happily surprised to find a bountiful and diverse display of wildflowers. All in all, a really fine place to celebrate our 25th anniversary (seems to be a trend for Caspar Cottage!)

PRIVATE AND PRISTINE

  • 5 of 5
This charming, immaculate cottage, spoiled us for any other places! We had to stay in a different cabin, owned by different people near the Russian River and we were completely disillusioned by that experience. Mostly, because THIS, Caspar Cottage, was amazing and perfect in every way. When we arrived we were greeted with fresh fruit, flowers, bread, and really good coffee. There were even freshly picked strawberries from the owner's garden, which were delicious! We drove a rental car up from San Francisco and as we got closer to Mendocino, the drive became captivating, through the redwoods. Roll down your windows and smell the fresh earthiness of the air, it is revitalizing. The waterfall trail that is within walking distance of the cottage is absolutely enchanting. The first time we hiked it, we met no one on the trail, and the breeze had blown wild, pink, Rhododendron blossoms onto our walking path. I felt like we were inside a greeting card or travel magazine.
We loved the fanciful, little town of Mendocino.
Simply walking from the town to the seashore there was a mystical experience for us. Clear views of the beautiful seaside, and rarely meeting another soul made our vacation spiritual and magical. Caspar cottage itself, lent a helping hand. It is extremely clean and seems new. I found everything I needed to cook and grill. There is a lovely little picnic area in the manicured side yard. The landscaping is beautiful and meticulous, the little artistic touches everywhere are splendid. Everywhere I looked inside and outside of the cottage, I was met with little surprises, from Orchids growing in the bathroom, to hand made ceramic hearts in an artful display amongst the plants on the front porch. The cottage is expertly decorated, from the pictures to the quilts and pillows. The bed linens are so clean that I felt like they were brand new, they were super soft and heavenly. The bathroom has a full, jetted tub and a shower, and is all new and clean, a spa experience can be had in there, if you find the time.
We were fortunate to have Jughandle beach and walking trails completely to ourselves, it felt like our own private getaway! Exploring the Krummholz along the ecological stair case walk, made our 6 year old son feel like he was in a fairytale. He also took photos of the gardens in the Owner's yard next door, he loved this place. The sea glass beach is not far away and was fun.
True peace and relaxation can be had here.

PERFECT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
We rented Caspar Cottage for 5 nights to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. The cottage was even more charming than the pictures, if that's possible! Beautiful, peaceful setting, very well constructed, high quality, an abundance of amenities. The attention to detail was everywhere.The bed was extremely comfortable, everything was spotless. We could not have picked a better place! And the price-I feel like we stole the place! Nowhere else would you find such a unique and special getaway like this for the money. Very conveniently located to a plethora of activities and scenic wonders. Simply drive 3 miles on 409 rd, then either turn right or left onto HWY 1-within minutes there are endless beaches and bluffs, restaurants, shops, adventures, etc. On our way into Mendocino that first day, we stopped at several great wineries on our very scenic route through the Anderson Valley. During our stay we very much enjoyed :hiking from the cottage to the beautiful waterfall in the redwoods, having picnics on Pine Beach and Jughandle Beach, eating lunch and shopping at Noyo Harbor, experiencing seal watching at MacKerricher Park, hiking to the light house, 'beach hopping' along HWY 1, exquisite dining at Ledford House which included seeing grey whales spouting in the ocean! Overall, the area was so serene and quiet. Endless beauty. Not to mention the short drive to the redwoods in Montgomery Forest.Everyone should be able to experience the majestic redwoods in their lifetime. Indescribable. We will never forget this trip to Mendocino,the fabulous time we had, nor the place where we stayed- Caspar Cottage. Bob and Diane are such genuine and friendly people-very helpful and kind hosts. We already have friends who are wanting to look into staying at Caspar Cottage, and we would love to return again .If you're looking to rekindle your spirit, this is the place!

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
We found the cottage to be in excellent condition and well cared for. The hosts were very friendly and took care of every last detail. Caspar Cottage is in a great location that felt secluded but was within an easy drive to the beach and several parks. A good value that we would recommend to anyone looking to explore the Mendocino area. Can't wait to go back!

TOTAL RELAXATOIN

  • 5 of 5
Once again, we ventured to Mendocino and Caspar Cottage. What a relaxing and wonderful weekend. Rained on Friday, but stopped long enough for us to walk along Glass Beach. Saturday and Sunday offered beautifully sunny skies. What an awesome place to find serenity and reconnect with your loved ones and nature. This place truly is a treasured spot and beautifully crafted by the owners. Looking forward to another wonderful trip, maybe in the summer months with the kids. The owners provide a great deal of hospitality and comfort. Highly recommend staying here!
