Located on Trinidad Bay, this Cape Cod style guest cottage is just steps away from beautiful Luffenholtz Beach and the spectacular coastal views from Tepono Point. The scenic and rocky Trinidad coast is one of the most spectacular and pristine segments of the California coast. We invite you to experience the dramatic landscapes of Luffenholtz Beach, explore the tidepools at nearby Baker Beach, or enjoy the dramatic ocean vistas from nearby Houda Point, a popular beach for surfers, painters, and bird watchers. At the end of the day, you can soak in our outdoor hot tub, relax at the creek side patio, or enjoy a glass of wine sitting around the fire pit overlooking the Pacific Ocean while enjoying the sunset. Located just 2 miles north is the quaint seaside village of Trinidad, with restaurants, shops, and galleries. The Arcata Airport is less than 10 minutes away. Luffenholtz Beach Cottage is very private and is surrounded by lush mature gardens. It has a queen size bed, cable TV, WiFi, a fully equipped kitchen, and a full bathroom with tub and shower. There is an outdoor deck with views of the forest and two comfortable chairs and a Weber barbecue.

Why Tom Mitchell and Tom Sandberg chose Trinidad
This property is located on one of the most beautiful scenic stretches of California Coast, just steps away from Luffenholtz Beach. The property has fully mature gardens, including rhododendrons, azaleas, hydrangeas, and Japanese maples. There is a hot tub located in a secluded spot at the rear of the property with nice views of the garden and the ocean in the distance. There is also a fire pit with two Adirondack chairs with a great views of Luffenholtz Cove, and a very private spot with a table and chairs next to a stream.
What makes this Guest House unique
We fell in love with the incredible seaside location; views of the ocean from many vantage points; and the large, fully mature garden. Nearby beaches are within easy walking distance, and the village of Trinidad -- with restaurants, a great grocery store, and shops and galleries -- is just a short ride away. Those who like to hike will have lots of choices for hiking trails through the redwoods and coastal bluffs at state and national parks within an easy drive.

Awesome, quiet and clean retreat!
My husband and I decided to get out of the East Bay for Thanksgiving and I randomly found this great cottage.
I've never been farther north than Hopland in California and really didn't know what to expect. The cottage is exactly as described. It is literally steps from the very cool Luffenholtz Beach. There is a river that runs through the property and a fire pit with chairs peacefully overlooking both the river and the ocean.
The cottage was perfect for the two of us. It's very clean and has plenty of space.
The owners were very responsive and available for anything we may have needed. There are some fun places to explore both in nearby Moonstone and Trinidad.
Our timing with the weather wasn't so good, as it rained really hard almost the entire time, BUT we found windows of time to go explore anyway. We will aim to come back in the spring.
Very nice!! Small kitchen but we made it work
Clean, simple, and yet cozy this cottage had a great location just a short drive from Trinidad. The area and landscape was well kept and beautiful. It had a wonderful view of the ocean steps away from the cottage by a firepit set up for two. The hosts were very responsive and accommodating but also provided privacy and allowed for seclusion.
Perfect Location and Accommodations
The cottage is a well appointed and perfectly comfortable place to enjoy Trinidad and the surrounding area. Just a few steps down the driveway is one of the most beautiful stretches of beach and the sound of the waves crashing will lull you to sleep each night. We could not have asked for a better place to spend a long weekend.
Just What We Were Looking For
We had a wonderful stay. It was my wife's birthday. We were looking for a serene and pleasant place to stay and Tom and Tom's cottage was just what the doctor ordered. We recommend seaside cottage highly.
Enjoyed the cottage while visiting family in Trinidad. We were busy so we only enjoyed view of the ocean but looked like very easy walk to beach.
This is a beautiful location and objects in the cottage are chosen and placed with care. I loved sitting on the porch and basking in the quiet.
