Overview

North Coast California Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Marigold Cottage is Located in the Historic Village of Mendocino and is Walking Distance to Restaurants, Grocery Stores and Fine Shopping in the Quaint Village of Mendocino.

Marigold is located directly across from the Mendocino Art Center, which makes attending a local play or art event as easy as crossing the street. Walk the Headlands, to Local Beaches or up the Big River Trail. the Scenery Just Outside the Front Door is Spectacular!

More Than 40 Films and Television Shows Have Been Shot in Mendocino, Due to its Charming Victorian-Style Homes and Dramatic Ocean Views. Adjacent Big River Beach Leads up to Big River, Where a gravel trail Leads 8 Miles up Into Redwood Groves Along the River. Many Beautiful Birds, as Well as Land and Sea Animals Can Be Seen.

Marigold Cottage Offers a Very Private and Charming Space that is Close to Everything and Yet Secluded. This is the Ideal Place for that Romantic Weekend, or Retreat Space for Writers and Artists of All Types. The cottage is not suitable for children, as there is a low deck and fireplace/heater within easy reach of a toddler.

What people often don't realize is that October, is one of the most favorable times to visit. While all seasons offer something, October is my favorite month for the warmth of the weather, the slow down of the season (re:less crowds) and the sun that shines warm before the storms of winter. It's a well kept secret, (oops.)

* Marigold Cottage can also be rented in combination with Marigold House (VRBO # 704846), a larger 2 bedroom vacation home on the same property, in order to accommodate up to 6 guests total.

About Zelda

I have lived in Mendocino since the mid-90's. I took an eight year hiatus only to return. Its special here, beautiful, and soothes the soul. Come enjoy the area and all it has to offer, it'll be a trip you'll remember and cherish....so come often.

Why Zelda chose North Coast California

Marigold Cottage is located in the Historic Village of Mendocino. If you want to really feel the quaint village, an authentic walking expereince with all its intricancies, this home is for you.

What makes this cottage unique

Once you park your car, you will not need it to reach all areas of the village; restaurants, grocery stores, art galleries, fine shopping, the beach and headlands. You will need around 5 minutes and comfortable shoes. You can walk in the fresh ocean air of the beautiful coast you just drove to.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Marigold Cottage was the perfect choice for my two-month stay in Mendocino. It is bright, airy and equipped with everything I needed to be comfortable during a longer visit. The gas stove adds to the cozy atmosphere and takes the chill off a cooler day. I especially enjoyed the beautiful gardens. The cottage is convenient to everything, directly across the street from the Mendocino Art Center and a couple blocks to shopping, restaurants, coffee shops, Frankie's ice cream, and the ocean cliff trails in Headlands State Park. I also enjoyed the nature hikes along Big River. Thank you for sharing Marigold Cottage with me.

Sweet serenity!

  • 5 of 5

Marigold cottage was comfortable, very sweet, quiet and clean. It is surrounded by a stunning garden that was bursting with flowers. We enjoyed staying in the heart of the village, hopped across the street to a play and concert, strolled the headlands and walked to local restaurants for dinner. Biking and kayaking along the Big River, a trip highlight for us, were less than a mile away. And groceries, restaurants and shops are all within a few short blocks. Our host, Zelda, was extremely hospitable, friendly and kind.

Sweet Cottage Mendocino

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent a lovely weekend in Zelda's cottage. The bedding was very comfortable, the kitchen had enough equipment to make meals (French press only), including a grill on the porch. The location was excellent. We wandered the few blocks down to the ocean to watch the sunset and moonrise. I would return.

Wonderful, quintessential Mendocino

  • 5 of 5

We recently stated here for my wife's surprise birthday weekend and it did not disappoint. This little cottage is basically downtown, a block from Jessica Fletcher's house, and it is a short walk to the headlands for a splendid sunset view. Even though there are houses nearby there is plenty of privacy. And there's all the amenities you need to cook if that is your plan.

We will certainly be returning to this little, quaint gem.
