La Petite Maison is a beautiful country cottage five minutes from the Mendocino village and coastline. Located on a secluded five acres and surrounded by captivating redwoods, meadows, and lovely gardens, this charming cottage offers peaceful quietude and complete rest and relaxation.
The lovely decor and interior light is uplifting and inspiring and guarantees a sense of serenity and calm.
La Petite Maison is the perfect retreat for any couple or individual looking for a charming residence to return to after sightseeing and shopping in the bustling village of Mendocino which is famous for its beautiful forests, beaches, rivers, state parks, botanical gardens, and vineyards.
This private oasis was absolutely perfect for our week-long stay. Lots of love and attention was put into creating a restful, romantic experience. The decor, gardens, fireplace, bed, balcony and other amenities made it difficult to leave. Also, a good location for getting to other places e.g. the ocean, parks, gardens, etc. The host, Mary, was lovely and very responsive, but never intrusive. She was delightful and we look forward to a future stay.
My husband and I stayed at La Petite Maison for 5 nights prior to the destination wedding of our nephew in Mendocino. I wish I had booked this charming spot for the entire stay. Nestled in the redwoods, Mary and Peter have established this sweet cottage with every comfort in mind. The surrounding gardens are a joy as is Mary with a patio, table and chairs for relaxation. Meticulous attention to detail provides the guests with every necessity met. The kitchen is wonderfully stocked plus upon arrival the fridge contains wine, English muffins, butter, eggs, jam, and fruit along with a small container of milk.
There are comfortable chairs and a small sofa downstairs; the bedroom upstairs is
just so pleasant with an ample supply of towels, soaps, and skylights which provide a feeling of space and light. La Petite Maison is a welcoming respite for the tired traveler and
Mary is on the property to greet you and answer all of your questions. Bravo!!!!!!!!!
We had a nice two day visit to La Petite Maison. The setting is beautiful and the owners are more than accommodating. Mary met us on our arrival. The appointments in the unit are very nice and she couldn't have been more helpful. Lovely touches throughout including providing comfy bathrooms and food items for breakfast. Very restful visit.
Where do we begin. We spent 6 evenings at La Petite Maison and honestly wish we could've stayed longer. Mary was there to greet us upon our arrival. Everything was in order and a welcome change from our hot valley weather. We became fast friends with Mary & Peter, what great hosts they are. The property is even more beautiful than the pictures. A purely delightful getaway. We have not felt so relaxed in quite some time. The cabin is perfect for two, you almost feel like you are in two different cabins as the upstairs is quite different. We loved the decor and the skylights above the bed (to us) were very welcoming. We were able to enjoy the stars a few nights that we were there and woke up bright & early, but don't fret, if you want to sleep in, they have provided eye masks for the guests. Mary & Peter have thought of everything. The property is tucked away surrounded by redwoods and Mary's beautiful garden. There's a pond in front of the cottage where Prince Kermit lives and lots of tiki torches that enhance the outdoor atmosphere. Fortunately for us, we were able to enjoy the wood stove every evening we were there. We prepared a lot of our own meals at the cottage, enjoyed the quiet atmosphere, put a puzzle together and again, just relaxed. Mendocino village is so close, we were able to visit the town, Ft. Bragg, Botanical Gardens, Point Cabrillo Light House, and the ocean all within minutes, but honestly our favorite was being at the cottage. We've stayed at a lot of VRBO homes, but will definitely make it back to La Petite Maison. Date of stay: Jun 23-28th, 2016. Gina & Gary
In every way an outstanding place to stay when visiting Mendocino...with Mary's warm welcome, the beautiful setting, the cozy fireplace, and the charming decor, this was just the perfect place to stay to enjoy the North Coast. Everything provided was wonderful...welcome snacks, a lending library, tiki torches for the garden...plus many, many decorating details which Martha Stewart would envy were she to visit. Everything is thoughtfully outfitted in the kitchen as well so that you can make simple meals to enjoy the beautiful setting at leisure. We wish would could have stayed longer and certainly look forward to returning when we come back to Mendocino. Honestly we were concerned that the property is a little out of town, but it turned out that it was just perfect...close enough to drive in for the afternoon to explore, but a wonderful peaceful retreat to be savored in the mornings and evenings.
My spouse and I came to La Petite Maison for our honeymoon in July 2014. The five acre property is serene and peaceful. The cottage is so lovingly decorated and the perfect size for a couple. The second floor with the bedroom has high ceilings, skylights, and is very spacious. We were able to see the annual Perseid meteor shower laying in our bed and looking above through the skylights.
There are majestic redwoods in the backyard. During the past 13 years we have stayed in other hotels as well as bed and breakfast establishments in Mendocino and La Petite Maison is our favorite. We came again in 2015 and this year for my birthday. We think the La Petite Maison is the best value in Mendocino.
