Absolutely beautiful and relaxing! We will definitely be staying again. Highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had such a relaxing stay. Mary is such a sweet lady and she definitely thinks of everything. We felt so comfortable as if we were at home. The house is so welcoming and you have everything you need right there. Normally we eat out on vacation; however I didn't mind cooking and doing dishes looking into the beautiful redwoods. We look forward to returning in the future for another stay, which we hope to be longer than our last.

Forest Cottage

  • 4 of 5

This home is a gem in the forest. We only had two days there and it wasn't enough. It is a very comfortable home with lovely gardens outside. Everything you could need is there in the home. If you like to relax in a comfy chair and read a good book, this is the home for you. The upstairs library is loaded with good books and chairs to set and read. It was so quiet back there too. No noise from town yet Mendocino is just a few minutes away.

Excellent experience

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay while celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary. Mary is a lovely person and her thoughtfulness shows in so many ways through out the cottage. The cottage is warm and comforting. A perfect place to relax.

I don’t know that we will make our way that direction again since there are so many places to explore in this world but if we do, we look forward to seeing Mary again.

Close to Heaven

  • 5 of 5

A stay at this cottage is like an escape to the pages of an enchanting storybook. The soundtrack of perfect isolation includes only the birds softly singing and the sea breeze gently whispering through the trees. Occasionally you can even hear the far-off crash of ocean waves. The accommodations are cozy, so comfortable, and immaculately clean. Though you are surrounded with the majesty of the redwoods and the nearby ocean, with all of their attendant adventures, it is difficult to ever want to leave the property. Mary's garden is lovely and peaceful, and she has thought of every possible detail to make your stay as perfect as possible. I've stayed in many vacation rentals and really, she has thought of everything. She even provides the groceries for your first morning's breakfast. My week's stay there was a slice of heaven in my life that I will not soon forget. If you want a magical escape to the northern California coast, book this now. But please leave a week open for me to return!

Charming cottage with a wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

Mary & Peter were wonderful hosts from the outset. Mary was responsive and called to talk me through details of the cottage itself, how to get there, feedback on restaurants on the drive up and advised me to bring an extra coat due to the heavy fog! The cottage itself is darling, with every detail attended to. Mary provided us with a bottle of wine, fresh fruit, milk, eggs and butter. Not to mention coffee, tea and basics in terms of spices and other kitchen essentials. Mary anticipated every need, from the cozy robes to the soaps and lotions. And her garden is beautiful! We enjoyed many an evening grilling outside while enjoying the tranquility of the garden as the sun set. The location of the cottage is great, less than 5 minutes to Mendocino village. Overall, I would highly recommend staying here and we will definitely be back!

We could not have dreamt of a better stay. From the gardens, the soft beauty of the surrounding land, the quaint comfort of the cottage, and the heartfelt details Mary provides, a stay here will deliver in excess in the best way. It is so amazing to be in what feels like perfect seclusion, with Main street in Mendocino just minutes away. We will be back again, and again, and again...
