About Linda Moore, Owner

I purchased The Larkin Cottage in 2006. I really was not looking to buy a property in Mendocino but I had recently retired and came to the area to visit a friend. I saw this lovely property and knew it would be a wonderful place to share with my family and friends. The Larkin Cottage was an extra bonus!

Linda Moore, Owner purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Linda Moore, Owner chose Mendocino

The Larkin Cottage property has so much character. The main house on the property was built in the late 1800's and originally was located closer to the highway. It has been well loved and cared for over the years. The Larkin Cottage was the original chicken coop, converted to housing in the 1940's for the original owner's son to live in after he married. In the 1970's the guest house was added and much later the gazebo and play house. All of the buildings have been remodeled in the last 5 years.

What makes this cottage unique

The Larkin Cottage is so private and yet so close to town. It really is a special place.

Lovely, Comfortable Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a thoroughly enjoyable time in the Larkin Cottage. The furnishings were carefully and

decoratively chosen and the kitchen was well stocked. We enjoyed the gift basket of goodies and the bottle of wine. The cottage is in a great location for exploring the Mendocino coast. Linda went out of her way to make sure we were happy and satisfied. The house is on a beautifully landscaped property and the rhododendrons were just coming into bloom! All in all a wonderful place to stay.

Owner's Response: Nancy, the white rhododendron near the steps to the cottage is the first one to bloom on the entire property. The others bloom from April to June. May is quite a show around here with all of the color. I even have a yellow one now! ~Linda

Charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 3 nights and everything was perfect, loved the location, away from bustle of town yet close enough to not have a long drive from anywhere, the hot tub was a perfect compliment to an already darling place.

WE WILL BE RETURNING TO LARKIN COTTAGE!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Larkin Cottage exceeded our expectations. The pictures do not do the cottage justice! It is so quaint and private; the perfect setting for a relaxing getaway.

The cottage was very clean and Linda thought of everything we would need. She had prepared a guest basket and also she was so thoughtful to get my finace a birthday gift for a local store.

The backyard with the spa was so quiet and private. The cottage was also equipped with robes which is what we lived in for the weekend (especially since I had forgotten mine!)

We will definitely be returning to this beautiful little cottage.
