Romantic 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2) Cottage With Hot Tub

The Larkin Cottage is nestled amongst redwood trees just 3 minutes from the village of Mendocino. It is on the same property as the live-in owner's main residence. The cottage includes all the amenities of home. The kitchen is furnished with ample dishes and pots and pans should you decide not to enjoy the many wonderful restaurants in the area. A gas BBQ is located on the deck. The living room is equipped with a flat screen TV, DISH high definition service, WiFi, blue tooth dock for music on your phone or tablet, DVD player, and a DVD library of movies filmed in the area. The bedroom features a queen size Sleep Number bed outfitted in luxurious linens including a down comforter and plenty of fluffy pillows. Waiting for you outside are porch rockers, a private hot tub, and lush gardens.

The Larkin Cottage property is abundant with beautiful flowers. Care has been taken to make sure that something is blooming every month of the year. The gazebo is a perfect spot for a small wedding. And, don't forget to use the swing near the playhouse!

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 North Coast California

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.

Charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were in Mendocino for a Wedding. The cottage was perfect......Linda(the owner) has thought of everything. We didn't think we would use the hot tub but we loved it. Thank you Linda for all the extra goodies in our Welcome Basket. We will return.

Ps....we loved the location.

We will definitely tell our friends

See you soon,

Pat and John Richter

Delightful Mendocino cottage

  • 5 of 5

Linda's "Larkin Cottage" is charming, well-appointed, scrupulously clean and situated in a quiet, lovely garden setting. Linda was there to greet us, let us know the hot tub was acting up -- and had it fixed in a few hours, without any further intrusion or fuss for us. A fun and delicious gift basket awaited us, all the electronics worked easily and perfectly (wifi too), the bed was very comfy--in short, we not only had NO complaints, everything was wonderful. The coastal village of Mendocino (which we've visited very often), is a two-minute drive away (or a ten-minute walk), and one can hear the muted ocean waves crashing in the distance. Absolutely relaxing (and the hot tub was great!) and a wonderful experience. Definitely would go there again on our next trip to Mendocino.

Perfect cottage in Mendocino

  • 4 of 5

This cottage was just wonderful and I highly recommend it to anyone traveling to the Mendocino coast. Every attention is paid to the furnishings to keep the cottage feel true throughout. The location is very close to town but feels more like you are out in the woods (there is road noise when sitting out on the back deck). The kitchen was well stocked for cooking, all amenities to make a visitor comfortable were well thought out. Even a lovely gift basket upon arrival. The only ding I have to offer is that the hot tub was not clean nor hot. It was a disappointment as were very much looking forward to a long soak on those cold evenings at the coast. Other than that, I'd recommend this to anyone without hesitation.

Owner's Response: DeAnna, thank you for bringing the hot tub situation to my attention. The hot tub has been emptied and refilled and is cleaned before each new guest. Also, I have hired a new service company that has assured the tub will be cleaned and serviced before each new guest. This should take care of this problem. Again, I am sorry for the inconvenience and disappointment on your first night at The Larkin Cottage.

Cute and cozy cottage

We had a great relaxing weekend at the Larkin cottage. The hot tub was our favorite feature of the property. The bed is super comfy and the cottage has everything you need for a great getaway.
