Cottage, 1 Bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
I'm a 38 year resident of Fort Bragg- all that time practicing as a psychotherapist but now retired. My other occupation is tending my Japanese garden! I love walking on the virtually deserted dunes and stretch of Ten Mile beach. All my guests comment on the serene, peaceful feeling of the property and the attention to detail. I live in the main house on the property.
Lindsay purchased this Cottage in 2000

Beautiful home and quiet retreat
We had a very nice time at this home. We stayed two nights for our wedding anniversary. The home is lovely and I kept commenting how beautifully quiet the area was. The owner of the main house designed it and it truly is very lovely. The only thing I wish I had know about the home is how close it is to the main house. This is a guest house on a property. I think if the home had been another 20-30 feet away, it would have felt more private. The private gardens with pond are part of the main property shared by the owner. The home is filled with lovely windows that let beautiful light in but you can see directly into each other's houses. At one point the owner did come to the door, knocked twice and then just opened the door into the home. We were relaxing and I wasn't wearing pants and felt a little embarrassed by the intrusion. I understand this is her personal property but while we are there staying, I did expect a little more privacy in regards to access to the home. We were also greeted by her very wet muddy dog as soon as we got out of the car who jumped on us and got us muddy. We have a dog so we didn't mind too much but if you are someone who is afraid of dogs, please be aware that this dog roams the property. We were relaxing on the outdoor deck and the dog came up and was jumping up on us. After a while of ignoring the dog, it did leave but again, if you are fearful of dogs, I would be aware of this.
I'm sorry my puppy was a nuisance. She is still training and her manners definitely need work. With a few more months she'll be improved I'm sure.
I knocked twice and when I got no response I opened the door because I wasn't sure if you had left or not. I got the days mixed up on your departure. I apologize for the intrusion. My intention is to give guests maximum privacy- that's what I want as well..
Beautiful and relaxing
Such a peaceful place to stay. Secluded but close enough to enjoy lots of local food and fun. Lindsey is so sweet and takes great care of her zen cottage!
Idyllic quiet home and garden
We loved staying in Lindsay’s home. It was so peaceful and beautiful. A great way to enjoy nature with her garden and the nearby ocean. Would love to stay there again.
Property was great and peaceful and Lindsay was very accommodating specially when checking in since we arrived a lot later than the check in time. Dunes was amazing and pretty close to the property and the beach is a little further down which made it a good hike. Would definately comeback.
Lovely hide away
This was our second visit to Lindsey’s wonderful Japanese style house and garden. It is visually beautiful and emotionally restful. Lindsey checked in periodically to make sure everything was ok. And she has the most wonderful new puppy, Nova, who we got to enjoy too. We can’t wait to go back again to relax and watch Nova grow up. Thank you
