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.

Cozy and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The Larkin cottage was very comfortable and convenient, being that it’s only about a mile from the center of Mendocino.

The house was immaculate when we arrived, as we were greeted by a nice basket of goodies and wine. The cottage is just the right size for two for a short stay. The property itself is very nicely landscaped and clearly well taken care of. Other than the sound of the traffic from nearby highway 1, the area was very quiet......you feel like you are miles away from everything..

The only improvement I can recommend, which should be fairly easy to remedy, is to provide faster wireless internet. It was like watching grass grow, trying to look up restaurant and attraction information for the surrounding area. I don’t typically spend a lot of time on the internet while vacationing, but when you do need to find updated, detailed information about the area, it helps to be able to gather the data a little faster. Overall, not a huge deal, just a small annoyance,

My wife and I would definitely consider staying here again and recommending the cottage to our friends.

Owner's Response: Steve, thank you for your kind words. Yes, what makes Mendocino such a wonderful place....quiet, charm...can also be a headache at times. There are only 2 providers for internet services on the coast and they share the same lines! Satellite service is a third option but with all of the trees near my property not really very viable. Comcast....well they do not even offer high definition television service! But, I will replace the modem and see if that will speed things up a bit. See you on your return visit. ~Linda

It was very enjoyable

  • 4 of 5

Clean, comfy, nice trees and garden, and near town. Hot tub felt good but a little moody around the sides. Highway noise didn't interfere with sleep. Kitchen was useful.

Cozy Cottage By The Sea

  • 4 of 5

I loved staying at Larkin Cottage, in Mendocino! The proximity to the town was perfect and the charming French County feel was divine! The owner provided many dining ideas with local menus and the kitchen was fully stocked should you decide to cook instead. I will definitely return again!

Mendocino is a destination perfect for enjoying the Northern California Coast. The quaint village, reminiscent of a New England town, has many boutique shops, art galleries, and charming restaurants. Hiking at the Mendocino Headlands State Park is adjacent to the village. The Pt. Cabrillo Lighthouse and the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens are two popular attractions less than 15 minutes away.
