Overview

About the property

Adjacent to State Forest, Minutes to Mendocino and Ocean

This 700 square foot cottage is located on 5 secluded acres and was designed and built entirely by the owners. The cottage includes many special touches such as open beamed ceilings milled with local redwood. The cottage has tons of natural light. A wood pellet stove provides cozy heat and ambiance with the push of a button. There are also electric heaters in the bedroom and bathroom for additional warmth.

The cabin includes a private outdoor shower equipped with hot water, a private deck, an indoor claw foot bathtub and a compact yet full kitchen. The bedroom is outfitted with a brand new Leesa bed. There is also a twin bed which is perfect for kids. An additional futon with bedding is available to sleep a fourth person.

We are very kid friendly. Let us know and we will get out our trikes and cars for your child. We also have a very friendly dog but she stays on our side of the property most of the time.

We are also happy to provide recommendations for dining, beaches, trails or whatever else you are interested in seeing.

Jackson State Forest is our next door neighbor. There is a trail that leads from the property into the forest and we will leave you a map. Located ten minutes north of Mendocino and ten minutes south of Fort Bragg and five minutes from what we think is the best beach in the area.

We welcome smallish pets for an additional flat fee.

The cottage was beautiful and cozy. Very clean and everything was exactly as described. Their dog Molly was an angel and very friendly. 10/10 would stay again.

Comfortable, unique and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Quiet Cottage was amazing. It's located in a very quiet area, close to hiking trails. The outdoor showers and the claw foot tub were amazing!! We would highly recommend this vacation rental.

Lovely cabin in Mendocino

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent two nights here and absolutely loved it. The cabin is lovingly and beautifully built and stocked with everything you need and then some. Not a detail was missing. We spent one night out, but enjoyed a bbq dinner the second night and felt right at home. Super comfy bed, fluffy towels, WONDERFUL outdoor shower, beautiful scenery, and sweet owners including their dog Molly. If ever back in Mendocino, there is no doubt we'll stay here again. Thank you for a wonderful time!

Romantic cottage in the Trees

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to Jake and Melinda's cottage in the Mendocino area and once again we enjoyed the quiet and peacefulness of their property. The cottage is perfect for a couple with an efficient small kitchen,and a loft bedroom where you look out into the tree tops. We brought our border collie Bojangles again and resident Molly played and slept together on the large deck where we enjoyed coffee in the mornings and wine in the evenings. On our last night we had our two young granddaughters with us who played on the lawn, watched the stars at night and went on walks on the nearby forestry trails finding treasures. There is an additional bed in the loft area which we used for the girls but Melinda had also left floor mattresses and linens but the girls wanted to "sleep" in the trees.

Jake and Melinda and their children are gracious and very responsive to any questions or needs you may have. We highly recommend this cottage to explore or just relax and read a book.

Thank you Jake and Melinda we'll be back,

Fred, Eileen and "Bo"

The perfect place for hiking or biking enthusiasts!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous trails are right outside your door. And the climate here is perfect for hiking or biking. The cabin is very tastefully decorated. The bed is super comfy. The kitchen is very well stocked with basic necessities. We loved the deck where we could bask in the sun or slide over to be under the trees. Since we came here from a city, we were also very fond of the glorious quiet here. The owners were nearby but they were rarely seen in the week we were there. Nothing to complain about except that we had to leave!

Peaceful and quiet

  • 4 of 5

The guest house is quaint and very comfortable. We did not realize that the drive into the house was well off the beaten path, but it was worth it. The outdoor showers were a surprise and there was an indoor bath that was great as well. Outdoor furniture could be updated, it was wobbly and weathered. Overall it was very comfortable and pleasant, surrounded with forest setting. Owners are accommodating and offer assistance if needed. We would definitely stay here again.

Directly adjacent to Jackson State Forest with world class hiking and mountain bike trails that start on the property. Minutes to pristine beaches and both the village of Mendocino and the town Fort Bragg. The rocky coastline is perfect for abalone diving, kayaking through local sea caves, tide pooling, or just watching the sunset.
