About the property

Fisherman's cottage is one of the original beach cottages located in the quaint village of Salmon Creek ( 3 miles north of Bodega Bay). It has been lovingly restored both inside and out and tastefully infused with beach inspired furnishings. The Captain's room offers a plush queen size bed and access to a private porch where you can sit and enjoy views of the creek and ocean. The Crew's room is equipped with 2 twin beds with new mattresses as of July 2014. The Head consists of a walk in shower and pedestal sink atop a shell inlaid tile floor. The kitchen, living room and dining room layout are ideal for family gatherings and the openness of the main living spaces and the accessibility to the outdoors just makes the Fisherman's cottage so inviting. In addition it now offers a spectacular view of the Sonoma Coast from the newly constructed widow's walk observation deck. Start packing and come enjoy the Fisherman's cottage on Salmon Creek Beach!

Charmed by the cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (4 adults) enjoyed our stay at Fisherman's Cottage. The cottage's decorations and furnishings put us at ease for the final leg of our CA vacation. We enjoyed using the kayaks and spending some time on the beach. (The beach was windy and cool for those of you from the east coast.) The views of the water were also nice.

Fisherman's Cottage was terrific!! The house was clean & cozy & had everything we needed. The perfect spot for us. Close to the beach in a quiet community. Our daughter loved the dunes and we spent lots of time walking on the beach. Nearby Bodega Bay had markets & stores & restaurants too, This is a wonderful place we hope to return to!!!

Room for improvement

  • 2 of 5

Close to the beach and salmon Creek calm water for kid's to play or enjoy kayaking.

The house needs some updates; towels and bedding had holes and strings. The kitchen I found to be frustrating with very used pans that everything stuck to no matter what I tried. A total of 4 forks in the drawer. I wish I would have known, I would have brought my own salt/pepper, etc. Every beach house I've ever stayed at has the basics. I left my taco seasons for the next person.

I would not recommend for smaller kids. The house is lacking a bathtub and a way to block some of the light from the skylights to get the kiddos to bed.

I did pick up dog poo numerous times off the deck that appears to be shared although I nevery saw anyone else.

Owner's Response: Hi Christy, Thank you for your review. There are more than 4 forks. The house is set up for four people enough for two meals and has a dishwasher to clean those dishes and start again. I only found one hand towel that was frayed and had a hole in it, it is now a rag for cleaning. Please understand that this is a small beach cottage, even the stove and oven aren't full size. The pots and pans are a little dated, but usable. And we do have salt and pepper in the cubbard. I found 3 large containers of salt and 2 small containers of pepper along with various other spices. We provide coffee beans, sugar and creamer as well. I will work with the owner regarding the skylight. I've never had anyone mention the skylight bothering them. And the poo you were finding on the porch was no dog. It was a fox or a raccoon. We live surrounded by wildlife and they wander the neighborhood at night. Thank you again, I will address the items I am able to. Barbara

Had an amazing time with my grandsons. Loved that we were in walking distance to the beach and the creek. The boys want to make it a beginning of summer tradition

The cottage was everything I hoped it would be! The location and the views are amazing!

  • 3 of 5

We loved our stay at Fisherman's Cottage! The reasons for only 3 stars upon arrival the house was full of flies! Someone left the bathroom window open so my husband had to kill at least 50 flies. Opened two of the kitchen cupboards and some sort of droppings were all over! Dead flies all over made it feel unclean. Everything else was absolutely perfect. Clean and comfortable bed ,nice soft towels. They thought of everything for a wonderful beachy birthday weekend! We Would definitely return to Fisherman's Cottage again! 🎉�⚓️🦀�

Owner's Response: Hi Marty, Thank you for your review. I wish you would of called me and let me know what was going on, I would of done my best to amend the problem. It turned out the people after you, also had the same issue so we had to bug bomb the house and then go in and literally clean everything. I am truly sorry this happened. I do hope you come back again and I will make it up to you. Thanks again, Barbara

Salmon Creek Beach, a beautiful sandy beach. Fisherman's cottage is just a short walk away. Great for kids to play on the sand dunes or build sand castles. Tuck yourself in the dunes, relax and enjoy the sounds of the surf. Feel free to walk or jog the 4 mile stretch of beach. If your a stand up paddler you can paddle up Salmon Creek beach and enjoy what nature has provided for your viewing pleasure!
