Reviewer Comments:

A well appointed cute cottage with good taste in decor. The owners were helpful if needed but not invasive, and we had few needs. We would have appreciated recommendations on eating places closer to the site. There is a beautiful entry with a pool stocked with beautiful fish, lovely plants and a pleasant place to relax. We were very happy there.

Reviewer Comments:

This rental is a gem! Very, very comfortable, clean, nicely decorated, with a great kitchen, even a Keurig! My hosts were really sweet people who clearly enjoy having company. Being in Fortuna made it very central to what I wanted to see and do in terms of photos, shopping and shipping, and general sightseeing.

This cottage is absolutely perfect for a couple. We enjoyed the surrounding area so much, as well. Lots of hikes in the big trees and coming home to our own little peaceful, quiet cabin. We were able to save money by cooking our own breakfast and having everything we need. Highly recommend staying here for a romantic get away! Beautifully decorated and well stocked!

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed in this cottage on our visit to Redwood National Park. The cottage is located in a convenient location to the NP, and Ferndale. The unit was very clean and quaint. The unit was stocked with everything we needed for a short stay, they even provided coffee and tea for the Kuerig. The outside landscaping and koi pond were lovely. We we out site-seeing and really didn't get to enjoy the outside like I would have wished. The cottage is located close to two permanent residents, and you were able to hear some of their noise. Also, there is a two night minimum, and since we were there to visit the NP we had to backtrack to get back to our cottage. A one night stay would have been more helpful for our purposes. The owner lives next door and they were very friendly and made helpful recommendations. They even had the lights on for us since we arrived after dark. I would recommend Cottage Americana if you need a place to stay in the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for leaving a review of Cottage Americana! The owners do indeed live next door, and are very friendly and accommodating as well as unobtrusive. The koi fish pond is wonderful, and there is seating so you can sit and enjoy the yard as well as the koi. Most of our rentals are two night minimum. We're happy to hear you were able to explore the surrounding areas, and would love to have you back again at Cottage Americana, next time you find yourself on the North Coast!

Reviewer Comments:

This is the first time we've used this type of lodging, and we were pleasantly surprised. Reservations easy to make online. Information about the rental and nearby amenities were provided well in advance. Centrally located to downtown and in walking distance of banks, park, and restaurants. Only disappointment was no regular TV - must have an internet account (Netflix/Amazon) to use it. However, I understand that cable/satellite billing would be cost prohibitive when unit isn't rented. However, we were busy enough with visiting friends in the area and enjoyed quiet time reading and conversing. Excellent wi-fi network. Glad we were there when the high school was closed for the summer since unit is directly across the street.

We loved staying at Cottage Americana. It was so charming in decor and the location was within easy walking distance to the town. The Koi Pond was a delight and so was the garden.
