This little house overlooking Trinidad Bay is perfect for exploring the North Coast and relaxing in a distraction-free neighborhood. The house has a wall heater, space heaters and wood heat, a porch to stare at the Big Blue, all the comforts and amenities, cozy accommodations all around. Whether you want to hike the nearby trails, charter a fishing trip, read several books, or just enjoy a peaceful getaway, this house will likely have what you need. One bed in the bedroom, 1 futon couch in the Chart Room. Owner lives on property, in separate unit, which is good if you need anything during your stay. We currently do not offer WiFi and while this may impact your decision to stay with us, we have had several guests say they appreciated this piece. WiFi is available at the nearby coffee shop if it is something you need while traveling. We also recently went 100% solar so if you appreciate having minimal impact, this is a great benefit. We really hope you will consider us and make great little get-away, even greater by staying at Pilot Rock Cottage.

About Steve Ladwig
My wife Jen and I had always dreamed of being able to live in Trinidad and then it finally happened. We both work at Humboldt State and love to get outside as much as possible in Humboldt County. We live on this property and know this community and have been in this part of California for 30 years. I am originally from Carlsbad, CA and Jen is from Junction City, CA. I came to Humboldt for the small town experience and Jen came to the university for big city experience.
Steve Ladwig purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Steve Ladwig chose Trinidad
If you want to be in the heart of a small fishing village and be able to walk to the store, to the beach, or drive to any number of attractions, this is a great home base. The neighborhood is quiet, the neighbors are quiet and friendly, and you can do it all, or do nothing at all, and still feel refreshed from your time in Trinidad.
What makes this Cottage unique
This cottage has something to offer all year round with great views of the bay from the front room, a cozy wood stove, very comfortable accommodations, a nice yard to hang out in, and a handful of restaurants, wineries, art galleries, and a museum/library. The house is small and really geared for a couple although it can handle up to four people if you are already accustomed to living in close quarters.

Pilot Rock Cottage is THE Place to Stay in Trinidad!
This is the best place we've stayed in Trinidad!
The owners, Jen and Steve, are friendly, laid-back, and give you your privacy. The cottage is clean, cute, and has a nice view of Trinidad Bay. 10-minute walk to the beach and 5-minute-or -ess walk to any restaurant, Moonstone Winery, or Murphy's. The comfortable bed, wood stove, and fully-appointed kitchen make it easy to stay in if you don't feel like going out. Definitely worth the price for a relaxed getaway on the coast. Slept better here than I have in the last 10 years.
Neat and Clean Little Bungalow with everything that you need while your away.
This is a very cute little Bungalow with a nice lay out and a view exactly as it shows. It's location is really nice as good restaurants and the ocean are within walking distance. Even though it is close to restaurants it is also very quiet. The owners have included everything that you might need while your away and everything was very clean. We will be back :)
Trinidad is a lovely place to stay and explore.
The cottage was warm and comfortable. We loved staying here for the Kinetic Championship. Lovely!
A guidebook to local attractions will be available in the cottage when you arrive
