Guestbook comments from the owner

I can't tell you how much I enjoyed staying in your charming cottage-you have truly created a gem of a spot here!

I hope to make it back here at some point. In the meantime, I have already started recommending Rose Mary Cottage to my friends.

Thanks so much for everything!

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the cottage in December 2017 and we loved it. Quintessential Santa Barbara with an amazing patio with lights in the trees. Perfect for coffee in the morning or cocktails in the evening. The cottage is located walking distance to the restaurants and shops on State St.

Janet is the perfect hostess-we had fresh eggs, fresh flowers, well equipped kitchen and she has quite a bit of art that really makes the cottage special. We hope to return someday.

And amazing cottage! Janet thinks of everything to make your stay comfortable and welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed by Janet’s kindness and consideration. For example, she had fresh eggs, milk, bacon, bread and other breakfast items in the refrigerator for us. The decor of the cottage is beautiful and the setting makes you forget that you are in the middle of the city. We very much appreciated that we could bring our dog Cody with us. He also felt right at home and welcome! The location of the cottage is ideal for walking to museums, historical sites, shopping, and more. We definitely will choose to stay here again the next time we are in Santa Barbara. Thank you, Janet!

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

Janet was very welcoming and helpful as needed. We enjoyed a generous breakfast in the cottage, fresh coffee, tea, and everything we needed to feel cared for. It was a great retreat with a lot of greenery and tranquil vibes.

Charming, quiet and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying at Rose Mary Cottage. It is small but it has everything you need to enjoy your stay. Janet has thought of everything to make you happy and will provide your first breakfast with farm fresh eggs (delicious)and bacon or anything else you may desire. There will be blankets if you are cold and a ceiling fan if you are warm. The cottage is surrounded by trees and you can see the birds and hear them sing, the trees give wonderful shade. Two or three blocks will take you to State St. and many restaurants and bars, stores, concerts, whatever you like. If you wish you can make a meal or two in the well appointed kitchen which includes a dishwasher. She is a gracious and helpful lady and I have nothing but good memories of my stay there.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed a few weeks in this cozy , homey vintage cottage. It's convenient to downtown, the beach and the highway, and is in a secure compound with a very green garden setting.

The cottage has a unique eclectic style with collectibles and lots of art. It's very clean and has everything needed including a comfy bed and very well stocked kitchen.

Janet's hospitality is amazing. Not only does she provide fresh flowers, wine and a breakfast on arrival, she is incredibly thoughtful and goes out of her way to see to the comfort of her guests. She's happy to provide anything needed including good conversation.

I loved getting to know Janet, and I loved staying at Rose Mary cottage.

Rose Mary Cottage was perfect! The smell of the honeysuckle outside the bathroom window was heavenly! Absolutely no complaints! We can't wait to come back!
