Welcome to our cozy cottage in the coastal Mendocino redwoods, the perfect place for a personal retreat or private getaway.

Mendocino is a romantic and historic village perched along the cliffs of northern California, surrounded by Big River Bay and the Pacific Ocean. We are just a seven minute drive east of Mendocino village, uniquely situated on the ridge above Big River in a magnificent redwood forest in the sun-belt, surrounded by Jackson State Forest and Big River State Park.

In an easygoing and comfortable atmosphere, guests can relax in the fresh air, take walks in the forest, view sunset skies through the majestic redwoods, and enjoy reading, writing, artwork, and board games.
