We stayed here for 7 nights as part of our 3 week trip to California. It was the perfect place to relax and unwind away from staying in hotels. Both the cottage and the area were lovely. Linda, the owner, couldn’t have been more friendly or welcoming. It was a fantastic place to stay and visit the State Parks, the Redwood trees were amazing, lots of coastal walks, and even tried both sea and river kayaking. I would highly recommend staying here if ever in the area.
This cottage is well appointed beyond the basics (e.g., nice thick towels, bathrobes, good pillows/mattress, welcome gift basket) and offers privacy despite being on a property close to the main house. The design of the property is such that the front deck & hot tub of cottage face a back garden and high fence and the cottage has tall hedges trees surrounding it. If you are looking for a quiet, very clean, and meticulously maintained place to stay with a very responsive owner, this is it! The only downsides for someone could be the lack of ocean view and faint road noise audible from the front deck/hot tub only, but these were minimal issues for us. Would definitely rent again!
If you want a romantic getaway, or just a cozy solo one, this is your place! Country style cottage with matching decor and all the amenities: Sleep number bed, completely private outdoor hot tub, small but fully equipped kitchen, fireplace, porch, comfy living room, lots of fluffy towels and good linens. Everything was absolutely immaculate, so if you need clean, you got it. It's located just outside Mendocino proper -- a 2 minute drive or 10 min walk -- so convenient yet quiet and private. Many thoughtful touches such as a gift basket to welcome you with some treats. Met owner who was very helpful. A great deal -- a whole cottage for the price of a Mendo B&B room. Highly recommended!
Larkin cottage is a perfect place for two to spend an anniversary. We spent our 4th here and it is arguably the best place we've been to so far.Linda's attention to detail and thoughtfulness about everything you could need for a romantic weekend is aamazing. She thought of everything , even things we didn't need but it was nice to know those thing's where there. So,if you like cozy,comfortable, peaceful,beautiful surroundings this is the place for you.
p.s.she also included a very nice welcome basket filled with wonderful treats and goodies that we made full use of. Thank you linda can't wait to go back. Sincerely Mark & suzette D. In rancho Cordova.
Our stay at the Larkin Cottage was wonderful. The cottage was cozy and perfect for our 3 day stay. Close to gorgeous parks and good hikes...plus walking distance into Mendocino.
