Beautiful living space in our detached garage, 100 ft. from our main house. We have 2 large dogs, so we love other animal lovers! We are 4 miles north of the village of Mendocino, set within a mixed Redwood forest, pasture and seasonal stream. We pay an 11% hotel tax to Mendocino County, so we'll let you know how much it is, then cash is best when you arrive. One time $25/dog fee per dog. Dogs must always be on leash and never left alone. Please leave very anxious or aggressive dogs at home.
“Catherine & Mark are wonderful hosts, who will give you plenty of space but are always there when you need them. The place is in a wonderful location surrounded by tall redwoods, yet sunny enough to sit outside. It is away from everything yet less than 10 minute drive to either Mendocino or Fort Bragg. Catherine responded to all my emails and questions almost immediately. We stayed in the cottage next to their home and it was a perfect size. Because of COVID19 we ended up eating in more than usual and all the amenities were there. If you need Wifi, the signal was exceptionally strong and then there were all the blackberries you can eat outside. Finally, if you love animals, the two Leonbergers are the friendliest dogs you will ever meet. I can wholeheartedly recommend Catherine's place, it's were we would stay if we come back to this area.”
Unplug, unwind, restore your senses at Clara's Cottage, a romantic, private, quiet garden retreat on the spectacular Mendocino Coast.
“Clara's cottage was the perfect getaway for me and my husband to celebrate our first wedding anniversary during this pandemic. Tenaya was very nice and welcoming. We wore masks when we met her and she has protocols in place to ensure that the cottage is clean. Tenaya's property is very beautiful. We enjoyed the blackberries we picked from her garden. Her place is close enough to fort Bragg but also secluded enough. It was clean and peaceful. We used the charcoal BBQ for our meals and also laid out our picnic blanket on the grass by the cottage. Tenaya's recommendations were great. We were the only ones in the redwood forest and the sand dunes when we went. We really needed this getaway and glad that we found Tenaya's place. Thank you Tenaya! We definitely would love to go back.”

“We stayed for 2 nts over Labor Weekend (2020). John's place was impeccably neat and clean and upon check-in John went over his additional cleaning steps; just walking about we felt confident that the place met our concerns on safety during CV. For folks seeking a tranquil indoor space; John's studio is great; with artistic elements within a very well thought out and open space. For those seeking outdoor serenity; manicured lawns among towering redwood "families" gives a sense of balance and ancient calm. The town of Fort Bragg has many amenities that were all open. Face coverings were the norm. The beaches (especially Pudding Beach just down the street) were inviting and the downtown bustling. The best was the cool temperatures and clean air; a special and unique sanctuary during a very hot and smokey Labor Weekend in Northern Cal.”
