Adorable owner built cottage nestled in the forest adjacent to Jackson State Forest, providing endless trails for hiking and biking. The cozy interior beckons with site milled beams and many custom touches.

The space

This 700 square foot cottage is located on 5 secluded acres and was designed and built entirely by the owners. The cottage includes many special touches such as open beamed ceilings milled with local redwood. The cottage has tons of natural light. A wood pellet stove provides cozy heat and ambiance with the push of a button. There are also electric heaters in the bedroom and bathroom for additional warmth.

The cabin includes a private outdoor shower equipped with hot water, a private deck, an indoor claw foot bathtub and a compact yet full kitchen. The bedroom is outfitted with a brand new Leesa bed ((URL HIDDEN) There is also a twin bed which is perfect for kids. An additional futon with bedding is available to sleep a fourth person.

We are very kid friendly. Let us know and we will get out our trikes and cars for your child. We also have a very friendly dog but she stays on our side of the property most of the time.

We are also happy to provide recommendations for dining, beaches, trails or whatever else you are interested in seeing.

Jackson State Forest is our next door neighbor. There is a trail that leads from the property into the forest and we will leave you a map. Located ten minutes north of Mendocino and ten minutes south of Fort Bragg and five minutes from what we think is the best beach in the area.

We had a lovely weekend staying here. So peaceful and quiet, slept so well thanks to the tranquil forest surroundings and really comfy bed. Really lovely cosy interior, and the outdoor showers are the perfect start to the day underneath the trees. Melinda was great host, and while the family's home is next door, we were left to ourselves and you would think it's a private house. Thanks

This amazing cottage is comfortable, with all the amenities one needs. The showering under the redwoods was a super bonus, and if you want to bathe inside there’s a great big tub. We loved the quiet and out of the way location, but not too far from everything. Mendocino and FortBragg equal distance. Lots to do in the area.

A wonderful and private stay. Two adults and two young childern, it was the perfect size. Great location! Just far enough to feel secluded but only minutes to the coast. Will definitely keep in mind for future visits!

We loved the fact that the cottage was out in the beautiful country yet only a short drive from the beach, Mendocino and Fort Bragg

We had a nice stay at the cabin. We didn't realize how close the main house was, but it was not a problem. The outside shower is nice. The cabin is very comfortable.

We loved our stay at Melinda's cottage. It was clean, quiet and comfortable -- also great for cooking and relaxing on the porch. Great trails and tons of parks nearby too. We would definitely stay again and recommend highly!

This cottage is absolutely lovely - a beautiful space in a beautiful area. We loved the cottage design with all of the wood and windows, looking out to the gardens and trees. The place is beautifully decorated and impeccably clean. Beds were very comfortable, and we appreciated the quiet. Melinda and her family were perfect hosts, generous and kind. Our daughter loved that Molly came to visit once a day. We spent most of our three days here exploring beaches and parks in the area, and it was a great location. We strongly recommend this place!

Our family loves the outdoors. Hiking, Mountain Biking and just hanging out in the sun. We built our houses with tons of windows to bring the light and outside in as much as possible. We love sharing our passion for the outdoors with friends and guests.
