Cottage w/ deck & wood stove - walk to the ocean, beach, & bluffs!

Find a timeless coastal retreat at this three-bedroom Fort Bragg cottage, a welcoming family home with a sun-splashed deck, a beautiful tree-lined property, and wonderful access to nearby towns, beaches, and ocean bluffs.

This quaint home sits on an open, grassy property, right on the edge of lush woodlands and the eastern reaches of MacKerricher State Park. Head four miles south into downtown Fort Bragg to hop on board the Skunk Train or marvel at the treasures on Glass Beach, spend afternoons exploring the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens seven miles south, and take short walks down to MacKerricher's ocean bluffs to look for passing whales and watch spectacular sunsets.

With its wood floors, large windows, and thoughtful, comfortable furnishings, this cheerful cottage is full of bucolic charm. Spend foggy mornings reading on the plush sectional sofa, cozying up by the wood-burning stove (logs are even provided), and flipping pancakes in the full country kitchen with natural wood cabinetry, standard appliances, and a dishwasher.

Take daily excursions to the artsy village of Mendocino (14 miles south) and other breathtaking stretches of California Highway 1, and return home to unwind in the sunshine on the deck. Set the dining room table or the patio table for dinner, and linger outside with a bottle of wine to watch the stars fill the night sky. Back inside, you'll have a flatscreen TV with cable and a DVD player, as well as free WiFi throughout, to bring the evening to a relaxing close.

Very nice home and a great location. I would definitely recommend, so close to the beach and so quiet and peaceful.
Stephanie L. Jul 2020
We especially loved the daily deer visits through the yard. Very quite street. It’s a quick walk to access a great spot on the beach. Very cute and cozy home. We would rent again. Thank you.

We enjoyed another great stay at this property! It was comfortable and has great proximity to the ocean. Bring your bikes! We were glad that we did this time!

Nice House, clean, and well kept. The only reason the house did not get a 5 was because of a key code change issue (which was corrected quickly), and there were only 3 hangers in the house.

loved the easy access to beautiful 10 mile Beach, and loved the outside shower on the back deck, which was really private. The fire place needed some cleaning but the outside fire pit made due. Had a wonderful time!
Katherine R. Jul 2019
Comfortable home for our 4-person family that is very close to the beach.

This house is in a very peaceful place. There's no noise except the birds and you can't even see another house from it. It was clean and provided the basic amenities we needed.
Denise C. Apr 2019
Walking distance to the ocean and walking paths. Well appointed kitchen and laundry. Quiet bedrooms.
Lauren S. Feb 2019
This house is perfect for a beach vacation! Cute, cozy, and oh so close to the beach. We went in winter, and the wood stove helped make it a cozy time. We absolutely loved our stay here, with my husband and four year old son. The beds were comfortable and everything was super clean.
Tiffany T. Feb 2019
The location is great! It was wonderful to be able to walk to the beach. It was also nice for everyone in our party (2 parents and 2 kids) to have their own space. We would definitely return to this property.
Michael A. Feb 2019
We had a great relaxing time. A couple of the beds were hard, but otherwise great!!!!

Spent five days at this comfortable little house to start the New Year.
The outdoor shower is Fantastic. Old time porcelain ceramic handles, sweated copper pipe, and colorful tile backsplash. It has three heads, one above the head like all other showers and two heads shoulder high. Very very nice!
Wife and I got there first and checked out all the beds.
We knew we would take the king with the bathroom, we paid the rental fee. But hey, why not check out the other two.
One is queen very soft, the lady who slept in it loved it.
The other queen has a South facing big window to let the Sun on the bed. Very nice touch in January.
Traffic past the house is sparse and slow moving.
Ocean is about the length of a football field away.
Dark blue on shutters and chairs is a nice touch.
Interior is comfortable and seems bigger than you think it would.
Close to horse rental and Fort Bragg.
Would happily rent it again.

Having the place clean when we got there and having all the linens provided made all the difference for our situation. We have stayed there before so were familiar with the house and what is available on the coast. It was just what we needed.
Jeff L B. Oct 2018
My wife & I stayed here for 7 nights mid-Oct 2018, Great location, beautiful beaches, quiet & cozy for the entire stay. Nice touches on the inside & out, especially the outdoor shower and horseshoe pit. We would stay here again. Loved it.
Karen S. Sep 2018
The location was great. So easy to get to the beach and a nice path along the beach. Hope to come back again when I can spend more time exploring!
Cynthia M. Aug 2018
Very comfortable home.
Cynthia G. Jul 2018
This is a cozy cottage by the sea; easy walking distance to the beach and amazingly quiet and peaceful at night. It was a wonderful getaway.
David K. Jul 2018
We loved the house. It has a very good home feeling to the house. the house is very spacious for our group. Kitchen was a little small and the shower is hard for a tall man over 6 feet. We would definitely stay again. Very close to the beach less than a five minute walk.
Ash R. Jul 2018
We had a great time. There few minor quirks, if fixed, this could be a fantastic place to visit. It is very short walk to the beach.
Since I am over six feet tall, it was little difficult to take shower is the master bath. Shower stall is meant for person closer to 5 feet. Carpet should really be taken out, instead owner should put hardwood floors. We loved our stay here and would love to visit again.
Manager response:
We appreciate these comments. The showers are standard size and function perfectly, and the carpet is a nice berber carpet. Thank you!
Phyllis H. Jun 2018
The house was clean and comfortable and the kitchen well equipped.

Mostly, we loved that you could walk to the beach!
Julie T. Jun 2018
I spent 5 days with my husband here and it was fabulous. Sweet quiet house close to the water. I would go back again. In a minute. Only complaint is that the showers are small.
Debi G. May 2018
This home was near to town and within walking distance to a lovely path along the beach. The area was very quiet and peaceful. Amenities and styling were a little dated with a slight musty smell. Internet worked well. A small first aid kit would have been helpful (bandaids and antiseptic cream.
