Beautiful little basecamp for visiting gorgeous beaches that surrounded it and the Redwoods nearby. Everything you need for your stay is provided. The kitchen is well stocked and perfect when you need to cook at home during these Covid times.

we really had a great time there. Highly recommend this place.
Kathryn M. Mar 2020
The house was beautiful and comfortable. From the hot tub we had an amazing view of the ocean. There was peacocks that roamed around during the day and the neighbor had ostriches. Overall, 5 stars from us!
Heather M. Mar 2020
This place is just as described. Clean and tidy! The location is perfect for getting out to see all the beauties of the area. The redwoods and beaches are spectacular. Would definately recommend this to all! Thank you for sharing your property with us. We loved it!

My boyfriend and I enjoyed our stay at the Alder Cottage. Despite the cold and rainy weather, we were able to explore the Redwoods, coast, and Fern Canyon, and came home to warm up in the hot tub. All of the must-see attractions on our list were an easy drive from the cottage. We loved waking up to the sound of the sea lions, drinking coffee while watching the peacocks, and falling asleep to the sound of the ocean. We look forward to staying at the cottage again!

This is the most charming and relaxing property we have ever rented. Beautiful view, open, immaculately clean and bright. Absolutely loved it and will return. In fact we didn't want to leave.

Beautiful, Serene, Tranquil rental property, and perfect for our honeymoon. We had an amazing time and the little house was beautiful. The owner was next door and greeted us and told us about a dolphin wood sculpture that was built on the property and where we can sit to see the water better , and food suggestions while we were there as well. He was so nice and the lady on the phone calling me back when we got lost the first night was the nicest especially it being so late. So thank you for everything:)

The alder cottage was beautiful and perfect in every way for our recent honeymoon! Waking up to the sea lions barking was awesome! We enjoyed the hot tub and the breath taking views.

We loved our stay at Alder Cottage! The house was the perfect size for 2 people and was the cleanest vacation rental we have ever been to. We had everything we needed. A very nice kitchen and bathroom, plenty of towels, dishes, comfortable bed, and even binoculars for spotting whales. Great location for daily hiking trips to Prairie Creek.

Alder cottage was the perfect place to stay to stay for our redwood vacation. The cottage is very clean, well appointed, and in a great location. We were able to see redwoods, as well as enjoy local beaches. The cottage was a perfect size for our family of three and the ocean view is spectacular! Only issue we had was neighbors loud peacocks the first night. Hope to visit again.

We loved this place. It looks like it was remodeled yesterday. Everything is pristine. We used it as a base to explore Redwood National Park. Make sure you go into Trinidad and look around. Very cute town with fantastic food and ice cream at the Lighthouse Grill! Make sure, however, that you don't get confused by the street house numbers as we did. Pull down the driveway to the right of the wood fence and there you will find your rental. it is so close to the ocean you can hear the sea lions!

We came to Trinidad for our 25th Anniversary to celebrate by visiting the Redwoods. This little cottage is nestled near several parks and only about an hour from Avenue of the Giants. The cottage kitchen is well equipped. The bed is a bit firm but still comfortable. The living area is nice but we didn't spend a lot of time here due to being out in the trails and visiting the surrounding areas. Don't be surprised when you see peacocks at the cottage. We had 6 visit us during our stay. I highly recommend this cottage. It was very comfortable and close to many parks and scenic areas.
My only cautions are: 1. The hill down to the overlook is pretty steep. 2. Laundry is about 15-20 miles away. 3. The road from the cottage to Trinidad is very rough. I'd opt for Hwy 101 instead. 4. Murphy's Market is closest grocery store. I recommend the twice baked potatoes you have to bake from the deli. Delicious.
I highly recommend this little cottage for anyone looking to stay near the redwoods national and state parks.

We enjoyed our stay in Northern Calf and the eclectic town of Trinidad. We enjoyed tranquil nights in the cabin and adventure in the Redwood Parks. The cabin was fantastic. The staff responded to a request on Mothers Day. The cabin was clean, comfortable and had all we needed. We were delighted with a visit from 6 peacocks.

Very clean, quiet, lovely location in a well designed and appointed one-bed cabin. Cozy and charming. Easy access to Trinidad, Arcata and the Redwood National Forest.
. Apr 2019
It was very clean with nice finishes. It ended up being in the middle of everything we wanted to do on our trip (Redwoods and shopping), but definitely requires a bit of a drive to Arcata that has more shops and bars. The only thing that was a little disappointing is there is a house directly in front that obstructs the view. When looking at the birds eye view, I thought we were the house closest to the water, but that was my mistake. Overall, I loved the place and would definitely stay there again.

Great size for the two of us. Plenty of natural light. The fees could be clearer.
Some mold on north side windows that could be replaced. Otherwise clean and Overall a good experience.

Absolutely a gem!! Perfectly appointed and in a great location. Such attention to detail. I'd move in permanently if I could.

The cottage was delightful. Great furnishings and décor. Nice set up with fold-out couch; big table, big enough kitchen - with high quality pots/pans and dinnerware. Well-designed bathroom with door leading to directly to bedroom as well a door off the kitchen. Cool barn door for bedroom 'door'. Gorgeous bedroom with beams across a cathedral ceiling and comfortable king-size bed and nice bedding. We used the grill twice and enjoyed the patio as we listened to the sea lions bark. We walked down to the chairs near the edge of the property to enjoy a beautiful sunset one night. I would have given this location 5 stars but the neighbor's dogs did bark at us a lot when we were anywhere near them but they looked friendly enough. Eventually, the humans came out and quieted the dogs down. Great instructions, directions, and little extras like the wonderful cookies and coffee. It worked out very well for us. We did have some trouble with the kitchen lighting - very dark even with all the lights on; and we couldn't find an outside light switch. However, I probably should have called the mgmt. team about the outside light - my fault that I didn't; just too busy enjoying everything else.

The photos don't do the Alder Cottage justice - it's very well appointed and we felt very welcomed. We loved our stay and really appreciated the thoughtful goodies from local sources.
The bed was very comfortable and there were plentiful towels, linens, throws, etc. Every detail was very well thought out.

We found this cottage to be clean, roomy, and well-appointed. Everything was in good working order. The patio area outside was lovely. The setting is very nice and the location is great for touring the area.

We had a delightful stay at Alder Cottage. The location was superb for what we wanted to experience. The place was very clean, had all the appropriate amenities. The bed was comfortable and having a well appointed kitchen was perfect for us. The communication was perfect. We loved sitting out at sunset watching the whales and sea lions. We also really enjoyed walking through the state park. I would recommend this property to everyone.

Our rental was even better than expected. It was easy to find and nicely decorated with modern fixtures and appliances. The views of the ocean were amazing!
. Aug 2018
The location was phenomenal. The most beautiful sunset I've seen in years. The location was nicely between seeing Fern Canyon, Red National Park Herds of Elk to the north. The beautiful beaches of Trinidad, Moonstone and Clam Beach to the south. Not to forget easy access to fine dining.
The cabin was outstanding. Detailed carpentry. Decor was very inviting. The bed was wonderful. We would stay again in a heartbeat.
The service we received from the management company was efficient and courteous.
