Great place to hang your hat for a long weekend on the Mendocino Coast. The cottages are spacious and can sleep up to four, there is a kitchen where you can cook. We used it for breakfasts and lunches, as well as using the fridge to chill our wines. The views from the cottages are to die for.

We came for two nights and will definitely book longer next time. Our unit (Humbolt) was sparkling clean, spacious and had a spectacular view. We brought food that was already prepared so we didn’t really use the kitchen. The bed was super comfortable and the front porch is perfect for reading, drinking wine and enjoying the amazing ocean views. Kate made us feel so welcome and was always available for questions or concerns. You can see how much they’re focused on safety with contactless check in, as well as masks, sanitizer and spray in the room. So happy we booked and look forward to a return visit soon!

We stayed four nights in the Gualala Cottage, at Little River Cove, at a cost of just under $1,000.00. I would like to address the discrepanies in the Room Details listed for this particular cottage. One good point is the view, on the down side is the overall condition, which is very tired. The full 'gourmet kitchen' contained a Black & Decker toaster oven which took about 10 mins. to toast a piece of bread. The range seemed adequate, although we didn't utilize. The kitched was far from gourmet, from my experience. The 'designer Queen bed' appeared to be a Full size and the mattress was not comfortable at all and appeared to need replacing. The 'deluxe rainfall showerhead' was an old Waterpik that leaked when turned on. The furniture was old and damaged. There was also a hole in the wall of the bathroom. I would say that if you have a dog, this might be the place for you, but I, myself, would not stay in this kennel again.

As a Californian, I love our Northern California coast! I typically stay in vacation rentals, but discovered the Cottages during research. To be honest I spent a lot of time in this area in my past and couldn't wait to return with my dog. I'll start by complementing the staff. This is not a big lodge like the place next door. I chose the Dylan Cottage and I wasn't disappointed. The cottage with the best view would probably be "Elk," but I loved my cottage, so did Rocco. Although they do not have a restaurant onsite, it doesn't matter. Cottages are located 2 miles south of Mendocino and there are two great restaurants next door and across the street (Little River Inn and Wilde Fish) where I ordered food to go because I didn't want to meet my furry guy at home and hotels and rentals frown on that. Weather was in the 70's the whole time. Loved Cottages for the small personal feel. My bed was sooo comfy!

This was our second time here and we had another wonderful weekend. Humboldt cottage was really our favorite, the bed is so comfortable and the view from the front porch is amazing. This property is very dog friendly, they have a huge lawn in the middle of the cottages and really make an effort to make your visit with your dogs comfortable. We really recommend this place and will certainly be back the next time we are in the area. Be sure to visit their other property for breakfast, you can even bring your dog into the restaurant!
