Mendocino, Mendocino County, California
Caspar Cottage is a very charming, private, quiet, nicely and newly furnished cottage that my husband and I built on our five private acres near the end of a quiet road, just three miles up the ridge from the ocean and ten minutes from Mendocino or Fort Bragg. It's a perfect place for a honeymoon, anniversary, special occasion or quiet retreat. It has a comfortable queen bed with down comforter and nice linens, new sleeper sofa, fully equipped kitchen, gas BBQ and picnic table with string lights above for the evenings, lovely custom cabinetry and a beautiful marble tiled bathroom with a jet tub and large shower. The cottage is very comfortable and nicely appointed with original art. Flames from an enameled European propane stove bring the warmth and coziness of a fire with the convenience of a thermostat. There is a radio CD stereo w... Read more

I stayed at this cottage with my mother for a Mother's Day-My Birthday retreat. This place is fantastic. We had the perfect hosts and the cabin is well stocked with dishes, pans, silverware, robes, plenty of towels, soap, etc and even fresh flowers from the garden! Perfect place for a writer's retreat, best friends getaway, mother daughter weekend, or a...

My wife & I stayed at the Caspar Cottage for 8 days in late May, and couldn't be happier with the choice. Having stayed at different rentals over the years, sometimes what a picture shows, or is described...is different when you get there. CASPAR COTTAGE WE MUST SAY WAS BETTER, BEYOND OUR EXPECTATIONS. Diane was teriffic in getting back to...

About the neighborhood
Caspar Cottage is located near the end of a quiet road, at the eastern edge of the Russian Gulch State Park and across the road from Jackson State Forest. From the cottage you can walk down through a Redwood canyon to the 30 foot waterfall in the park. We are just five minutes from the beach and ten minutes from the village of Mendocino or Fort Bragg. On our five private acres we built the cottage and also our home and my husband's one man woodworking shop which are nearby, but obscured by trees and a garden. The cottage is very private. It sits in the sun and is surrounded on the north side by trees. The dark night sky provides views to the stars of the Milky Way and the full moon. You'll like it!

How to get there
<BR>Directions from San Francisco: We are about 3 hours from the Golden Gate Bridge if you take Highway 101 North to Cloverdale and go West on Highway 128 which is a beautiful, but windy road that goes over a mountain and through the hills, through Boonville, past many small picturesque wineries in the Anderson Valley, and though a Redwood forest before reaching the coast and going North on Highway 1 to Mendocino. <BR>Alternately, you could take Highway 101 North to Highway 116 West and then 12 West to the coast at Bodega Bay, and up the coast to Mendocino from there. It takes maybe an hour longer, but it is a spectacular drive, especially on a clear day. <BR>
