Rose Cottage was exactly what we were looking for. Tenaya was extremely helpful providing recommendations on hikes, places to eat and directions. Not only was she very helpful but also respected our privacy when we wanted it. The cottage itself was fantastic - right by the dunes and a beach we had to ourselves. There was also tons of wildlife (birds and bunnies) right off our deck as we enjoyed our breakfast. She even made us homemade jam and muffins!
The firepit at night and the help yourself vegetable garden were unexpected bonuses!
I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing retreat away from a busy life.
The rose cottage was the perfect get away place for a romantic week end. North California as a whole is really one of the most beautiful place I have been so far and I'd definitely recommend the Dunes Garden as a starting point.
The cottage in itself is well-equipped, well-designed and with a beautiful garden. Tenaya was welcoming and attentive. She even left home-made plum jam for us!
I'll definitely keep the adress and come back
We had the most wonderful time staying at Rose Cottage. Tenaya has perfected the art of hosting -- we received a warm welcome and helpful guidance on where to explore. The cottage is cozy and invited conversation and reflection.
Photos don't do the sand dunes and local beach justice, so you'll have to go and see them for yourselves! We are already planning a return visit to Dune Gardens with friends and family. It's a magical place.
My daughter and I spent two peaceful and glorious days at Tenaya's perfectly appointed cottage. Her love, care and attention to detail was obvious at every turn. We will be back.
We had an absolutely wonderful stay in the Rose Cottage. Tenaya was a gracious, attentive host who clearly cares deeply about your experience in the cottage and the area. The cottage is smartly decorated and furnished. We especially liked the wood-burning stove (for heat) and gas stove (for cooking). The property is beautiful and we enjoyed our conversations with Tenaya. Actually, everything was just right. We'll be back!
The Rose Cottage was incredible. Tenaya made us feel at home by leaving us goodies in the fridge when we got there. The place had everything we needed for an amazing time. The best part is the location. Those sand dunes are amazing and you have the beach to yourself.
We had an amazing time at Rose Cottage, and didn't want to leave to go back to work after the weekend was over! The cottage is very cozy and inviting. It's clear that Tenaya has invested a lot of labor and love into the cottage. We appreciated the comfortable bed, great wood stove for heat, spacious interior, and well-stocked kitchen. Tenaya provided tasty homemade jam, scones, and applesauce. We spent a lot of time on the deck enjoying the beautiful garden -- watching the birds congregate at the bird feeders during the morning, and watching the stars on a clear night. Tenaya also gave us great suggestions for walks through the dunes and up the coast to visit the local harbor seals on the headlands. We'd definitely stay again on our next visit to Fort Bragg.
