The Rose Cottage is located in Inglenook on several acres, just 10 minutes north of Fort Bragg in a unique microclimate with very little fog, tucked behind the MacKerricher dunes. Access to the dunes and MacKerricher State Beach is located at the end of our private lane.

The Rose Cottage was better than appears in the pictures, delightfully old and charming, yet very clean and comfortable. The bed was firm, yet soft, the linens fresh and crisp. Tenaya and Ed have provided every little comfort one could think of in this well stocked cabin. We especially loved the home made 10 Mile Plum jam. This quiet and serene slice of heaven sits in a secluded garden. The Dune Gardens are just beautiful, like living in a corner of the Mendocino Botanical Gardens, with fruit trees, swaths of blooming plants and an incredible array of colors and textures, and garden art. The dune walk to the beach was a great hike, and we loved our whole experience. We hope to make a return visit!
We had such an amazing time at Tenaya's Cottage! She gave us a wonderful, informative tour of her place upon arrival. There were fresh organic berries, jam, and coffee in the fridge--a very nice touch. The cottage was clean, cozy, and perfect for our weekend getaway. A short walk to the dunes, and plenty of beautiful places to walk and bike around. The ambiance was perfect! I highly recommend a stay at Tenaya's Rose Cottage. It's peaceful, beautiful, and romantic.
We had a very nice stay at Rose Cottage and were sad to leave. The garden was wonderful, hanging out on the deck and watching the birds in the morning was great. We were surprised that we were close enough to hear the ocean roaring in the background too.
Rose Cottage is a wonderful retreat: comfortable, warm, peaceful, and stocked with everything one needs. The 10 mile plum jam was fantastic!
Tenaya, thank you for your warmth and hospitality!
Tenaya was more than hospitable and kind providing muffins, coffee and fresh berries when we arrived. Her garden and cottage was paradise!
We highly recommend! My husband and I loved the peacefulness and privacy this property offers. The muffins and homemade jam were delicious. The bonus was how close the cottage is to the beach. If you want a cozy carefree weekend this place is the spot!
