Unplug, unwind, restore your senses at Rose Cottage - a romantic, private, quiet garden cottage retreat on the spectacular Mendocino coast.

The space

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 sun-lit cottage is situated in a serene landscaped garden setting with expansive deck, gas bbq & firepit. The studio cottage accommodates 2 with a firm queen-size bed, bath with tub/shower combo & small, well-equipped kitchen facility. Wood heat with firewood supplied.

Owners reside on the property, greet guests personally and enjoy making recommendations for restaurants, activities, hikes, etc. There are abundant opportunities for hiking, bird-watching and beach-combing nearby. The cottage is equipped with excellent hiking and bicycling guidebooks.

The cottage has no TV, phone or internet. Cell phone reception is spotty on the coast; internet cafes are located in town. NO PETS, NO SMOKING allowed. Nightly rates include 11% county bed tax. Guests are expected to have a high regard for personal property and leave the cottage in the condition it was found - there is no additional cleaning fee. There is a refundable security deposit. Check-in time is 3pm - 10pm; check-out time is 11am.

Everything about Tenaya, the Rose Cottage, and our stay there was absolutely magical. She was a gracious and thoughtful host, acomodating our late arrival and providing detailed instructions about the best ways to explore the nearby dunes. The place was impeccably clean and the kitchen well-stocked, and the cottage had lots of fun reading material and puzzles for lazy afternoons. Tenaya also left lots of regional brochures and magazines so we could find out local goings-on, since there is no wifi or cell service inside. I highly recommend the Rise Cottage and hope to return soon!

Tenaya is an amazing hostess and went above and beyond to make sure we were well taken care of while there. She left fresh strawberries, homemade jam, fresh ground coffee, and all were the epitome of perfection. While the beautiful online photos drew us in, the relatively remote location, proximity to the ocean, spectacularly landscaped garden, and quaint interior surpassed all expectation. The cottage is tucked between a corridor of trees and the sand dunes that kiss the Pacific Ocean, and we could hear the waves from the deck. This is a place for those who want to get away from it all; no television, no internet, and no wifi . . . nothing but peace, quiet, and beautiful scenery. Tenaya has a bookcase full of nature books, hiking trails, 101 things to do and see in Mendocino County, brochures with local points of interest, and a list of eateries. We felt at home and look forward to a return visit.

What a peaceful and beautiful place! This is the place to unplug from life and reset. There is no wifi or cell reception and it's great!! We got to cook, play games, and be with ourselves and nature. Tenaya was a wonderful host giving us accurate and fun info about the dunes and the beach. Her dog Dora and cat Gigi were so sweet friendly. Dora came by every day to say hello. Tenaya made us yummy muffins and jam. What a treat! We would have loved to spend a week there. Enjoy and visit!

The Rose Cottage was absolute gem. It was close enough to town, but far away enough to feel like you are in a secret little garden. Tenaya was very welcoming and friendly. She gave us a lot of helpful information. I would definitely stay again Wonderful experience

What a wonderful stay!! We loved the cottage and thought the pictures don't do it justice. We loved being close to the dunes and hearing the ocean at nights. You have to walk out to the dunes and climb to the top and enjoy the hammock that Tenaya has set up! It was a perfect weekend getaway and Tenaya is a fantastic host!!
