Interaction with Guests
We live next door and are available for all your needs, questions, concerns and information. We can point you to all our favorite hiking, biking, eating, drinking, etc.
Mendocino has so much to offer like Ocean kayaking, rivers, beaches, redwoods, dining, wine tasting, shopping and hiking. Our cottage offers great access to all of these opportunities, as well as a restful retreat from your every-day worries.
Public transportation is very limited in Mendocino. The best way to get around is by foot, bike, or car.
Other Things to Note
About cell coverage: Verizon and US Cellular work wonderfully. AT&T and T-Mobile have no coverage at the cottage, but will work in the village of Mendocino.
We do have a rooster that resides about two hundred feet from the cabin. He's not obnoxious, but he does crow a bit in the morning.
Please no smoking except outside on patio.
Please conserve water (we're on a poorly producing well).
Please relax and enjoy yourself.
What a wonderful place! We look for cozy, out of the way spots when we travel and have stayed in a lot of places, but Morgan's cabin has to be on the top of our list. The yard and surroundings were spectacular with the rhododendrons in bloom and the gorgeous landscaping. And the amenities were everything we could possibly have needed. Morgan was the perfect host, asking how he could make us more comfortable. It was nice to see Morgan and Vivian across the way watering their garden and gathering eggs from the hen house. We would love to visit again soon.
What a delightful stay. Morgan arrived to greet us at a prearranged time (communication was excellent) and thoroughly familiarized us with the cabin, which was comfortable and situated in a beautiful setting just outside of town. Oh, and as other reviewers have mentioned, he left a complimentary bottle of wine and some fresh eggs. What a nice touch. My wife and I stayed for three days and found the space to be ideal. We enjoyed warm nights by the 'fireplace', a comfortable bed, bathroom and unique living space, complete with kitchen and all the amenities, and spent some time out on the patio as well, which is framed by Morgan's backyard, garden and some old-growth trees. I highly recommend Morgan's cabin for your Mendocino getaway!
Our whole experience was what we were hoping for - easy going, relaxing and a very nice location close to town in a quiet neighborhood very close to town. Morgan & Viv checked in on us to make sure we had what we needed, and told us to stop by if we needed anything (we didn't - everything was great). We will definitely consider staying here again on our next trip to Mendocino.
What a wonderful place--it couldn't have been better. The cabin was beautiful and had everything we needed including, a comfortable bed, cozy living room with a fireplace and a well equipped kitchen (eggs from their chickens, english muffins and butter and cream.) Even better than the pictures--and the furnishings were very attractive and was spotless. Very easy to get to town--.There was plenty of information in the cabin on the area attractions. The host were very welcoming and couldn't do enough. We would love to go back there. We did see the eclipse from the lovely patio out back. Marianne and Charlie
This was one of the most wonderful places we've ever stayed. Morgan and Vivian were gracious hosts, and made sure we had everything we needed ~ and more! The Country Cabin was beautifully furnished, clean, and certainly more than just a "cabin". They provided fresh eggs from their chickens (delicious!), teas, coffee, and a bottle of wine upon our arrival. The kitchen had everything we needed. And we used one of the two grills provided on the very first night we were there.
Morgan made sure we understood how the fireplace worked, the cable television. The rooms were spacious. Everything was just wonderful!
We want to return again and again. I would recommend this beautiful country home to anyone looking for a quiet, lovely home in which to relax and enjoy themselves. And, it is half a mile from the village of Mendocino and the wonderful Ocean!
Morgan and Vivian were wonderful. I can't imagine more gracious and hospitable hosts.
Thank you for everything! We would definitely like to return.

This cabin is a bit of heaven in paradise: quiet and private but only a 5 minute drive into town; beautiful space for two people; charming decor; lots of light; everything worked; excellent host and hostess. They even let us borrow their bikes for a ride along the Big River Haul Road. We would return and highly recommend for other couples. We've staying in over a dozen Airbnb's worldwide and this is the all-around best.
The cabin was perfect for our weekend. Very clean and neat with breakfast provided (eggs from their chickens!) and plenty of books on the area. It was a short walk into town to reach many shops and restaurants. Just a quick trip to some great hiking trails and a short drive to Fort Bragg for the glass beaches.
My Wife, Vivian, and I live in Mendocino, CA. We are healthcare professionals (Vivian is a RN; I am a paramedic). We love the outdoors, music, and gardening. We have 3 children, ages 10, 17, and 22.
We have done a lot of traveling. Every year we put a lot of work into making sure we're getting our fix! We've traveled extensively in Latin America. We've also been to Europe and China. Vivian went to Haiti as part of the medical relief effort after the earthquake in 2010. We love getting into the mountains for both summer and winter activities. This year we are traveling to France and Italy.
It is a pleasure to now have a space of our own that we can offer to travelers. We look forward to meeting you and providing you with a peaceful retreat.
