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.
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.
Our hosts were so welcoming, friendly and interesting. They were very accommodating and gracious about our special request.
The cabin was so comfortable, well furnished and had a full kitchen as promised. They even provided fresh eggs, muffins,fresh fruit, and cream for coffee !!!!
We could not have asked for a more delightful place or hosts. Even the dog, cats and chickens were welcoming . We would return in a heartbeat. Thank you for making it such a special get away.
Morgan's cottage was perfect for a quiet getaway. We got to relax, walk into town, and our one-year old loved seeing the chickens and the other animals! The interior was clean and lovely.
Perfect little place..cozy, comfortable and clean..and very well-located to Mendocino and the headlands. Beautiful setting on a piece of property that is obviously loved by the Daniels, who were helpful and pleasant hosts. Somehow they even arranged for dazzling sunshine during our whole visit. High recommend this property.
Thank you Morgan and family (and chickens and cats)
Morgan's cabin was wonderful! It's located on a beautiful and serene country property complete with tall trees, chickens and vegetable gardens. The cabin itself is great. It was very clean, quiet, private and comfortable. Morgan and his family stocked the fridge and kitchen with fresh eggs and other staples and also gave us a bottle of local wine upon our arrival. Morgan was extremely welcoming and helpful when we arrived, helping us get situated and by giving us local tips.
Morgan's cabin was the perfect getaway for our small family of three. We left feeling very relaxed and will definitely be coming back!
Thank you, Morgan & Family!!
Morgan and his family's little guest cottage is perfect for a long weekend getaway! It was spotless, the bed was comfortable and we loved sitting in front of the gas fireplace. As many have mentioned, the fresh eggs, english muffins, and butter waiting for us to enjoy for breakfast was much apreciated! Also, the kitchen was 100% stocked with all cooking supplies and gadgets. We would definetely book the cabin again for our next stay in mendocino!
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.
