Located on an acre lot, 3 miles north of Mendocino Village and 5 miles south of Fort Bragg, with lovely landscaped gardens perfect for bird watching, picnics or croquette. Inside you will find thoughtfully decorated bedrooms, a full bath with garden views and a fully equipped kitchen and dining area that seats up to 10 people.

Walk to the Point Cabrillo Lighthouse, beach comb on the secluded beach, watch the sea lions basking in the sun. Enjoy whale watching from the bluffs or right from the cozy comfort of the cabin.

  • We had a wonderful time at Carole's cabin. Arranged at a busy time of year, last-minute. We chose the area, and the cabin, mostly because it seemed to be a good meeting point for family driving down from Oregon and up from LA. Little did we know how lovely the area is, and the beautiful cabin was frosting on the cake! We had a lovely time, cooking, eating, playing games, and watching the Mendocino-filmed movie collection provided. Daytime walks to the lighthouse and to the glass beach, badminton tournaments in the beautiful garden, grilling local wild salmon bought at the fishing boat harbour in Fort Bragg. The cabin is really pretty, has absolutely everything you need for a wonderful vacation and more. It has a fantastic well-stocked cook's kitchen, it's clean and cozy and comfortable as promised. The hosts are responsive and welcoming and we can't recommend this listing highly enough!

  • The cabin and location was wonderful. It was well prepared, clean and very comfortable. The view was amazing, both from the porch and living room and the walks to the beach, the lighthouse and the seal rock. We were in Fort Bragg Saturday and decided to go back to the cabin early just to enjoy it. Carole's Cozy Cabin is everything promised and more! Thanks for a great stay.

  • We had the most incredible time staying here. We have 2 boys aged 4 and 2 and I think that the Memorial Day weekend we spent here was the best long weekend away we have ever had. On arrival the house was clean, tidy, and very well stocked with everything you need (even binoculars for everyone!). It was comfortable, and you can see the sea and hear the sea lions while having breakfast. The gardens are huge, and we loved running round them, playing with balls, and lying in the hammock. The location is perfect - waking up and taking a walk to the light house along the coast and the next day having the secluded beach to ourselves while the boys played was magical. We will never forget it.

  • We had a great stay with our family of four! Small but cozy house with a great yard for the kids to play. We really enjoyed the view of the ocean and the sounds of the sea lions barking. We even had a flock of wild turkeys come through the yard. The house is well situated between Mendocino and Ft. Bragg with lots to do and see near by. We really enjoyed being able to walk to the beach and lighthouse. The house was well equipped with everything we needed for a 4 night stay. Would recommend this spot!

  • Carole has thought of everything to make her cabin a comfortable place to stay. There was a thoughtful welcome gift waiting for us and we especially appreciated the fully stocked kitchen. You will also find TV shows and movies filmed in Mendocino. We had fun watching some old Murder She Wrote episodes and identifying building we had noticed on our trips into town.

    The view from the back deck is stunning and the cabin is just a short walk to a rocky coastal area that is very impressive.

  • We had an amazing stay at the cottage and will definately be back! The cottage is fully felt like home. We cooked 2 out of the 3 days we were there which made our stay even more intimate and relaxing. We loved the decorations in and around the cottage, very artistic and charming. The highlight was waking up each morning and opening the blinds to reveal the spectacular ocean view. We could not have picked a better place to stay!!

  • Nicely laid out and impressively equipped cabin. Perfect location, too, we watched whales from the couch and enjoyed being able to walk to a nearby beach and state historic park.

  • The cottage was wonderful, with every amenity. The location was spectacular, with water views. The only thing I would suggest is that detailed instructions be left for the wood stove, with a note that the stove is the only heat source.

    You can feel the love in this house! Thank you.

  • I booked Carole's Cabin for a relaxing, get away girls weekend a few before a friends wedding. It was exactly what we needed! Great location (in between Mendocino and Fort Bragg, with fairly quick access to either), great views and very cozy and comfortable surroundings. All four of us girls said we would definitely come back again and recommend this quaint cabin to friends. We had a wonderful weekend, strolling the streets of Mendocino, eating yummy seafood, traveling into the valley for wine tasting and relaxing fireside in the cabin. This property is well equipped, very reasonably priced and perfect for a seaside getaway!

  • 6 friends from all over the country got together for the best friend reunion we could ask for! "The Cove" as we fondly refer to it, was wonderfully accommodating! The spare bathroom in the garage was a great little touch and made us all more comfortable. Laundry on site made it easier for our friends to travel with their infant, and Carole's had all of the kitchen items we needed to cook in every night and save our $$! We loved waking up to sea lion barks every morning and the sunsets were fabulous! Look out for deer ticks!

My family and I have owned this property for more than 30 years and continue to enjoy time spent together here. I have always enjoyed gardening and take pride in finding unique garden art and birdhouses to add to the landscape.
