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!
This place is such a gem. We loved our stay here. The best part of this place is the outdoor bathtub. It has inspired me to update my own bathtub. Perfect location to get away from the everything and just enjoy nature.
Tenaya personally greeted us when we arrived and showed us the around the cottage and the surrounding gardens. We were very pleased with the cottage, which is small but well-organized, and the kitchen had all the appliances we needed. The location is private and quiet, there were other guests staying in the cottage nearby but we never saw nor heard them. Would recommend for a couple looking for a relaxing get away.
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.
Clara's Cottage is nestled in trees and gardens and could not have been any more quaint and delightful. Tenaya welcomed us to her property and oriented us to the very clean, bright, cozy cottage and all the surroundings upon our arrival. She was made us feel at home and was extremely thorough which made it possible for us to take care of ourselves during our visit. As this was our honeymoon it was appreciated ;) The gardens were full of beautiful flowers and a bathing oasis! The tub was one of the biggest highlights as well as the dunes which were located just down the lane. We had the hammock and the beach to ourselves to relax, walk, and collect sea shells. It was a slice of heaven on earth.
Arriving at Clara's cottage was a wonderful experience. Ed and Tenaya greeted us with a warm heartfelt welcome. This being our first Air BNB experience they were so helpful in explaining to us how everything works on the property. They gave us lots of suggestions of things that we might want to see and do during our visit. Upon entering the cottage it was evident that much thought and love went into the preparation for our stay. All our needs were anticipated for our stay and were met beyond our expectations. Ed and Tanaya exhibit a great love for the environment which was reflected in the garden setting and all the creatures that live there with them. The artistic flare that the Middleton's have for creating a serene and peaceful environment was simply wonderful.
Lovely and relaxing. Jam and snacks were a nice touch. Make sure you make it to the hammock on the dune.
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.
Tenaya was a lovely host and she has created an amazing retreat-like experience for her guests. We were actually one of the first guests in Clara's cottage way back in 2011 and we enjoyed our stay so much that we came back for round 2 this past weekend. It is close enough to the towns and attractions that you can make good use of your time in the area -- or, like us, you can choose to simply enjoy the grounds, the cottage and especially the outdoor bathtub :)
We had such an amazing time here- from visiting the sand dunes at sunset and swinging on the hammock to bathing in the moonlight in the outdoor tub, the experience was pure HEAVEN and adventure! The cottage really has everything you could possibly need for a stay. We brought way too many kitchen utensils to cook and we were pleasantly surprised to find the little kitchen had it all! The cottage's woodburning stove was also a treat for coming in after a nighttime soak. The many windows are wonderful and give the feeling of being within nature yet sheltered and comfortable. And the views of Tenaya's garden are a plus! Truly one of the most beautiful, serene places I've ever stayed. If you are looking for a place to relax, unwind, be in nature, close to hikes, hot springs & beaches, Clara's cottage is absolutely perfect. The weather was perfect this time of year, in the low 70s during the day with little fog in the am. Nights were in the low 60's but somehow didn't feel very cold. I took a bath outside every night and was not cold. Yet another little magical thing about this place. I highly recommend staying here and cannot wait to return!
What a wonderful escape! I found the journey mild to and from this truly peaceful and regenerating little home by the sea. I couldn't have asked for more - the weather was fine, the company was friendly, and the gardens, the private beach access, the quiet breeze and flicker of sunlight on the backs of birds fluttering about. Very, very nice.
