Tenaya was warm and welcoming and took the time to show up around her beautiful property. She even left homemade jam, strawberries and cookies in the refrigerator. The Cottage is very sweet and cozy. The little sitting rooms has wonderful skylights above which makes it very pleasant to sit in. The outdoor tub was my favorite part, morning or night make sure you are in that bath! The desolate dunes are 5 minute walk from the house. A stunning place to watch the sunset and the moon rise. In addition there tons of parks and hikes and beautiful bits of coast line to explore that are all no more then 20 minutes away. This is wonderful place to come and just relax and enjoy or to use as a home base for other exploration. We would definitely stay here again! NOTE: the kitchen is really for light cooking. We mostly used the grill. If you want to have a full kitchen - The Rose Cottage (also Tenaya's property) would be better for you. It is right next door to Clara's Cottage and has a big lovely deck in the sunshine overlooking the yard. It is a bit larger and has a full kitchen. I preferred Clara's cottage because of the access to the amazing out door bath, but after seeing it I think my husband might have preferred The Rose Cottage because he likes to have more space - particularly space in the kitchen. I would happily stay in either again.
Wow! This was the cutest, most magical cottage! We felt very welcome and taken care of here. The bed was very comfortable, the space and yard were very private, and the outdoor shower was magical! We want to stay here again!
We had the most wonderful time staying at Rose Cottage. Tenaya has perfected the art of hosting -- we received a warm welcome and helpful guidance on where to explore. The cottage is cozy and invited conversation and reflection.
Photos don't do the sand dunes and local beach justice, so you'll have to go and see them for yourselves! We are already planning a return visit to Dune Gardens with friends and family. It's a magical place.
What a wonderful weekend we had at Clara's Cottage! Staying here truly made our trip unique and one we will always remember. Tenaya was a terrific host who really takes the time to add a personal touch. From the fresh cut flowers in the cottage to the homemade jam and muffins. Her dedication to making our stay specisl really makes this place stand out. We had a blast BBQing, playing lawn games (we brought our own) and walking to the beautiful private beach near by. Thanks Tenaya! We can't wait to come back.
Wow, all the great reviews were true, and everything was as described, or better!
It was so nice to just relax, just chill in the garden, walk down to the sand dunes, read a book, play some games or take a bath in the outdoor bathtub. There are no signal on the phone or wi-fi, so plenty of time for that stuff (Signal down at the dunes, wifi in town on various cafes, etc if needed).
We had just time for two nights before going back home to Norway, we wish we had at least one week! If we ever come back to this area again we sure will book again if available. Perfect place!
Tenaya was greeting us when we arrived, and gave us all the info we needed. The next time we met her was when we left after two days.
All in all a perfect stay!
Clara's cottage was absolutely wonderful. The location is perfect and secluded, the cottage cozy, and the outdoor bathtub a really great experience. It's a 5 minute walk to the sand dunes and the beach, and only a 10 minute drive to town.
Tenaya was a great host, with great recommendations for things to do in the area, and left us some amazing homemade jam.
I can't recommend this place enough! We will definitely be back.
Coming home after our visit at Clara's cottage was tough. Our time felt well spent because of the cozy, relaxing atmosphere, easy planning and home-like setting. My personal highlight was waking up early on Saturday morning to a nice cup of coffee, a good book and the birds chirping on the bushes outside. Next time we want to bring a snow saucer for the sand dunes to add a little adventure to our trip! Thanks Tanaya for your hospitality on our little getaway.
Clara's cottage was utterly delightful! Beautiful dunes nearby, a quaint little kitchen, beautiful outdoor clawfoot and even a rice cooker to boot!
We had a lovely romantic weekend here, walking around the area, picking yellow foot and hedgehog mushrooms at the local forest....this city girl is feeling refreshed, and I will be back! :-) Thanks for having us!
We just returned from 2 restful rejuvenating nights at Clara's cottage. Tenaya made us feel welcome from the moment of our arrival and all the homey touches from her delicious jam, muffins and applesauce she provided to the beautiful artistic buildings and gardens made the experience extra special. The outdoor tub under the giant cypress tree was also a high point. She even made sure to fill the bird feeder outside our door so we could have the pleasure of watching the birds as we ate our breakfast. The location of the cottage on a quiet lane which leads directly to the dunes and one of the most beautiful almost deserted beaches in northern Ca. added to our enjoyment. We definitely plan to return whenever possible.
My daughter and I spent two peaceful and glorious days at Tenaya's perfectly appointed cottage. Her love, care and attention to detail was obvious at every turn. We will be back.
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.
