Caspar Cottage is a charming, quiet, private, newly furnished cottage that we bulit on our five secluded acres, 3 miles up the ridge from the ocean and 10 minutes from Mendocino or Fort Bragg. It has a comfortable queen bed with down comforter and nice linens, new sleeper sofa, fully equipped kitchen, gas BBQ and picnic table with string lights above to enjoy the evenings outside,lovely custom cabinetry and a beautiful marble tiled bathroom with a jet tub and a large shower. The cottage is very comfortable and nicely appointed. Flames from an enameled European propane stove bring the warmth and coziness of a fire with the convenience of a thermostat. There is a radio CD player with Ipod dock, DIRECTV w/ HBO,DVD/VCR with small library of movies, Satellite INTERNET connection,

iron and hairdryer. We provide fresh flowers and organic coffee and teas, wholesome bread, butter and jam and fresh fruit for the mornings.

From the cottage you can walk through the Redwoods to a beautiful WATERFALL, as we are near the Russian Gulch State Park Waterfall Trail and bicycle trails in Jackson State Forest. We will gladly direct you to great restaurants, nice beaches, beautiful hikes and activities on the coast.

Gorgeous home away from home

  • 5 of 5
Many, many thanks for providing such a gorgeous home away from home. Not only is the cottage as fine as it appears on the web, but far nicer! Every little detail is taken care of. It is obvious that both of you are skilled artists and please know that we continually appreciated your creations all week. Such a caring, welcoming and interesting couple you are.

From the moment we arrived we felt like we were at home. Not only is no necessity left undone, but necessities we didn't even know we needed were anticipated and filled. Spotless, well decorated, tranquil and lovely! Thanks for sharing your special cottage with us.

Every inch of this cottage is FABULOUS!

  • 5 of 5
Wow! This place was way beyond what the pictures show. I was very happy here and do not want to leave. I can't see how your children ever did. If i were your kid you would never get rid of me (please adopt me) EVERY INCH OF THIS COTTAGE IS FABULOUS! Great detail work Bob. And you Diane are so thoughtful in regards to what a traveler may need. I love your anticipation of what guests need. Your gardening is beautiful. The bed was like heaven, and I thought the tub was until the bed. Can Bob come build this for me? Thank you!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Caspar Cottage. It makes us very happy when guests love this sweet cottage like we do. We try to make it as comfortable and inviting as possible. We just added cafe string lights above the picnic table and chairs so that guests can use the BBQ and dine outdoors in the evenings. I enjoy getting the cottage ready for our guests knowing that when they arrive they will be thrilled to be here. We hope to see you back here again soon.

Exquisite beauty, peaceful and charming

  • 5 of 5
We rented Caspar Cottage for 5 nights to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. The cottage was even more charming than the pictures, if that's possible! Beautiful, peaceful setting, very well constructed, high quality, an abundance of amenities. The attention to detail was everywhere.The bed was extremely comfortable, everything was spotless. We could not have picked a better place! And the price-I feel like we stole the place! Nowhere else would you find such a unique and special getaway like this for the money. Very conveniently located to a plethora of activities and scenic wonders. Simply drive 3 miles on 409 rd, then either turn right or left onto HWY 1-within minutes there are endless beaches and bluffs, restaurants, shops, adventures, etc. On our way into Mendocino that first day, we stopped at several great wineries on our very scenic route through the Anderson Valley. During our stay we very much enjoyed :hiking from the cottage to the beautiful waterfall in the redwoods, having picnics on Pine Beach and Jughandle Beach, eating lunch and shopping at Noyo Harbor, experiencing seal watching at MacKerricher Park, hiking to the light house, 'beach hopping' along HWY 1, exquisite dining at Ledford House which included seeing grey whales spouting in the ocean! Overall, the area was so serene and quiet. Endless beauty. Not to mention the short drive to the redwoods in Montgomery Forest.Everyone should be able to experience the majestic redwoods in their lifetime. Indescribable. We will never forget this trip to Mendocino,the fabulous time we had, nor the place where we stayed- Caspar Cottage. Bob and Diane are such genuine and friendly people-very helpful and kind hosts. We already have friends who are wanting to look into staying at Caspar Cottage, and we would love to return again.If you're looking to rekindle your spirit, this is the place!
