The Cottage at Mendocino Farmhouse is nestled in a private redwood forest just minutes from the village of Mendocino.
Newly renovated to accommodate two people, The Cottage has everything to make your stay comfortable and safe.
Revel in the solitude of a forest setting and explore the private garden that is just a step from your doorway.
Across from the barn is the Farmhouse, which has been a bed and breakfast for the past 35 years, but will now be a long term rental.
Margie is still on the property enjoying her garden and chickens and the lovely place she has called home for 45 years.
Mendocino Farmhouse and the barn now know as “The Cottage” were built for my family in 1976 on a five acre parcel of land that was logged to make a clearing for the buildings and garden. The gardens were finished a few years later after much work and lots of mulch and horse manure. There were milk goats in the barn, a flock of chickens and a big vegetable garden. Now most of the vegetables have been replaced with flowers and berries. In 1985 the rooms in the house were converted into four guest rooms and the barn was made into two rooms.
My son John helped in the early remodel in the house when he returned from the Peace Corps and son James has given invaluable help with numerous construction projects including the original barn and now converting the barn into The Cottage. My daughter Karin is always a great source of ideas and practical advice with her extensive knowledge in the hospitality and event management field and her successful business Karin Kamb Consulting.
