Fresh, bright, comfy, cosy, peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Relaxed, refreshed, joyful: that's how we feel after our few days of staying at our favorite VRBO, "La Petite Maison". A gem nestled in a bright clearing in the redwoods. Lovely setting; charming and gracious hosts. Beautiful garden. We return each year (this is our 10th anniversary). Thank-you!

Wonderful cottage in the woods.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is cozy and inviting. At the end of the road it is quiet and relaxing but you are only 5 minutes from Mendocino Village. Mary and Peter are wonderful hosts who think about everything you might need or want. I spent a month here and would have loved to stay on.

Wonderful host, very private, fully stocked cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for a weekend away in Mendocino. It's nestled in the Redwoods, private, quiet and serene. Mary has done a beautiful job with her garden and went above and beyond to make us feel at home. It's got a good amount of space for resting, and is a quick drive to town.

The cottage has everything you need for cooking, some books, movies, etc. Really lovely space.

A Peaceful Retreat at La Petite Maison

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place to celebrate our 36th anniversary! This wonderful cottage had all we needed to relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. The space was very comfortable with inviting sitting areas both upstairs and down. Mary's decor and the colors she has used throughout are fresh and fun! We enjoyed the many books, magazines and games while sitting by the wood stove in the evenings. Tasty snacks and breakfast essentials were also provided along with a lovely bottle of wine and the kitchen had everything you would need to prepare meals. The patio, with its fish pond and assortment of colorful flowers and interesting succulents was inviting and beautiful! We spent some time there soaking up the sun on comfortable lounge chairs! We also thoroughly enjoyed the amazing view from the cozy bed with the large skylights above, perfect for stargazing! The cottage was just minutes away from Mendocino which made it easy to run in for a meal, a walk on the beach or a hike at Russian Gulch. La Petite Maison's quiet setting was hard to leave and greatly appreciated by us! Mary and Peter have created a lovely, private retreat on their property in the redwoods and we will definitely be back again! We are so glad we got a chance to visit with Mary as we checked out, she is a gem!
