Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

To stay at this darling cottage is truly to experience a slice of heaven!! Th location is fabulous! The cottage is nestled at the side of lush, sunny gardens surrounded by a huge redwood forest. It is extremely quiet and private here, yet you are only 5 minutes from all of the shops and restaurants of Mendocino. Many lovely beaches and state parks are within a ten minute drive. And Mary has thought of every welcoming detail! A bottle of wine, a bowl of fresh fruits, makings for a first yummy breakfast and more! The bedding is high quality and the mattress is brand new and very comfy! I guarantee that you won't want to leave!!

Mary & Peter make sure you have everything you need. It is very homey and cozy. Mary was a delight. We enjoyed walking through her gardens with her. She even sent me home with a plant for my garden. We can't wait to go back.

A place you have dreamed about, comes true.

  • 5 of 5

We return to the cottage as often as possible. Living in a busy city with many demands on our lives we find we have little time for each other. We try to make reservations for our next visit BEFORE we depart. This little cottage is a lovers getaway! Every thing required for a romantic time is supplied. The cottage is complete in every way. A beautiful fireplace, a complete kitchen and up stares a small library and a too too comfortable bed.

There is a CD player and a TV if you feel the need for entertainment. Out side is a private patio with a view of Mary's garden. We take our music out with us and a glass of wine or a cup of coffee and sit at the patio table. We always take time to juts take in the powerful silence of the red woods. You will find after a time you shoulders are no longer up around your ears and you experience a wonderful sense of relaxation. If possible we recommend at least a three to four day stay. Peter and Mary very special people! They have created a place that is unique . We call it our place and if you are fortunate and we are not be there, you too will fall in love with La Petite Mason, as well.

New Year Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Peter and Mary Zama have created a beautiful vacation rental with everything you'll need among the Redwood trees in Mendocino. Because my boyfriend and I like to cook the most impressive part was the kitchen it helpful that it was stocked with spices, and other basic cooking and storage utensils. We clipped rosemary growing in the garden for our New Year's Eve lamb chops! Having a wood fireplace and central heating system also made the cottage extra cozy during the rainy weekend. A book on local hikes and parks in the cottage was also very useful when deciding on where to hike over the extended weekend.

We would definitely recommend this cottage to friends and family and plan to repeat for the next New Year weekend!

Cute, quiet, and very cozy!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for two nights for his birthday. Mary is a perfect hostess and the property was clean and well kept. There are views of the redwood forest from every window and you can gaze at the stars from your bed at night through the skylights. A perfect place to get away from it all and relax!!!

Absolutely delightful!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 days at the end of Sept. at Peter and Mary's delightful cottage in the redwoods. It is so beautifully decorated with my favorite colors, blue and white. How lovely to find the wine, eggs, and fruit as we came in from a long ride from Santa Cruz. Peter and Mary couldn't be better hosts. We felt at home and as former innkeepers we know how important that feeling is for guests. Hoping to come back for a future stay. Thanks for our previous one, Peter and Mary.
