The Beach Trail Cottage

The premiere romantic vacation rental on the Mendocino Coast

Located in Little River just two short miles from the tiny hamlet of Mendocino sits the most perfect vacation rental cottage on the entire Mendocino Coast.  It is a completely remodeled, one-bedroom hideaway right at the top of a beach trail at Van Damme Beach.  This trail takes you down to the private sandy beach where otters play and seals feed each morning.

Directly behind the house is a pine forest with trails that take you out along the stunning headlands at Van Damme Sate Park where you'll find millions of wild flowers in spring, golden waving meadows in summer, the crisp blue skies of fall, and the crashing waves of winter. 


The house is cozy with its radiant floor heating throughout. The marble and glass bathroom with heated floors and heated towel rack is generous and offers views of the garden and the ocean.  The gourmet kitchen is perfect for cooking all meals in, if you choose.  The cottage is close to many world class restaurants like Wild Fish (1/2 mile south), Cafe Beaujolais in the Mendocino Village (2 miles to the north), the Ledford House in Albion just 10 minutes drive to the south.

You are just steps away from all the included amenities available at The Inn at the Cobbler's Walk and The Inn & Lodge at Glendeven, all under the same ownership.
