  • Wonderful Stay! Definitely Recommend!


    We loved our stay at Quail Cottage! The location was perfect, surrounded by Redwoods, secluded and felt very private. The home was absolutely spotless! It felt brand new and really luxurious! We hope we can stay again!

  • Perfect Little House


    Stayed for a couple nights this summer with my teenage daughter and niece. The girls loved it. Looks just like the pictures. Kitchen was well stocked. Short drive to downtown, beaches and trails. There were no window coverings in the main living space which I thought was weird at first but then we watched the evening light come through the trees. Beautiful. It’s very quiet and peaceful. You have your own little nook on the property with trees all around. Perfect for what we needed to explore Mendocino and Fort Bragg.

    Loved the home! Stayed here with my husband to celebrate our wedding anniversary and it did not disappoint!!! The host added such thoughtful touches like mosquito repellent (which I accidentally forgot). We had such an amazing time disconnecting for a couple of days.

  • Beautiful Mendocino Forest Retreat


    My wife and 3.5 year old son all enjoyed our stay here. The bed was super comfortable and sleeper couch was a nice touch. Linens and towels were very nice. Rental was super clean and everything looked new.

    The kitchen was well stocked with the essentials (olive oil, salt, pepper, Keurig pods, condiments) as well as plates/cups/knives.

    I agree with the other reviewer, a hot tub would take this rental to the next level but you really can't go wrong here, about a 10 min drive to downtown Mendocino, very private and quiet and didn't miss the A/C at all this weekend, screened windows helped alleviate some of the daily heat build up.
