We really loved Caspar cottage! So peaceful and rejuvenating! The cottage is clean and comfortable. It also has a very nice patio with two chairs, table with a bench and BBQ grill. Diane and Bob are very nice host. I will definitely come back! Thank you Diane and Bob.
My husband and I recently spent a week at the Caspar Cottage. It is situated in a very quiet, peaceful setting and the hosts, Bob and Diane, are simply delightful. They welcomed us and availed themselves to us for any information we might require for our visit. Upon arrival we were greeted with a gorgeous fresh bouquet of colorful flowers, a lovely loaf of seeded bread, raspberry jam, fresh butter, a half pound of gourmet coffee, and a large bowl of fresh fruit.
Bob and Diane are both gifted artisans. The house is meticulously clean and evidence of Bob's building skills is everywhere. It is decorated in a most comfortable and artistic manner thanks to Diane. It provides you everything you could possibly need for you stay.
There is an amazing hike within walking distance of the cottage that winds through a massive redwood forest ending at a waterfall. Fort Bragg and Mendocino are both nearby and provide galleries, restaurants, shops and proximity to the ocean. The Mendocino Botanical Gardens are worth the trip. 47 acres of wondrous natural beauty with a path that winds down to view the huge cliffs and ocean.
We recommend the Caspar Cottage with the highest regard. You will not be disappointed! Tom and Mary
Well equipped and very comfortable . Peaceful location. Friendly helpful owners who respected your privacy but were on hand for advice and suggestions .
Loved the walk to the waterfall from the cottage , beautiful scenery and huge trees . Wished we could have stayed longer . We really felt our batteries had been recharged after our stay . Thank you
I stayed at this cottage with my mother for a Mother's Day-My Birthday retreat. This place is fantastic. We had the perfect hosts and the cabin is well stocked with dishes, pans, silverware, robes, plenty of towels, soap, etc and even fresh flowers from the garden! Perfect place for a writer's retreat, best friends getaway, mother daughter weekend, or a romantic couple's retreat! Private but conveniently located close to the homeowners house who are very helpful and give plenty of guidance about the area and trails! The Russian gulch waterfall trail is an easy 3 mile round trip from the cottage that I highly recommend! Even just walking along the quiet country road was lovely with all the wild flowers in bloom! By car it's only a few minutes from Mendocino but you feel like you're in the middle of the woods. I would definitely go back and highly recommend Caspar Cottage to anyone looking for a nice getaway at a very reasonable price! Wish we could have stayed longer :)
My wife & I stayed at the Caspar Cottage for 8 days in late May, and couldn't be happier with the choice. Having stayed at different rentals over the years, sometimes what a picture shows, or is described...is different when you get there. CASPAR COTTAGE WE MUST SAY WAS BETTER, BEYOND OUR EXPECTATIONS. Diane was teriffic in getting back to us, working out details of the rental. Since the cottage is on their property, they are right there if any thing is needed. The cottage was very clean, well thought out in design. It is nicely situated in the woods, quiet...peaceful..and easy access to the ocean or a walk in Redwoods. Such a beautiful area, Mendocino...as we rounded the corner to the first view of the shore line, after driving through the Redwood Forest, we both commented how we wanted to retire here. Being from the East Coast, the shore is much different than back home, but it is more beautiful, and so far away :( Looking forward to returning some day.
