The Beach Trail Cottage

The Beach Trail is a 1- King bedroom and 1-bath Mendocino Cottage with an ocean view, situated on a quiet country lane just steps from Glendeven Inn toward the sea.

The Beach Trail Mendocino Cottage is a two-story fully-remodeled 150 year old home with fine linens and a full kitchen, while an upper floor master bedroom provides white water views down the coast looking out over Van Damme State Beach. It is private and quiet but also within a three minute walk to the amenities of Glendeven and its Wine Bar[n], just three doors down the lane from The Inn & Lodge at Glendeven toward the ocean and beach.

This cottage sits at the head of the trail to Van Damme State Park beach and is flanked by its own private trail leading to the headlands. Find the sandy beach, curious sea lions, spotted harbor seals, hunting osprey, and many tidepools within steps from your door.

The cottage is located just two miles south of the Mendocino Village. It is terrific for couples wanting a private, romantic place to be together. The cottage is for two adults only. Children are not permitted.

Inn breakfasts are not included. Breakfast can be added for $20 per person per day by request. It is served promptly at 9:00 am in The Inn at Glendeven's ocean view tea room.

Everything Iā€™d read about this place was true. The views are fabulous and the cottage had its own little path down to a sheltered cove. I actually saw a sea otter climb out of the surf! The cottage was spotless and had a full kitchen, bathrobes, wifi, the works. The hosts were lovely and helpful in making dinner reservations. Overall, well worth the price!
