“A wonderful Mendocino getaway - beautiful location, charming cottage”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2010

We booked a stay at La Petite Maison for a weekend getaway, and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. The cottage is charming and cozy, very clean, and in a terrific location only a few minutes from the village of Mendocino. Set in the woods along Big River, this lovely hideaway has complete privacy, a garden, patio, and the perfect hosts - Mary and Peter.

We are already looking forward to our next visit!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2010

We just returned from our second stay at La Petite Maison. As with the last time, we enjoyed it very much. The cottage is cozy and decorated beautifully. It contains everything needed for a comfortable stay, including the makings for breakfast.

As one reviewer stated, the sun does shine in early through the skylights. However, sleep masks are provided beside the bed. I do agree that it would be nice to have curtains on the front window.

Mary is a warm and charming hostess (in no way 'crazed'), and very willing to be of assistance.

We will return and will also recommend the property to our friends.

Roger and I so enjoyed our visit to the Mendocino area made all the more enjoyable by our stay in La Petite Maison. Our Garden Cottage was delightful with every comfort and in such a lovely setting. We had a really relaxed and pleasant stay. We loved Mary's 'English' garden and looked forward each morning to the visit by a mother deer and her 'Bambi'.
Thank you Mary and Peter for making us so welcome. We would love to come back again soon.

I would prefer it if you didn't let others know of this secret find of mine. Go yourself, enjoy the peace in an intimate setting, regale the staff ( Peter and Mary ) with stories and wildly embrace them, plan your return trip, all so that we can keep La Petite Maison fresh in our memories and heart. Do not, however, tell all your friends. It will ruin our secret.

Thank you, Peter and Mary, for making your cottage so cozy and comfortable. You thought of all the little touches to make my stay so wonderful. I loved the skylights over the bed, what a gift to fall asleep looking at the multitude of stars at night. The property is lovely, I enjoyed sitting on the patio with a good book listening to the breeze rustle in the trees. And what grand trees they are!! I cannot wait to return to your beautiful haven of quiet and rest. You are charming hosts, thank you for your warm welcome and for pampering me!

We had so much fun. Our cottage was charming and comfortable and the gardens were lovely. The setting couldn't have been more romantic. Staying at La Petite Maison is a great value, and we will not hesitate to return on our next visit to Mendocino.

Down the road from the town of Mendocino where the cutest shops, fantastic food, and beautiful sites can be enjoyed. La Petite Maison is tucked away in the redwood forest. Great for bird watching, serenity, and space with all one would need to stay for as long as possible. Peter and Mary are the most darling hosts. They made our stay so welcoming. If you are looking for a place you could call your own during your vacation get away, we strongly suggest staying at La Petite Maison. This place is the perfect place to get away and just be!
