The great service and charm began even before our stay at the cottage...Mary Zama was very pleasant and helpful in booking and directions. Once we finally arrived, the first view of the cottage was even better than the pictures. La Petite Maison is kept extremely well, the grounds are beautiful and the location is close enough to Mendocino (5 minutes) but feels far away from everything. This was a birthday present for me and there was a bottle of wine, strawberries and a lovely note waiting when we arrived. After Mary showed us around, the cottage was ours for the weekend, which was really not long enough, we enjoyed every second. Our favorite feature was the skylight over the bed...during the day, we could watch the treetops blowing in the breeze; at night we could see the stars. It was worth the three hour drive, we will be back as soon as we can!
