The Beach Trail Cottage

Check Availability


The Beach Trail Cottage is steps from Glendeven Inn on a private country lane at the head of a beach trail. The Beach Trail is a 2-bedroom, 1-bath, 1500 sq. ft. Mendocino cottage rental with an ocean view, situated on a quiet country lane just steps from Glendeven Inn.

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 tide pools are within steps from your door.

The Beach Trail Mendocino cottage rental is a two-story, fully restored, 150-year-old home with fine linens, a fully stocked kitchen, with an upper floor master bedroom providing 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].

Known as one of the best Mendocino cottage rentals due to its amazing location, the Beach Trail Cottage is located just two miles south of the Mendocino Village. It is terrific for couples wanting a private, romantic, place to be together, for two couples traveling together, or for families of four. Children of any age are welcomed.

“Everything I’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, Wi-Fi, the works. The hosts were lovely and helpful in making dinner reservations. Overall, well worth the price!”
