Welcome to our cozy cottage, overlooking the beautiful redwood forest. Each window allows full views of Redwood and Fir trees, and some of our favorite old growth Redwood stumps (logged in the late 1800’s), with huckleberries, wax myrtle, wild strawberries, foxgloves and ferns complimenting the scene.

The cottage features a fully equipped kitchen and full bathroom with shower, wood fired stove, and private south-facing deck and backyard.

There are two queen beds, one in the floor-level common room (see pictures), and one up the captains ladder in the private loft room. Please note, the ladder is only recommended for physically capable adults and minors under parental supervision.

For an additional fee, it is possible to allow one tent with up to two occupants to set up in the cottage’s yard space.

The cottage shares the 7 acre property with our family home. We’re an active family of 4, with a 3.5 year old a 9 month old, plus a large breed fluff ball, named Zora. We love sharing our property with others, and hope they enjoy it as much as we do.

The wood stove is the main source of heat for the cottage (firewood provided). A small space heater is also available, but it is much cozier and effective to build a fire!

We are located in Albion, CA, about 20 minutes south of Mendocino. The quaint town of Albion has a well supplied general store & deli, post office, and hardware store.

Across the historic Albion Bridge is the Albion Marina and entryway to the beauty Albion River. We are also fortunate to have two fine dining establishments just 5 miles down the road.

We had a great time in this peaceful cottage close to all great homes around Mendocino. We would definitely book this site again for overnights in the area

Clean, spacious, and private entrance with no need to interact with the host because is accommodated for within the cabin. Would definitely recommend or stay there again if I’m in the area. Stove campfire, books, board games, kitchen ware were all available within the cabin. Nice porch area to sit and relax in the evening or morning. Outside fire available when allowed by the county. Great place!

Lydia was a great host! She met as we arrived and answered any questions we had, and was also super helpful in advance of our stay - sharing nearby hikes and places to explore. The cabin is such a nice little spot in the woods. Super quiet and even though we only stayed a night, felt like the perfect getaway from the city. Also a close drive to nearby coastal trails and Mendocino proper, so best of both worlds. Would definitely recommend and come back again!

A very cozy experience in the woods of Albion! The Mendocino coast is so magical, this is a great jumping off point to explore. Big kitchen made meals fun. Great hosts!

Unbelievably cozy cottage with all the amenities you’d expect from a boutique hotel or airbnb. Perfect for unplugging and getting out there with all the comforts you still want for a weekend getaway. If you see Zora please pet her for me!

We had a lovely time at Fern Cottage. The little cottage has full amenities and comfortable beds. The surrounding is peaceful and green with beautiful trees. Our family had a lot of cozy relaxing time sitting by the wood burning fireplace.
It’s a great place to be in cold rainy days. Lydia was a great hostess! Very helpful and even warm up the cottage by starting the fire before our arrival.
We would love to visit again!!
