The Garden Cottage is a quiet, peaceful retreat in the country just 5 minutes north of the Claremont Village and the Claremont Colleges. We offer top notch amenities in a traditional and comfy setting and have many returning guests who just love it here! Our reviews speak to the care we put into each guest's stay.
The 600 sq ft. Garden Cottage is traditionally appointed with a living area overlooking the porch and garden. There is a sofa and TV in the living room along with a small workspace. We have Wifi throughout the property. The kitchen is galley style and fully equipped including some spices for the cook. Coffee and tea are provided along with some welcoming snacks on your first nights arrival to get you started.
The bedroom has a queen pillowtop bed with lots of dresser space and a large walk-in closet. In the bath there is a shower. Clean linens and towels are provided as well as a blow dryer, soap, shampoo and conditioner.
Please note that this is a non-smoking property and not suitable for children. A car is highly recommended but Uber available too. Free parking.
There are laundry facilities on the premises including soap and dryer sheets all free of charge. (For guests only please.)
Vons, the grocery store, is just short distance down on the corner along with great Chinese take out and the Euro Café.
You will be given a key upon check-in. The garden has two sitting areas that you are welcome to use. We have two standard poodles and one small poodle on the property but we keep them in the main house. We are very careful when letting them out in the yard as they are excited to meet anyone new.
You will be walking across the yard to access the cottage as shown in the pictures. This path is partly grass and may be uneven in areas but level.
Please note that the hot tub is not available for guest use.
Parking is provided in the driveway.
Interaction with guests
We are available by mobile phone and live in the main stone house right on the property. Should you need anything or have any questions we will do our best to help or answer in a timely fashion.
Other things to note
We have been hosting The Garden Cottage here for some years and have many happy guests, lots of thank you notes, and many returning guests from around the world who have become extended family. Most of our guests are the visiting parents of students, instructors visiting the colleges and those visiting friends living here in Claremont and our surrounding neighbors of Upland, La Verne, Glendora and Rancho Cucamonga among others.
As we are in a nitch of Claremont near the wilderness park, we do frequently have coyotes howling at night along with owls, fox, lots of bunnies and an occasional bobcat. We hope you will enjoy the solitude and the natural surroundings.

Welcome to Claremont. My name is Terri. I was born and raised right here in this small stone home on 2 acres. Mom moved the old grove house here about 35 years ago and now we are pleased to offer it on Airbnb as The Garden Cottage. Although we have not been with Airbnb long, we have been hosting The Garden Cottage for over 10 years. Many return guests consider this their 2nd home in the USA and have become extended family to us.
As hosts, Marty and I spoil our guests with little welcome goodies. Our cottage is well appointed with personal treasures and comfy furnishings. We offer amenities to make you feel right at home during your stay.
As guests we are always clean and courteous. We feel it is important to build honesty and trust in the Airbnb community as we do in our personal lives as well. We will always take the Airbnb option as opposed to motels and hotels. Now we are happy to join Airbnb with offering our own Garden Cottage for you to enjoy.
