About the Facility

Once a park residence and then a senior center, Fern Cottage is nestled amongst ferns and groves of redwood trees within the Kennedy Grove Regional Recreation Area. With two outdoor decks, a private backyard with a landscaped lawn and garden, and a cozy stove pipe fireplace, Fern Cottage feels like a little home away from home.

Open Houses and Scheduling Tours

We have our open houses at the Brazilian Room every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month, from 3pm-7pm. During these hours we will have staff on site who can give tours of the facility and provide information on the facility and rental process.
