May 25, 2020 Coronavirus update: We have blocked the cabin through July. However if things change that will also change. I see the stay at home order in Mendocino County is extended to June 8. The retail stores are open and restaurants are given more flexibility which is a good sign, but wineries and other social gathering places are not. We hope all of you stay well and safe and healthy.
“Crispin Cottage is a great place to stay in the Anderson Valley. Across the street from the Madrones (SO sad that Stone and Embers closed! Hoping something similar opens soon!), it is a perfect place to base yourself for whatever you want to do in the valley - wine tasting, hiking in Hendy Woods, or driving out to Mendocino. Jeanette was super quick to respond, communicated well and sent great directions - and her sister was there when we arrived and her mom came out to introduce herself and say good bye as we were leaving. As to the cottage, it feels like a nice rustic apartment with fully functional kitchen, a full-size bathroom with plenty of hot water and good water pressure - and lots of nice towels. The bedroom was quiet and the bed was really comfortable. The cottage even has a washer and dryer - which we didn't use, but could come in handy if you were staying more than a couple of days. My favorite things, other than location, were probably the the enclosed patio/sunroom off the bedroom and the overall "rustic-ness" of the place. The sunroom was a perfect place to relax and have lunch on a fall day, and it was really nice to just wander the property and see a bit of valley history. Thanks Jeanette - we hope to visit again!”
My place is close to the beach 18 miles to Elk and ocean. You’ll love my place because It's clean, safe and quite. and it is cozy. My place is good for couples and solo adventurers. we are of off the main road and the last 1/2 is on a rock road. Depending upon the time of year it may have a few pot holes. However you will have no problems driving a normal car. We do it all the time. check in anytime after 11 am. call me if you want to arrive earlier.
“My husband and I were looking to get away for a few days from the hustle bustle. Bob's place was perfect for just what we needed. We really enjoyed hanging out, cooking lots of meals, playing board games and watching movies. It is quiet and remote, but close to some awesome areas. One of our favorite wineries (Golden Eye) and a lot of other good ones are close, Mendocino isn't far and actually getting to the coast is a beautiful drive through redwoods. Bob also sent us home with a keepsake portrait of my husband and me and our dog. It was a great stay! Thanks again, Bob!”
The Water Tower is tucked away and nestled among redwoods a few miles from the Pacific Ocean. This is a place to disconnect and reconnect with the surroundings. To unplug and decompress from busy life. About 5 miles from our town of Elk and a nice coastal drive 14 miles to the historic village of Mendocino. All bookings include 11% Mendocino bed tax. Our calendar is typically open 3 months in advance. If there is specific dates you are interested in, don’t hesitate to ask :)
“Our stay was absolutely perfect. Rob and Elsa thought of everything when it came to the little details that would make our stay more enjoyable. We walked in and there was soft music playing and pretty lighting, we instantly felt relaxed. At first we were worried about not having WiFi but it turns out it was exactly what we needed to disconnect from technology and truly relax. Would recommend this spot to anyone and hope to visit again. I was so sad to leave!”
