Adorable owner built cabin with custom open beam ceilings nestled in the forest adjacent to Jackson State Forest, providing endless trails for hiking and biking. Quiet country setting, yet conveniently located between Mendocino and Fort Bragg and minutes from the beach and either town, making this a perfect location to enjoy all of the Mendocino coast.

The space
This 700 square foot cottage is located on 5 secluded acres and was designed and built entirely by the owners. The cottage includes many special touches such as open beamed ceilings milled with local redwood. The cottage has tons of natural light. A propane wood-stove provides cozy heat and ambiance with the push of a button. There are also electric heaters in the bedroom and bathroom for additional warmth. Unwind on the redwood deck with a Nespresso or enjoy a hot outdoor shower for two in the private shower area outside or if you prefer, a bath in a large claw foot tub inside.

We are very kid friendly and able to allow additional children upon request. A futon can be set up for an additional child. We also have a very friendly dog but she stays on our side of the property most of the time.

We are also happy to provide recommendations for dining, beaches, trails or whatever else you are interested in seeing.

Jackson State Forest is our next door neighbor and is a mountain biker’s dream. There is a trail that leads from the property into the forest and we will leave you a map. Located ten minutes north of Mendocino and ten minutes south of Fort Bragg and five minutes from what we think is the best beach in the area. Please note that WiFi is very slow here due to limited satellite service streaming does not generally work well but is ok for basic communication. We do have a dvd library and cable TV.

Guest access
Please feel free to use the entire yard. WiFi is available but is slow and occasionally drops due to a satellite connection.

Our family loves the outdoors... hiking, mountain biking, and just hanging out in the sun. We built our houses with tons of windows to bring the light and outside in as much as possible. We love sharing our passion for the outdoors with friends and guests.
