comfy room with sitting area. Enjoy looking out the window at the stars on a clear night. There is nothing like it!
Awesome experience, really clean and nice room. The wood burning fireplace was a definite plus. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return in the future. Muffins were great too!
My wife, 3-month old, and I stayed with Sandy for a night before the Memorial Day weekend. We had a fantastic stay, and Sandy was delightful. The place was perfect for the three of us, and we really appreciated all the little amenities like coffee in the morning :)
What an AMAZING space!!!!! Loved loved loved this place! The bed is extremely comfortable & room has everything you may need. Lovely extras - nuts & fruit, bottled water and PHENOMENAL muffins (beyond delicious). And Sandy is so delightful and makes staying at her retreat so easy and welcoming.
Our stay at Sandy's meadow retreat was lovely and just as described! We only stayed one night, but Sandy made us feel very welcome, with fresh muffins and great recommendations for sunset (email hidden)anks Sandy! The room was private, clean, and very comfy!
Highly Recommended!! Sandra is a gracious hostess. The cottage is cozy and so very clean. Private and so very quiet, it's refreshingly relaxing. Fridge is packed with generous goodies, and bathroom is well stocked! We also fell in love with her sweet dog, Patches :) ~~Sydney & Crystal
Sandra and Patches were awesome!! Amazing little quiet spot, just perfect!! Loved the fireplace! Thank you so much and if Australia doesn't work out we will be back soon!!!
We loved every minute spent in Sandy's Meadow Retreat. The place was perfect and Sandy was the best host anyone can ever ask for. She greeted us and made us feel at home the very instant we got there. The location felt like you were in the most peaceful, restful spot, yet only minutes into town. The cabin was just perfect and it was immaculately clean and organized and so cozy. The little touches and the treats Sandy had in the cabin made us feel so warm and welcomed. And the muffins were to die for! Thanks again Sandy. Staying at your place was truly a treat and I'm looking forward to more!
About the Host, Sandra
I have lived in this area for 23years....I was raised in the Bay Area and worked for the City of San Mateo. After retiring from Police and Fire service (dispatcher) I am now working part-time at local B&B's. I enjoy my art, my home and my furry "kids". One dog and two very spoiled felines. I work part-time at a local Inn and enjoy the Mendocino Art Center & the various classes they offer. I spend hours on the bluffs and on the beach taking photographs.
Only moments from the village of Mendocino and the beautiful coastal bluffs. This is also located minutes from the State Parks. Van Damme is about 5 minutes away..they have lovely trails through the Fern Canyon. Big River State Beach is minutes away and you can enjoy running in the sand, rent a canoe nearby or walk the 7-mile trail along the river. Montgomery Woods is a 20 minute drive east of here. Nice trails and very tall trees!. Historic town of Ft.:Bragg is approximately 12 miles north...enroute you can stop at Pt.Cabrillo Lighthouse, Caspar Beach or the Botanical Gardens. Ft. Bragg offers great shops as well as the Skunk Train that travels into the redwoods. Watch the seals bask in the sun north of Ft.Bragg in the State Park. Shop in downtown Mendocino for unique items as well!
I am available to answer any questions that you may have. I hope you find this area as magical as I do! Life is to be enjoyed, every moment!
