Very cute and private detached guestroom on 5 acres, only 2 miles from the heart of Mendocino! Small room with full bed, private bathroom (standing shower), wood stove, refrigerator and microwave. Ideal for one person but works for two!
Special treat each day - coffee cake!
Enjoy the springtime on the lovely coast. Chilly nights...comfortable days...a bit of fog. Sit by a roaring fire reading, knitting, painting or snoozing! Small space but will give you that much needed getaway from your normal routine! Very comfy bed with full sized mattress. Luscious linens as well. Continental breakfast consists of a delicious homemade coffee cake, muffins or some type of pastry, OJ, and local ground roast coffee or tea. Also a couple tasty snacks. Please let me know if dietary restrictions. IMPORTANT NOTE: AS most of you know, California is experiencing a serious drought. I ask guests to honor our earth by conserving water. SHORT showers please to conserve precious water...we have a well here and would not want to run out! Thank you in advance.
Guests can stroll down my country lane and hike in the beautiful state parks within a short distance away. Very nice neighborhood with very little traffic. You are just a few minutes from VanDamme SP and the quaint historic village of Mendocino. Big River beach is beautiful and you can walk on paved trail for about 7 miles inland along the river. You will see the wildlife galore! Rent a canoe or bikes at "Catch a Canoe" while you are there.
I am home most of the time and am available for anything you may need. More linens, towels, coffee, tea, information on the area, more coffee cake?! (yum) You will have total privacy. I do have one dog and two cats in my home. SO sorry but no pets in the guestroom.
Internet works here ..and most cell phones work. Verizon for sure! Cell service is a bit sketchy at times. BUT please know that you can use my phone when necessary. No TV or cooking facilities in the room but Mendocino has great restaurants! 3 min. drive! Host will give you lots of ideas according to your taste. For sightseeing information please see my Profile.
No public transit. Everything easily accessible by car (town, State Parks, restaurants, etc).
The room is 12ft x 13-1/2ft. Small but everything you need!
If you are celebrating a special occasion and need a little delicious cake...$35 for the homemade cake! you will love it. Give me a few days notice!
This place is perfect for a weekend getaway. Sandy provided everything we could possibly ask for. She really knows how to take care of her guests. The place was tidy and very charming and close to Mendocino and the surrounding parks/beaches. I would definitely recommend staying here!
Words fail to convey....the space is cozy beyond belief and the setting is pure Mendecino... all the details were spot-on, from the cloud soft bed and silky linens to the goodies in the fridge.... All of this, however, pales in comparison to Sandy herself, who we both immediately fell in love with and wanted to pack up and take home with us (she almost went for it) Six stars , in every category!
We enjoyed a wonderful weekend at Sandy's. I highly recommend Sandy's cottage. Close enough, but not too close to Mendo. VEry quiet.
We had a wonderful time at Sandy's meadow retreat! Sandy is awesome and the cottage is just PERFECT. Sandy greeted us as we pulled up, showed us all around and we even got to meet her cute doggie Patches! This was our first time in Mendocino and our first time using Airbnb, WOW were we pleased. Sandy had some great tips for us (eat at Pattersons, it was delicious) about the area and the muffins were yummy, she even had bottled water and OJ for us in the mini fridge. We had a wonderful anniversary and Sandy was the perfect host, we will be back for sure! thank-you so much Sandy!!!

My husband and I decided on a whim to go to Mendocino and booked Sandy's cottage based on the reviews and the pictures. And believe me, it's the best decision we ever made.
We had a beautiful time at Mendocino. The guest house is tucked in the woods but not too far away from Mendocino downtown. We got to drive up to Headlands state park and take in the views and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Like one of her guests had mentioned, sleeping on that bed is like sleeping on a cloud. So much tranquility around, it's the best thing we could have done.
Sandy's guest house is probably the most wonderful place in the world. The house is hidden in the woods, there are no words to describe the silence and fresh air, and really close o the town of Mendocino. It is soo cute and cozy. The fireplace inside makes it even more snugly. And Sandy is such a nice, hospitable and warm-hearted person. She had the best recommendations for us, made us feel really welcome from the very first moment and makes the best blueberry muffins.
Markus and Janina! you two are just the best! thanks for such a lovely and wonderful review. That made my day! I am so pleased that you enjoyed everything so much and I hope you return to this area again someday. I truly feel I met two new wonderful young friends! Hope life will treat you well...and happy travels! Take care.
What a wonderful hostess and fabulous getaway! This room is comfortable and adorable, perfect for someone looking for a quiet place to really get away from it all. The room is perfectly cozy and has everything two people could need: full bathroom, microwave, mini fridge, extra comfy bed, and (best of all) wood stove! Our weekend here was romantic and relaxing. The room was full of accommodations (perfect for the forgetful traveler) and Sandy was so thoughtful and respectful. It was a pleasure to meet Sandy and enjoy two days in her bnb! We could not have been happier!
We had a REALLY nice time. We were only there for one night, but we wish we were there for a bit longer. Sandy was always in good communication with us, and she was there to meet us as soon as we arrived. She got us all set up, and the place was very cozy and comfortable. In the evening, we got a great fire going! The bedding was super comfortable and everything was very clean. If passing through Mendocino, we would definitely stay there again! Oh... and the blueberry muffins - AWESOME :-).
We spent two nights in Sandy's place. It was a great experience. The room is very cozy and you find every thing you need. Sandy is a perfect host and she is very kind. She was easy to get in touch and always ready to help you if you need something. Her muffins for breakfast were amazing. Highly recommend her place.
