About this listing
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 beautiful summer season on the coast. Chilly nights..lovely 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 (54" wide by 75" long)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 also hike in the beautiful state parks just a short drive 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. Ask me about Glass Beach in nearby Ft.Bragg.
Interaction with Guests
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.

No TV or cooking facilities in the room (micro in room) but Mendocino has great restaurants! 2 mile drive to town. 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).

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 worked at local Inns.I enjoy my art, my home and my furry "kids". One dog and two very spoiled felines. 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!
