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 lovely winter & spring seasons on the 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 (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.
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.
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! 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).
Other Things to Note

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!
SORRY BUT NO PETS. NO smoking. Quiet and secluded. There is a small private home just west of my property.
This was a great experience. The property is beautiful, Sandra is very easygoing and helpful, and the cottage is really nice inside. It is simple but has everything you need, and Sandra stocks it up with some nice goodies.
We rode on motorcycle up the coast, stayed for the night, and rode back. It was perfect for that.
Also the cabin is mainly heated by a wood stove which works really well for the space and is nice, cozy heat. There's no TV which is great if you just want to enjoy being somewhere in natural beauty.
Had a wonderful time at Sandy's. She was very welcoming and the space was super cute and perfect for our weekend trip. There was juice and snacks in the fridge, which was a really nice touch. We would definitely stay here again.
Sandy was such a welcoming host and her place was just perfect - everything you need and in the best location. Everything was spotlessly clean and we enjoyed all the little snacks and treats she left us. She really thought of everything - highly recommend!
This little cottage is adorable. I was very happy with my stay here. It's nice and quiet there too, as you're almost completely surrounded by trees. It's very cozy inside and nicely decorated in the cabin. Sandy was a great host too. She was so sweet and made us delicious muffins.
Sandy's meadow retreat was a cute little space. My wife and I enjoyed being away from the city in a secluded place. Sandy was a gracious host. She made use feel welcomed and at home. Leaving us treats for the morning and goodies for the evening!
The space is exactly as described! We only wish we could have stayed longer!
Sandy was a fantastic host! We loved the fresh fruit, blueberry muffins, coffee and juice that she provided. The room was cozy and perfect for our weekend stay in Mendocino. We enjoyed using the wood-burning fireplace each night to warm up on the cold winter nights. We would definitely return again.
Sandy was wonderful. The place was small and cozy--but had all of the basic amenities, plus a few sweet treats (chocolates and nuts to greet us, fresh fruit for breakfast along with pastries and delicious coffee). Just a five minute drive to Mendo!
I have lived in this area for 21 years....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!
