An idyllic location just up the hill 1 mile from the town of Mendocino. Far enough away from the bustle & traffic for quiet and privacy, close enough to reach any of the local activities & locations that interest you. A beautiful, secluded 3-acre garden setting where you can rest & recharge. A delicious breakfast is included. And now, recharge your plug-in hybrid or electric car as well, with an easily accessible Level 2 charger.

SPECIAL 3RD-NIGHT OFFERS AVAILABLE, PLEASE ASK.

The space
Your stay less than one mile up the hill from the historic coastal town of Mendocino begins in the comfortable two-room garden suite (with private entrance & bathroom) of my home on a quiet, tree-lined lane. In the morning, wake up refreshed and look out onto the expansive meadow with its heritage apple orchard and country garden bursting with myriad flowers. Inside or out, enjoy the satisfying breakfast foods available all day in your suite—organic coffee, an assortment of over 20 kinds of tea, cocoa, milk, freshly made granola, multi-grain bread from a superb local bakery, organic yogurt, and organic fruit. Sit on the deck in the magical morning, or later in the day, sip a glass of wine and watch many kinds of birds stopping at the feeders and winging their way to points near and far. And with the under counter refrigerator, microwave & toaster oven, a French press, and teapot located in the sunny, bright east room of the suite, you can expand your eating options. I even do your dishes! In the separate bedroom, your comfort is ensured with a new queen-size Deluxe FloBed, an electric fireplace, and 2 cozy armchairs in the seating area. A spacious closet with a generous supply of wooden hangers and a mirror offers you room in which to store your personal belongings, and also holds an additional blanket, a comforter, two pillows, and two luggage racks.

This jewel of an accommodation offers you privacy and quiet for a restful, restorative getaway. Puzzles, games, and books are available for diversion. And the sunlit studio also offers the perfect space to read, write, or work. Several feet of desk-height counter space, generous enough for two, inspire writing, sewing, knitting, art work. In addition, there's an iron and ironing board, should you feel especially industrious. Complimentary wi-fi is included.

The sounds of birds and frogs, the occasional bunny or fox, hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies—these are welcome distractions in this quiet Mendocino setting. In town, barely a 5-minute drive away, you’ll find shops, restaurants, galleries, and various seasonal cultural offerings. From there, wend your way to the headlands, where you’ll look onto the dramatic glory of the Pacific Ocean. And at night, you’ll behold stars as you've rarely seen them.

An easily accessible Level 2 car charger is available for your hybrid or electric car.

Babies up to the age of 3 months are welcome, as long as we discuss this before you book. Please send me an inquiry and I'll respond very quickly. The suite is spacious enough for a crib, however it isn't childproofed for a tiny one who is at all mobile. Please contact me before booking to discuss details.

Please note: The 11% Mendocino County Bed Tax is included in the room rate.

Guest access
You are invited to wander around the 3-acre property, pick apples and blackberries when in season, and sit on the deck, mesmerized by the birds, overlooking two ponds, a flower-filled garden, and a sweeping, tree-lined meadow. We often work in the garden in the early afternoon, and have a very low-key presence.

Mendocino, California, United States

This is a peaceful residential neighborhood with tree-lined roads. Located just beyond the first fog line, it's often sunny here when it's still foggy in town.

I'm a longtime Mendocino resident who has lived on this property for 30+ years. With its heirloom apple orchard, colorful flower garden, 2 ponds, and an old farmhouse on 3 acres, it's a comfortable and welcoming place to call home. For over 20 years, I owned Cafe Beaujolais in this lovely town, which showed me how hospitality and a generosity of spirit can create a deeply meaningful experience for everyone involved. Since 2011, hosting guests has been my way to continue along this path, and I’ve loved it! I speak some French, German and Spanish.

During your stay
I'm usually in town when guests stay, although most days I'm at work from early on. My guests tend to be independent and enjoy the privacy of this beautiful property. I've had many fun conversations with those who have wished to connect with me, and am happy to offer recommendations for places to visit, to hike, and to eat.
I’m available by text 24/7.
