About this listing

An idyllic location that is just up the hill from the town of Mendocino. Far enough away for quiet and privacy, close enough to get to any of the activities that interest you. A beautiful garden setting for one or two people who want to recharge.

The Space

Your stay one mile up the hill from the historic town of Mendocino begins in the garden suite of a private home on a quiet, tree-lined street. In the morning, you can view the apple orchard and the garden bursting with myriad flowers while enjoying the satisfying breakfast we provide during your stay—coffee, tea, cocoa, milk, freshly made granola, bread from a local bakery, yogurt, and organic fruit. You can sit on the deck at your private entrance to enjoy your breakfast, look out over the meadow and watch the many birds winging their way. And with the small refrigerator, microwave & toaster ovens, a French press and teapot in the suite, you can expand your eating options. In the bedroom, your comfort is ensured with a queen-size bed, an electric fireplace and 2 comfortable chairs in the seating area. A large closet offers you space to store your personal belongings.

This accommodation allows you privacy for a restful and restorative getaway. Yet the carpeted sunlight-filled studio also offers the perfect space to 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. Wi-fi is available, as well as an iPod/mp3 player.

The sounds of birds and frogs, the occasional bunny or baby fox, hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies—these are the distractions of this Mendocino setting. In town, just a 20-minute walk away, you’ll find shops, restaurants, and various cultural offerings, depending on the season. 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 may have never seen them. An aside: if you’re looking for property on the beautiful Mendocino coast, use this suite as your home base.

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

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.

I speak some French, German and Spanish.
