Interaction with Guests
As often as preferred. It's really up to the guest(s) and timing. Privacy is respected above all. Each bedroom has it's own lock. Owner occupied.
We are two blocks from the ocean, one block from the movie theater, three blocks from Old Town Fort Bragg.
1. Whales! The annual migration of the California gray whale begins in December and peaks in the winter months.
2. No crowds. On a winter day in Fort Bragg, there’s no waiting in line; not for a coffee, not for lunch, not for a parking space.
3. Walks. Whether it is along the ocean, in the redwoods or just down to the beach, there’s a walk for everyone. This house is walking distance to Glass Beach, located at the north end of town.
4. Crab! Boats are bringing fresh Dungeness crab into Noyo Harbor daily (in season). You can enjoy the delectable and seasonal treat in our local restaurants, or pick up one in the harbor or at a local grocer.
5. Waterfalls. A short walk through Otis Johnson Park or at Russian Gulch State Park and you can visit the magic of winter in the woods.
6. Mushrooms. Wild mushroom season is not limited to the fall months. Whether you forage or just hunt with a camera, there is still plenty of natures bounty to capture. You will see oyster, yellowfoot, black trumpet, candy caps and more, just look down along the edges of our roads and trails. Once you have the “mushroom eye” you will never look at the woods in the same way again.
7. Deals! Depending on the time of year.
8. Quiet! Did we say this was the quiet time of year? Other than the booming of the surf or the staccato tempo of the rain on the roof, there’s nothing to disturb the peace. After the hustle and bustle of the holidays, there’s nothing we like more.
9. Waves. Did we mention the spectacular winter surf in Fort Bragg? King tides and storm swells from the north Pacific combine to bring some of the most awe-inspiring ocean views you can imagine. Of course, watch from a safe distance and never turn your back on the ocean.
10. Sunsets! Winter is sunset season on the Mendocino Coast, and Fort Bragg is no exception. Night after night of ever-changing rainbows. See if you can spot the elusive “green flash” or better yet, catch it with your camera. Fort Bragg has it's own website. Since Airbnb prohibits URL's in descriptions, please use a search engine to find the many links for detailed information about this area.
Although I recommend using your personal helicopter or jet if you need to get up here fast :P (there is, actually, a "private airstrip" for those aircraft up here)....it's not practical for most of us..... driving north, from SF or that area, several routes are usually open.... Highway 101 to Cloverdale, taking the turn-off to Fort Bragg (Hwy 128) takes you on a sometimes curvy but scenic drive through Anderson Valley (many wineries), Boonville and through the thick redwood groves to eventually you see the ocean and Highway 1...you will pass the beautiful village of Mendocino, which is only 10 miles south of Fort Bragg. Other routes, for the more intrepid, could be following the Russian River route to Hwy 1, eventually bringing you to Hwy 128 and near Mendocino (10 mi south of Fort Bragg)... this is a much longer drive but the most scenic. Or, another way is to just follow 101 north past Ukiah to the town of Willits, turn left (West, of course) on Hwy 20 and get ready to cross the Coastal Range in an often slow, switch back road, leading directly into Fort Bragg... it's only 35 or so miles but a tough drive for first-timers. There are a few backways routes as well best left to the more adventurous...ask me or, I'm sure the info is online.
Please Google "How to get to Fort Bragg from any direction"
...since Airbnb censors all URLs, phone numbers and addresses until after a booking is confirmed - Google or use another online search for the info. Fort Bragg has its own website with many valuable links.
MTA (Mendocino Transit)
1 shuttle per morning ( 7:10am in front of this place) that goes south to Santa Rosa, through Willits, Hopland, Cloverdale and the Santa Rosa Airport (flights to SF and elsewhere).

Skunk Train to Willits (begins July 1st).
Sorry I cannot provide you with links here but once you book I will send you all the information you need, :)
Other Things to Note
There is something to see and do year-round. July-October are the busiest months in Fort Bragg. November-June usually features fewer visitors. So when is the best time to visit? Anytime! Off months can be great with welcoming weather and quieter streets while prime time is host to lots of events and festivals.
If you arrive in Fort Bragg before 9pm (later on Fri and Sat) and you are hungry, I personally recommend Piaci's ...for excellent Italian inspired food/pizzas/calzones/salads/and a plethora of beers on tap, some you have probably never heard of ....tell them Randy from Cosmo's Lost Coast Hostel sent you...
Abalone diving, sport fishing, whale-watching, kayaking, mountain trails, beach trails, canoeing, swimming with many summer events such as the Mendocino Music Festival, Big Salmon Feed, Crab Feed and more! Other popular festivals going on throughout the area.
No parties or illegal drugs or outside guests. No smoking inside. No pets, sorry! If I'm not home, I can almost always be reached by phone (phone number hidden until after booking) for any issues or questions. Quiet after 10pm.....kitchen available for storing food and light cooking - please wash any dishes and pans used. Have a good, fun, relaxing, stressless stay! That's an order!
