By the month, this is a superb choice for the student coming to the Living Light or Fine Woodworking programs. Located within easy walking distance of downtown Fort Bragg in one of the well established, older neighborhoods.
This is a quiet, private room suitable for two people. It is surrounded by a garden view and receives sun into the afternoon. Furnishings include a desk, a comfy chair, a double bed, reading lamps, chest of drawers and large closet. The double bed is outfitted with cotton flannel, polar fleece or cotton/bamboo sheets. In winter, down or down alternative duvets keep you warm. We also provide cotton towels, robes and slippers.
If you are planning to be here for more than a few days, you will have your own counter and cabinet in the kitchen supplied with cutting boards, knives, dishes, bowls, cups and cooking utensils. In the large fridge you will have your own shelves for storage.
The nearby bathroom is roomy with a large tub and great shower.
Basic amenities include WiFi, laundry, commodious double bed, comfortably furnished for all basic needs. The neighborhood is totally safe and there is easy parking right next to the house.
The house is a Craftsman style bungalow from the turn of the century and we think it is more than 100 years old. It is built of virgin redwood and was built as a bride gift by a father to his daughter.
For the last 20 years, I have been an artist/craftswoman living on the Mendocino Coast. For years, I lived and worked here to produce my handwoven apparel. Now, I enjoy having guests who are busy and adventuresome. I like making sure everyone has a great time. This is a great community and perfect for people who like making art, food or otherwise appreciating our stunningly beautiful landscape.
WiFi, easy parking, large fenced yard, kitchen and cooking facilities available, shared bathroom.
The house can be divided into two separate, private living areas.
In summer, the front porch and back yard are perfect for a lazy moment.
Interaction with Guests
Privacy is primary at the Bungalow. Guests have separate private use of the bedroom and the bathroom/kitchen areas are shared. The guest bedroom is situated at one end of the house. The rest of the house is the private residence of myself, the owner.
I am a busy designer and don't expect to spend time with guests except maybe at morning coffee or and evening meal.
This is one of the older neighborhoods in Fort Bragg. It is safe enough to walk most times of night or day. There is a tiny ocean view from the front of the house. When the weather is warm, Osprey can be heard overhead as they head out to sea for fishing.
Walking, biking are perfect for this little town.
Very limited public transportation.

Adriane was really present when I arrived and welcomed me very nicelly. The bedroom was as described. And the environnement is nice and safe, and very convenient for people who go to Living Light Institute.
I felt very welcomed by Adriane , her home is beautiful and the room comfortable and peaceful. I stayed a week over Xmas and was able to do many things on the Mendocino coast from there.
Adriane is a very nice host and I felt very welcome on the day of my arrival. The house is conveniently located close to one of the bus stops so no problem at all. Also on walking distance to Living Light School which was prefect for me. The room was very homey, comfortable bed, a cozy place to rest and a desk perfect for work. Overall I felt very much at home and Adriane is a fantastic woman who respects privacy if that's needed, but also sits on many interesting stories and experiences that I found very inspiring. We had some good talks and that's probably what I will remember most about staying with her. Would definitely stay here again if I go back to Fort Bragg.
I had a great experience staying with Adriane. My room was clean and comfortable, and the bed was wonderful. The location is perfect -- an easy walk to downtown Fort Bragg.
The home was a beautifully restored craftsman and my room was perfect, comfortable bed, clean, effortless. The location was great as I was able to walk to the College of the Redwoods Fine Furniture Woodshop for classes. Adriane was a great host, very cool to chat with and super accommodating.
I stayed at Adriane's and her lovely cat's beautiful and charming house for almost 2 months and I enjoyed a great time. A lot of redwood, relaxing colors and nice decoration made me feel very relaxed and comfortable in this house. I had a great bed, large and comfortable matress and exclusive beding.... I slept heavenly.... Enough place to range all my things. Good lighting. Friendly and calm calm neighborhood, only a 10 minutes-walk away from the sea and the Living Light Institute.
Adriane let me feel as a "co-owner" of the house which made my stay at Fort Bragg very special in the good sense: i felt like I would live there and not "only" be a guest. Adriane was for me like a wise and good friend. She respected when I needed my time for myself. But she was always there to help me when I had questions about life in Fort Bragg or the US - being Swiss and doing not know much about the US I appreciated this very much. As Adriane knows the Mendocino coast very well she was also able to advice me what to do and what to avoid.
If I will return to Living Light Institute I certainly will stay at Adriane's house again.
The reservation was canceled 40 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

Artist and craftswoman living and working creatively on the beautiful California Coast. I walk daily along the coastal trails and beaches. I garden, share community with friends, paint, draw, weave and read. I wish to foster a peaceful, creative life for myself and my friends. I live with my cat and share the property with my husband of 25 years who is a photographer. I've traveled and stayed in other peoples homes when I was a craftsperson doing shows in distant cities. The people I have kept as friends were the ones I shared meals with. A sense of humor is essential as is a relaxed, philosophical approach to life. I have a Master's degree in Textiles from Philadelphia University. I'm native to Northern California.
