About this listing
The house is a well preserved Craftsman Bungalow built of Old Growth Redwood in the heart of Fort Bragg's older neighborhood.
This quiet, eco-friendly home is perfect for long-term students of the nearby Mendocino Art Center, Fine Woodworking School and Pacific Textile Arts.

This is a quiet, private room suitable for two people. It is surrounded by a garden view and receives sun into the afternoon.

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.
Respect the cost of utilities, time of use for electric appliances applies. Short showers (California is in a drought and water is limited), turning off heaters and lights when not in use is greatly encouraged.
"Sharing the house manners" are a must.
We all are hard working people so quiet is the rule.
We clean up after ourselves in the kitchen and bathroom. No dirty dishes in the sink, clean hair out of bathroom drains when finished washing, leave shoes at entrance.
Sanitary disposal of personal products is a must.
Respect and consideration of the private property you have been invited to use is appreciated.
Otherwise, a friendly smile and greeting make it all work.
We prefer that guests do not take items to use away from the house without asking host. These include towels, cooking and eating utensils, coffee mugs.
Some flexibility around children if they are diapered while indoors or have their own mattress for sleeping,
and are able to sleep through the night.
Some flexibility around small pets if they are kept in a crate while indoors and taken off the property for elimination needs.
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.
