WELCOME TO FOR THE JOY OF IT! Creative Retreat
A quiet country retreat in the middle of the forest yet minutes from the town of Mendocino. Come enjoy the peace and quiet of the forest, hot tub under the stars, play in my yurt/art studio, and walk the labyrinth in the meadow. Wildlife sightings are possible from the solar greenhouse loft. You will be the only guests here unless you bring others and rent my other room. My place is nurturing and rejuvenating, unique and unforgettable!
No pets please. No drugs or smoking of any kind. Moderate drinking OK. No parties. No candles. It is fine if you need to arrive late. Just let me know ahead of time and we can make a plan for access to your room. Quiet time after 10. Hot tub hours vary with the season but usually available from 8 am - 9:30 pm. Thats not a rigid rule, its just that I sleep near the hot tub so need privacy at that end of the house later in the evening. Thanks.

I've lived in Mendocino and on this property for over 30 years. I raised my three sons here in the forest and then founded and run FOR THE JOY OF IT! Creative Arts Center. Aside from my vacation rentals, I offer creative retreats and have an expressive arts therapy practice. I teach people how they can use the arts for healing, self discovery and as spiritual practice. In my own creative life I paint, make art quilts, write and play the piano. I love nature and take myself out into it as often as possible.
