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.

Beautiful location and Marilyn is a great host. There's a beautiful green house on the to floor where you can sit, talk, and stare at the stars.

We stayed as a family in Marilyn's top floor using both rooms and would highly recommend this place for families. The highlight is definitely the yurt where you can while away many playful hours. If you are lucky enough to chat with Marilyn she is a fountain of knowledge about many soulful things. You may even want to book a creative session with her or you may simply want to be in the space and enjoy her amazing art studio and library of soulful books. Unique places like this is what airbnb is about.

Marilyn's home is a paradise in Mendocino County. It's close enough to town yet far enough removed to offer the visitor solitude and peace. The surroundings on 7 acres of wooded ground are wonderful. If you are a nature lover this is a paradise. Marilyn has tastefully decorated her home with antiques and has provided everything you need for comfort and safety. I enjoyed soaking in the large clawfoot tub as well as soothing my aching bones in the hot tub outside. The dining area has a refrigerator coffeemaker microwave and plenty of dishes. Their granola was a welcome treat as was the coffee, milk, and half-and-half. She also provided cereal for breakfast. There are also lots of plants which make the house very homey. I love the architecture of this home. I plan to return to this wonderful Airbnb for another fantastic experience.

This property was recommended to us by friends who had stayed here before and we weren't disappointed. The gardens and labyrinth are glorious and we had so much fun in Marilyn's wonderful yurt. One of the best Airbnb listings we have stayed in and we hope to come back again.

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.
