Located on 10 private acres of meadows and redwood forest a short drive off the highway, the land is vibrant with deer and birds large and small. This is a peaceful place to relax and recharge. Wine tasting is close by at Anderson Valley's oldest family-owned wineries specializing in Pinot Noir, Alsace varietals, and the best sparkling wines produced in the US. A lovely short drive through the redwoods brings you to the bluffs and beaches of the Mendocino Coast. Nearby Hendy Woods State Park has two groves of ancient redwoods and access to the Navarro River as well as miles of trails, some of which are available for bicycles. Generally pleasant climate year round at the Navarro end of Anderson Valley with coastal breezes without much fog.
Arts and crafts studios and shops nearby. A wide variety of organic food is available locally in season, and a weekend Farmer's Market has everything from olive oil to hand blown glass beads, not to mention the freshest fruits and vegetables.
The cabin is clean, airy, and recently remodeled with a queen bed in the loft and a newly tiled bathroom. The loft windows look out on the redwoods. It's like sleeping in a tree house--but much more comfy! A pleasant place to stay any time of the year. The sunny front deck overlooks a meadow and the back balcony is a shady place to catch the afternoon breezes. The second bed, which is in the living area, is a chair that pulls out to a comfortable platform single bed. A futon for the floor is available, but it's a bit crowded with four people.
Convenient to SF Bay Area, about 2.5 hours from Golden Gate Bridge.
What a perfect getaway! We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this beautiful cabin. Kathy was a joy to work with, the cabin was clean, beautifully decorated, and a perfect escape from the city. We would highly recommend disconnecting and spending a few nights in here.
The Cabin in the Meadow is very cute. I spent the weekend there with my wife and we absolutely loved this quiet oasis. Kathy has been very helpful and responsive and a great host. We hope to stay there again some time.
A great semi-secluded cabin. A lot of quiet and privacy, and yet only a 5 minute drive to the nearby Anderson Valley wineries. Highly recommeded for a relaxing weekend away. Cabin is extremely clean / taken care of, and it has everything you need to feel at home.
We drove up to Mendocino on a critical search for rest and relaxation, and the Cabin in the Meadow delivered both in spades. Centered around a blooming white cherry blossom tree and surrounded by redwoods, Kathy's property was a welcome reminder of what nature can do for overworked urbanites. As for the cabin itself, the photos do not do it justice-- it's cozy, clean, warm, unfussy and perfect for two.
The little towns of Philo and Boonville are just close enough so that if you forgot something, or feel like grabbing coffee or dinner out, you can easily make the drive into town.
