Where you’ll be

Mendocino, California, United States

Located at the end of a cul-de-sac in a very quiet private neighborhood. Waves can be heard crashing against the cliffs on calm nights seals and sea lions barks can be heard.
Just steps from the beach and the Russian gulch trail system. With direct private access to the park's trail system you can walk to the famous waterfall trail, view the stunning arch bridge over the sandy beach and calm water cove, take the north headlands trail to the churning 'devil's punch bowl', or hike the south trail into the redwoods where many old growth trees are still standing tall.
During the off season October - May you will likely have the beaches and trails to yourself. In the busier summer months you have private free access to the less traveled state park trails and zero parking issues to worry about.

The beach, coves, and bluff overlooks accessible on foot from the cabin are popular with kayaker, divers, whale watchers, fishermen. Russian Gulch is one of the most protected coves on the Mendocino Coast, it can provide some of the most clear and calm waters in Northern California when conditions are right.
