Our clean, cozy & quiet cottage is located on the Mendocino Coast just 1.5 miles from Pacific Ocean on 13 acres of gardens, meadows & redwood forests in a beautiful rural area, close to beaches, rivers, trails, Mendocino & Anderson Valley. The cottage includes a queen bedroom, bath tub & shower, kitchen, living room, deck with lounge chairs & BBQ, and on-property hammock, gardens, meadows & forests. Guests love the lush surroundings, peace & quiet-- an ideal retreat. Family- and LGBT-friendly.

The space
Our guest cottage is clean, cozy and quiet with a queen bedroom, tub & shower bathroom, small kitchen, a sun-filled living room (with 2 additional day-beds) and a sunny deck with BBQ and recliner chairs. No other houses are in sight (besides the owners' next door), hummingbirds, deer and wild turkeys frequent the meadow in front, nearby is a hammock and extensive flower and organic vegetable gardens that you're invited to lounge in, and at night what you usually hear most is the distant ocean surf.

Where you’ll be

Albion, California, United States

Our immediate rural neighborhood is explorable via paths thru our meadows and woods and by walking on Middle Ridge Road, a little-used, dead-end, paved country lane. The village of Albion is 5 miles away and has a little grocery with wine selection & deli, a post office, hardware store, ocean harbor, beach, boat rental and 2 restaurants. Seven miles up the coast from Albion is Mendocino-- a historically preserved coastal village and an art, wine and food lover's paradise. Seven miles further north is the larger town of Fort Bragg, with a large harbor, ocean fishing, whale-watching cruises, 25 restaurants, sand dunes, Botanical Gardens, and the historic Skunk Train. Forty miles inland from Albion are two virgin redwood preserves and 20 Anderson Valley wineries. Albion is great base for hiking, biking, kayaking and exploring the beautiful North Coast.

-My wife, Sharon Hansen, and I have lived in Albion on the Mendocino Coast for 40 years, arriving here in back-to-the-land communes. We've both involved in educating our kids then, environmental protection and restoration, progressive politics, music and culture. We love hiking in beautiful nature and to travel. We have done free home-exchanges with people in Vermont, Maine, England, Paris, southern France and Tuscany. So we know how wonderful it is for travelers to find a cozy, comfortable "home" while on the road and gracious hosts who happily help out while respecting the guests privacy.
