The space
***Please note that there may be guests staying in Headlands View Home during your stay. The Home is a detached building with its own private entrance. Home guests have access to the large deck that separates the two buildings. Cottage guests do not have access to the deck.***

Escape to this delightful hideaway and enjoy the best of two worlds - both Mendocino Village and Mendocino Headlands State Park are literally at your doorstep! Take a five-minute walk to a picturesque nearby beach, stunning cliff-side bluffs, or along the expansive state park just across the street. Or if you prefer, stroll five minutes in the other direction to quaint cafés, bakeries, boutiques, restaurants, and galleries.

Headlands View Cottage has its own pathway and private entrance and is the perfect destination for a romantic getaway or small family gathering. The Cottage is fully separate from Headlands View Home with a large deck between the two buildings (note that Cottage guests do not have access to any decks).

Downstairs you’ll find an inviting space that combines a kitchenette, living area, and dining area. The kitchenette includes a portable electric oven, a counter-top two-burner stove, microwave, mini-fridge, sink, and plenty of bowls, plates, and utensils for cooking and eating. It works great for preparing a memorable meal, storing/warming any delicious leftovers you might bring home from a nearby restaurant, or putting together quick snacks on the go. The dining table seats up to four. The gas fireplace keeps you warm while you snuggle up in the two luxurious recliner chairs or the sofa to read, watch TV, or simply take in the view in silence. The queen sofa sleeper downstairs comes complete with a comfy memory foam mattress.

A spiral staircase leads to a beautiful loft upstairs with a queen bed, built-in desk, and a gas wall heater. Two rocking chairs looking out over Mendocino Headlands State Park provide additional spaces to read, talk, doze, or quietly reflect.

What's nearby:
Welcome to Mendocino, the crown jewel of Mendocino County, which has been rated "Most Picturesque Town" by Sunset Magazine!

The nearby state parks include Van Damme State Park (two miles), Russian Gulch State Park (two and a half miles), and Jackson State Forest (19 miles), so don't hesitate to pack your most comfortable hiking shoes to explore them!

You’ll also find delicious eats at local cafes or restaurants including Good Life Cafe, Luna Trattoria, Cafe Beaujolais, and Patterson's Pub to name just a few! Outdoor enthusiasts will find endless, fun activities to try here such as whale watching, horseback riding, The Skunk Train, which offers railroad tours on a historic train leading through meadows and redwood forest, historic walking tours, and annual festivals.
