Mendocino house description

House in the Redwoods, at the Redwood Forest Ranch, is located on a beautiful, private, remote 400-acre valley Ranch at the end of the road. One mile of the wild and scenic Noyo River runs through the property. This was our family home for 10 years until we upgraded to a new home. We are located halfway between Willits and Fort Bragg near the Skunk Train Line. We're far away from people and cars; deer and other wildlife roam freely and without fear. You'll find pristine mountain air to breathe; as well as fresh, clean, spring water to drink, soothing sounds, and stars bright enough to touch. There are 400 private, unspoiled acres for your enjoyment with 5 miles of hiking trails. This relaxing and private atmosphere makes this vacation destination a very special place. Privacy, seclusion and natural beauty makes this property unique in the vacation rental world. The house is rustic in character but is completely set up for house keeping and has most of the amenities for comfortable living. Toilet, shower, gas and electric lights, , gas stove with oven, gas refrigerator, wood stove - firewood provided, solar shower for summer use.


(Specifically, gas stove with oven, electric lights, refrigerator, toilet and shower, wood stove with wood provided, etc.) Please call or email for specifics if you would like more information. Remoteness, privacy and beauty of nature are its primary features. Blankets, pillows, and comforters are provided. Bring your own food, sleeping bags or sheets, towels, and personal gear. Please include your flashlights.

Permissions: Pets-ASK - Smoking-ASK - Children-OK

What is being offered is unique and not to be found anywhere for its isolation, beauty of its natural, mountain forest scenes, privacy, and a magnificent river to swim in that goes through the middle of the property.
It is a place for a family or couples and friends to experience quality time together without distractions and become a part of nature. A learning experience especially if you choose to take the free tour of the ranch and the forest on 'Little Buddy'.
