Fort Bragg house description

Quail Ranch is a very private, dog friendly and quiet place for those seeking comfort and serenity but also just minutes from shopping, galleries and restaurants in Fort Bragg and Mendocino. Relax on the back deck with a drink while viewing the lake, ocean and mountains. Quail Ranch is paradise!

This is a two bedroom, one and one-half bathroom, single story, beautifully decorated home in western style. There are thick, luxurious mattresses on the 2 queen beds. And there is a also a new, very comfortable sleeper chair in the living room for one person. The interior features Mexican and southwestern decor and furniture, including the oil paintings and other artifacts.

There's a dishwasher, double oven, washer/dryer, woodstove, central heat, HDTV, DVD, CD, Wireless Internet with Cable Modem . There's a 2 car, attached garage, private front courtyard, completely fenced and gated with table, chairs and chiminea. Wide furnished decks wrap around the back and side. The ranch style house sits on 3 acres of woods and gardens with a bubbly creek running through it.

This is a perfect place to bring your well behaved dog since the property is completely enclosed by fences. So you can walk your dog, free of a leash, except in the State Park.

The property borders Mackerricher State Park and Lake Cleone, with a short path leading to the nature trail that winds around the lake and to the ocean beach, just a few minutes away. Quail Ranch is less than a quarter of a mile from Horse rental and boarding stables.

Lake Cleone is stocked with bass and trout and has a launch ramp for small motorless boats, i.e., rowboats, kayaks, canoes and sailboats. River otters may entertain you with their comical water antics and their love for play. Many egrets, blue heron and osprey may be observed while hiking around the beautiful nature trail that winds around the lake and to the ocean.

Mackerricher State Park boasts its pristine, uncrowded, sandy beaches, magnificent cliffs and waves of wildflowers. Shorebirds galore feed along the 10 miles of beach that stretch north of Fort Bragg to 10 Mile River. The boardwalk to Laguna Point will provide an easy walk out to observe the Harbor seals, snoozing on the rocks or feeding in the ocean at the end of the pier. If the time is right, you may also see whales during their migration. Cormorants and Oystercatchers and many other seabirds are plentiful to view.

                    We stayed at Quail Ranch over New Years and had a wonderful time. Nancy is delightful, very helpful but non-intrusive. The home is beautifully decorated in a Santa Fe theme including the owner's paintings which are amazing. Because of the 2 bedrooms with a queen bed in each it is perfect for 2 couples. The home is well equiped for relaxing and for cooking. We brought our hound dog with us who enjoyed the freedom of exploring the fenced grounds, a rare event for her. The trail to the beach is easy walking and the beach has a nice boardwalk with lookouts, tidepools, and great photo ops. We spent most of our time at the house or on the beach but did go into Fort Bragg for grocery shopping, Safeway & Harvest Market (their local version of Whole Foods), and ate at the Nort Coast Brewing-OK but overpriced & did take-out pizza from Piaci's because we could get a seat (very small), the pizza was excellent.

                    Recommended for: Adventure seekers, families with young children, pet owners, age 55+.

                    Dear Nancy We are grateful we had a chance to share this magical Spot on this miraculous planet, even for a brief time. You have created a wellcoming, comforting space, from your engaging artwork to the enveloping furniture to the lovely grounds. FOR DOG LOVERS, we recommend Ten Mile Beach up the coast a few miles and Lulu and Toulouse Wineries in Philo. Great wine, fun people and dog friendly. And for take-out supper, we recommend Piaci in Fort Bragg. Elegant piazzas, delicious Mac and cheese. Also a great place for long walks with dog, plus a visual feast: Mendocino Botanical Gardens south of Fort Bragg. We spent half a day wandering the trails. Enjoy!!

                    Our first visit to your wonderful Quail Ranch. Four days is not enough! We so enjoyed your delightful home and all your paintings and unique furnishings. We enjoyed the beaches, the town and the trails, but mainly preferred the comfort, quiet and relaxation of your home.thank you so much for your hospitality, the zucchini and tomatoes. Ginger and Charlie loved playing with your dogs. We hope to come again.

                    Thank you for the wonderful return visit. We enjoyed doing things we didn't get to last year and have some things we want to do next year. The house and grounds are as beautiful as ever and this area can't be beat for recreation. I enjoyed the most beautiful sunset last night over the ocean from the beach. I'll hold on to that memory until next year. Many thanks.

                    Dear Nancy We stayed a week at Quail Ranch after our family vacation to the West. After visiting Southern California, Arizona. Nevada and the Sierra Nevada, it is clear that your house recognizes the heritage of the American West. With the barrenness of Death Valley, still in recent memory, we particularly appreciated the beauty of your multiple gardens. They stand as a tribute to the gardener. As Thomas Jefferson wrote, the "cultivators of the earth" are the most virtuous of citizens. Your piece of paradise on the Pacific provided a welcome respite. We are refreshed and ready for home and the days that lie ahead.
