Mendocino cabin description

One of the sweetest, most delightful, and coolest cabins you will ever find (not just on the coast...anywhere!), the William and Mildred Suite is a two-room cabin perfect for a romantic -honeymoon or not- getaway.

The decor is entirely unique and tells the 1940s love story of William and Mildred, from their meeting at a Nebraska air force bar, through their long separation during WWII.

The living room/dining room recreates a vintage lounge with a funky camel bar (you must see it to believe it), a cushy comfortable - and convertible - sofa, a television with dvd player, gas fireplace, dining table/chairs, an cool "telephone table," old record player with era-appropriate records, and a small kitchenette (two burner stove, full size fridge, sink, counter, basic cooking equip, coffeemaker/coffee beans) with retro cookbooks for two. It's all set to a backdrop of 1940s menus, bar tabs, matchbooks, lounge photos, and a wall-sized classic cocktail lounge mural.

The adjoining bedroom will blow you away with William and Mildred's actual love letters, written daily (and sometimes twice or three times a day) over the course of two years during the war and right up until their wedding. Add a cozy gas fireplace, television with dvd player, huge posturpedic king bed, tons of pillows, high quality linens, and beautiful vintage fabrics throughout, and you'll be just as snug as can be.

The cabin has two bathrooms! Two! One has a fancy bubbly tub and the other has a rainy-type shower. Both are stocked with our yummy and earth-happy soap, shampoo, conditioner, and lotion - all in large dispensers (none of those silly little bottles here).

What else? Super cool old lamps. Your own deck with adirondack chairs and barbecue (free eco-coals). A magical hot tub steps away from your cabin. Badminton. Croquet. It's all swell!

The cabin is on five acres (along with our other cabins) in Little River - minutes away from everything - beaches, wineries, diving, hikes, Mendocino, breweries, good food.

If you stay on the weekend, and you can tear yourselves away from the cabin, stop into the lodge for happy hour: Fondue Fridays (typically, homemade gruyere fondue with apples, french bread, and mushrooms; pretzels and mendocino mustard; local beers and wines) and Sangria Saturdays (something like...homemade strawberry/peach sangria; local beers; chips and salsa; corn and chive blossom quesadillas; and sometimes even tamales!). Saturday and Sunday mornings we have toast bar in the lodge with locally baked breads, homemade apple butter, almond butter, olallieberry jam, coffee, tea and the New York Times.

If you're very lucky and you're here on a starry Saturday night, you won't want to miss our movies under the stars - a classic film projected on a sheet, plenty of blankets, popcorn, and (OF COURSE), the stars!

Plus, we think your pets are swell, so bring 'em along! We won "Beast of the Bay" for our unmatched pet amenities, like treats, space to play, special bedding, and have five acres of meadow and woods for playing. (Just $20 per pet per night.)

                            I also have rental property, so I appreciate the effort the owners put in to offer these things: Communications were prompt, friendly, welcoming, and efficient -- all you'd want at the planning phase. And the welcome was very warm, too -- both for me and for my dog. My little Cavalier and I stayed in Cabin 8, a comfortable one-room, queen bed cabin with a great desk, a nice bathroom, a little refrig, all as clean as can be. The deck and proximity to the hot tub were enjoyable, and the guests and dog next door were nice, too. Tough in this area, the wireless Internet service worked, even on my iPhone! I was taking classes at the Mendocino Arts Center, and I enjoyed the short drive back and forth, finding a nice Litte River deli with good prepared food. The property was nice for my morning and evening walks. I'll definitely keep this one in mind the next time I go to Mendocino. It was a great value for the price and the owners obviously put a lot into making it special. Thanks!

                            We loved our stay at the cabin. We have stayed at other places in mendocino before, but this one was much more affordable, yet I really enjoyed it much more. Where else can you get your own private cabin, yet be only 4 minutes from the Village? Also we truly loved the extra large spa in the woods. Really relaxing. And it was wss the perfect way to end the evening with watching a movie and eating a popcorn from our bed. They have a really great selection. Yes, we will be back!

                            We LOVED our vacation here! My husband and I were here for nearly a week after staying the first night in the owner's other nearby property called "Desire." The Serenity Cabin was ideal for our first visit to Mendocino; close to town (with amazing restaurants and shops|), a short drive to hiking and gardens. The owners suggested a bonfire on the beach, which was magical. The staff and owners gave us great information about where to dine, shop and sightsee, and we did it all. The close-by wineries are wonderful...less crowded, more personal than Napa or Sonoma. We plan to return, either just the two of us, or for a girlfriend's getaway or a family reunion. Just a spectacular home away from home. Did I mention the hot tub nestled in the woods?
