The home sleeps a maximum of 5 comfortably in 2 queen-size beds and a full-size sofabed with Simmons mattress. Bedside reading lamps, electric blankets, and down comforters are provided, foam or down pillows are available.

Within a half-hour drive is the charming village of Mendocino with its quaint shops and excellent restaurants, you can easily drive east to enjoy an afternoon of wine tasting in beautiful Anderson Valley or south to visit Pt. Arena's beautiful lighthouse and fascinating exotic animal preserve.
