Fort Bragg cottage description

This quaint, cozy redwood cottage is located 2 miles north of the city of Fort Bragg, Ca. It is on a small country lane that borders MacKerricher State Park. It has a unique architectural style reminiscent of a Dutch-like cottage with a high vaulted ceiling. You will find your way up to the loft bedroom by way of a beautiful wooden spiral staircase. The bedroom has a queen-size bed, full dresser, and a large closet. There are opening skylights to let in the fresh ocean breeze. Downstairs you will find a living room that features a woodburning stove (for heat on those cool nights), a 42-inch flat screen Samsung TV with Blueray DVD player and a stereo HI/FI system. WI-FI is available for your computer use. There is an extensive DVD Library for your enjoyment including many of the Titles that have been filmed on the Mendocino Coast. It has a full bath, additional closet space and a stack washer/dryer. The kitchenette area is large and fully amended including a NuWave Oven and Portable Induction Cooktop. The Quail Cottage is ideal for those looking to enjoy a romantic getaway.

When you venture out the backdoor, you will find a private redwood deck with Hot tub, BBQ, and additional seating, both around the deck and by the firepit area. (Fire wood is provided for the evening campfire.) The grounds are nicely landscaped and maintained.

Directly across form this quaint cottage there is a path that leads to a State Park trail which circles beautiful Cleone Lake. The lake is stocked with trout, bass, and who knows what else. This provides access to the black sandy beaches at MacKerricher State Park, as well as an old logging road which allows the visitor to walk north to the expansive sand dunes of Ten Mile Beach, or south to the town of Fort Bragg. Along the way, you can reach many of the great tide-pooling spots and ultimately end up at Glass Beach, a favorite destination for many who come to the beautiful Mendocino Coast.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2003

          About the owner: The owner is an an active walker and enjoys sewing and crafts. She loves to garden, and enjoys the small town community of the north coast. Husband is a retired railroad employee, and also has been an avid sailor and surfer. Together, we also enjoy traveling the U.S. with our dog.

          Why the Owner Chose Fort Bragg:
          The property is in the most divine location...adjacent to the Cleone lake and the beach at MacKerricher State Park. The Quail Cottage is so adorable that it just has to be shared...a one of a kind, cozy space that just lent itself to being a vacation rental... a primary reason for having purchased here. We both enjoy the natural beauty of the woods and the ocean and love it's changes through the seasons.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          There is an easy and delightful walk to the beach, that goes through the woods and around the lake. It's a nature lovers dream come true...wildlife and gorgeous sunsets. The landscaping is beautiful at all times of the year and when the row of 20 or more rhododendrons bloom in early spring, it's a feast for the eyes. The quiet of the country setting is washed with the sounds of ocean waves.
