Fort Bragg house description

The Bird's Nest, located just north of Fort Bragg in the small town of Cleone, is a perfect location for a peaceful getaway. Enjoy bird watching for a variety of birds, such as hawks, osprey and quail. Add in an outstanding night sky for stargazing lovers and neighborhood deer that visit the meadow, and you are sure to have a memory filled couples or family vacation!

The Bird's Nest is within a quick and easy driving distance to the town of Fort Bragg, where you can browse the many boutique shops for local treasures, enjoy a pint at the legendary North Coast Brewing Company, catch the Skunk Train for a leisurely ride through the redwoods, or enjoy local fare at one of the many restaurants or cafes.

You will also be minutes away from beautiful MacKerricher State Park, famous for its white water surf, big sandy beach, sea lion colony, sand dunes, trails for hiking and biking, as well as a wheelchair-accessible nature trail.

Ricochet Ridge Ranch is located on the same street as the Bird's Nest. Pay them a visit for horseback rides on the beach, daily trail rides, or customized riding holidays.

For the avid fisherman/woman and angler, nearby Lake Cleone is stocked with fish for a leisurely afternoon of quiet fishing. For a bigger catch, you can hop on a fishing boat at nearby Noyo Harbor for salmon or crabbing tours.

The charming town of Mendocino is just a short distance South of the Bird's Nest. Situated right on the bluffs, Mendocino is a picture-perfect coastal village. Enjoy the ocean views while walking down Main Street, stopping to enjoy some gourmet chocolate, homemade jams/jellies, local wine, delicious food or one of the many art galleries in town.

For the wine lover, don't miss Pacific Star winery, located on an incredible ocean bluff just north of the Bird's Nest. Nearby Anderson Valley makes a great day trip for wine tasting with scenic views. Some of the notable wineries include Roederer (famous for their sparkling wine), Navarro Vineyards and Winery, Husch Vineyards and Lazy Creek Vineyards.

The Bird's Nest is a contemporary home with modern amenities, artwork, custom tile, a breakfast/BBQ deck and a large well-kept meadow, perfectly suited for family fun or just to relax in the sunshine. Well-behaved pets will surely enjoy a romp through the grass as well!

Inside, large windows lend a bright, open ambience with pleasing views from every room. At night, coziness sets in, thanks to a warm glass front fireplace just begging to be curled up in front of with a good book, a glass of wine, a movie, or someone special after a perfect day!

You will find 2 comfortable bedrooms with queen beds in each. In one bedroom, the bed can be separated into two twins. There is also a twin daybed in the great room, so the sleeping capacity is for 5. There are two full bathrooms with your choice of bath or shower, as well as a washer/dryer on premesis. The kitchen is fully equipped with a refrigerator, stove, microwave, dishwasher, cookware and serveware.

The Bird's Nest is managed by a local property management company, whose staff is available to assist you with any questions that may arise.

Thank you for visiting our webpage and considering our home for your vacation. You won't be disappointed in this coastal gem!

              Manager info

              About: Our family has been enjoying vacations to the Fort Bragg/Mendocino area for generations. My Grandmother and Grandfather started going there when there were still unpaved roads and Mendocino was a sleepy secret destination. My father and his siblings spent summers here in their youth, fishing and surfing. In turn, my cousins and I spent our summer vacations camping at Van Damme or Russian Gulch State Parks. With the recent addition of our year-old daughter, our family is now on our 4th generation enjoying the rugged beauty of the Mendocino coast.

              Why Fort Bragg:
              My father fulfilled his childhood dream of building a home in Fort Bragg in 1999. Building the house was a labor of love, with my father drawing the initial plans, installing the custom tilework, my uncle working on the plumbing, and a family friend finishing the cabinets. My mother and father bought the empty property in Cleone many years earlier, turning a wild meadow into the Bird's Nest with sweat, tears and love over many summers.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The quiet natural beauty of the property is its best feature. We love to look for deer coming onto the property in the wee morning hours. We also love to listen for the cries of hawks circling overhead and to pet the friendly horses that live next door. On clear nights, the entire Milky Way can be seen from the porch, and the ocean can be heard gently crashing in the distance. When we venture into town, we enjoy going to the North Coast Brewing Company for custom beer and delicious food. Headlands Coffee House is a great local stop for a cup of coffee and yummy baked goods. We enjoy going to Mendocino town and sampling the jams/jellies, chocolates and wine. We also like to get a picnic and spend the day at Big River beach, which is perfect for families and pets. MacKerricher State Park is a must; every visit, we walk the scenic boardwalk out to the bluffs, and watch the sea lion colony sunning themselves on the rocks. At night, after a long lazy day, we like to go to the Purple Rose Mexican restaurant at the opposite end of the street from the Bird's Nest. They have delicious homemade fare, including my favorite chile rellenos anywhere! Lots of nights, we like to rent a movie from the well-stocked family video store in Ft. Bragg, and cozy up with a gourmet pizza from Piaci's Pizza and Pub. Or curl up on the cozy couch with a good book. Whether the weather is sunny or rainy, we just enjoy the peacefulness and tranquility of our little house in the woods.
