Mendocino cabin description

Cabin in the Redwoods 
Mendocino County, California

Cabin in the Redwoods is being offered by the Redwood Forest Institute, a 501-c-3, California for Public Benefit Organization providing the opportunity for visitors to have the option of enhancing their vacation experience with tours of the property, and an educational experience. The fee includes housing and is a tax-deductible charitable contribution to this non-profit organization.                 

Call for more information.

The property where you will be staing is unique and not to be found anywhere for its isolation, beauty of its natural, mountain forest scenes, privacy, and a magnificent river to swim in that goes through the middle of the property.  

It is a place for a family or couples and friends to experience quality time together without distractions and become a part of nature. A learning experience especially if you choose to take the free tour of the ranch and the forest on 'Little Buddy'.

Cabin in the Redwoods, at the Redwood Forest Ranch, is a two-bedroom, one-bath A-frame with loft, located on a beautiful, private, 400-acre forest ranch at the end of the road with one mile of the wild and scenic Noyo River running through it.

We are located halfway between Willits and Fort Bragg. We're far away from people and cars; deer and other wildlife walk around freely and unafraid. You'll find pristine mountain air to breathe, as well as clean spring water to drink, soothing sounds, and stars bright enough to touch. There are 400 private, unspoiled acres for your enjoyment with 5 miles of hiking trails.

Access is year around, 10 miles off highway, on a gravel logging road, 1 1/2 hr drive to the giant redwoods, the town of Mendocino, and the Pacific Ocean.

Bring your own food, sleeping bags or sheets, towels, and personal gear. Blankets, pillows, and comforters are provided. Please include your flashlights.

On-Property Attractions
Five miles of hiking trails to mountain ridges and through deep redwood canyons. Swimming holes in the Noyo River, back road biking. Skunk Train Ride available: 1/2 day trips through the Redwoods from the ranch to Fort Bragg. Property features unusual privacy and seclusion by its remoteness and park like natural atmosphere.

Rustic but with most all creature comforts provide. There is a gas cooking range with oven, refrigerator, complete bathroom with shower, percolator coffee maker, wood stove with wood provided, hiking/biking back roads, volley ball, badminton, bocci ball, tour of self-sufficient farm, and more.
