Fort Bragg cottage description

Mendocino Coast Dunes is a short, six mile drive from downtown Fort Bragg. It is set in the heart of MacKerricher State Park, famous for its white water surf, big sandy beach, sea lion colony, sand dunes and many trails for hiking and biking. A short walk down our private trail gets you to the start of MacKerricher State Park and then it is a 10-30 minute just short of one half mile walk across the dunes to “Ten Mile Beach” with its breathtaking views of the Pacific coastline. Inglenook Creek empties into the ocean here and is a safe enjoyable place for children to play

The Dune Flower is one of four homes available at the Mendocino Coast Dunes. This boutique cottage beach house has been remodeled to keep the look and feel of a classic beach house. Set in beautiful gardens, the Dune Flower is an open bedroom/living area, perfect for two wanting a cozy getaway to the beach. A gas-log fireplace keeps you warm on cooler North California nights. Access to the pristine dunes and beach of Mackerricher State Park is just a short walk via our private road. Pet friends are welcome with an additional deposit and “pet contract” pending approval prior to arrival.

Come enjoy this secluded property only minutes from downtown Fort Bragg, which offers additional activities, shopping and dining. Enjoy a pint at the legendary North Coast Brewing Company, catch the Skunk Train for a leisurely ride through the redwoods, and take a break from it all at one of the many restaurants or cafes Fort Bragg has to offer.

For the wine lover, don't miss Pacific Star Winery just right up the road a few miles. This winery is located on an incredible ocean bluff and offers many varietals of fine wines sure to please any pallet. Also makes a day trip through the majestic redwoods to wine tasting with scenic views in nearby Anderson Valley. Roederer (famous for their sparkling wine), Navarro Vineyards, Husch Vineyards and Lazy Creek Vineyards are just a few of the wineries that can all be easily visited in a day trip.

The charming town of Mendocino is also just a short distance south of Fort Bragg. Built on the rocky bluffs of the Pacific, Mendocino is a picture-perfect coastal village. Enjoy the panoramic ocean views while walking down Main Street. Check out the gourmet shops, local wines, delicious food, and the many art galleries in town.

The Dune Flower is perfect for that romantic away or a place for divers to hang their fins after a good Abalone hunt. Reserve all four Mendocino Coast Dunes homes for larger groups. All four homes are wheelchair accessible throughout. Rates listed for the Dune Flower are per TWO persons with a small fee for additional occupancy and pets (4 persons maximum, two night minimum). Owner maintained/managed for over 20 years.

Mendocino Coast Dunes is managed by a local property management company whose staff is available to assist you with any questions that may arise.
