22 private acres, all yours to ramble and play. Completely off-grid power provided by solar and generator, plenty of hot water for shower and kitchen. There are about 8 acres of meadow, the rest is sloping redwood forest. Quiet, lush, gorgeous. The cabins are close to one of the property lines (so be mindful of noise), and there are neighbors around, but with no view of your area (full privacy), and plenty of woods.
Area: 4 miles south of the town of Point Arena. Point Arena has a fishing port and dock, pubs, well-stocked grocery and theater. 15 minutes south is the town of Gualala -- full fishing and beach access, restaurants, groceries, and freshwater activities up the Garcia river. The property is minutes away from the very private beaches of Bowling Ball and Schooner Gulch. 40 minutes up Rt 1 coast to the town of Mendocino - a great day trip!
Pets are very welcome - clean up after them!. Bring your own sheets/towels (no laundry service), though we can provide those with advanced notice (fee per set). No garbage service - pack in, pack out.
We can provide chopped and split firewood fireside for your use, from a local sustainably managed preserve, $75 for 1/4 cord seems to be ample for most people. Otherwise, BYO - no chopping of trees or damage to the forest is permitted.
We are happy to share our quite getaway with you! Its a work in progress and we are upgrading the facilities - your stay will help us improve it. Thank you!
