Property description

Get away to the Mendocino coast. Tides Turn has a private view of the ocean, yet is a home with lots of room to share with friends or family. We have installed solar panels to help preserve our wonderful California coast and o our part to reduce global warming. Located next to the turn of the century hamlet of Albion only minutes from the charming Victorian town of Mendocino, 7 miles north. Enjoy the birds floating on the updrafts or the boats coming and going as the tides change below. Watch the everchanging sea through the only wooden trestle bridge on the coast of California as the waves crash in the cove and the whales pass during migration season. Relax in the hot tub or barbeque on the deck. Mendocino has a lot to offer. Investigate the tons of drift wood at nearby Navarro beach just 3 miles south, or picnic in the Redwoods or bring a canoe or kayak to explore the Albion River or go wine tasting in Anderson Valley or try the trails at Van Damme State Park & Beach, 3.5 miles north. You can treat yourself to our local restaurants, the best on the coast - the Ledford House or the Albion River Inn or rundown to the Albion Market and deli for a quick fix or Harvest Market in Fort Bragg can deliver all you need to Tides Turn in Albion.?

This conformable 4 bedroom split level home with one King and three Queens beds plus a Queen futon in the family room, 2 bathrooms, master bedroom lavatory, large open style kitchen/dining/living room, plus a large separate family room with satellite TV, sunroom, two decks and spa. Celestron Binoculars and tripod for viewing birds and whales and waves.
