Property description

An historic saltbox, located on the water's edge within the tiny community of Westport, this home has been an observation point for the splendor of the Pacific for more than 100 years. The charming interior has the beautifully maintained look and feel of Mendocino history with modern appointments to keep you snug and comfortable.

The thundering Pacific breaks against the rocks for an awe-inspiring view of hazy layers of sea mist swirling around rocky islands. Westport is nestled against coastal hills, rolling off to join the distant shadowy curve of the mysterious Lost Coast. Some 20 minutes north of Fort Bragg and a stroll away from miles of secluded beaches along the rocky shoreline, enjoy fishing, biking, horseback riding, State Parks, and sunset views in this easygoing comfortable atmosphere.

A rustic hamlet on the Mendocino Coast about 18 miles north of Fort Bragg, Westport is one of the last vestiges of civilization before State 1 turns inland. At the end of a winding, often cliff-hugging drive up the highway from Fort Bragg, Westport greets you with two dozen homes, one standard-issue motel, a now its-open-now-its-not lounge and hotel, and a tiny market with a couple of gas pumps.
