  • A Family Gathering To Celebrate The New Year

    "Fabulous! Our family of 15 celebrated the New Year during a period of 5 fun days at the Spring Ranch Victorian House. It is an amazing piece of historic property. We all enjoyed reading the available books to learn the history of the house and property with great interest. We loved cooking in the large kitchen and were able to produce some delicious gourmet meals with the excellent provided cookware. All of us were able to sit around the table in the large dining room. It was good the disherwasher worked well because we had to run it after each meal! The days were spent walking along the nearby coastline and we were able to spot whales bobbing out of the water in the distance. Wish we had brought binoculars with us. We also took drives to other nearby state parks to walk and view other parts of the beautiful coastline. In the evenings, we all enjoyed the large living room playing games, making music (we brought a keyboard and various string instruments) and reading. There are shelves of old books that avid readers of the family found most interesting read. The fire was roaring in the stone fireplace keeping us warm in the cool evenings. Some of the younger generation took advantage of using the hot tub and thought that was an added treat. Thanks for having a washer and dryer. There is no central heating but each bedroom has a portable heater which none of us used because we were all so comfortably warm sleeping under the excellent down comforters. We all slept quite well. This has been a fun and marvelous experience for our family and I highly recommend Spring Ranch for a tranquil vacation."

  • A True Cottage Experience

    "This is a lovely cottage. Surely this is what a French or English countryside cottage must be like. It is well kept, charmingly decorated, and peacefully romantic. It is very close to the village of Mendocino (minutes away) and not too far from Ft. Bragg should you require anything from stores like Safeway or CVS. The California coast is spectacular and state beaches are nearby. There are also numerous wineries within a short driving distance. If you are planning a trip to the area, I would recommend this cottage as your home base. Although I would consider the cottage as a destination in itself. We sat out in the garden with wine and cheese one afternoon. In the wee hours of the morning we went out to view the lunar eclipse and enjoyed the sound of the ocean in the still of the pre dawn hours. We played guitar by the fire in the evening and grilled steaks for a quiet dinner. Lastly, the added bonus is Mary. She is simply a gem--charming and hospitable. She adds little touches that are considerate and demonstrate her hospitality. Thank you for sharing this spot with us."

  • Beautiful, spacious, love the redwoods

    "We had a wonderful week's stay here. Cottage is very nicely equipped and convenient. It was a wonderful, affordable place to stay. We enjoyed getting away to the redwoods each evening. Easy drive into town. Sleeper sofa is getting on in age, but rest of cottage was absolutely wonderful."

  • Same Time Next Year

    "My partner and I returned to Abalone Arch for our second visit. There were many stops in California. This was the only reservation made early so we would be able to stay at the lovely Abalone Arch. The previous reviews pretty much sum up what your experience will entail. The view of the Pacific Ocean from your room is second to none. You are perched on the cliffs. The property is beautiful and serene. The suite is well appointed. Nothing is left to chance. Wendy and Barry are the perfect hosts. They are available if you need them but your privacy comes first. I did use the outside shower this time. Awesome! Lots of info available in the suite. Wendy and Barry are a wealth of info if you want ideas for exploring the area. We only had one dinner in Mendocino. We watched the sun go down each evening and ate our dinners and drank our Ca. wines. Thanks guys for another great stay."
