About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Futon , 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 4 )

Quail Ranch is a very private, dog friendly and quiet place for those seeking comfort and serenity but also just minutes from shopping, galleries and restaurants in Fort Bragg and Mendocino. Relax on the back deck with a drink while viewing the lake, ocean and mountains. Quail Ranch is paradise!

This is a two bedroom, one and one-half bathroom, single story, beautifully decorated home in western style. There are thick, luxurious mattresses on the 2 queen beds. The interior features Mexican and southwestern decor and furniture, including the oil paintings and other artifacts.

There's a dishwasher, double oven, washer/dryer, woodstove, central heat, HDTV, DVD, Smart TV, CD, Wireless Internet with Cable Modem . There's a 2 car, attached garage, private front courtyard, completely fenced and gated with table, chairs and chiminea. Wide furnished decks wrap around the back and side. The ranch style house sits on 3 acres of woods and gardens with a bubbly creek running through it.

This is a perfect place to bring your well behaved dog since the property is completely enclosed by fences. Dogs must be friendly with people and other dogs.

The property borders Mackerricher State Park and Lake Cleone, with a short path leading to the nature trail that winds around the lake and to the ocean beach, just a few minutes away. Quail Ranch is less than a quarter of a mile from Horse rental and boarding stables.

Lake Cleone is stocked with bass and trout and has a launch ramp for small motorless boats, i.e., rowboats, kayaks, canoes and sailboats. River otters may entertain you with their comical water antics and their love for play. Many egrets, blue heron and osprey may be observed while hiking around the beautiful nature trail that winds around the lake and to the ocean.

Mackerricher State Park boasts its pristine, uncrowded, sandy beaches, magnificent cliffs and waves of wildflowers. Shorebirds galore feed along the 10 miles of beach that stretch north of Fort Bragg to 10 Mile River. The boardwalk to Laguna Point will provide an easy walk out to observe the Harbor seals, snoozing on the rocks or feeding in the ocean at the end of the pier. If the time is right, you may also see whales during their migration. Cormorants and Oystercatchers and many other seabirds are plentiful to view.
