Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This exquisite Asian jewel is set in beautiful, peaceful, private gardens with a large pond. Gorgeous custom-made furniture, Bose surround-sound, spa-like glass block shower. Quiet, clean, radiant heat under bamboo floor warms the soul and feet. A truly inspiring space with tons of architectural details. Quarter of a mile walk over sand dunes (50 yards away) offers unique access to shoreline of Ten Mile beach and river in the Fort Bragg sunbelt. Because this section of beach is only by private access, it's relatively deserted. Many guests choose to come for a solo retreat. There's a deck and props for yoga, a firepit with wood provided, and a barbeque with charcoal provided. 40 bird species within a one mile radius of the cottage.

Come, relax, unwind, decompress from the city and reenergize your spirit!

Sleep in comfortable queen Flo-Bed (latex) with the surf as a lullaby and birds as your alarm. Four state parks nearby for kayaking, canoeing, hiking etc. Fort Bragg and Mendocino shops and restaurants 10 to 20 minutes respectively. Lost Coast 30 min. north of Westport.

Sorry, no pets.

Licensed massage therapist available on-site by reservation

About Lindsay

I'm a 34 year resident of Fort Bragg- all that time practicing as a psychotherapist but now retired. My other occupation is tending my Japanese garden! I love walking on the virtually deserted dunes and stretch of Ten Mile beach. All my guests comment on the serene, peaceful feeling of the property and the attention to detail. I live in the main house on the property.

Lindsay purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Lindsay chose Fort Bragg

I custom built the cottage originally for friends to enjoy when visiting.

What makes this cottage unique

Peace, quiet, beautiful natural surroundings and easy access to a little used stretch of the beach. 40 bird species within a one mile radius of cottage.

Beautiful place to unplug!

  • 5 of 5

Very peaceful setting! We loved having close access to the beach as well as great restaurants and fun shops. Lindsay is a great hostess; personable but gives you space.

Tranquil Zen Jewel Sanctuary says it all!

  • 5 of 5

One of the most relaxing places we have ever stayed! The cottage and grounds are amazing! Lindsay has thought of everything. To be able to walk out onto the road, to the trail, onto the dunes (yes it's a little bit of a hike!), and then to find yourself all alone on 10 mile beach is truly a blessing!

Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Zen Sanctuary was all we could have asked for. A tranquil setting on a busy holiday weekend. Daytime to sunset in the dunes and on the deserted beach, evenings by the firepit. Lindsay is a gracious host, and provided for a peaceful and private stay. Would recommend to anyone wanting to get away and enjoy the north coast at its best.

Nice Stay

  • 5 of 5

It was another wonderful week in Ft. Bragg. We found some new places to visit including the Zen Sanctuary. Well appointed, comfortable bed and beautiful garden. A little further out of town than we are used to and a long walk over dunes to the beach (which we never made), but a nice stay.
