About The Owner

Tara is from London and Stuart is from New York City. We have been married for many years and we share many interests such as native plants and herbs, organic gardening, green living, solar energy and holistic massage. These pursuits are reflected in the off the grid estate we are listing, which has been our labor of love. Tara has over 20 years of extensive experience in various types of body therapies and is certified in therapeutic massage, Aroma Therapy, Shamanic Stone therapy, Rosen Method body work and Rosen Movement.

The Owner purchased this lodge in 1993

Why The Owner chose Mendocino County

Our rural setting is a special place, which can also serve visitors. Local property owners strive to function in harmony with the natural environment. Many native plants have been used for landscaping and natural materials have been used for buildings. We care about preserving the pristine quality of the land and the peace and tranquility of the neighborhood.

What makes this lodge unique

The local wildlife is astounding. We often have deer that come right onto the lawn and families of river otters who visit our lake-pond. We have a variety of bedrooms, two fireplaces and a comfy den. Our enormous kitchen has a Wolf stove with two ovens and a substantial island with a butcher block top that is the envy of cooking enthusiasts. There is also a sleeping porch for use during the warmer months. We are in a remote location, yet we are 40 minutes closer to the town of Mendocino than if we were in the town of Ukiah. Local activities range from hiking, bird watching, stargazing, swimming and hot springs, to name just a few.

Great place for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 20 stayed here in August, 2013, for a family reunion. Family members came from all over the country, ages 3 through 67. The drive from SF airport is reasonable, and the scenery along the way beautiful. The house was in great condition, plenty of room and enough bathrooms, so we didn't feel crowded. The spacious kitchen was well equipped, and one of our main gathering places. The deck and garden were favorite places for group dinners. We swam in the pond and explored along the creek, took walks along the fields and made day trips to the coast and the nearby redwood preserve. We had a fantastic time, and the owners were very friendly, available, and accommodating. Would recommend this to anyone who wants a peaceful and beautiful venue for a reunion, retreat, or wedding.
