About the Property
Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4) Full kitchen
Ravenridge is located at 1,425 feet elevation in the highlands eight miles west of Highway 101 in southern Mendocino County. As you wind along scenic Highway 128, city life fades away. You enter a private gate, follow a gravel road through vineyard and forest, and arrive. Hillview cottage is nestled beneath an ancient live oak with dramatic hillside vistas that beckon westward to the Mendocino coast.
Nearby Douglas firs, redwoods madrones, and oaks provide habitat for an assortment of birds and other wildlife, including our resident Ravens. Your private getaway offers both a relaxing retreat and a comfortable base for exploring the surrounding wine regions. With an exceptional rustic setting and comfortable amenities, the cottages at Ravenridge await you.

Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: Gerald Reis and Kurt Feichtmeir are the Ravenridge proprietors . We discovered and fell in love with our ridgetop home where we've resided since 2001. Located in southern Mendocino County it is spectacularly situated with panoramic western views. Surrounded by expansive wild lands, we are also deeply connected to a community of wonderful neighbors who share a commitment to country life, the land and its inhabitants. We named our property in honor of the year-round resident Ravens whose daily presence – aerial acrobatics, varied vocalizations, intelligent antics, and intergenerational family relationships – enlivens our world.
Why the Owner Chose Cloverdale, CA, USA:
In 2003, a few years after purchasing and settling into our new home, we turned our creative energy to refurbishing the original one-bedroom house and its nearby workshop for use by our family, friends, and vacation rental guests. Each renovated cottage has its own "sophisticated rustic" style, fully appointed for comfort and privacy. Our country location offers guests access to nature - forest, wildlife, star-gazing, sunsets, and fresh air - and a home base for exploring the bounty of Mendocino County's natural, cultural, and viticultural resources. Dozens of wine-tasting and beer-tasting venues are within a 30 minute radius of Ravenridge. Sharing our inspirational retreat with guests is an extension of our vision to be good stewards of the land.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We appreciate that many of our guests are Ravenridge "regulars" who return to celebrate, chill out, and re-charge.
