DAZZLING VIEWS OF THE PACIFIC OCEAN AND THE ALBION BRIDGE
This stunning custom home was built to take advantage of the ridge top views of the Albion River and Pacific Ocean. The great room and both the master and second bedroom have spectacular views of the ocean and the Albion River Bridge, the largest wood trestle bridge in California.
Ideal for large families or groups, the home has an open great room with sectional and couch plus 2 corner chairs for perfect sunset viewing! We find many guests come to the Mendocino coast to attend or be in a coast wedding and prefer a home environment to a hotel. Dining table seats 8+ with additional seating of 3 counter bar stools off the spacious, fully-equipped kitchen. Renters remark how fully equipped the kitchen is for family cooking and holiday renting. 50” flat screen TV in great room plus 2 additional televisions, wifi and a Baldwin piano. There is a pool table, darts and a number of board games and puzzles. The area recently has added a Verizon tower for cell coverage and we have a landline with unlimited long distance.
We have a 7.7 kW car charger with a standard J1772 connector on the property for renter use.
Sleeping accommodations include queen beds in both master and second bedroom on main floor, queen in downstairs bedroom, two twins in a trundle/day bed set up in the game room, and carpeted sleeping loft accessible from ladder in great room with queen air mattress.
There are gas fireplaces in both the great room and master. A large slate front patio includes a gas barbecue and a gas/wood fire pit with abundant seating. Bird feeders attract many varieties of birds to our ridge-top perch.
Hot tub/spa on raised deck off master along with Jacuzzi tub in master bath both afford ocean views.

We feel very fortunate to have purchased this beautiful ridge-top home overlooking the Pacific and Albion Bay and look forward to sharing it with you!

Beautiful retreat for special gatherings
Our stay in this wonderful home exceeded our hopes and expectations. In addition to being in excellent condition with all amenities thoughtfully in place, the floor plan allows for both gathering and conversation spots and also plenty of privacy. We had a diverse age group and everyone’s desires were met. So many good nearby restaurants but we also enjoyed the complete kitchen so much that we opted in more than anticipated. Recommend for making fond memories with family and friends!
Wonderful house with a great view
Our trip was to celebrate my daughter's 40th birthday. My sister and my two daughters and myself traveled to the area to do some touring and wine tasting in the Anderson Valley. The house was of rich quality and very well furnished. It also was supplied with everything needed in the kitchen and throughout the whole house. The view was exquisite and the beds were very comfortable. We could not be more pleased with our choice of homes to rent.
Wonderful coastal property!
We stayed at this property October 6 - 9, 2017 and we were very pleased to see how beautiful the home was when we arrived. The views are stunning and the home has a very open and relaxing feel to it. This property is great for any size group and can sleep up to 10 people! We also loved the kitchen, which was very well equipped, along with the bottle of Hendy wine, that was in the gift basket. With the cooler temps, we enjoyed the large gas fireplace that was in the living room, as well as the one in the master bedroom. The home also features an outdoor spa on the deck, which I would highly recommend, as well as an outdoor garden/sitting area with a gas fire pit, that adds that more charm to this property. This area has so much to offer depending on one's taste, but we enjoyed hiking in the Hendy State Park , where we were among the great redwoods, and even saw 2 bucks! Another special trail we enjoyed was the Fern Falls trail in the Russian River State Park, that leads to a beautiful waterfall. There are lots of great restaurants and shops in the area, but we highly recommend that you do your grocery shopping at the Harvest Foods store in Mendencino, because any other little store has sky high prices. We love visiting this coastal area because it is so beautiful and would definitely love to stay at this property again next time we are able to visit!
We stayed at this beautiful home for four nights (six adults). This home had everything we could ever need; the kitchen was well equipped, the beds were comfortable, and the pool table and dart board were fun. We really enjoyed the breathtaking views and the ideal location this home has.
The owners were really nice and left a gift basket of local goodies. I would highly recommend this home!
Beautiful property with wonderful views from every window. Well stocked and very comfortable!
We had a wonderful time in this amazing property. It was a real treat to wake up to an incredible view of the water every day. We had everything we needed, the property was well cared for and the grounds were beautiful.I would definitely stay here again.
A glorious week with my girls
This vacation was exactly what my daughters and I wanted and needed. I think I cried half a dozen times - for all the best reasons. Everyone had a glorious time. The house is beautiful, the views are glorious and the time spent together by the fire pit some of the best of the summer. Such a treat to make meals together in the spacious kitchen, enjoying each other's company, just the best!!! Every morning was spent watching the birds visiting the many bird feeders and watching for deer.
I highly recommend a visit to the Mendocino Botanical Gardens in Fort Bragg, absolutely stunning. We also took a sea cave kayak tour that everyone agreed was even better than any of us expected it to be.
