About the property

Two bedroom, 1.5 bath, spacious home on 10 acres, stunning views

Enjoy a cozy, warm winter vacation in beautiful Anderson Valley. Our spacious home sleeps six people and is great as a family house for gatherings or a romantic getaway. The area is lush with greenery including Hendy Woods, many vineyards, orchards, and pastureland. The valley is filled with rolling oak covered hills, madrone trees, colorful wildflowers, and towering majestic redwoods. Many local wineries with tasting rooms are located on Highway 128. Also our local brewery makes delicious beer and offers tastings and tours as well. Hiking is a treat in Hendy Woods or along the Navarro River. And we are a short half hour drive to the gorgeous Mendocino Coast. Special events all year include: crab & mushroom days, whale festivals, rhododendron & wildflower shows, Mendocino Film Festival, Pinot Noir Festival, Open Artists' Studios, Sierra Nevada Music Festival, Mendocino County Fair, Abalone Festival and the Festival of Lights and much more!

Two bedrooms, one with balcony, 1.5 baths, fully equipped kitchen, fabulous views, and a cozy wood-burning stove make this a great getaway. Wineries, beach, swimming pool & hiking nearby.

Although we are not remote, you feel solitude, as no other buildings are visible from the property. Serene and private, the two-storey house sleeps 6 comfortably. On the second floor a master bedroom has a queen-size bed and museum-quality paintings, while the second bedroom has a double bed with a romantic south-facing balcony for stargazing or greeting the day. A full bath, with bidet is adjacent. Downstairs a double futon-couch can accommodate two in the large living room. A wood-burning stove affords visible cheer and extra warmth. The home is filled with stunning artwork. Ethnic fabrics on upholstery, pillows and spreads add more artistic touches, but the home is kid-friendly, with extra folding futons and air mattress.

Beautiful peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our quiet time in the redwoods. You can sit and enjoy this peaceful setting or find the best of Northern California's woods, wineries and beaches all within 30min of this property.

Great house in beautiful surroundings.

  • 4 of 5

We came up to spend the weekend celebrating my parents anniversary. We were 5 total with our daughter. The house and property were great - very comfortable and provided everything we needed. Only bummer was the hot tub being out of order, but the views and quiet surroundings more than made up for it.

Nancy the owner met us when we arrived and gave us the tour and invited us to use herbs from her garden for cooking. She was very friendly and accommodating.

We will keep this home in mind for future visits and recommend it.

Such a peaceful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

I had such a lovely stay at this beautiful home. So many nice walks to be had, a pond nearby, and the home itself had everything I needed and was very well decorated. I hope to be back soon!

A beautiful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Nancy's home was everything I needed for a peaceful weekend away from the city. The home itself is lovely and well tended, with tasteful decorations and a nicely stocked kitchen. The house was clean and everything was easy to find. There are gorgeous walks from the house and a short drive takes you to vineyards and a beautiful old growth redwood grove. I will definitely be coming back!
