“Beautiful Setting”
Reviewed January 23, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Rustic and well designed, the house was comfortable and enjoyable even in December with intermittent rain. Wild rhododendrons were beginning to open in the open forests around the house. When the sun emerged on a couple of days, the setting was beautiful. The front room was very nice and the kitchen was large and open. The windows both front and rear were delightful. The two lower bedrooms were good, but we were surprised that the upstairs bedroom was open to the large rooms below. There were two problems with the upstairs. One was the dangerous stairs with no adequate railing for people of our retirement age. The other was a large metal bath with high sides that were difficult to climb and with slick footing. Our two small dogs were happy being outside, although the lack of fencing called for them to have leashes at all times. The deck outside the upstairs looked appealing if the weather had been better. We appreciated that the deck had room for one of our cars under it so that we could remove or insert things we'd brought rather than having to be in the rain. Heating was very good, although we did not have any wood for the stove furnished while we were there. My wife and I were there with a friend, and we found the short drive to downtown Mendocino or a modest drive to Fort Bragg was easy. We had actually rented a different site but it was being fixed as we were ready to drive there and the property manager moved us to Fairy Ring to take care of us, which we appreciated.

“A casual, quiet, comfortable place, not too far from the village”
Reviewed October 3, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This is a great place to rent if you want quiet, privacy and comfort not far from town, with 3 bedrooms for a group. The house is not posh but it was clean, comfortable and cozy. The house sits in deep shade, so skip it if you crave sun, but if you want to feel nestled in redwoods this is your spot. No one in my group felt that the village was "within walking distance" but the car ride was a simple 5 minute zip, and parking is abundant in Mendocino Village, so we appreciated the location. Everything in the house was in working order, and we enjoyed the wood stove at night.The only feature of the house I found less than ideal was that that upstairs loft is a bed/bath combo without a wall or door separating the bathroom from the bedroom area, so, for those who require a lot of privacy on the toilet, you'll have to communicate with your roommate. Despite that feature, I would absolutely recommend this rental to friends who want to stay in Mendocino and I would stay there again.

“Amazing !!!”

My husband and I stayed here 3 nights and had the most wonderful time! We were able to bring our dog with us and there was plenty of room for him to run around outside and be safe the whole time! The cottage is beautiful inside as well with plenty of space for a large family or a getaway with friends! You are also within walking distance to Mendocino and at night when you are in bed you can hear the waves crashing!

“Cute place but some reservations..”

This place is someones dream house with amazing woodwork and tucked in the woods. When my husband and I arrived it was late at night and there were no lights on outside at all. I have some disabilities with walking and it made me very nervous to walk around with no light. It was dangerous to try to get around the house without any light and fumble to find the key. it was cool once we got inside so we wanted to start the fire with the wood provided but there were no matches or any way at all to light it. We spent the first hour hunting all over the house. We didn't want to try to go to a store so we just gave up. I love the area and the feeling of privacy there but a few preparations around making your arrival pleasant would go a long way. I wrote the owners about this but never received a reply.

Thank you for sharing your review. We will follow up with the owner to verify that the outside lights are working and suggest matches to start a cozy fire. We hope that these things did not diminish your overall enjoyment of the home.
