Thank you, Caroline, for providing such a charming retreat. The cabin is cozy, comfortable and has everything you need to make your own meals, which you will want to do more frequently than you might think because the deck just off the kitchen seems like it is in the middle of a private forest. The bed is very comfortable, a big item for us, topped by a thick, warm quilt. There are portable heaters if you need them, but the cabin retains the day's heat and you probably won't need them during most of the year. There are many artistic touches throughout the property and the cabin itself. And, yes, in just a few minutes you can walk to downtown Mendocino, which we did several times. There is a farmer's market to check out and numerous excellent restaurants and hiking trails. Don't miss going down to one of the beaches, though those particular trails can be a bit steep. Photographic opportunities will keep you busy, too. Caroline has other rentals if this one is full. So glad we discovered this gem, Caroline!
