And there is a also a new, very comfortable sleeper chair in the living room for one person. The interior features Mexican and southwestern decor and furniture, including the oil paintings and other artifacts.
There's a dishwasher, double oven, washer/dryer, woodstove, central heat, HDTV, DVD, CD, Wireless Internet with Cable Modem . There's a 2 car, attached garage, private front courtyard, completely fenced and gated with table, chairs and chiminea. Wide furnished decks wrap around the back and side. The ranch style house sits on 3 acres of woods and gardens with a bubbly creek running through it.
This is a perfect place to bring your well behaved dog since the property is completely enclosed by fences. So you can walk your dog, free of a leash, except in the State Park.
The property borders Mackerricher State Park and Lake Cleone, with a short path leading to the nature trail that winds around the lake and to the ocean beach, just a few minutes away. Quail Ranch is less than a quarter of a mile from Horse rental and boarding stables.
Lake Cleone is stocked with bass and trout and has a launch ramp for small motorless boats, i.e., rowboats, kayaks, canoes and sailboats. River otters may entertain you with their comical water antics and their love for play. Many egrets, blue heron and osprey may be observed while hiking around the beautiful nature trail that winds around the lake and to the ocean.
Mackerricher State Park boasts its pristine, uncrowded, sandy beaches, magnificent cliffs and waves of wildflowers. Shorebirds galore feed along the 10 miles of beach that stretch north of Fort Bragg to 10 Mile River. The boardwalk to Laguna Point will provide an easy walk out to observe the Harbor seals, snoozing on the rocks or feeding in the ocean at the end of the pier. If the time is right, you may also see whales during their migration. Cormorants and Oystercatchers and many other seabirds are plentiful to view.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We are grateful we had a chance to share this magical Spot on this miraculous planet, even for a brief time. You have created a wellcoming, comforting space, from your engaging artwork to the enveloping furniture to the lovely grounds.
FOR DOG LOVERS, we recommend Ten Mile Beach up the coast a few miles and Lulu and Toulouse Wineries in Philo. Great wine, fun people and dog friendly.
And for take-out supper, we recommend Piaci in Fort Bragg. Elegant piazzas, delicious Mac and cheese. Also a great place for long walks with dog, plus a visual feast: Mendocino Botanical Gardens south of Fort Bragg. We spent half a day wandering the trails. Enjoy!!
The owner purchased the property in 1995 for her private home. The house and gardens were renovated throughout the years and became known as Quail Ranch since its heavily populated with quail. Several years ago Quail Ranch became a part time vacation rental. The home is kept as it is used by the owner. Personal artifacts, photos, paintings, books, magazines remain in the house for your enjoyment.
