Guestbook comments from the owner
Peter and Molly,

This was our second time staying at Sea & River House, and it was again a magnificent experience. The house is beautiful and we enjoyed being able to watch the sunset from the hot tub in the evening. The view of nature is magnificent. The addition of WiFi saved us the choice between worrying and a trip into town. We stayed during the Mendocino music festival which was spectacular. Thank you again for a great vacation.

Peter and Jed dueling on the beach

Peter Anderson purchased this house in 2007

We have long been in love with the indescribable Mendocino coast, and bought the house for our retirement. But, that's 10 years off, and we're renting it out for vacations until then.

FANTASTIC LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This house is perched on a bluff with incredible views. We were visited by bunnies on the lawn and migrating whales in the ocean below.

The house itself is not perfect (it could do with larger windows or sliding doors to maximize the views), but the decks and garden are fabulous.

Our party ranged in age from 3 years to 70 years. Everyone had a great time.

PERFECT WINTER RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
The kids had a three day weekend in March, and we were looking for a quick getaway. We saw the photos on the homeaway website and knew this was exactly the place we needed. When we arrived, we were stunned because the view even more spectacular than the pictures and scanned over a mile of coastal beach and cliffs.

We took their advice from the website and went horseback riding on the beach just south of us at Ricochet Ridge Ranch. It was amazing. They even have horseback riding through the Redwood forest - so I see a return visit in the future!

We found a great grocery store in the town of Mendocino so we did most of our cooking at the house. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed.

Except for one basketball game (ACC tournament finals), we never turned on the television. We sat out on the porch and read, played games and sat by the wood burning stove and just talked.

It really was the perfect winter retreat and I can't wait to go back next year!

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time staying at the house, the view is certainly something to remember.

It was everything we could have wanted from our stay at the coast. Loved the wood burner.

Great woods, great ocean view, good local wines and a few pretty decent restaurants. I don't know what else you can expect from a vacation house, way better than most high end hotels in my opinion. What I loved the most was not seeing too many people while we were enjoying all of this, and not seeing a Walmart or a Mc. Donald's within a 10 mile radius! Can't think of a better place to recharge your batteries!

BREATHTAKING SCENERY!

  • 5 of 5
The house sits way off the road, but the street number was well marked. The house doesn't look like much when you first drive up, but it is a charming, quaint mix of rooms and decor. The deck wraps around 3 sides, and the view is amazing! The downstairs suite & game room is accessible by a circular stairway that had me moving very carefully, but it was worth it! The downstairs bedroom has a sliding glass door that looks out on the ocean - I kept it open at night for the sound of crashing waves, cool breezes, and a morning scene of beauty when I woke up! We took a Pack & Play for the 23-month-old, the 4-year-old slept on the twin bed, and the rest of us had plenty of room. Who needs a TV with this scenery? We sat on the deck a lot and read, then after dark went inside and read. We took an excursion on the Skunk Train in Fort Bragg, did some shopping and cooking, let the boys swim at Van Damme State Park, enjoyed the rustic town of Mendocino, and walked a lot of headlands. Everything was as described and more! We cooked and ate and let little guys play in the floor, so that should tell you it was clean! The Albion grocery was very expensive, so I'd recommend going into Fort Bragg to the Safeway for any supplies if you have time. We loved it! Since I live in Georgia, I probably won't be able to go back, but I would in a heartbeat!

Sea and River House was exactly as the description depicted; the home was clean and well-maintained. It sits on a beautiful spot overlooking the ocean and is very convenient for day trips north and south on the coast and for trips into both the Anderson and Sonoma valley vineyards and wineries. The beds were very comfortable and it was easy to get our wheelchair-bound son in and out of the home. Our favorite restaurant in the area was the Black Point Grille at the Sea Ranch lodge about 25 miles south of Elk. We also greatly enjoyed the accessible trails through the redwoods at Hendy Woods State Park, and the Anderson Valley wineries--particularly Navarro Winery and Toulouse Vineyard both near Philo. Pepperwood Pottery was a good stop too--where the owner showed us his private wine cellar (all handcrafted with artisan tiles). It's a beautiful location and a full service home that I would recommend--particularly for families. Thanks Molly and Peter for making it available!
