Overview

Yorkville Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, Queen bed, sofa bed, futon, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-4), galley kitchen

En route from Cloverdale to Boonville on Highway 128, at 1,425 feet elevation in the scenic Yorkville Highlands of Anderson Valley, Woodhaven cottage occupies the former art studio, workshop on the Ravenridge property. Shaded by an old live oak, the cottage looks out to the surrounding forest of Douglas Fir, Madrone, and Redwood. The westward vista from the wooden deck beckons to the Mendocino coast beyond. Abundant bird and wildlife include year-round residents and seasonal visitors.

The spacious cottage has a high-pitched ceiling, skylights, and a wall of windows looking north. Soothing colors and contemporary furnishings create a relaxed yet sophisticated ambience. The wood-burning stove keeps the space cozy during chilly times of the year, with abundant seasoned Madrone from the property.

The large studio space contains the sleeping, dining, and living areas, with an adjoining galley kitchen. The compact kitchen is well appointed, and with the outdoor charcoal grill, offers complete cooking options.

Ideal for a couple, the cottage can also accommodate a family with young children. The sofa converts to a comfortable single bed, an optional futon sleeps a fourth person. The private bath, with shower, has floor to ceiling tile.

Ravenridge is ideally located as a base for exploring the surrounding wine country, with dozens of tasting rooms within nearby. Fine dining is within half an hour's drive. Or, settle in and enjoy the privacy and quiet of this idyllic retreat.

Why Kurt Feichtmeir chose Yorkville

A desire to return to our rural roots led us on a quest for a country property north of San Francisco. We thought Healdsburg was where we wanted to land, but instead – and most fortunately – we decided to expand our search into the "wilds" of Mendocino County. Rather than the small "fixer-upper" we'd envisioned, we discovered an established property with a large house and a second smaller residence with adjacent guest house. We were instantly smitten and concluded the purchase within less than 3 months of our initial viewing. The views from the main house are jaw-droppingl, with ever changing colors, textures, smells and wonder. Over the years since our purchase, we've made many improvements, both in terms of infrastructure and aesthetics. Extensive landscaping includes drought resistant plantings of shrubs that compliment the wide views of rolling hills. Fruit trees and grape vines share space with the flower, herb, and vegetable gardens. Surrounding forest and meadows provide habitat for abundant birds and wildlife, as well as inspiring views.

What makes this studio unique

Quiet and tranquility are rate commodities for modern, urban dwellers – Ravenridge offers a soothing antidote to the stresses of modern life. Rustic sophistication and comfortable amenities create a restorative ambience.

Such a beautiful and cozy cottage!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved my stay at Ravenridge! I went with a group of girlfriends for a birthday celebration in wine country. The cottage is so comfortable and the views are amazing. Our hosts were gracious and we were lucky enough to be invited up for some wine and a tour through their beautiful garden. I would absolutely recommend it, it's such a peaceful beautiful getaway.
