REDWOOD MANOR-PRIVATE HEAVENLY RETREAT, 3+ACRE, 3+MINS TO BEACH :-)

Fort Bragg Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Private, Acreage, Historic, Certified Wildlife Preserve, Escape coast fog

Certified Wildlife Habitat site.

Private, secluded, country setting. Escape the crowds and fog. 360 degree woods, redwoods. Wildlife, small ponds, meadows and night stars.

Rustic/historic architecture. Renaissance/antique style. 8 mins to historic town of Fort Bragg, 25 mins drive to historic town of Mendocino. Hot tub (additional fee), fire pit. barbecue. Huge great room with open plan kitchen, perfect for family get together's. Disabled, handicapped, wheelchair, child & pet friendly :)

This property is the ultimate retreat from everything, situated at the end of a very safe and private country road on 3+ acres on the periphery of the fog belt. Perfectly and conveniently situated minutes from the beach and town.

Endowed with beautiful views of meadows, woods, majestic redwood trees and 2 small ponds over looked from the back west deck/kitchen window. Presenting total seclusion and a calm and tranquil ambiance, especially in the evening when one can relax in the hot tub, gaze at the stars and listen to the distant ocean waves, frogs and crickets.

8 foot by 8 foot Hot tub - Additional cost - seems unfair to include it in the nightly rate because not everyone wishes to use it. Mendocino County is suffering from great water shortages at the moment, lowest level of rainfall in this area on record for 77yrs. I therefore feel that under the circumstances, the hot tub may or may not be available. It will all depend on the amount of rainfall we get this year, to be determined.

There are two hot tub places, one in Fort Bragg called the bamboo garden spa: http://www.bamboogardenspa.com/, and also a private & communal spa in Mendocino: http://www.sweetwaterspa.com/tubs.shtml (both on city water)

Happy to say, no poison oak :).

Circular driveway that has numerous parking places. Huge wraparound south and west facing deck and patio; superb for entertaining with landscaping that attracts numerous species of birds, butterflies, dragonflies, deer and wild geese that fly over in a flock twice a day.

The [Home] is [predominantly] built [with] old beams salvaged from the [historic] Georgia Pacific Mill presenting a rustic and relaxing environment. Huge vaulted ceilings on both floors with upper bedrooms having the 'Romeo & Juliet' shutters which overlook the 31ft living room.

I Wendelain (owner) am originally from York, north of England, but have lived in California for nearly 19 years now. I have spent 11+ years here on the beautiful Mendocino coast developing this exquisite property into my dream 'little English' escape and feel very fortunate to be able to share my dream with others.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions at all regarding the property :).

Beach: 3+ minutes by car, approx 20 mins by foot, approx 10 mins jogging.

By car: 8 minutes to the historical town of Fort Bragg, 20-25 minutes to the historical town of Mendocino. The beach is seconds away from the end of Airport Road where it meets HWY 1, you can either choose to park at a public car park which gives you access to the Haul road and a trail which meanders north to the beaches, rock pools, fishing/diving spots and headlands or south which takes you over the historic Pudding Creek Trestle Bridge (recently renovated) and over the headlands to the famous Glass beach. Alternatively you can park at Pudding Creek beach (where the creek meets the sea) and have direct access to the beach - the creek is more like a river and a lot more safer than the ocean for little ones to paddle in.

Situated on the end of a very private lane (off Airport Road), in an extremely safe and quiet neighborhood in the center of 3+ acres surrounded by trees and meadows - not a neighbor in sight. Loads of space for kids to run around and if you have dog(s) great to throw sticks a long long way. There is a croquet set, badminton net and rackets for outdoor fun. For fun family/romantic outdoor evenings there is a 8' by 8' hot tub (extra cost) situated off the south deck and a fire pit situated on the patio for warmth and to toast marshmallows.

There are two ponds for your enjoyment that I am pleased to say are not easily accessed by children.

Feeling adventuress?, you can even take a walk in the surrounding woods.

Every first Friday of the month Fort Bragg has what they call 'First Friday', whereupon the galleries/book shops open there doors late for locals and guests get to preview new books and art and very generously offer free finger food and sometimes wine.

If you are looking for privacy, peace and an escape from everything yet need to pop to the beach/town/store this is, perhaps the place for you :)

I purchased this property ultimately for privacy, space, and it is a very safe and friendly neighborhood. It has abundance of nature, wildlife and more importantly an escape from the coastal fog (that's not a promise though as she sometimes visits). Not a neighbor in sight. It's especially pleasurable to sit by the pond or on the main south facing deck drinking morning coffee or afternoon wine spritzers:). I love the layout because it has an open kitchen to the huge south facing 31' x 18' great room - perfect for entertaining. Overall the house has so much character, warmth and space and the surrounding grounds that offer plenty of meadow area for outdoor activities along with a perimeter woodland that adds total privacy.

Comfort! Joy! A true escape!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was wonderful, beyond expectation!! The house and property are so comfortable, so inviting, and so akin to our aesthetics; we actually changed the dates of our vacation in order to stay at the Manor. The photos can hardly do justice to the beauty and space provided here. The bedrooms are very comfortable, and the yard outside if huge and gorgeous and well-maintained. The owner is so kind and considerate; so quick to respond and so helpful! Thanks for everything, we will never forget it!
(Definitely recommend the Mendo Bistro in Ft. Bragg.

Redwood Manor Stay

The Manor was a lovely English Manor. It was in an ideal location. The outdoor grounds were spectacular surrounded in forest and had a lovely outside deck with firepit. Very spacious home big screen tvs. A bonus was that dogs were allowed.

Lovely getaway!

  • 5 of 5
A group of 6 friends had a wonderful time at this cozy house. Amazing outdoor space and plenty of room to relax. The house had everything you needed. We loved the outdoor patio, fire pit and hot tub. Very private and peaceful, beautiful gardens. Wendelain was very helpful and accommodating. Look forward to visiting again.

Inviting Hideaway!

  • 5 of 5
Our family spent 4 days together on a mini vacation in this cozy home. We arrived to find a warm and inviting house with wonderful soft music playing; it was instantly relaxing after a 5 hour drive! Wendelain came over soon after our arrival and explained all the details of the kerosene stove and how to operate the oven in the kitchen. She thought of every detail throughout the house, including fresh flowers on the dining table and a box of chocolates waiting for us! This home away from home is very private, has a wonderful garden and is surrounded by large trees. If you're looking for a quiet escape, this is the place!

Amazing House!

  • 5 of 5
This house is amazing. The rooms were beautifully decorated and the upstairs had windows over looking the bottom; it was so much fun for everyone. The owner was very accommodating, welcoming and helpful. She left us with more then we needed, in the best of ways, and was very very sweet. She gave us a tour and explained everything so well. There were games, and toys for outside. We spent hours paying badminton!
Overall our experience was perfect. We were close to the beach where we could play in tide pools, and the time we spent just hanging out in the house was fun. The kitchen was beautiful and after dinner you could stroll through the trees and look at the fish in the pond RIGHT OUTSIDE! It was amazing.
