PROPERTY NO LONGER AVAILABLE
Spent a weekend at this estate. It is very private estate hidden on a hill surrounded by trees just across the ocean. The property is on several acres of private land overlooking the ocean. The house is very very clean, with luxiouriously desinged interior equivalent to a five star hotel. Comfortable beds, nice amenities, game room, spa... etc on a great property with an awsome view.. what more could you ask for?
DragonMist is such a wonderful serene sanctuary, and the hosts do everything possible to make you feel at home on this magnificent property. They thought of every possible detail to make our stay in their guest house comfortable, and then were immediately available to supply anything else we needed. My friend and I had so much fun, following all their suggestions, which suited us just perfectly. It was such a thoughtful idea of theirs to drive us to the beginning of a trail, after we parked our car at the endpoint, in order to get the full experience of the hike. Our only regret is that we were too busy exploring the area and taking a class to spend enough time here, which will certainly necessitate a return visit.
DragonMist is a wonderful place to stay. The beautiful, private guesthouse with its two stories of floor to ceiling windows allowing the beauty of the Mendocino Coast to envelop your living space, is a definite plus. Keep the provided binoculars handy in case a whale comes by. Toni pays such attention to detail and is an overwhelmingly thoughtful host. The king size bed is very comfy and cozy with lovely linens. As a nice touch, we were greeted with a bottle of regional wine, basketful of snacks, and breakfast goodies to complement the guesthouse kitchenette. The rec room has something for everyone - pool table, ping pong, foosball, large HD TV, fireplace, fridge, even a piano!! Of course, the Jacuzzi is a treat, especially when the stars come out at night! As well as having ocean views from the guesthouse, we also like to sit on the bench on the lower level of their gorgeous property to enjoy the outdoor views. (The tree swing is also fun!!). We highly recommend DragonMist and feel we were treated like family during our 3 night getaway.
I'm going to let the other comments stand in for us just so as not to repeat. This place is beautiful, quiet, exceptionally clean, comfortable. Our only suggestion would be to install a tall cabinet inside the master bedroom just behind the kitchen wall to store pantry items so we didn't have to place on the table. We stayed five nights and fixed breakfast and lunch to go each day and bbq'd a couple evenings. We brought quite a few kitchen items with us. Although there is a big refrigerator in the rec room full of ice and space for guest's use, there is no storage and even if there were, it wouldn't be very convenient. A nice cabinet would be a definite plus.
Toni and Gary Taff are extremely nice hosts and make every effort to make sure their guests are delighted with EVERYTHING!!
We look forward to returning someday (-:
..and the gracious hospitality of the Taffs made our 5 day stay memorable. The guesthouse is well appointed and boasts such luxuries as a fireplace, plus use of hot tub and the large and well equipped recreation room ( pool table, ping pong, fireplace, large TV and comfy leather tilt seating ). The extensive wooded grounds boast a sloping meadow overlooking the Pacific with wooden benches where you can relax, day dream, take stunning photos while marveling the beauty of NorCal. The Frank Lloyd Wright inspired design of the structure, its wonderful execution and the overwhelming beauty of nature here, are what makes this place so magical. It feels like you are in a movie....not too surreal, given how often the Mendocino coast is used by Hollywood, given its natural "wow" factor.
Although the guest house is not free standing, it is separated from the main house by the spacious rec room, so that privacy is assured. The space is well appointed: fully equipped kitchenette and dining area; wonderful bed (plus two more in the loft if needed ); high quality linens; and some faab radiantly heated slate floors. The decor is a little old fashioned compared to the concrete, natural wood and stone, edgy, modern architecture, but very comfortable. The hosts are a delight..very conscious of making your stay one to remember. Little surprises and attentiveness to requests is the norm here. The quality and condition of this property is excellent and will not disappoint, but delight.
We would highly recommend Dragon Mist as an upscale, nature lover's paradise....
These accommodations were top notch and made our trip memorable. My entire party raved about the comfort of the beds and we had wonderful nights sleep. There were personal touches everywhere and we felt welcomed and at ease. Great place to stay in Mendocino!
