Overview

About the property

Studio, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Forest Suite is located just 5 minutes south from the village of Mendocino on 5 acres of beautiful redwoods.This 560 sq. ft. apartment plus 200sq ft deck, is upstairs from my 2,000 sq. ft artist’s studio, which is not in use when guests are staying. Built entirely with redwood, recycled fir and barn wood with cement counters and shower this romantic getaway is a very special spot.

The south wall is all windows with a deck overlooking the surrounding trees. It’s very peaceful and sunny and is frequented by honeymooners, artists, writers and those seeking total privacy. A few books and screenplays have been written here! Take a walk through the forest or just relax and enjoy the tranquility.

About Jennifer Linley Taylor

Collage is not only my medium as an artist, it best describes my life. I've traveled extensively throughout the world and have lived in France, Spain and New York City. I have worked as a fashion model, singer/songwriter and now as a full time artist, working in my studio out on Gordon Lane. I've had a variety of exhibitions worldwide, exhibited at the United Nations building in New York and at the world renowned Museo Vittoriano in Rome, Italy. I've done installations for Gallagher's Art and Fashion Gallery in Manhattan, and for French designer Catherine Malandrino's Soho store. My works are in private collections throughout the world. I have been coming to Mendocino my whole life, at first to visit my Grandmother and now as a homeowner for the last 20 years. I love to introduce people to this beautiful and unique area and enjoy meeting people from around the world that come here to visit.

Jennifer Linley Taylor purchased this studio in 1995

Why Jennifer Linley Taylor chose North Coast California

I was looking for a forested piece of property where I could build a barnlike structure for my studio and also have a living space that would work well for a vacation rental. When I found these 5 acres so close to town, I knew I had found the perfect spot. As I do not live on the property, this works out really well, as I only work when then place is not rented.

What makes this studio unique

The proximity to Mendocino village, the privacy and total silence other than birds and the sound of the wind in the redwoods makes this place perfect for those that are seeking refuge. It instills creativity and thought, peace and harmony. From the front door you can walk through your own forest or go on a long walk down Gordon Lane and across State Park to the headlands.

Beautiful vista in the treetops

  • 5 of 5

Nicely setup studio in the Mendo forest. Perfect place to unwind. Close to town of Mendocino or beaches. Beautiful setting among treetops. Would definitely stay here again!

Cozy, beautiful forest retreat needs firmer mattress

  • 3 of 5

The lovely loft and being in the midst of a forest were positives that inflated our spirits when we arrived for a much needed mini-vacation (and to celebrate a 60th birthday.) Unfortunately, bad nights' sleep on too-soft-a-bed and reading books on a sofa which reminded me of college days

(where scrimping involved using a few pieces of furniture that didn't have good support.)

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry you didn't like the mattress gel topper. Anyone is welcome to remove it for a firmer sleep. Our most recent guests that I just spoke with today, and are leaving tomorrow, said it was super comfy and loved it! We have had no negative reviews so far about it after many years, so good point, if you like a super firm mattress, our Forest Suite bed is not for you! There is a new couch since May 17th...

Great comfortable and secluded place near the coast

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the loft apartment. It was very private and had a nice clean feel to it. Super close to Mendocino and the coast.

Thanks!

We loved your studio suite in the forest!

  • 5 of 5

It exceeded our expectations with soothing panoramic views of the forest, artistic display of your collage art, warmth of the fire on rainy days, eclectic selection of books, tranquil music, and all in a wonderful community with state parks, trails, views and ocean. We would love to come back again!

Perfect place in the redwoods near the ocean

  • 5 of 5

Jennifer's Forest Suite is a gem. In the redwoods, quiet, tranquil - and just a five-minute drive to Mendocino, the ocean, and state parks. The studio itself is a work of art with reclaimed redwood everywhere, not to mention Jennifer's art and creative hand present throughout. The bed is super comfy, and unlike many other studio rentals, this one has its own sitting area and full kitchen. There is a DVD player and Direct TV (which I actually never used, but to update some of the older info about there only being a VCR), but the best part is just sitting in the silence with the sound of the birds, the trees, and the ocean.

Like another reviewer stated, I'm hesitant to give this place such a great review for fear it will always be booked. Once you have been to Forest Suite, it's hard not to imagine it as your own secret place in the woods.
