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.

The property is isolated and private yet very close to the beach and Mendocino

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at night and were pleasantly surprised in the morning to find ourselves in the forest surrounded by the trees. The studio is perfect for relaxing, cooking, watching movies and very close to the beach, Mendocino and many state parks. The beach at the end of the road is run/walkable. We'd love to come back.

Wonderful, Magical, Peaceful and Romantic

  • 5 of 5

The Forest Suite is truly a treasure. It is about 1.5 miles from the coast where the views of the coast just take your breath away. The suite is quiet, immaculate and beautifully decorated (along with samples of the owners artwork) with absolutely everything you would ever need for a comfortable stay.

After a day of sightseeing and hiking to come back to the suite, cook dinner and sit on the deck with a glass of wine, surrounded by redwoods, and watching the stars was magical.

Jennifer was the consummate host, she was very responsive to any questions we had and gave us total privacy. We definitely will be back!

Thank you for a memorable stay.

Attention to details, serene and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The place is a total sanctuary in the woods, very soothing for the soul and made us relax! The artistic flair and attention to every detail in the studio was refreshing and made us feel like we are in a fairy tale in the woods. The bed was very comfortable, plenty of hot water in the large beautiful shower, all the spices we needed for cooking and nice books to read. We were so relaxed that we didn't watch any of the well thought out DVD selection that feature the Mendocino coast!
