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 Mendocino

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.

Majestic

We just got back from spending two nights here. What a great place. Very comfortable and the view is amazing. It was just a perfect peaceful get away, which is exactly what we needed. I’d love to go back sometime.

Great studio near Mendocino

  • 4 of 5

We loved the studio in the Mendocino forest minutes away from the town of Mendocino. The only issue--the septic system is so fragile we had to dispose of toilet paper in a garbage can; not the actual toilet. Took some getting used to. Otherwise a great getaway.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay! I have discovered a toilet paper especially designed for septic systems, so from now on TP can go directly into the toilet. I had only recently requested guests dispose of paper into the small can during the last month while I was resolving an issue. Sorry for the inconvenience.
