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.

Incredibly Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! The home is located about a mile from beach access, and 10 minutes from Ft. Bragg. It was perfect! We had a great time staying in the loft. It was ideally located, the perfect size, absolutely beautiful, and had spectactular outside views. I am sure that when I come back to the area I will seek out this same property.

Beautiful, romantic, peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Jennifer's studio. It is as beautiful as the pictures look, peaceful, quiet, and romantic. We cooked all our meals in the wonderfully appointed kitchen and ate on the deck facing the trees or in the living room. Everything we needed was there and the only challenge was getting out the house in the morning because we were so comfortable. Jenn was very quick and obliging when we had a question, and everything went through smoothly. Highly recommend.

Mendocino Reset

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were taxed - beyond stressed and in desperate need of some quiet and place to reconnect. We could not have asked for a better place to land for a couple of days. We realized very quickly that we did not book enough time, but it was better than nothing at all. I have never been recharged so quickly. This place = pure magic. Thank you so much, Jennifer!

Perfect start to our honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I began our honeymoon at the studio mid-April. We loved the property, the town, and of course the redwoods and the coastal views. It was the absolute perfect way to begin our vacation. Extremely relaxing and peaceful. The studio was exactly how it was pictured. Everything we needed was available to us, and if we had any questions, Jennifer made herself available to help us out. Our favorite places to explore were the sea glass beach, and Navarro national park. Thank you Jennifer for opening your property to us! We had a wonderful time, and would highly recommend this property to others.

Birthday Celebration Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing and wonderful three-day weekend in Mendocino at Jennifers' Forrest Suite Studio. The posted pictures of the Studio can't capture the beautifull feel of this nicely appointed property just a couple of miles outside of Mendocino but a century away from everything. From the moment we walked in we felt at home and That we were in a in a very special place. I personally appreciated every detail that was thought out and implemented throughout this spacious Studio. We will definitely return for another visit whenever we want to partake in another peaceful mini vacay.

Mendocino Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This studio rental is one of the best places I have stayed. If I were to built a cabin in the redwoods, I would built it exactly like this one. It had everything you may need for a wonderful vacation. Thank you so much Jennifer for sharing your studio.
