Overview

Fort Bragg House Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2

Just a few minutes from Mendocino and Fort Bragg, Windrift Cottage is a perfect headquarters for your Mendocino Coast vacation. However, with all the home has to offer you may be tempted never to leave the property.

A couple minute's walk down a private path takes you to a secluded beach where you can spend the day in the sun and surf, or elect to cozy up next to the fireplace and take in dinner and a movie before retiring to the hot tub with a panoramic and private view of the pacific.

Enjoy the simplistic peace of Windrift's intimate, studio-style layout, with a leather sofa next to a gas fireplace, a wide-screen television with cable and DVD collection, a luscious, pillow-topped queen bed and a small but fully equipped kitchen with a high lounge-type table for four.

Windrift Cottage is the ideal spot to recharge and re-inspire. Relax with a good book on the deck, take a long walk on the shore, enjoy a good meal with loved-ones, take in the spectacular sunsets, nap in the warm sun.

Windrift Cottage; it's an experience you won't want to end.

Reviewer Comments:

We loved the cottage and wished we'd had another day. The view is amazing, and it was wonderful to watch how it changed throughout the day. We also loved being in the hot tub under the stars after a long day hiking. It's secluded, but with easy access to Ft. Bragg and Mendocino. Overall, the cottage felt clean and very comfortable (although the mattress topper was way too soft, and I woke up with a sore neck). The cottage is well supplied. We'd definitely recommend it and would consider returning. The only complaint is that the house instructions say renters are to clean the kitchen before they leave; for the price one pays, I don't think that's right, and we ended up wondering if the dishes and utensils had only been cleaned by the previous tenants (and, therefore, how clean they were). That aside, we enjoyed being there very much.

Reviewer Comments:

We were very comfortable, the two of us and our dog, at Windrift. It is peaceful and beautiful, and the views are outstanding. The kitchen is small, and there is nothing more than salt and pepper, so you must bring your own supplies. The refrigerator is also quite small. But the hot tub was delightful and you can take many orgeous hikes on diferent paths out on the bluffs.

2 day getaway from hot weather in antelope

  • 5 of 5

The wife and I decided to get away from the heat in the valley.

Oh my god we were so lucky to find this place.everything the previous

Reviewers said was so accurate and we absolutely loved this awesome

Little cottage. Mvr managers were totally helpful and the cottage was prestine.

The landscaping around the cottage was beautiful and well maintained.

It was so hard to leave, we really enjoyed walking on the private beach and I even

Went in and played in the waves. We had beautiful sunny weather in the low 80s and

No wind. We left the window open all nite and fell asleep to the sound of the waves.

We went out to eat the first nite and stayed in and barbecued tbones the second nite.

The jacuzzi was awesome and very clean. we will definitely be coming back here only

Next time We will spend more time here, two days just wasn't long enough.

Windrift cottage captured our hearts. Thank you to the owner and Mvr.

Would recommend to any couple and will easily get my 5star review

Reviewer Comments:

This place was perfect to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Loved being able to walk to the beach with the dog and Jug Handle State park was also right outside the back door. Beautifully appointed and the kitchen well is stocked. The landscaping is also exceptional. We opted to get takeout from one of the restaurants in Mendocino for our anniversary dinner, to enjoy on the deck, because the view is spectacular!!!
