Tranquillity among the Trees
VRBO – A Place of Tranquility among the Trees We spent an enchanting fall weekend at this house last November. The layout worked perfectly for our party of four, which consisted of two couples. My husband and I stayed in the bedroom suite on the ground floor. The bed and bedding were amazingly comfortable. A pot-bellied stove (electric and very easy to operate) kept us cozy, and we had direct access to the outdoor hot tub, and then downstairs bath has a beautiful shower lined with river rocks for rinsing off afterwards. The upstairs suite was equally well appointed, and it too had direct access to the hot tub (a door off the bedroom leads directly down to the tub). I agree with others who have commented that the photos fail to do the house justice. The lovely Japanese-themed décor is wonderfully successful, making the house feel like a place of tranquility amid the trees. The well-equipped kitchen and the dining area were perfect for the dinner we prepared our first night and there were games galore for afterwards. The weather was a little crisp, but even so we couldn’t resist bundling up in sweaters to enjoy sitting on the sunny second-floor balcony that overlooks the property. We also very much appreciated the location. Previously we’d stayed further south and never ventured much beyond Mendocino. This time we took advantage of the easy drive to both Mendocino and Fort Bragg, as well as the lighthouse park and Glass Beach (where we collected handfuls of white, green and amber sea glass) and the Botanical Garden. It was an unforgettable getaway. We couldn’t recommend this rental more highly.
