Bring your boots, bikes and favorite people to enjoy your own private resort. Horse shoe pits, Frisbee golf, bocce ball, croquet, cornhole, are just some of the games provided. Open meadows provide endless exploration with distant trees ringing the property for privacy.

A fire pit provides the gathering space to roast marshmallows and share adventures, at the end of the day. The large hot tub will melt away sore muscles from a rigorous hiking excursion or just provide a relaxing soak. BBQing on the deck and enjoying an evening meal, al fresco, extends the experience and at the end of the day, the comfy beds embrace, for a quiet night’s rest.

I went here with six of my good girlfriends. We get together at least once a month. By far this has been our very best girl time ever! The location, the owner, all the amenities and beauty of the house, was way more than we expected and it made our trip the most memorable vacation by far. Thank you, thank you !!!!

My wife and I wanted to take the family to the coast to share some quality time together. There were 6 of us, including our 3 grown boys, a daughter-in-law and an infant child. We needed at least four separate sleeping areas. The Applegate Ranch fit all of our needs - and then some. Let me tell you why. First, you should know that the photographs of the property are spot on. This place is absolutely beautiful. The landscaping is incredibly gorgeous. The property covers 10 acres. There are trees galore, including some really unique Redwood stands. It's really a meadow area, surrounded by stately coastal trees. Amazingly enough, there is even a 9 hole disc golf course. In the back yard you will find a fire pit with plenty of chairs to sit on. If horseshoes is your thing, then try the two side-by-side pits which are illuminated by overhead lighting. Nearby is the large propane gas bar-b-que. The house itself is three stories tall. Inside you will be amazed by the quality to detail that the owner has gone to. The paint is fresh. All of the accommodations are first class. The main level includes the living room which is equipped with a TV which has basic cable service. There is a Blu-Ray player and a small assortment of videos. Next is a large (more formal) dining room with a wood stove. Off of the dining room is a mud room in case you get too dirty while playing and having fun. Moving on you find the master bedroom and full bathroom. The master bedroom is phenomenal. There are windows all around the room, along with access to an outside porch. You will also find a very nice sitting area in this bedroom. Moving along in the main level you come to one of the most wonderful kitchens you might imagine. So much working countertop space in addition to the center island. Everything is well lit. We intended to cook most of our meals. Not knowing what utensils and supplies we needed, we brought along some of our own. Did we need them? Nope. Everything you might need to prepare a meal is in this kitchen. It was better equipped than out kitchen at home. The refrigerator is new and large, and includes an ice cube maker. A spacious dining nook is in the kitchen. In the event of a dead cell phone, there is a hard line phone in the kitchen which can be used in case of an emergency. Immediately off of the kitchen is the laundry room which is, by all measure, very large. Soap is included. And you will find additional towels in this room as well. Rounding out the main level is a half bathroom. On the second story are two very large bedrooms and a large full bathroom. The beds are most comfortable. The views from the second story are awesome. In the top level are two single beds. This level is also the play room which is well stocked with opportunities for kid fun. It has windows as well. Access to the top level is through one of the second story bedrooms. Outside on the back porch is yet another super beautiful dining option - eat outside and enjoy the ambience and coastal weather. There is also a large hammock and another very comfortable, padded sitting area. The porch includes a hot tub. We did not take advantage of the tub, so I can't really comment on it. The drive to Mendocino from the ranch was easy enough. It only takes a few minutes. Honestly, I can't say enough good things about the Applegate Ranch. The owner lives on the grounds and is a most gracious host. The house has everything you might need, even to include board games. Just bring your clothes, and any food you might wish to prepare. And then kick back and enjoy some shared time with family and Mother Nature.
